It is mucho important to understand that within your personal journey of healing, it is not going to be linear. However, if your "stinkin thinkin" takes you to a negative place, retrain your brain not to. Have a plan in place prior about something or someone that brings you JOY and meditate on that. You got this, at first you don't succeed try try again!! #girlboss#girlgetup#therapist#grief#healing@arschmitty
Do you understand when you are advised to:
"NOT FOCUS ON THE NEGATIVE?"
I would love to remember only the times I was hugged and loved. But somehow, my brain has stored the times I felt abandoned and unloved.
We are kind of biologically and chemically wired to focus on the negative for survival - to identify flight situations and run as hell.
Imagine being aware of the negative aspects of our lives, of ourselves, and staying to deal and heal them anyways?
Come on, come to our spa. A peaceful place that you can get with a massage from our therapist.
calm your mind for a moment from the hustle and bustle of the city. this place is on a very remote island. far from the noise and pollution of a crowded city.
Günlük ya da bilimsel hayatta birçok psikolojik bilgi aktarılıyor. Peki bu bilgiler nasıl elde ediliyor? Bugün psikolojik araştırma, veri toplama yöntemlerini inceleyeceğiz. Psikolojik araştırma yöntemleri, laboratuvar şartları, istatistiksel analiz, derin ve anlamlı ve gerçek dünya olarak dörde ayrılıyor. Peki ya bu yöntemler ne anlama geliyor?
• Laboratuvar şartları: Psikologlar laboratuvarda oluşturdukları iki veya daha fazla kontrollü koşulları ölçmeye çalıştıkları deneyler yaparlar. Örn; Kafein ve tepki süresi arasındaki ilişkiyi ölçmek.
• İstatistiksel Analiz: Psikologlar, insanların kişiliklerini karşılaştırmak için çeşitli testler tasarlar. Örn; gelecekte nasıl davranacaklarını ölçmek. Ayrıca bu veriler, grafikler oluşturmak için kullanılabilir. Örn; kişiliğin konuma göre nasıl değiştiğini göstermek.
• Derin ve Anlamlı: Bazen psikologlar insanların davranışlarının ardındaki anlamla ilgilenirler ve gözlemlerinin kolayca verilere dönüştürülmediği konuları keşfetmek için nitel teknikler kullanırlar. Örn; bir psikolog özlemin yapısını araştırmak için, insanların duyusal deneyimleri hakkında daha fazla bilgi edinmek için görüşmeleri ve açık uçlu anketleri kullanabilir.
• Gerçek dünya: Kontrollü bir deneyden veya röportaj gibi niteliksel teknikler kullanarak anlamlı sonuçlar elde etmek her zaman mümkün değildir. Davranışın çevreye veya duruma bağlı olduğu durumlarda, psikologlar durumun içine girer ve davranışları sistematik olarak analiz etmeye çalışırlar. Örn; toplu taşıma.

Victims of childhood trauma often exhibit characteristics including seeing themselves as “bad and unworthy”, seen by others as irritable, hostile, aggressive, emotionally detached and/or depressed. They may have trouble focusing, be anxious and/or confused about earlier life events. Their daily functioning is commonly disrupted by intrusive and persistent recollections and sensory re-experiencing of the traumatic event they encountered
Traumatic experiences change connections and activations in the brain. Changes in a traumatized brain often affect several areas. The prefrontal cortex (the thinking center)- becomes under activated, the anterior cingulate cortex (emotional regulation center)- becomes under activated and the amygdala (the fear center)- becomes OVER activated. This is why the traumatized brain is often considered “bottom-heavy” (Swipe ⬅️ for the image). Individuals are in constant Fear mode, hyper-alert to danger and hypo-alert to pleasures of daily living. Trauma left untreated can often result in issues later on with anger management, addiction and criminal activity. .
Evidence based treatment such as trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) with a competent, licensed trauma specialist often helps children and adolescents suffering from post-traumatic stress through affective modulation, cognitive coping, exposure therapy, mindfulness training, in-vivid exposure along with other forms of treatment

I've been off the grid at a family reunion. I seriously considered bringing Esther Perel's State of Affairs just to stir up the rumor mill. I've really been in a @drdansiegel kick lately though so I ended up bringing his latest book, Aware. I really enjoyed how simply he explained mindfulness. It's a great introduction to the topic. 📚

Our bodies are meant to change as we age.
Even if you love the appearance of your body-it’s going to change.
Putting your self worth into something external that WILL change-is a recipe for unhappiness.
The true aim is to uncover your sense of identity outside of your body, to explore your passions, to strengthen your relationships.
And ultimately, to fall in love with your life 🙌🏻
Despite what diet culture and your eating disorder may tell you, we are SO much more than bodies. 🌟
