Wortherkunft von Trauma

Heilsame Kommunikation mit Verstorbenen

Der klinische Psychologe Allan Botkin entwickelte 1995 eine Denksysteme überschreitende überdurchschnittlich erfolgreiche Trauma- und Trauertherapie (Induced After-Death Communication [IADC]) unter Zuhilfenahme der seit 2006 offiziell anerkannten EMDR-Therapie. Ursprünglich erprobte er sie an Kriegsveteranen, die an Posttraumatischer Belastungsstörung (PTSD) litten, in einem Militärhospital. Nach Sichtung von rund 1700 Interviews mit Veteranen des Vietnamkrieges stellte die Psychologin Rachel MacNair fest, dass Soldaten, die getötet hatten oder glaubten, getötet zu haben, sehr viel öfter PTSD aufwiesen. Stew Brown, Leiter einer Beratungsstelle in Colorado, sieht die Verarbeitung von Tötungserlebnissen, als spirituelle, nicht als psychologische Aufgabe, weil man ein Stück von sich selbst weggeschossen hat, das Vertrauen Gottes enttäuscht hat.

 

Bei der induzierten Nach-Tod-Kommunikation stellt Botkin eine für Anwesende fühlbare Kommunikation mit den Verstorbenen her, auf die sich die Trauer des Klienten richtet. Seine damit einhergehenden Gefühle von Schuld und Wut werden dabei umgangen. Die Begegnung mit jenseitigen Wesenheiten, die den Patienten während der Sitzung von seinen Schuldgefühlen an ihrem Tod freisprechen, spendet ein Gefühl des Friedens, was wiederum den Trauernden in 80-90% der Fälle erlaubt, ihr Trauma zu überwinden – im Gegensatz zu wenig wirksamen konventionellen Trauertherapien.

 

 

Die britische Forscherin und Autorin für paranormale Phänomene Renée Haynes hat den Begriff Akzeptanzschwelle (engl. boggle threshold) geprägt. Die Schwelle ist dort angesiedelt, wo Konsens-Orientierte es vorziehen, für sie unerklärliche Tatsachen – wie die Weiterexistenz des Bewusstseins nach dem physischen Tod – zu leugnen und im modernen rationalen Skeptizismus Zuflucht suchen.

 

Da die IADC-Therapie die Akzeptanzschwelle der allermeisten rational orientierten Wissenschaftler überschreitet und derjenigen, die Themen erst als Wahrheit akzeptieren, wenn sie streng naturwissenschaftlichen Kriterien genügen, wird in der Fachwelt kaum über Botkins revolutionären Trauertherapieansatz diskutiert, der seit 2003 auch der nichtmilitärischen Öffentlichkeit zur Verfügung steht.

 

Ende des 19. und Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts wurde das Phänomen der Medialität von einigen berühmten Wissenschaftlern gründlich untersucht. Sie entlarvten einige Betrüger, aber kamen letztlich zu dem Schluss, dass die echten Medien "den Toten" tatsächlich als Kommunikationskanal dienen können. Trotz ihres hohen Standes in der wissenschaftlichen Gemeinschaft wurden solche Forscher von ihren Kollegen attackiert. […] Sir William Crookes, ein ausgezeichneter britischer Chemiker und Physiker, war einer von denen, die von ihren Kollegen scharf kritisiert wurde. Crookes antwortete darauf: Ich habe nie gesagt, es sei möglich; ich sagte nur, es sei wahr.

 

Crookes, Sir William Barrett, Dr. Richard Hodgson, Sir Oliver Lodge, Dr. James H. Hyslop und andere Forscher erbrachten überwältigende Nachweise für das Weiterleben von Verstorbenen in ihren Untersuchungen. Sie bestätigen auch die Existenz einer jenseitigen Welt, worin sich körperlose Geistwesen auf unterschiedlichen Entwicklungsstufen aufhalten. Dr. Alfred Russel Wallace, der zusammen mit Charles Darwin die Evolutionstheorie als Folge eines naturimmanenten Ausleseverfahrens entwickelt hat, gab an, dass die Nachweise für die Kommunikation mit Verstorbenen ebenso überzeugend seien wie die in anderen wissenschaftlichen Sektoren. Auch in jüngster Zeit ignorieren etablierte Wissenschaftler aktuelle Studienergebnisse hinsichtlich der Wirkung von Gebeten und Vergebung. Skeptikerorganisationen attackieren obendrein die Nahtodforschung, Jenseits- und Medien-Forschung, die beispielsweise Prof. Gary E. Schwartz im Rahmen des VERITAS Research Projektes an der Universität Tucson, Arizona, durchführt. Sie wenden ein, dass Phänomene dieser Art nicht wiederholbar und zu beweisen seien, weswegen sie ihre wissenschaftliche Untersuchung nicht befürworten.

Posthume Vergötterung des Kinderschänders Klaus Kinski, der seine älteste Tochter vom 5. bis zum 19. Lebensjahr missbraucht hat

 

  • Das Unfassbare [fortgesetzten sexuellen Missbrauch durch ihren Vater Klaus Kinski] habe ich als nötiges Übel ertragen. Es war weniger schlimm, als unsichtbar zu sein und störend. […] Wenn ich ihn als einen wütenden, tobenden Berserker gesehen habe in einem Film, dann habe ich ihn nicht als Schauspieler empfunden, denn so haben wir ihn eins zu eins im Alltag erlebt.

