Memory and Intelligence

People commonly repress memories of traumatic experiences and hypnosis can be useful for retrieving these memories. Some people have a problem with depression or eating disorder which are issues from a trauma that happened to the person. Childhood abuse or incest which the person cannot recall can be remembered through hypnosis by a therapist.

      Women and men had traumatic events occurred to them. Childhood sexual abuse prevalence is 28 percent of women and 16 percent of men. Physical abuse as a child prevalence is 40 percent of women and 53 percent of men. Any type of event that happens quick and life-threatening is something traumatic. A child's parent went to the hospital and died suddenly is a form of trauma. The child can forget her whole life experiences before the trauma, it just erased like the child was never alive. Other times traumatic events overlap, for example, a child got abused and right after the abuser kick the child out of the house. Children and young adulthood trauma might need to deal with loneliness, betrayal of boundaries, trust issues, isolation, and vulnerability. Schnelzer,  (2018).

Although they are several treatments, the person seeks such as dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). A parent can cause a child not to trust also when the parent does not validate the child’s needs, for example, a child says” Mommy, I want to eat.” The parent denies the child’s needs and says “No, you are not hungry.”
Trauma changes a person basic belief about people and the world, therefore, it is better to get help from professionals. Trauma is when you react with fear, helplessness or horror from an experience. It can take a toll on your physical health as your mental health. The person might turn to smoke, overeating, drinking alcohol or use drugs to deal with bad emotions.
Another way to deal with trauma is using dissociate defense “leaving the body” or disappearing. The event or trauma is stored in a different hard drive. The loss of language can be the result of trauma because that part of the brain was offline.
The stress from trauma can be detrimental and it can kill the person. However, with the proper therapy can help the person to deal with the stress. Although the person might repress the event of trauma once the person understands his or her personality, the road to recovery would be easy.
In order for the person to get heal, he or she must go back to the time the trauma occurred. Relationship with others could be null as a defense mechanism unless the other person had the same trauma. The person may experience tightness in the chest, feelings of fear, shame or powerless and knot in the stomach are all side effect of the trauma.
A person will create protective habits to survive trauma, therefore, it can be very hard to unlearn. Some people can numb their senses, it helps change how a person takes the information. Raja, (2012).

          Freud and Janet stated the correlation between such problems as eating disorder or depression could be an underline suppress the memory of a history of childhood abuse or incest which the clients have no recollection of. The two-psychologist used hypnosis to help the client to remember the trauma. They used this type of therapy to help the patient with his or her present's symptoms. Orne, Whitehouse, Orne & Dinges. (2009).


     The first technological war was the first world war, ten million people died on the battlefield and many others got hurt physically and mentally. (Keegan 3; Winter 15-53). Lots of soldiers suffered from hysterical symptoms, such as deafness and some visual impairment. Hypnosis was used at that time to help them psychologically. Some of the doctors did not believe in hypnosis and they think the doctor who performed hypnosis can overpower the patients similar to rape. Hales. (2011).

       Scholars from the early history of mesmerism and hypnotism did not find proof of retrieval memory during the late 1700s and early to mid-1800s. They did not find any evidence and they believed that Gassner told the patients they had the devil in them and that was the reason of trembling or shaking of the body. Some of the patients were exorcism which is the case of satanic or multiple personalities. Patihis, Burton & Helena J. (2015).

         Hypnosis is used by the therapist to help a person to remember a trauma, Therapist use hypnoanalysis which was made on the theory that ' repressed traumatic memories' can be reached by hypnosis to cure the person of psychological sickness. Hypnosis helps people to remember an unpleasant event. The therapist takes the person back to something that happened when the person was young. Mark P. (2011).

Hypnosis is placebo without deception. Kirsh, (1994); Raz, (2007). A person suffered a traumatic event which left the person without the recollection of the event, can work with a therapist to use hypnosis to retrieve the memory.

ADHD

The two major components of treatment for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are behavioral therapy and medication.

