Archive for the ‘daily writings and musings of the psychologist’ Category

We reproduce below the interview of our Ramneek Kapoor Psychologist and Family Therapist once again for the benefit of our readers and clients.

1 .What is ‘stress’

“I would refer to stress as “the mental, psychological, intellectual, emotional and physical unease to the personal situation and the expectation rose either by the self or by others to face/handle the situation “.

  1. Are all kinds of stress bad? How do we identify between good and bad stress?

“All kinds of stress is not bad, only the distress caused is bad. Eustress is a good stress that gives a high and stimulates the adrenaline. When you feel good about certain situation and event and feel you are able to handle it, you look forward to such a situational stress which results into a moral boost and good emotional physical feeling”.

  1. Do you think people are aware what stress does to their mind, body and soul? Do you think that once they realise how negative stress has adverse effects on them, they will be in a better position to manage it?

“Only a limited few numbers of people could be aware of the negative effects of the stress on their physical, mental, social, spiritual and emotional well being. Mere realisation that the stress is bad will not be enough. We need to also educate and inculcate in them the stress relieving self empowering meditation exercise routine on day to day basis. Preksha Meditation (perceptive meditation on the psychic centres) under the guidance of trained teacher will go a long way in relieving stress.

  1. In the world we are living in today, how important is it to spread awareness about stress? Are there any statistics that reveal how serious the problem of stress is one’s life?

“The very fact that more than 50 percent people suffer from the depression, anxiety and stress sometimes or the other in their life with no trained professional help to cope with this reflects the pitiable position of the awareness amongst common people. In fact no official statistics from any governmental source are available on the subject nor has any NGO worked on the subject authentically”.

  1. How do you think our previous generations managed stress better than today? Even with the state of the art technology and advance in medical sciences, why have we as humans not been able to cope/ deal with stress?

“It is a fashion to always refer to the better life of the previous generation. The fact is that the technological advancement has also brought with it the person related emotional, psychological and physical maladies in addition to making life easier. The state of art tech development has brought about personal isolation, in the midst of many. The person today is cut off and alienated from the self. He or she is always lost into an uncalled for competition with the others on the social media and into the realms of the imaginary virtual world.

  1. Do you think people today are ignorant about stress? Ignorance is bliss, but is this kind of bliss worth it?

“No they are not ignorant. They prefer living in the comfort of uncomfortable stress. The rat race takes its toll and the victims enjoy the bites of killing stress and anxiety and many other mental ailments. Eventually the person ends up with either cardiac problems or the chronic depression and anxiety will take toll on such persons “.

  1. Are there some observable and prominent symptoms a stressed individual will experience? Such as physical, mental, emotional, physiological etc.?

“Yes ;the breathing discomfort , sleeplessness , insomnia, loss of memory, eating disorder either binge eating or not getting hungry, social anxiety, irritation , unmanaged anger, repeated headache, psychosomatic pains , and weight gain/ weight loss are some of the prominent observable symptoms”.

  1. Who are the most stressed people according to you? What could be the causes for them being the most stressed?

“Adolescents, working women, housewives, company executives and even professionals with deadlines of times to meet are always under stress. But the large share of the stress cake goes to adolescents in the modern times. With the race to always look outwards and keep pace with the demands of peer aping the adolescents find it difficult to cope with the stress. This generation is neither amongst the younger generation nor are they amongst the adults. The social media, the rigid demands on their performances in academics and career aspirations’ of the parents for them, are some of the major reasons for this generation being most stressed

  1. What according to you triggers ‘stress? Do you think by being aware of the triggers we can be in a better position to manage stress?

Triggers of stress can be any event or situation that threatens the mental and physical equilibrium (homeostasis) of the body . The events can be either external or internal

. External can be the political, social, economic, competitive, family, academic, or work atmosphere. While internal triggers will relates to irresponsible behaviour, uncalled for self expectations, negative attitude towards life in general, and looking for perfectionism in self or others.

  1. What can be some of the long-term effects of stress? How does stress affect a person physically, mentally and emotionally?