Transgenerationelle Traumatisierung

  • Traumata sind emotionale, neurophysiologische Erbstücke. Unaufgelöst wandern sie von einer Generation zur nächsten. Traumatische Inhalte wohnen in Worten genauso wie im Nichtgesagten, sie sabotieren die Subjekte insbesondere da, wo nicht gesprochen, gefragt werden darf. Weder auf der Zeitachse noch in der Biographie des Einzelnen in den Täter- und Mitläuferfamilien gab es ja eine Stunde Null. Dieselben Menschen lebten weiter, ihre Deformationen brachten sie mit in die Familien, die sie selber gründeten.
    Transgenerationelle Traumatisierung nennt die Psychoanalyse das subkutane Weiterreichen traumatischer Inhalte. Traumata entstehen durch Erfahrungen, die derart überfordernd sind, das Nerven und Psyche nicht angemessen reagieren können. Was passiert, macht "fassungslos", es übersteigt das seelische und körperliche Fassungsvermögen, es sprengt den seelischen Rahmen. Je jünger ein Mensch ist, desto nachhaltiger. Artikel Die eigene Familie als NS-Archiv, präsentiert von der deutschen Zeitung Der Tagesspiegel, Caroline Fetscher, 20. Mai 2013

 

  • Frage: Warum sind sie so wenig in der Lage, das zu tun, was sie mit einer gesunden Psyche tun könnten: konstruktiv mit anderen Menschen umzugehen, wirkliche Probleme zu lösen und so weiter?
    Antwort: Wir brauchen mehr Aufklärung darüber, was auf der psychischen Ebene läuft. Dass diejenigen, die andere – in welcher Funktion und Gestalt auch immer – terrorisieren, Menschen sind, deren Psyche schon in ihrer Kindheit kaputt gemacht worden ist. Dass das Menschen sind, die dann nicht mehr wissen, was mit ihnen los ist, die vor sich selbst davonlaufen und in einen blinden Aktionismus verfallen und sich in einer Täter-Opfer-Dynamik heillos verfangen. Mit ihrem blinden Aktionismus ziehen sie dann andere in ihre Traumata mit hinein.

  • [I]n den Gesellschaften drücken sich ihre Traumatisierungen anhand von massenhaft auftretenden negativen sozialen Symptomen aus sowie in den gesellschaftlich bevorzugten Überlebensstrategien, um mit diesen Symptomen umzugehen. Solche sozialen Symptome können u.a. sein:
  • Hohe Raten von Abtreibungen, viele frühe Schwangerschaften bei jugendlichen Müttern,
  • viele Frauen, die ungewollt Mutter werden und zu viele Kinder bekommen,
  • hohe Raten von Geburtskomplikationen, die mit schweren körperlichen und psychischen Verletzungen für Mütter und Neugeborene verbunden sind (Zangen-, Vakuum-, »Kaiser«schnitt-Geburten),
  • geringe Anzahl stillender Mütter,
  • hoher Prozentsatz von Babys, die zu früh und zu lange von ihren Müttern getrennt werden (Kinderkrippen, Weggeben der Neugeborenen zu den Großeltern, ältere Geschwister, die sich wie Eltern um die jüngeren Geschwister kümmern müssen),
  • frühe Verwahrlosung von vielen Kleinkindern mit psychosomatischen Erkrankungsfolgen (z.B. langes Bettnässen, Ohren-, Hals- und Hauterkrankungen),
  • sehr viele alleinerziehende Mütter,
  • hohe Fallzahlen von sexueller Traumatisierung von Babys, Klein-, Vorschul- und Schulkindern,
  • schulischer Konkurrenzdruck mit hohen Raten von »Schulversagern«, mit Folgen wie »Depressivität«, »Hyperaktivität« oder »Mobbing« bei den Schülern,
  • hoher Druck auf die Eltern, Familien- und Arbeitsleben in einer Konkurrenzökonomie zu »vereinbaren«,
  • Ausbeutung und Lohn-Sklaverei,
  • hohe Arbeitslosigkeitsquoten bei der arbeitsfähigen Bevölkerung,
  • weitverbreitete Geldarmut in allen Lebensaltern,
  • keine Altersabsicherung oder niedrige Renten für einen Großteil der arbeitenden Menschen,
  • hohe Verbrechensraten (Diebstähle, Einbrüche, Betrügereien, Morde) und viele Menschen, die nach Gefängnisstrafen oft noch stärker psychisch gestört sind als zuvor,
  • Gewalt- und Actionfilme auf allen Medienkanälen, gewaltverherrlichende Computerspiele,
  • allgegenwärtige Pornographie und Prostitution mit den dazu-gehörigen kriminellen Milieus,
  • weitverbreiteter Suchtmittelkonsum und süchtiges Verhalten in verschiedenster Form (Medikamente, Alkohol, Heroin, Kokain, Designer-Drogen, Spiel-, Kauf-, Arbeits-, Fress- oder Beziehungssucht),
  • hohe Raten chronifizierten körperlichen Leidens und ein Gesundheitssystem, das dafür keine effektiven Heilbehandlungen anbieten kann,
  • hohe Raten von Menschen mit chronifizierten psychischen Auffälligkeiten, die durch das Psychiatrie- und Psychotherapie-System nicht geheilt, sondern nur verwaltet werden (»Drehtür-Psychiatrie«),
  • hohe Selbstmordraten,
  • Massenmedien, welche die parteiische Deutungshoheit über soziale und politische Ereignisse beanspruchen und damit Menschen nicht klüger machen, sondern ungebildet halten und manipulieren,
  • Wissenschaften, die Ideologien erfinden und weiter befördern, statt über sie aufzuklären,
  • Rassismus in seinen vielfältigen Formen (wegen Hautfarbe, Geschlecht, Nationalität),
  • hoher Zulauf zu extremistischen politischen Parteien und ausufernde Hasstiraden in den sozialen Medien,
  • immer weitergehende Überwachung und Ausspionierung der Privatsphäre durch staatliche Instanzen,
  • Terror, der sowohl von Staaten wie von Gruppen aus der Bevölkerung ausgeübt wird,
  • hohe Ausgaben für Militärs, Geheimdienste und die Waffenproduktion oder für die Waffenbeschaffung,
  • permanente Kriege und Kriegsbereitschaft,
  • immer weiter wachsender Flüchtlingsströme.
Wenn also ein hoher Prozentsatz von Menschen in einem sozialen Gefüge in Täter-Opfer-Spaltungen feststeckt, hat das zahlreiche und verheerende Folgen. Auf der politischen Ebene sind das Krieg, Gewalt, Terror und Rassismus. […]
Ist die Täter-Opfer-Spirale einmal in Gang gekommen, ist es schwer, sie wieder zu stoppen. Sie dreht sich unablässig in zwischenmenschlichen Beziehungen und saugt immer weitere Menschen in ihre Dynamik hinein.