Home and school interventions: Parents can help their child’s behavior with specific goals such as: (1) maintaining a daily schedule, (2) keeping distractions to a minimum, (3) setting small and reasonable goals, (4) rewarding positive behavior, (5) using charts and checklists to keep a child “on task,” and (6) finding activities in which the child will succeed (sports, hobbies). Children with ADHD may require adjustments in the structure of their educational experience, including tutorial assistance and the use of a resource room. Many children function well throughout the entire school day with their peers. However, some patients with ADHD will benefit from a “pull-out session” to complete tasks, review specific homework assignments, and develop “management” skills necessary for higher education. Extended time for class work/tests may be necessary as well as assignments were written on the board and preferential seating near the teacher. If necessary, an IEP (Individualized Educational Program) should be developed and reviewed periodically with the parents. ADHD is considered a disability falling under U.S. Public Law 101-476 (Individuals With Disabilities Education Act or IDEA). As such, individuals with ADHD may qualify for “appropriate accommodations within the regular classroom” within the public-school system. In addition, the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) indicates that secular private schools may be required to provide similar “appropriate accommodations” in their institution.
Psychotherapy: ADHD coaching, a support group, or both can help teens feel more normal and provide well-focused peer feedback and coping skills. Counselors such as psychologists, child and adolescent psychiatrists, behavioral/developmental pediatricians, clinical social workers, and advanced practice nurses can be invaluable to both the children and families. Behavior modification and family therapy are usually necessary for the best possible outcome.

Oh no you did’nt


 Oh no you did’nt!!
by Javis “Jay” Brunson @JavisJay
 Before you respond to life’s events and tell your vendor, business partner, boss, co-workers, buddy or spouse to go play in the middle of rush hour traffic or call them everything but a child of God, take time to think clearly and calmly about what you are doing.  Before you respond to the situations remember who you are and the direction you want to be moving.                                                   A frantic, emotional reaction made in haste can often push you back even more than the event to which you are reacting. Certainly, it is sensible to respond promptly to whatever life sends your way. Yet that does not mean that you must respond thoughtlessly and carelessly. Before you do something that might take years to overcome, take a moment to thoughtfully consider your response.  Remember, all experiences are an opportunity for growth. Have a GREAT day and continue doing what you LOVE to do!

Lessons

I left my phone at the karate school so I went on a phone diet. I had to use an old clock from my son to set the alarm for the morning. I had a good night sleep and I woke up at six am but went back to sleep. God shows me something he needed me to understand. When I lost the business which was supposed to help pay the personal and business bills, my friend from the job at the hospital who I thought cared about me told me that her brother needed help at the family business. her brother knew that I was making money with my blogs which mean I have a large follower on social media. I understood that he wanted to use my network to build his business which he inherited from his father and mother. I learned the business and most of the times he had me write checks for a large sum of money to pay another company. I am familiar with handling a large amount of money. I did some of the quickbook for the business also but he needed someone to run the business full-time while he goes in the field. His mother came to the factory every day and she brought him foods. They had a big room for the employees to meet and for him to meet with other business people. I watched how his mother took care of him and she brought a large plate of foods from the restaurant that her daughter owned with her husband. The foods tasted so good and I was able to take some foods home, however, the pay was not good enough. As a single mother with two children, I need to make at least three thousand dollars.

Drugs addiction

Many people are addicted to prescription drugs and part of the reasons are the doctors who prescribe the drugs to them maybe after an accident or to relieve pain after surgery. Some people can not stop using the drug once they start because of the chemical in the drug. In the past, the drugs which the doctors gave to the patients were not that addictive. Also in this century, people are under a lot of stress and the drugs help them to function as best as they can. Another theory is the government used drug problem as a way to create racism and increase incarceration of so many black people. Some of the drugs are from other countries and yes the government took down many drug lords and the distribution still continue. Wheelock, Uggen, (2006)
There are about 2.1 million inmates which are the rate of 726 per 100,000 in the population compared to 210,000 in 1974. Most of the men in jails are blacks American. The ratio of male in prison is approximately 47% are Blacks, 33% Whites and 17% Hispanics. Society uses drug problem to incarcerate most of the black men in the United States which make the black families remain at the poverty level. After black men paid for their crimes whether it was a crime such as one full cigarete with marijuana or other drugs, they will pay for their crimes for the rest of their lives. They will not be able to get some jobs, they can get food stamps and they may not be able to get a place to live.

