Understanding the Effects of Social Environment on Trauma Victims

Understanding the Effects of Social Environment on Trauma Victims | Personal Growth & Change | Scoop.it

"But it turns out that most trauma victims — even survivors of combat, torture or concentration camps — rebound to live full, normal lives. That has given rise to a more nuanced view of trauma — less a poison than an infectious agent, a challenge that most people overcome but that may defeat those weakened by past traumas, genetics or other factors.

 

"Now, a significant body of work suggests that even this view is too narrow — that the environment just after the event, particularly other people’s responses, may be just as crucial as the event itself."

Tapping for self-esteem & emotional health

Tapping for self-esteem & emotional health | Personal Growth & Change | Scoop.it

Trauma and loss of self-esteem can be especially difficult when we are highly sensitive - many people say this Tapping approach to health is helpful. /

"My childhood was very difficult. My dad died in my arms when I was 14 and my mother was physically and emotionally abusive. We were poor, dysfunctional and quite unhappy. Maybe it was my own struggles that led me to know when I was 12 that what I wanted to do in life was to help other people suffer less and laugh more.” Lindsay Kenny

The Usefulness of Quieting the Mind

The Usefulness of Quieting the Mind | Personal Growth & Change | Scoop.it

By Mirabai Bush

"At Google, bright young engineers have been sitting in front of screens for most of their lives. They are outer focused. Data driven. They all had the education and intelligence to get to Google. But they didn’t have very well developed self-awareness or awareness of others. I developed a course for them, a practical, real-world meditation the employees can take with them wherever they go."

Living and Creating: Fear Is Not A Disease | TalentDevelop | Personal Growth & Change | Scoop.it

A psychologist declares fear is not a disease, and many actors and other artists embrace fear in their work, but anxiety can interfere with creativity.

 

Ben Stiller stars in and directs a movie version of Thurber’s famous story “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.” He comments about his own choices as well as the story: “At a certain point, you want to be taking chances. That’s when you’re having the most vital experiences.”

The Middle Passage: From Misery to Meaning in Midlife

The Middle Passage: From Misery to Meaning in Midlife | Personal Growth & Change | Scoop.it

I’ve recently read Jungian analyst James Hollis’s book, The Middle Passage: From Misery to Meaning in Midlife. It is one of the best books on this developmental phase, and its many opportunities, that I’ve read. The author says that childhood lasts until around age 12, the first adulthood from around ages 12 to 40, and the second adulthood–if a person chooses to progresss–from around age 40 to old age.

 

Many people never pass from childhood to adulthood developmentally, but are overgrown children, and many people never pass from the first adulthood into the second, and thus have unlived lives.


 Hollis writes that the middle passage presents us with the opportunity to reexamine our lives and to ask, “Who am I apart from my history and the roles I have played?” It is an occasion for redefining and reorienting the... (click title for more)

Feeling Like A Fraud - The Creative Mind | Personal Growth & Change | Scoop.it

People who feel like impostors will often "play it safe" by not even attempting a creative project, out of a self-limiting belief of being incompetent.

 

Actor Emma Watson commented about its impact for her:

“It’s almost like the better I do, the more my feeling of inadequacy actually increases, because I’m just going, Any moment, someone’s going to find out I’m a total fraud, and that I don’t deserve any of what I’ve achieved.

The Power of Vulnerability - Brené Brown | Personal Growth

The Power of Vulnerability - Brené Brown | Personal Growth | Personal Growth & Change | Scoop.it

"Too often we lose sight of the fact that vulnerability is the birthplace of joy, belonging, creativity, authenticity, and love.”


Dr. Brené Brown has interviewed hundreds of people as part of an ongoing study of vulnerability.

“The research shows that we try to ward disappointment with a shield of cynicism, disarm shame by numbing ourselves against joy, and circumvent grief by shutting off our willingness to love,” explains Dr. Brown.

“When we become aware of these patterns, she teaches, we begin to become conscious of how much we sacrifice in the name of self-defense—and how much richer our lives become when we open ourselves to vulnerability."

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) or Tapping is "a healing modality that combines ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology."


Cheryl Richardson on the free Tapping World Summit that begins on Monday, February 24, 2014. "While flying with my husband, Michael, we hit rough weather and I began to panic. Because he was trained in the tapping technique early on, Michael knew how to quickly turn my panic into peace. Within fifteen minutes I was riding the rough air without fear.  None. And I've continued to fly with ease ever since. That's when I decided to learn tapping myself. I've used it with family, friends, and workshop participants and it's the easiest, quickest method I've seen for dealing with all kinds of issues...like physical pain, weight loss, anxiety, healing your body, overcoming emotional obstacles, and much more."