General quotes

Personal avowals

  • When a [pedophiliac] abuser is a serial offender and has gone so far beyond normalcy and is willing to use any kind of trickery to lure a victim and lie so easily, that kind of abuser is nefarious and intractable to rehabilitation. And those are the kinds of abusers, it's sad to say, the orthodox Jewish community has done everything to shelter and protect and guard. And I find it consternating. I am nonplussed. I don't understand what would drive the orthodox Jewish community to protect abusers. I don't have the answers. Sadly I don't. […] Maybe it is up the historians to look back at this era and explain and rationalize and elaborate on the motives and reasons for rabbis to help one another in covering up one of the most exorable, odious and hideous crimes against humanity.

Exploration of the Sacred Wound

  • By experientially exploring your core wound, you can render it sacred. Your wound holds a key to your destiny. By surrendering to the grief and frightful memories at the heart of the wound, no longer distancing yourself from what you uncover there, your psyche is torn open so that new questions can be asked about who you are at your roots. These fomenting questions facilitate the death of your old story and the birth of a larger story, a soul story, one revealed by the wounding itself. The goal in sacred wound work is not to patch up your small story, or to heal the adolescent ego, but to disidentify from both. The wound becomes sacred when you are ready to release your old story and become the vehicle through which your soul story can be lived into the world.
    By courageously diving into your core wound, patiently allowing the suffering to do its work, neither indulging nor repressing the pain, you reach the bedrock of your psyche, where the most profound truths of this lifetime awaits. But you must avoid making sense of your pain too soon, finding relief too quickly, blaming someone for your anguish, or seeking revenge. Don't cave in and seek refuge in self-blame, self-pity, or playing the role of the victim or martyr; or through denial, cynicism, abandoning your own dreams and values, or paranoid confidence in a never-ending series of further woundings. Allow the wound to do its work on you even if you descend into a pit of hopelessness. If you remain there long enough, you'll be shorn of the personal patterns and attachments that must die so you can be reborn into a greater life. Bill Plotkin, Ph.D., US American depth psychologist, wilderness rites guide, ecotherapist, author, Nature and the Human Soul.

Shedding deep-seated cultural programming

  • It is very hard to unlearn this lesson that you are nobody and nothing. Video interview with Colin Ross, M.D., Canadian-American psychiatrist, clinician, researcher, lecturer and author in the field of dissociation and trauma-related disorders, Childhood Trauma & Sexual Abuse | Child Mental Health, presented by Psychetruth, host-correspondent Corrina Rachel, YouTube film, minute 12:10, 14:57 minutes duration, posted 20. December 2012
  • Data that goes into the subconscious during a trauma cannot be released from the subconscious until a shift of the same magnitude or intensity is again attained. As a result, though we might be able to recall the traumatic event, we cannot change any attitude we may have toward the experience (trauma). Neither can we alter how we feel or release the experience until we reach the amplitude of the original traumatic event again. Rev. Rosalyn L. Bruyere (*1946) US American energy healer, aura reader, spiritual teacher, white honorary medicine woman, founder of The Healing Light Center Church, Sierra Madre, California, Wheels of Light, Touchstone, 12.

  • Addiction is not the fundamental problem, but the addict’s desperate and doomed attempt to solve a problem – that of unbearable emotional pain, self-loathing, and emptiness.
    Trauma and childhood emotional loss are the template for addictions. They instill the pain, engender the self-loathing, and create the emptiness. Crucially, they program the very chemistry and physiology of the brain to make the cerebral circuits more receptive to the soothing or exciting effects of substances. Interventions, treatment programs, laws, social opprobrium do not work – often make the addiction more tenacious, in fact – because they do not address causes, only behaviours. Behaviours are effects and you don’t solve a problem by tampering with effects.

  • There is a man (Donald Trump) who said, not verbatim, 'The world is a horrible place', and he is the president of the United States right now.
    And what created that world in his mind? The childhood trauma that he endured – in a family where father was a rageoholic autocrat who demeaned his children, and a mother who couldn't protect him, and his brother died who died of alcoholic disease. This man has to aggrandize himself and be very powerful and have a big penis – and everything to compensate for his actual smallness, which is what his core belief is and for which he is trying every moment of his desparate life to compensate. It's the nature of a traumatic society that such a man becomes our leader.

