Given the array of emotions & negative thoughts that people may be experiencing after this injustice, it’s a good time to stress the value of living the dialectic between intellectualization &raw emotionality. Walk the middle path. Stay present. Stay grounded. Stay in #WiseMind.
Practicing #mindfulness (meditation, focus) helps people get in/stay in a wise mind state, a state of flow, immersing oneself into activities, being one with what you are doing. #DBT
In other words, to cope with political (or personal) injustice & accompanying negative emotions & thoughts, one could throw themselves into something creative, their work, some activity that benefits themselves or society (#sublimation). *Note Netflix binging is not a flow state.
That’s it for now. What I have always found interesting is that DBT skillfully plagiarizes psychodynamic theory & therapy in many respects. Above, the wise mind skill of “participate” (flow, immersion into activity) can also be conceptualized as the psychoanalytic adaptive
defense mechanism, sublimation. Thus, sublimation is like wise-mind flow but a flow state applied specifically to an activity that benefits the self, others, society, or any combination. End /(FYI-this is totally original to the best of my knowledge ie integrating dbt &dynamic tx