Criminal Sanctions and Victimization

Criminal sanctions and victimization work to form a system of disadvantage that perpetuates stratification and poverty.

“A sanction is a kind of response meant to reward or punish behavior. Positive sanctions reward conforming behavior, and negative sanctions punish behavior that violates norms. Positive sanctions increase the likelihood that a particular behavior will continue. For example, teachers provide students with positive sanctions by giving higher grades for better work. Good grades reward students and increase the likelihood that they will want to continue to learn and achieve in school. In contrast, negative sanctions punish behavior with the goal of stopping it. For example, police officers give negative sanctions when ticketing drivers for violating traffic laws. Drivers who violate traffic laws put others in danger. Tickets decrease the likelihood that drivers will take risks on the road. Tickets can help society members remain safe by reducing reckless behavior.” Korgen and Furst, (2012)

Wheelock, D. & Uggen, C. (2006)

Punishment impacts individuals convicted of felonies, as well as their families, peer groups, neighborhoods, and racial group.

“Between 1980 and 1996, the population of drug offenders in state prisons grew by more than 16% annually. Mandatory sentencing laws created racial inequities as Blacks and Hispanics-Latinos have been the majority of those arrested and imprisoned for drug offenses.” Korgen and Furst, (2012)

 

After controlling for population differences, African Americans are incarcerated approximately seven times as often as Whites.

“For example, a 2009 Pew Social Demographic study revealed that Black and Hispanic Americans have far less confidence than Whites in their local police to effectively and fairly address the violence problem.” Korgen and Furst, (2012)

 

Variation in criminal punishment is linked to economic deprivation.

As the number of felons and former felons rises, collateral sanctions play an ever-larger role in racial and ethnic stratification, operating as an interconnected system of disadvantage.

“Current research has also begun to disentangle the impact of criminal sanctions from self-selection into crime in other arenas of social life, such as the family, educational attainment, and civic engagement.” Wheelock and Uggen, (2016)

If You Want Greatness, Take Responsibility

 


If You Want Greatness, Take Responsibility

By Matt Mayberry @Matt_Mayberry

 

“If you had to pick one quality that someone needs to possess, what would that be?” someone recently asked me.

After I was forced to give just one answer, I said, “If I had to pick just one quality, it would be taking complete and full responsibility for your life.”

Yes, there are a plethora of different qualities and habits that must be developed to truly become great, but there is no better starting point than taking complete responsibility for your life.

We live in a world where maximum results are expected with minimal effort given. If something goes wrong, it’s someone else’s fault. If you’re not happy financially, it’s the economy’s fault. If you’re not happy in your marriage, it’s your partner’s fault. If you’re not being compensated as much as you would like, the company doesn’t pay enough.

Any of those sound familiar? Chances are some hit home. It’s human nature to blame circumstances or the next person instead of taking ownership. However, in order to live a truly exceptional life, you must put an end to this way of thinking immediately.

So how can we once and for all start taking complete responsibility of our lives? Here are three ways to help get you started.

1. Decide.

It all starts with a firm decision to do so. It sounds simple, but there is a very small percentage of people who actually make the decision to take responsibility for their lives. They keep going back to their old ways and lose sight of the fact that they are the ones in the driver seat.

Force yourself to stop looking outside of yourself for things you are in control of. It’s a simple concept, but not easy by any stretch of the means. From here on out, make the firm decision that no single event or person is going to dictate your level of achievement.

2. Stop playing the blame game.

A large number of men and women from all walks of life struggle with this one, including myself from time to time. As I mentioned above, what’s easy to do is to blame your partner when a relationship gets shaky. What’s easy to do is to blame the government for a lack of financial success.

It’s absolutely imperative that you throw away every single excuse and start taking ownership in every area of your life. There is no way we can ever grab a hold of our lives completely when we are too caught up in the awful habit of playing the blame game.

3. Make a promise to yourself.

Something that has worked wonderfully for me is to write a simple creed on a notecard promising myself that taking complete responsibility for my life is something I will abide by every waking moment. It can be something as simple as, “I, Matt Mayberry, promise that I will never lose sight of taking full responsibility for my life.”

Legacies have been built and history has been made by men and women who decided to take complete ownership of their lives. Are you ready to do the same?
