The Trouble with Trauma

 In child and youth services today, being therapeutic, it appears, is to have adopted a particular understanding of the impact of trauma on the brain, behaviour, and developmental processes; to see most human dysfunction through this lens; and to seek to remediate the negative impacts of trauma using mainly insights and strategies that are congruent with this particular perspective. It is a wholesale case of ‘out with the old and in with the new’.

In other words, it is not just your love of udon, poetry or tiger lilies that makes you a self – it is the collection of these and other interests, all working together to guide your behaviour. 


Specifically, a collection of interests becomes a substantive self at the moment it exerts control over its component interests. The need for such control comes from constraints faced by the collection that are not faced by its components – the competition for resources that are shared across the components. The resolution of this competition is attention. So, in my view, the self comes into being with the first act of attention, or the first time attention favours one interest over another.