Gilligan's insight of gendered splits

  • If you think of the splits – reason/emotion, mind/body, self/relationships – you know how they’re gendered.
    Mind, self, thought, is gendered masculine and elevated.
    Emotion, relationships and body are gendered feminine and like women idealized and devalued. […]
There’s a convergence now of findings from developmental psychology and neuroscience that puts in place a very different story about us as humans and says that when these splits occur, they are signs of injury or trauma.

Flight and fight ☯ Tend and befriend

  • When we feel safe we are able to engage our social nervous system allowing us to connect to others, feel playful, feel love, and relax into connection. When we experience threat we will engage our social nervous system as an attempt to re-establish connection and safety. For example, "tend and befriend" behaviors are a stress response that attempts to re-establish a safe relational bond. However, if our social nervous system attempts to resolve stress are unsuccessful we will resort to evolutionary older strategies. Initially we will draw upon sympathetic actions such as "fight or flight". Again if we are unsuccessful in handling stress at this point we default to the oldest evolutionary survival strategies that are rooted in parasympathetic activity such as "immobilization or dissociation".
    Prof. Dr. Stephen Porges suggests that strengthening the social nervous system helps to mediate the actions of both sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. You know that you are engaging the social nervous system when you are able to recognize when you are safe, be self-reflective, feel a warmth in your smile, and the sparkle in your eyes. Your social nervous system increases your ability to respond effectively when you feel keyed up with anxiety or shut-down with depression.

Personal avowals

  • Denying the reality of my experience – that was the most harmful. Not being able to trust anyone was the most serious effect. [...] I know I acted in ways that were despicable. But I wasn't crazy. Some people go around acting like that because they feel hopeless. Finally I found a few people along the way who have been able to feel OK about me even though I had severe problems. Good therapists were those who really validated my experience.

 

  • I have tried to communicate my ideas in a language that preserves connections, a language that is faithful both to the dispassionate, reasoned traditions of my profession and to the passionate claims of people who have been violated and outraged. I have tried to find a language that can withstand the imperatives of doublethink and allows all of us to come a little closer to facing the unspeakable.

 

Why? question

  • Survivors of atrocity of every age and every culture come to a point in their testimony where all questions are reduced to one, spoken more in bewilderment than in outrage: Why? The answer is beyond human understanding.

 

Historic role models

(↓)

Bertha Pappenheim, an early investigator of PTSD

  • The only one of the early investigators who carried the exploration of hysteria [See Studies on Hysteria (1895)] to its logical conclusion was Breuer's patient Anna O.. After Breuer (1842-1925) abandoned her, she apparently remained ill for several years. And then she recovered. The mute hysteric who had invented the "talking cure" found her voice and her sanity, in the women's liberation movement. Under a pseudonym, Paul Berthold, she translated into German the classic treatise by Mary Wollstonecraft, A Vindication of the Rights of Women, and authored a play, Women's Rights. Under her own name, Bertha Papenheim became a prominent feminist social worker, intellectual, and organizer. In the course of a long and fruitful career she directed an orphanage for girls, founded a feminist organization for Jewish women and traveled throughout Europe and the Middle East to campaign against the sexual exploitation of women and children. Her dedication, energy and commitment were legendary. In the words of a colleague, 'A volcano lived in this woman [...]. Her fight against the abuse of women and children was almost a physically felt pain for her.' At her death, the philosopher Martin Buber commemorated her: 'I not only admired her but loved her, and will love her until the day I die. There are people of spirit and there are people of passion, both less common than one might think. Rarer still are the people of spirit and passion. But rarest of all is a passionate spirit. Bertha Pappenheim was a woman with just such a spirit.
(↓)

Study on the role of dissociation

  • Further evidence for the pathogenic role of dissociation has come from a largescale clinical and community study of traumatized people conducted by a task force of the American Psychiatric Association. In this study, people who reported having dissociative symptoms were also quite likely to develop persistent somatic symptoms for which no physical cause could be found. They also frequently engaged in self-destructive attacks on their own bodies. The results of these investigations validate the century-old insight that traumatized people relive in their bodies the moments of terror that they can not describe in words. Dissociation appears to be the mechanism by which intense sensory and emotional experiences are disconnected from the social domain of language and memory, the internal mechanism by which terrorized people are silenced.

 

  • It has become clear that, as Janet (1859-1947) observed one hundred years ago [1889], dissociation lies at the heart of the traumatic stress disorders. Studies of survivors of disasters, terrorist attacks, and combat have demonstrated that people who enter a dissociative state at the time of the traumatic event are among most likely to develop long-lasting PTSD.

 

(↓)

Diagnosing post-traumatic disorder

  • [S]ome patients resist the diagnosis of a posttraumatic disorder. They may feel stigmatized by any psychiatric diagnosis or wish to deny their condition out of a sense of pride. Some people feel that acknowledging psychological harm grants a moral victory to the perpetrator, in a way that acknowledging physical harm does not.

 

(↓)

Hyperarousal – signs of PTSD

  • After a traumatic experience, the human system of self-preservation seems to go onto permanent alert, as if the danger might return at any moment. Physiological arousal continues unabated. In this state of hyperarousal, which is the first cardinal symptom of posttraumatic stress disorder, the traumatized person startles easily, reacts irritably to small provocations, and sleeps poorly. Kardiner (1891-1981) proposed that "the nucleus of the [traumatic] neurosis is physioneurosis." He believed that many of the symptoms observed in combat veterans of the First World War – startle reactions, hyperalertness, vigilance for the return of danger, nightmares, and psychosomatic complaints – could be understood as resulting from chronic arousal of the autonomic nervous system. He also interpreted the irritability and explosively aggressive behavior of traumatized men as disorganized fragments of a shattered "fight or flight" response to overwhelming danger.