The long term effects of chronic stress can be

  • Chronic sadness and depression. (2.) Chronic mental and physical fatigue. (3.) Chronic stress related illness (consistent headache, stomach ache, bowel problems, social anxiety) and other psycho somatic physical illness. (4) Isolating self, withdrawal, self destructive nihilistic thoughts .

Physical problems of the stress can be , sleep disorders, back, shoulder or neck pain, migraines , headaches, acidity, upset bowels, constipation, weight gain or loss, hair loss, loss of libido.

Emotionally the person can become nervous, edgy, depressed, moody, phobic, and not be able to focus and eventually suffering from Nervous breakdown.

  1. Please mention 5 useful tips for fighting/ managing stress? How can one follow these in his/her daily schedule and busy day?
    1. Accept life as it comes.
    2. Accept your self.
    3. Identify “ME” and try to become “ME” rather than becoming him, her ,they or she.
    4. Accept that perfectionism is a myth and utopia.
    5. Follow a healthy diet plan, an exercise and meditation routine to keep your heart health and positive.
  1. According to you, how can one prevent stress in everyday life? How do we know that the levels of stress have crossed the healthy limits? Until when can a person manage it on his/ her own?

“Stress is a natural occurrence but taking on too much can be avoided . Relax whenever you feel mentally, physically or emotionally exhausted before your stresses break you down”.

  1. Stress does not tend to only affect one person; its effects tend to spill over to the people around them. How do you think that we as a friend/ family member help a person dealing with stress?

“Stress is a personal problem but its manifestation can be felt and definitely seen in the family, friends and other areas of one’s life. The friends and family too should know that the life has to be lived in positive moments and as such the negativity should be eliminated from the life completely.

  1. What message would you like to give to our readers this Stress Awareness Month?

“Live life in positive emotions, the negatives are not meant for the living “.

Meena had left her husband’s house a week ago and she didn’t want to go back.The little fight that they had , had been a routine .She felt she had been a little too hard on her husband. She wanted to atone for these bickerings by punishing herself.She wanted to stay away from her home and husband, always believing this would be her punishment .

Ravi always wanted to have some freedom and space in his busy life. He would travel to the hills once every three months. But he felt guilty of cheating on his wife,every time he did that .He did not know how to compensate his wife for this and the guilt always knawed upon his mind. He brought her number of gifts, believing that way he was paying for his neglect of her . Both the situations above indicate that,

We often take it too hard on ourselves and become compassion less for our own mind ,soul and body.We indulge into self denial ,self effacement and /or believe in self punishment .But how would such a step ever become a compensation to the other partner .Every harmful act that you think of doing to yourself either and or think that self punishment could be an act of compensation to the other partner would in fact be a compassionless act for both.

“You need to be more compassionate to yourself first before you think of developing the same for others. When you have learned compassion for yourself, compassion for others is automatic.”

What is Mindful Perceptive Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT)?

Compassion-focused therapy (CFT) aims to bring about a better mental health and emotional well-being by training and enabling people to develop a compassionate attitude toward themselves and other people in their lives .This helps the person get a better understanding of self and that of others’ intention, motivation and activities.

What does Mindful Perceptive CFT Involve ?

The therapeutic technique of CFT include five A exercises spelt out as Acceptance, Appreciation, Adjustment, Accomodation, Adoption or Adaptation.These extensive exercises, or activities emphasising the mental perception buildup of solid relationship, an individual can enjoy are undertaken during the Therapy on regular basis.

These exercises may include making a list of accepting person or things first at the face values irrespective of the likes or dislikes,Appreciation comes by taking time to savour the moment when something enjoyable is noticed, and other positive rewarding behaviours.Similarly mind then is trained to understand utilise and appreciate the concepts of other four A’s.

Mindful Perceptive Meditation is made use of in CFT is to develop a better sensory perceptive attention to the current moment in a manner that is free from any bias or prejudice. CFT makes use of Compassion-focused imagery exercises, or the use of guided memories to stimulate an appreciation of the environment .The objective of the guided imagery is the production and perception of a relational image that stimulates the calming system of the mind.

