Is it trauma informed care or retraumatising care? ✍️🏽
#psychology #mentalhealth #nhs #dclinpsy #socialjustice Image
Despite multiple trainings and workshops encouraging trauma informed care, many of our systems and actions do quite the opposite.
Bouncing servive users around services, telling them they are not 'appropriate' for a treatment, excluding those with a personality disorder diagnosis or 'flagging' them on the system as 'high risk' and therefore to avoid.

Mr Raj: "But none of the previous doctors who treated her depression even remotely hinted at this possibility (of surgery)".

1. 55-year old Mrs Viji had started feeling sad in August 2022.
2. Their only daughter had moved to the UK for higher studies. It was assumed that her sadness was related to missing her daughter. However, the feeling of sadness increased over time. She became withdrawn and stopped participating in get-togethers with family and friends.
3. Mrs Viji did not improve even after one month, she was taken to a psychiatrist.
After detailed history, she was diagnosed to have severe depression, and was started on anti-depressant medications.

Sometimes in our services the 'entry requirements' or 'refferal criteria' can be quite rigid and exclusionary.
#nhs #mentalhealth #psychology Image
We know from research that a lot of mental health issues are complex with multiple layers of different difficulties, from trauma to eating disorders to substance misuse.
There are some services that exclude people who have a substance misuse problem, a forensic history, a personality disorder diagnosis, unstable housing situation, physical health issues and so on, as they deem it too 'complex to treat' or in need of other specialist input.

Peace Of Mind
The Owner of a coffee shop had been busy all day. Being Saturday, his shop was very crowded and the customers seemed unending.

He had been on his toes since morning. Towards the evening he felt a splitting headache surfacing.

As the clock ticked away,
his headache worsened.

Unable to bear it, he stepped out of the shop leaving his staff to look after the sales.

He walked across the street to the Pharmacy to buy himself a painkiller to relieve his headache.

He swallowed the pill and felt relieved. He knew that in a few *
minutes he would feel better.

As he strolled out of the shop, he casually asked the salesgirl, Where is the Chemist? He's not at the cash counter today.

The girl replied, Sir, he was having a splitting headache and said he was going across to your coffee shop. He said a cup of

I found the attachment between Eris and Rudeus in the first season of Mushoku Tensei fascinating. Let's take a deep dive into their evolving relationship and explore why Eris had to leave Rudeus. (Only covers S1) #MushokuTensei #Psychology #anime #manga
Eris and Rudeus start off with a rocky relationship. Eris, often resorts to violence to express her emotions. Rudeus, on the other hand has low self-esteem due to his past life experiences. This dynamic sets the stage for a rather tumultuous bond (Eisenberger & Lieberman, 2004).
However as they spend more time together their relationship begins to evolve. Rudeus helps Eris improve her behavior and develop her skills, while Eris provides Rudeus with companionship and a sense of belonging (Bowlby, 1969). Their mutual experiences foster a strong connection. Image

Let's discuss how (Earthdeus) Rudeus, the protagonist of MT experiences and deals with trauma, and how it impacted his introspective journey towards healing in Season 1.

This'll be a long one so hold on to your seats.

#MushokuTensei #anime #psychology #rudeus #manga
To understand Rudeus's trauma, we must first discuss his life before reincarnation. Rudeus experienced severe bullying/sexual abuse in school. C-PTSD can have long-lasting effects on mental health and social functioning. (D'Andrea et al., 2012)
Trauma disrupts the brain's ability to process emotions and social cues, leading to difficulties in forming and maintaining relationships (Van der Kolk, 2014). Sexual Trauma may find deviant ways of expression and for Rudeus, his manifest through shame and hypersexualization

2/9 The Allure of Power
It's no secret that people often seek power – be it in politics, business, or even personal relationships. Power can bring benefits, such as resources, influence, and control. But as the saying goes, "power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely
3/9 Power and Personality.
Research suggests that gaining power can lead to behavioral and cognitive changes, often making individuals more self-centered, less empathetic, more prone to risk-taking. This transformation is not necessarily conscious, but rather a byproduct of power