 

(↓)

Individual and social denial, repression and dissociation

  • Denial, repression and dissociation operate on a social, as well as an individual level.

 

(↓)

Traumatic events resulting in helplessness / powerlessness

  • Psychological trauma is an affliction of the powerless. At the moment of trauma, the victim is rendered helpless by overwhelming force.
    ➤ When the force is that of nature, we speak of disasters.
    ➤ When the force is that of other human beings, we speak of atrocities.
    Traumatic events overwhelm the ordinary systems of care that give people a sense of control, connection, and meaning. […]
    Traumatic events are extraordinary, not because they occur rarely, but rather because they overwhelm the ordinary human adaptations to life. […] They confront human beings with the extremities of helplessness and terror, and evoke the responses of catastrophe.

 

  • In avoiding any situations reminiscent of the past trauma, or any initiative that might involve future planning and risk, traumatized people deprive themselves of those new opportunities for successful coping that might mitigate the effect of the traumatic experience. Thus, constrictive symptoms, though they may represent an attempt to defend against overwhelming emotional states, exact a high price for whatever protection they afford. They narrow and deplete the quality of life and ultimately perpetuate the effects of the traumatic event.

 

(↓)

Traumatised children

  • Many abused children cling to the hope that growing up will bring escape and freedom.
    But the personality formed in the environment of coercive control is not well adapted to adult life. The survivor is left with fundamental problems in basic trust, autonomy, and initiative. She approaches the task of early adulthood – establishing independence and intimacy – burdened by major impairments in self-care, in cognition and in memory, in identity, and in the capacity to form stable relationships.
    She is still a prisoner of her childhood; attempting to create a new life, she reencounters the trauma.

 

(↓)

Internalizing badness to preserve parental attachments

  • By developing a contaminated, stigmatized identity, the child victim takes the evil of the abuser into herself and thereby preserves her primary attachments to her parents. Because the inner sense of badness preserves a relationship, it is not readily given up even after the abuse has stopped; rather, it becomes a stable part of the child's personality structure.

 

  • [R]epeated trauma in childhood forms and deforms the personality. The child trapped in an abusive environment is faced with formidable tasks of adaptation. She must find a way to
    ➤ preserve a sense of trust in people who are untrustworthy,
    ➤ safety in a situation that is unsafe,
    ➤ control in a situation that is terrifyingly unpredictable, power in a situation of helplessness.
    Unable to care for or protect herself, she must compensate for the failures of adult care and protection with the only means at her disposal, an immature system of psychological defenses.

 

(↓)

Childhood abuse – psychiatric care

  • The mental health system is filled with survivors of prolonged, repeated childhood trauma. This is true even though most people who have been abused in childhood never come to psychiatric attention. To the extent that these people recover, they do so on their own. While only a small minority of survivors, usually those with the most severe abuse histories, eventually become psychiatric patients, many or even most psychiatric patients are survivors of childhood abuse. The data on this point are beyond contention. On careful questioning, 50-60 percent of psychiatric inpatients and 40-60 percent of outpatients report childhood histories of physical or sexual abuse or both. In one study of psychiatric emergency room patients, 70 percent had abuse histories. Thus abuse in childhood appears to be one of the main factors that lead a person to seek psychiatric treatment as an adult.

 

(↓)

Dialectic of psychological trauma

Reporting atrocities

  • The conflict between the will to deny horrible events and the will to proclaim them aloud is the central dialectic of psychological trauma. People who have survived atrocities often tell their stories in a highly emotional, contradictory, and fragmented manner that undermines their credibility and thereby serves the twin imperatives of truth-telling and secrecy. When the truth is finally recognized, survivors can begin their recovery. But far too often secrecy prevails, and the story of the traumatic event surfaces not as a verbal narrative but as a symptom.

 

  • The ordinary response to atrocities is to banish them from consciousness. Certain violations of the social compact are too terrible to utter aloud: this is the meaning of the word unspeakable.

 

  • Atrocities, however, refuse to be buried. Equally as powerful as the desire to deny atrocities is the conviction that denial does not work. Folk wisdom is filled with ghosts who refuse to rest in their graves until their stories are told. Murder will out. Remembering and telling the truth about terrible events are prerequisites both for the restoration of the social order and for the healing of individual victims.

 

(↓)

The dialectic of trauma

  • The psychological distress symptoms of traumatized people simultaneously call attention to the existence of an unspeakable secret and deflect attention from it. This is most apparent in the way traumatized people alternate between feeling numb and reliving the event. The dialectic of trauma gives rise to complicated, sometimes uncanny alterations of consciousness, which George Orwell, one of the committed truth-tellers of our century, called "doublethink," and which mental health professionals, searching for calm, precise language, call "dissociation." It results in protean, dramatic, and often bizarre symptoms of hysteria which Freud recognized a century ago as disguised communications about sexual abuse in childhood […].

 

  • The dialectic of trauma is playing itself out once again. It is worth remembering that this is not the first time in history that those who have listened closely to trauma survivors have been subject to challenge. Nor will it be the last. In the past few years, many clinicians have had to learn to deal with the same tactics of harassment and intimidation that grassroots advocates for women, children and other oppressed groups have long endured. We, the bystanders, have had to look within ourselves to find some small portion of the courage that victims of violence must muster every day.

 

(↓)

The legal system protecting alpha men.