This can be achieved by perceptually imaging someone showing kindness and compassion to you and then mentally experience how that feels, with the intention that you learn how to show yourself kindness and compassion.

Disorders treated with Mindful Perceptive CFT

Mindful Perceptive CFT can be helpful to people who find it challenging to understand, feel, or express compassion in their social interaction and relationships .

Mindful Perceptive CFT can help to explore reasons ,events and past experiences that have brought about such a difficulty in developing compassion. Mindful Perceptive CFT explores methods of positive change.

The foundations of a good harmonious relationship in families have never ever been shaken so much as is being witnessed over last few months during the reign of Covid19 pandemic .I am obviously not referring to the spread of the virus .The spread of discontent,of apprehension and of unknown has been hitting the families much more in addition to of course the threat to the physical health on account of no activity,no source to let out the energy.

There have been widespread incidents of frayed tempers ,stomping of feet,exchange of good words or bad words , accusations and shouting combats amongst the members of families stuck up on account of the lockdowns and now on account of the fear that the devil Covid-19 can strike any one any time as the lockdown is opening up.We are currently into the third stage of opening up of the lockdown.

The curtailment of freedom has come with a bigger loss of business,employment and of course the apprehensions about losing assets bought on EMIs .You gain a respectability in the society you come from when you are gainfully employed and the same society looks down upon you when you end up losing your business ,job or the means of earning .That’s a very ironical situation though it’s true.

It’s not that there have not been instances of spread of disease in or the instances of smaller fights within the family,but the mental scars as given by Covid-19 will take a long long time to heal as the experts in mental health feel.

Nothing else can be as fatal for the marital relationship as your anger. An uncontrolled anger is like a slow poison to the strong threads of relations between husband and wife .The uncontrolled anger virtually eats into the very roots of love,trust and respectability of both the partners .

I have observed while counseling estranged or opposing spouses that couples would often express their anger and resentment towards each other and after a while they tend to cool down when educated about their misplacement of their emotions or expectations from each other.

However heavens may help in situations where one of the spouses happen to have an uncontrolable anger . Such expression of constant complaints and anger often leads to physical abuse ,emotional accusations against each other and ultimate separation.

Anger is not so bad if used momentarily and allowed to subside and defused once it has been expressed. The message that the angry person has been upset over certain issues or acts of either spouse can be conveyed and thereafter both would do better to come to the levels of finding ways to negotiate peace and make amends .

There comes a stage when the partners need to involve a professional family therapist who can help them look at their differences or different perceptions in new light to sort out the disputes .Such intervention is arranged with a view to evolve newer and better emotional understanding amongst the couple ,even though the previous hurt still remains at the background. But the seething anger has been overcome as the partners give each other opportunities to grow their new closeness and understanding.

But many a times the harmed partner particularly wife finds it difficult to let go of the past and forgive her husband. Her anger seethes like a wild fire that knows no direction ,hovering over the relationship and destroying everything that comes in its path .Such situation finds no retrieval and the couple sooner or later ends up parting ways through legal separation,or finding it difficult to stay together peacefully.

A partner with such an uncontrolled anger often brings to the fore the mistakes of the other partner,by shaming him or her at every available opportunities,refuses to listen to any explanation by the partner and believes no compromise can be big enough to solve the problems which have arisen in their relationship.

An understanding partner can help coverup many shortcomings ,mistakes and at times blunders of the other partner unless it happens to be a complete erosion of trust and faith.But in the event of such a situation too,the partners need to sit together by letting the anger go and understand how to proceed with their relationship further or even give it a break by inflicting the minimum damage to the family and partners themselves.

It is important that both husband and wife should pay attention to their anger control and if they find that their relationship is getting affected by such frequent bursts of anger. They should consult a counseling psychologist and family therapist .A trained professional counselor and family therapist would help them with relevant anger management therapies including perceptive breathing exercises .

