Treatment of Trauma through Integrational Dissociation and Distortion

Trauma has been one of the oldest and most difficult sufferings of humans. Even though the source of trauma has passed, there are long-lasting effects that generations have to deal with. In this research, we explore and validate a treatment method for the trauma that involves the usage of dissociation and distortion in the form of the much-studied V/AKD technique. We discuss the impact of trauma, organisation of traumatic memories, and the V/AKD technique based on the theories of Richard Bandler, John Grinder, and Steve Andreas. 216 participants were tested on the Impacts of Events Scale (R) and further, 50 participants with a mean score of more than 8, were selected to test the intervention technique which entailed a free-form interview. The results produced have potential usage for additional experimental studies of such intervention procedures and define effective as well as swift treatment methods for pertinent suffering like that of trauma.

Anger: Examining Anger Variations and their Effects

Anger is one of the simplest and primary emotions felt by human beings but this emotion can single-handedly give rise to various negative emotions like frustration, aggression, irritation, sadness, grief and pain. Anger, being the root cause of all these negative emotions, makes a very interesting topic to study. Here, we have tried to look into anger and its variations that can be expressed in the form of several emotions like mild irritation, annoyance, reduced tolerance level, frustration, full-blown tantrum etc. One hundred and eighty-two (N=182) individuals were studied from the Indian population belonging to different religions and sects. This data was collected via descriptive google forms. The Novaco Anger Scale (NAS) was used as the questionnaire. From this sample, we concluded that majority of the responders ranked towards the lower half of the anger scale regardless of age, sex and religion they belonged to.

Cognitive Psychology & Neuro-Linguistic Psychology ( NLP)

This research is based on the idea that a link exists between memories and phobias, fears and traumas and mainly they can be reduced in one’s life by manipulating negative memories, the encoding process, and by using NLP as therapy and its techniques like the Swish Technique or the Visual-Kinesthetic Dissociation Technique to overcome and remove those very phobias, traumas and fears. Since memory and cognition form an important part of the individual’s life because of the functions it performs the focus of this article mainly lies surrounding this topic and how NLP can prove to be useful. The encoding process in the memory takes place through different representational systems that are a part of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). Since NLP lists visual, auditory, kinesthetic, olfactory and gustatory as a part of this system, an attempt is made to explain how through these systems and their submodalities (finer distinctions of the representational system) memories are formed and how emotions play a role in determining the retrieval of a particular memory and how that, in turn, leads to the formation of phobias, irrational fears and traumas like the fear of heights, water, etc or a traumatic event like the death of a loved one due to a disease or accident and to achieve all of this secondary researches, data analyses and information tools were used.

Quantum Neuro – Synchronicity

Quantum Neuro-Synchronicity explores the brain activities of an individual when they are completely immersed into a previously inexperienced and unfamiliar activity. Although there have been researches on the synchronicity between dyads, there is a clear gap in research on the benefits of the sync on the right and left sides of the brain on an individual. Its scope extends to not only engaging and developing our neurology but also as a means to escape all the weights that constantly pull people back. It is a momentary relief, a transitory phase, and a feeling of bliss that one can experience by simply learning something new. Carl Jung created the term “synchronicity” to explain a relationship between two events that could not be explained by cause and effect.

Neuro-Immuno Psychology

Psychoneuroimmunology, an evolving field, is made of three parts. Thoughts (psycho-) control the brain (neuro-) which, in turn, influences the immune system (immunology). In this article, through demonstrations, research evidence, illustrations, and live examples, we will understand how our perception and beliefs of our environment actualize our body’s ability to heal itself.