  • The legal system is designed to protect men from the superior power of the state but not to protect women or children from the superior power of men. It therefore provides strong guarantees for the rights of the accused but essentially no guarantees for the rights of the victim. If one set out by design to devise a system for provoking intrusive posttraumatic symptoms, one could not do better than a court of law.

 

(↓)

Escaping accountability for crimes

  • In order to escape accountability for his crimes,
    ➤ the perpetrator does everything in his power to promote forgetting.
       Secrecy and silence are the perpetrator's first line of defense.
    If secrecy fails, the perpetrator attacks the credibility of his victim.
    ➤ If he cannot silence her absolutely, he tries to make sure no one listens.
       To this end, he marshals an impressive array of arguments, from the most blatant denial to the most
       sophisticated and elegant rationalization.

 

  • After every atrocity one can expect to hear the same predictable apologies:
    ➤ it never happened;
    ➤ the victim lies;
    ➤ the victim exaggerates;
    ➤ the victim brought it upon herself;
    ➤ and in any case it is time to forget the past and move on.
    The more powerful the perpetrator, the greater is his prerogative to name and define reality, and the more completely his arguments prevail.

 

  • And public disclosure is something that perpetrators are determined to prevent. As in the case of more overtly political crimes, perpetrators will fight tenaciously to ensure that their abuses remain unseen, unacknowledged, and consigned to oblivion.

Survivor's exacting test of trustworthiness

  • Over time as most people fail the survivor's exacting test of trustworthiness, she tends to withdraw from relationships. The isolation of the survivor thus persists even after she is free.

 

(↓)

Loss of trust

  • When trust is lost, traumatized people feel that they belong more to the dead than to the living.

 

(↓)

Battering relationship

  • The guarantee of safety in a battering relationship can never be based upon a promise from the perpetrator, no matter how heartfelt. Rather, it must be based upon the self-protective capability of the victim. Until the victim has developed a detailed and realistic contingency plan and has demonstrated her ability to carry it out, she remains in danger of repeated abuse.

 

  • In order to gain their freedom, survivors may have to give up almost everything else.
    ➤ Battered women may lose their homes, their friends, and their livelihood.
    ➤ Survivors of childhood abuse may lose their families.
    ➤ Political refugees may lose their homes and their homeland.
    Rarely are the dimensions of this sacrifice fully recognized.

 

  • Though both partners may wish for reconciliation, their unspoken goals are often sharply in conflict. The abuser usually wishes to reestablish his pattern of coercive control, while the victim wishes to resist it.

 

(↓)

Combat and rape in adolescence

  • Combat and rape, the public and private forms of organized social violence, are primarily experiences of adolescent and early adult life. The United States Army enlists young men at seventeen; the average age of the Vietnam combat soldier was nineteen. In many other countries boys are conscripted for military service while barely in their teens. Similarly, the period of highest risk for rape is in late adolescence. Half of all victims are aged twenty or younger at the time they are raped; three-quarters are between the ages of thirteen and twenty-six. The period of greatest psychological vulnerability is also in reality the period of greatest traumatic exposure, for both young men and young women. Rape and combat might thus be considered complementary social rites of initiation into the coercive violence at the foundation of adult society. They are the paradigmatic forms of trauma for women and men.

 

(↓)

Ties between the trauma victim and the community

  • Traumatic events destroy the sustaining bonds between individual and community. Those who have survived learn that their sense of self, of worth, of humanity, depends upon a feeling of connection with others. The solidarity of a group provides the strongest protection against terror and despair, and the strongest antidote to traumatic experience.
    ➤ Trauma isolates; the group re-creates a sense of belonging.
    ➤ Trauma shames and stigmatizes; the group bears witness and affirms.
    ➤Trauma degrades the victim; the group exalts her.
    ➤ Trauma dehumanizes the victim; the group restores her humanity.
    Repeatedly in the testimony of survivors there comes a moment when a sense of connection is restored by another person’s unaffected display of generosity. Something in herself that the victim believes to be irretrievably destroyed – faith, decency, courage – is reawakened by an example of common altruism. Mirrored in the actions of others, the survivor recognizes and reclaims a lost part of herself. At that moment, the survivor begins to rejoin the human commonality […].

 

(↓)

Three steps of recovery

  • Recovery unfolds in three stages.
    1. The central task of the first stage is the establishment of safety.
    2. The central task of the second stage is remembrance and mourning.
    3. The central focus of the third stage is reconnection with ordinary life.

 

  1. First, the physiological symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder have been brought within manageable limits.
  2. Second, the person is able to bear the feelings associated with traumatic memories.
  3. Third, the person has authority over her memories; she can elect both to remember the trauma and to put memory aside.
  4. Fourth, the memory of the traumatic event is a coherent narrative, linked with feeling.
  5. Fifth, the person's damaged self-esteem has been restored.
  6. Sixth, the person's important relationships have been reestablished.
  7. Seventh and finally, the person has reconstructed a coherent system of meaning and belief that encompasses the story of trauma.

 

  • The first principle of recovery is empowerment of the survivor.
    She must be the author and arbiter of her own recovery.
    Others may offer advice, support, assistance, affection, and care, but not cure.

 

  • Many benevolent and well-intentioned attempts to assist the survivor flounder because this basic principle of empowerment is not observed. No intervention that takes power away from the survivor can possibly foster her recovery, no matter how much it appears to be in her immediate best interest.

 

  • Recovery can take place only within then context of relationships; it cannot occur in isolation. In her renewed connection with other people, the survivor re-creates the psychological facilities that were damaged or deformed by the traumatic experience. These faculties include the basic operations of trust, autonomy, initiative, competence, identity, and intimacy.