Family therapist during meeting with unhappy, married couple

While there are enough advisors in every social circle to guide and help the estranged or fighting couples but such unprofessional approach unknowingly out of their ignorance can ignite more anger or mistrust towards each other often leading to frequent accusations. As far as possible couples should avoid such agony aunts for their own betterment .Repeated complaints, frequent bickerings and trying to put down the partner or staging a show down for your partner just because you are angry with him or her can on the contrary take the love out of relations,resulting into the damaged partner finding solace elsewhere .No partner in the right mind who values relationship would like to be in such an embarrassing situation .Anytime you feel angry with or at your partner ,give yourself sometime to think over if the confrontation can be through anger or matters can also be discussed without losing control and being firm in your tone and body language.

,If you have such  uncontrolled anger /domestic violence  situation You should come to us at Family Therapy India and we will help you resolve all issues of your marriage in more amicable manner .Find us @ http://www.mansikpramarsh.com

I am lost. I am annoyed.I am sad and definitely upset to the news of Sushant Singh Rajput hanging himself ….Yes I donot use the word suicide because I look at it as an act of hanging oneself by the noose as a defiance to life that lives within us .

Till death do us apart is a term often used by the lovers,in their wedding woes and the priests seal the pact of matrimony based on this statement. But why don’t we say till life lives within us .It is so because no one is sure how long the life lives within us .It is only when the life stops living within us that we think of inviting death by self annihilation.

We are however certain that death will definitely do us apart one day or the other and hence we never question the certainty .What is already there is visible to the naked eye and does not cause much disturbance to the mind.

Life lives within us when we feel ,sense smell and savour it .Life lives within us when we live in our mind body and soul .Life lives within us when we get to do the things that we enjoy. Some live through their life till that day and when this doesn’t happen they come to the conclusion that life within them has already come to an end.To such a mind outer manifestations of life do not interest them . Even then the multitudes wait for their life to somehow live till it finds it’s ultimate cessation through death . Some donot want to wait for that death day.On the contrary they take a whimsical decision to make and chose their own death day. Such are the people who walk out with a choice of their own making mockery of the life .To them death becomes dearer than the life.

And is that why men commit themselves to a different world…hoping to find a life that lives within them.

panic attackThe sound of ambulance and police vans’ siren outside hurt .She just looked out of the window and the caravan of many vehicles running at a high speed just down below on the road, triggered an instant panic in her mind .She felt her heart pounding like a hammer in her chest. Her head was getting lighter. She couldn’t stand and sat on the bed immediately to prevent her falling. She could hardly breathe and felt her breathes getting shorter and shorter. The acute pain in her legs shot through like needles .She felt she would faint .She was sweating profusely. She wanted to call her husband but couldn’t raise her voice as she felt her throat choked.

panicSuch a situation can take place with anyone. You can get a surge of fear racing through your mind and panic attack triggers .This may last for five to ten minutes, but the panic and the bodily reaction, together can leave you mentally and physically paralyzed temporarily. You then want to avoid such situation at any cost in future as you don’t want to experience the same panic attack again.

A few steps as we enlist them below can help cope up with such a panic situation.

