The Denial of Trauma

The psychological definition of trauma is “damage to the psyche that occurs as a result of a distressing event or an overwhelming amount of stress that exceeds the ability of the individual to cope and integrate the emotions involved.” This definition often gets simplified into the dictionary definition of “a deeply disturbing or distressing event,” which is where we all get a little lost. It’s very easy to understand trauma as something horrific, like war, or mass violence, or a natural disaster. It’s the “exceeding ability to cope and integrate emotions” section that gets lost on us.

———————

We need to get rid of the view that trauma is an action (an event). The more psychology tells us about trauma, the more it becomes clear that trauma is a reaction. Most importantly, it is an individual reaction.
Very, very exceedingly helpful.

How they mess with clients:
Belief may not move mountains but it can certainly produce a powerful psychological, and sometimes even physical, cure. It's been found that believing whether an antidepressant will work for you is the most important aspect of whether it will or not!(1)
And more research found that depression is essentially made up of negative expectations about the future.(2)
Therapists of all flavours should, I think, be expert in subtly garnering, building and focusing the hope of their clients and in this week's Clear Thinking 'How To Help Your Clients Believe They WILL Get Better' I will give you three strategies to do just that.
Here's to the future,
Mark

The author seems to me to be caught in a trance of his own grandiosity.

Not just about doctors, despite the title, but mental health professionals in general.

Believable.

If the guy can't handle being asked personal questions, I think he should be looking for a new profession instead of writing articles.

Some of these therapists are nuts.