 

(↓)

Steps to heal profoundly disrupted childhood relationships

  • In this climate of profoundly disrupted relationships the child faces a formidable developmental task.
    • She must find a way to form primary attachments to caretakers who are either dangerous or, from her perspective, negligent.
    • She must find a way to develop a sense of basic trust and safety with caretakers who are untrustworthy and unsafe.
    • She must develop a sense of self in relation to others who are helpless, uncaring or cruel.
    • She must develop a capacity for bodily self-regulation in an environinent in which her body is at the disposal of others' needs as well as a capacity for self-soothing in an environment without solace.
    • She must develop the capacity for initiative in an environment which demands that she bring her will into complete conformity with that of her abuser.
And ultimately,
  • she must develop a capacity for intimacy out of an environment where all intimate relationships are corrupt, and an identity out of an environment which defines her as a whore and a slave.

 

  • Survivors feel unsafe in their bodies.
    Their emotions and their thinking feel out of control.
    They also feel unsafe in relation to other people.

 

(↓)

Power of relationship of witnessing – committed listening

  • Underlying the attack on psychotherapy, I believe, is a recognition of the potential power of any relationship of witnessing. The consulting room is a privileged space dedicated to memory. Within that space, survivors gain the freedom to know and tell their stories. Even the most private and confidential disclosure of past abuses increases the likelihood of eventual public disclosure.

 

(↓)

Attacks – implicit tribute to the power of the healing relationship

  • Some attacks have been downright silly; many have been quite ugly. Though frightening, these attacks are an implicit tribute to the power of the healing relationship. They remind us that creating a protected space where survivors can speak their truth is an act of liberation. They remind us that bearing witness, even within the confines of that sanctuary, is an act of solidarity. They remind us also that moral neutrality in the conflict between victim and perpetrator is not an option. Like all other bystanders, therapists are sometimes forced to take sides. Those who stand with the victim will inevitably have to face the perpetrator's unmasked fury. For many of us, there can be no greater honor. S. 246-247, February 1997

 

(↓)

Committed listening and resolution – sense of justice

  • Working with victimized people requires a committed moral stance.
    ➤ The therapist is called upon to bear witness to a crime.
    ➤ She must affirm a position of solidarity with the victim.
    This does not mean a simplistic notion that the victim can do no wrong; rather, it involves
    ➤ an understanding of the fundamental injustice of the traumatic experience and the need for a resolution that restores some sense of justice.

 

(↓)

Trauma therapy

  • Admitting the need for help may also compound the survivor's sense of defeat. The therapists Inger Agger and Soren Jensen, who work with political refugees, describe the case of K, a torture survivor with severe posttraumatic symptoms who adamantly insisted that he had no psychological problems: "K...did not understand why he was to talk with a therapist. His problems were medical: the reason why he did not sleep at night was due to the pain in his legs and feet. He was asked by the therapist...about his political background, and K told him that he was a Marxist and that he had read about Freud and he did not believe in any of that stuff: how could his pain go away by talking to a therapist?

 

(↓)

Traumatized in captivity – Stockholm syndrome

  • In situations of captivity the perpetrator becomes the most powerful person in the life of the victim, and the psychology of the victim is shaped by the actions and beliefs of the perpetrator.

 

  • Most people have no knowledge or understanding of the psychological changes of captivity.
    Social judgment of chronically traumatized people therefore tends to be extremely harsh.

 

(↓)

Inability of trauma survivors to say NO to abusers

  • Many survivors have such profound deficiencies in self-protection that they can barely imagine themselves in a position of agency or choice. The idea of saying no to the emotional demands of a parent, spouse, lover or authority figure may be practically inconceivable. Thus, it is not uncommon to find adult survivors who continue to minister to the needs of those who once abused them and who continue to permit major intrusions without boundaries or limits. Adult survivors may nurse their abusers in illness, defend them in adversity, and even, in extreme cases, continue to submit to their sexual demands.

 

(↓)

Risking credibility

  • Those who attempt to describe the atrocities that they have witnessed also risk their own credibility.

 

  • To speak publicly about one's knowledge of atrocities is to invite the stigma that attaches to victims.

 

(↓)

Bystanders will take sides.

  • It is morally impossible to remain neutral in this conflict.
    The bystander is forced to take sides.

 

(↓)

Bystanders caught in the conflict between victim and perpetrator

  • When traumatic events are of human design, those who bear witness are caught in the conflict between victim and perpetrator.
    It is very tempting to take the side of the perpetrator.
    All the perpetrator asks is that the bystander do nothing.
    He [perpetrator/bystander] appeals to the universal desire to see, hear and speak no evil.
    The victim, on the contrary, asks the bystander to share the burden of pain.
    The victim demands action, engagement and remembering.

 

(↓)

Social context

  • To hold traumatic reality in consciousness requires a social context that affirms and protects the victim and that joins the victim and witness in a common alliance. For the individual victim, this social context is created by relationships with friends, lovers, and family. For the larger society, the social context is created by political movements that give voice to the disempowered.