  1. Since you have experienced the trigger once you will be able to identify the initial symptoms. If ever such a situation arises again. You need to tell yourself that,” it is only my anxiety building up “, and tell yourself, “I don’t have to lose my control. I am fine “.girl-praying-hands-pray-41192
  2. During such a situation, talking to your own self and listening to your own voice can help .Speak to yourself in the affirmative. Acknowledge that it is only a thought and that the thought will pass away. Just say,” I am a positive person and I don’t have to think negative. I am good and I am a healthy person”.
  3. girl-praying-hands-eyelashes-41942Deep breathing exercises during this can help. Put your right hand on your heart and left hand spread just below the belly button on your stomach .Start inhaling deeply and exhaling as much longer. Just focus on your breathing and inhale deep and exhale deep for three to five minutes. Keep your mind focused on the rise and fall of chest and stomach by breathing exercises and soon your mind will move away from the panic and you will feel better.
  4. Focus in the present and focus on your situation. Do not try to hide it. Do not try to wish it away. Acknowledge, it is happening to you and that you are fighting it out. The room is yours and the person is you only. Such a presence of mind can be brought about by identifying your favorite sitting spot, your television, your mobile, and your leftover coffee Cup in the room. Think of the aroma of coffee you just had. Or the good fragrance of your favorite flowers .Such feel of familiar environment will help tell you, “I am fine and all is good with me “.
  5. Such panic attack usually triggers in case you haven’t had food or you are thirsty or even when you haven’t had a normal sleep .Just run over your mind the questions, 1. Am I tired, 2. Am I hungry 3? Do I need to drink water 4.what’s making me restless .You will soon get the answer and then take necessary remedial steps.
  6. relaxing poseProgressive Muscles Relaxation Exercise will help alleviate the bodily discomfort and muscle spasms. Begin from the toes of your feet , relax each muscle ,travel upward gradually ,relax calf muscles, the knee muscles, thigh muscles, hips and then focus on stomach ,chest shoulders ,neck ,forehead and head muscles. Spend 15 to 30 seconds on each muscle part and once you have finished, keep feeling relaxed all through the physique.
  7. exercising 2Do not give up on your daily quota of physical exercise. Manage your workout schedule regularly, be it yoga, spot jogging, walking all over the home or exercising with your partner, helping each other with calisthenics.
  8. Living indoor for long may necessitate popping up a few vitamins to build up the immune system. Vitamin C, Vitamin D or B12, can be added to your daily dose after talking to your physician.
  9. Do remember to say your grace to the lord almighty for keeping us alive and healthy. Do pray for the sick and dying and ask God to stop the annihilation of the humans.exercising
  10. Let’s together thank all our heroes e.g. the doctors, nurses, health workers and paramedics, the municipal staff cleaning and sanitizing colonies, roads and buildings for our safety.

fam din

Anita declined invitations to her friend’s home , as she knew she would not be able to control her son from wandering about in her friends’ place nor could he be left alone home unattended .Her son Deepak has been diagnosed with ADHD. She preferred staying back home rather than getting embarrassed by being told ,”your son is not in your control .You need to be more strict with him”.Any amount of explanation to people was of no use .They don’t understand,what it is and how it feels to become a mother to an ADHD child.She can not control him at home too.The child is always edgy ,restless and agitated for constantly being followed by her all around,and being told,don’t touch this,leave that alone or sit still,don’t move.

From the minute I entered the office to listen to the school’s complaints about my 9 years old son Gautam I had been anticipating this time they would ask me find another school for him .I had come prepared to apologise and request them to allow me more time to discipline Gautam .I wanted to promise my son would behave henceforth.

I noticed Gautam fidgeting restlessly in his seat. He picked up the paper weight from the table and started rolling it like a roller pin on the table glass . I took away the weight and told Gautam to sit quietly.
But as soon as I began my greetings to the teachers in the room ,my son got up from his seat and moved towards the side of the Principal’s chair.
I felt quite awkward and ashamed of myself. I lost it , and shouted at my son,”get back to your seat and sit still “.

The principal smiled at me and in a very gentle tone told me,”do not pay attention to the child.He will soon be fine”.In a very sweet hush she told Gautam,” Mr you want to sit here or next to your mom.If you sit here I will have to move out”.Gautam gently moved back.
Eventually I felt relaxed.Something just told me,”this school can handle my son better “.

Most of the schools we have been to earlier would simply judge my son as someone with destructive mindset because they just didn’t understand the condition of ADHD .

I want to discuss the Term ADHD so that people understand such so called attention deficit hyper kids , their restlessness and ADHD.

It is never the fault of the child that he behaves like the way he does .