 

(↓)

Risks of therapeutic groups of survivors

  • While in principle groups for survivors are a good idea, in practice it soon becomes apparent that to organize a successful group is no simple matter. Groups that start out with hope and promise can dissolve acrimoniously, causing pain and disappointment to all involved. The destructive potential of groups is equal to their therapeutic promise. The role of the group leader carries with it a risk of the irresponsible exercise of authority.
Conflicts that erupt among group members can all too easily re-create the dynamics of the traumatic event, with group members assuming the roles of perpetrator, accomplice, bystander, victim, and rescuer. Such conflicts can be hurtful to individual participants and can lead to the group's demise. In order to be successful, a group must have a clear and focused understanding of its therapeutic task and a structure that protects all participants adequately against the dangers of traumatic reenactment. Though groups may vary widely in composition and structure, these basic conditions must be fulfilled without exception.
Commonality with other people carries with it all the meanings of the word common. It means belonging to a society, having a public role, being part of that which is universal. It means having a feeling of familiarity, of being known, of communion. It means taking part in the customary, the commonplace, the ordinary, and the everyday. It also carries with it a feeling of smallness, or insignificance, a sense that one's own troubles are 'as a drop of rain in the sea.' The survivor who has achieved commonality with others can rest from her labors. Her recovery is accomplished; all that remains before her is her life.

 

(↓)

Encoded memories of trauma – backflashes

  • The traumatic moment becomes encoded in an abnormal form of memory, which breaks spontaneously into consciouness, both as flashbacks during waking states and as traumatic nightmares during sleep. Small, seemingly insignificant reminders can also evoke these memories, which often return with all the vividness and emotional force of the original event. Thus, even normally safe environments may come to feel dangerous, for the survivor can never be assured that she will not encounter some reminder of the trauma.

 

(↓)

Reconstructing the trauma narrative – dealing with memories

  • For survivors of prolonged, repeated trauma, it is not practical to approach each memory as a separate entity. There are simply too many incidents, and often similar memories have blurred together. Usually, however, a few distinct and particularly meaningful incidents stand out. Reconstruction of the trauma narrative is often based heavily upon these paradigmatic incidents, with the understanding that one episode stands for many.

Healing individual trauma and transforming culture and society – Peter Levine

Peter A. Levine, Ph.D. (*1942) is a US American therapist who specialized in the treatment and understanding
of chronic stress, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or tonic immobility. In studying how wild animals
recovered from trauma, he developed the trauma therapy Somatic Experiencing.

1.Creating an environment of relative safety (social engagement system)
2.Supporting initial exploration – touching into the client's traumatic sensations
3.Pendulation (experiencing painful body sensations and contracting) – the rhythm of contraction and extraction
4.Titration – touching into the smallest drop of survival based arousal
5.Providing corrective experiences
6.Uncoupling the fear from immobility – contains a lot of activation arousal so need to help contain the sensation of arousal to help the client move back into balance, back into social engagement (seeking a state of equilibrium)
7.Helping to discharge and regulate the high arousal states
8.Engaging in self-regulation to restore dynamic equilibrium and relaxed alertness
9.Reorienting into the here and now

Four stages of wrestling with inner demons – Milarepa

One evening Milarepa returned to his cave after gathering firewood, only to find it filled with demons. They were cooking his food, reading his books, sleeping in his bed. They had taken over the joint. He knew about nonduality of self and other, but he still didn't quite know how to get these guys out of his cave. Even though he had the sense that they were just a projection of his own mind – all the unwanted parts of himself – he didn't know how to get rid of them.

 

Four stages of dealing with one's inner demons
༺༻            Action             Brain/emotion·level
1.So first he taught them the dharma. He sat on this seat that was higher than they were and said things to them about how 'we are all one.'   Cognitive   
2.He talked about compassion and shunyata and how poison is medicine.
Nothing happened. The demons were still there.
   Behavioral   
3.Then he lost his patience and got angry and ran at them. They just laughed at him.   Affective   
4.Finally, he gave up and just sat down on the floor, saying,
"I'm not going away and it looks like you're not either, so let's just live here together."
Integrative – 1st step

 

At that point, all of them left except one. Milarepa said,

"Oh, this one is particularly vicious."

(We all know that one. Sometimes we have lots of them like that. Sometimes we feel that's all we've got.) He didn't know what to do, so he surrendered himself even further. He walked over and put himself right into the mouth of the demon and said,

"Just eat me up if you want to."

Then that demon left, too.

Extreme and traumatic events can change a person and affect their children and grandchildren.

Behaviors caused by traumatic experiences in early life are reversible.

5-12% (10%) of Australian military personnel, police, ambulance personnel, firefighters and other rescue workers, have experienced PTSD.
40%-55% of sex workers, women fleeing domestic violence, survivors of childhood abuse and Indigenous Australians are affected by PTSD.

1. Your autonomic state is the filter through which you experience the world.
2. Environmental cues can magically transform your physiology – how people perceive you.
3. This automatic, but you can control it if you know how.
4. Trauma is physiological, not just psychological.
5. Feeling safe is necessary for living a good life and bonding with others.
6. Bonding with others is necessary for good health.
7. When people don't feel safe, they don't think critically (ask any politician!).
8. The simplest way to make people like you (including dogs and children!): Use your facial muscles. and speak with prosody.

"We need to call out predators for what they are, sick in the diseased sense of the word. Predators have fallen to a psychospiritual disease [Wetiko] and addiction with devastating effects to all of whom it touches including the perpetrator.

"When I was abused as a child the main element that stayed with me for so many years is that I was made to feel that I was evil. This is an inherent part of any kind of abuse that the victim is being turned into the perpetrator by the perpetrator as a neccessary means to justify the act.
I was vilified and called terrible names. And of course I believed all of that. More than the physical violence, there was the act of transferring some stigmatized, tabooed sense of themselves, something they could not live with. They made me feel that I was really dirty, that I was really worthless.
I was made the container, really serving as a mother, I believe, of very disturbed adults."  Minute 15:04