A hyper child’s brain works differently as compared to the normal kids.An ADHD kid suffers from neurological issue. The child doesn’t do things he does deliberately. The urge to be on the go comes from within .It is purely uncontrollable.,Only if the child could be trained to have more self-control and focus, he would behave differently. It’s not easy for ADHD child .He /she gets no fun but on the contrary struggles with such issues. Most of the people are not aware of such conditions of the child and they form an opinion ,” “It must be the parents’ fault that the child behaves this way”.
Every parent will prefer a disciplined child.But in such case the parent is as helpless as the child and it is wrong to hold the parent responsible.
It is a complicated neural cognitive issue and not a regular behavioural matter

ADHD refers to the neural complications,affective,conative , cognitive and neural disturbances of the child. It does not simply refer to the child being indisciplined, mischievous , out of control. not just about being “hyper” nor , not listening and following instructions .His visible behaviour is just a minor fraction of what he has been mentally suffering internally. He suffers and finds it difficult in many other areas of his life which may not be apparently seen by all of us. He struggles to handle even those routine things of life which for your normal kids are just a daily chorus . My ADHD child finds it difficult to manage his homework. He loses track of his time .He often loses his little things like pen, pencil, copies, notebooks and sometimes even his school bag. His chain of thoughts get derailed, and emotions go haywire . He just lives for the moment, the hour and the day,because he does not know where his mind will move next or what he needs to attend to next .

1.Should we hold parents responsible if the child is not normal
It is possible that all parents will show some leniency ,some tolerance and patience towards their young children.We don’t always present a picture of perfection in our upbringing. We may not always do the right thing as a parent, but my parenting isn’t the cause of his challenges. Yes, I discipline him. And when he acts out, I give him consequences. But what works with other kids often doesn’t work with him. Or it doesn’t work every time. Sometimes I blame myself, even though I’m not sure what I’m blaming myself for.
2.Is he really rude or insulting. Trust me , he is not He’s not being rude or defiant.
Well, he can be those things from time to time, just like any kid. But the behaviour you may see as disrespectful (to me, or to other people) isn’t really that. Once my son realizes he’s been hurtful or made others unhappy, he feels sorry too and can apologise too. He doesn’t mean to hurt anyone

3. Parents try hard to teach their child and believe me the child would try equally hard to learn and change.
Parents need to make schedules and checklists to try to keep things on track. A disciplined schedule,a set of role-play can teach ways to him to could handle day to day life differently. The ADHD child has to work a little harder every day to keep himself focussed both in school and at home .Believe me it can be very challenging.

4.It is not easy for a parent to put a young child on medication and counseling but for child’s own benefit I have done that too and would advise all those with an ADHD child to evaluate the option.It will be in the long run a completely helpful step.

5. People should look into him beyond the child’s sickness. The child will have many other talents to exhibit and develop his personality only if we don’t simply make him a subject of ridicule and anger all the time.

adhdSachin (name changed)a young boy of 12 and a student of grade 7th had been termed a big nuisance by his class teachers.They could hardly control his activities.He would just not sit at one place in the classroom.

Mindful Perceptive Meditation helps calm the hyper mind and delivers the attention training that brings about the much needed self-control.

Mindful Perceptive Meditation is neither religious nor does it promote any kind of cult. It basically involves perceiving your own breathings and vibrations, sensitivity of the endocrine glands of body thereby relaxing all your anxiety, stress and emotional upheavals .It transports you to a stage of oneness with your true inner self. Mindful perceptive Meditation connects you to your emotions , to your thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensitivity and brings about a greater awareness of what’s going on within you. It brings about a complete sense of physical,mental, psychological emotional well-being.

Mindful Perceptive Meditation have been very effectively used by us to treat anxiety stress and depression. It helps control hypertension and brings down blood pressure .We have successfully verified its positive impact in the treatment of thyroid disorder . Mindful Perceptive Meditation has been effectively used in managing chronic neurological disorders and mood disorders.

It trains the mind in the process of self-observation , trains to take care of all kinds of negativity and develop an internal power of positivity, attention, and to develop different faculties of mind and intellect . It makes the subject better aware of his or her emotional state of mind and impulsivity.

IS THE MINDFUL PERCEPTIVE MEDITATION AN ALTERNATIVE CURE OR A COMPLIMENTARY CURING PROCESS FOR ADHD .
