The drugs used to alter the behavior pattern that is now widely referred to as ADHD are promoted as being highly effective. In this post, I review the scientific literature and conclude that the effectiveness statements are exaggerated and misleading. Am I right? http://www.frominsultstorespect.com/2014/12/21/the-myth-of-ritalins-effectiveness/

La ira: la reacción a la frustración

La ira es una emoción más como lo puede ser la tristeza o el enfado. En ocasiones cuando las personas se sienten amenazadas actúan con ira. Además,   está presente en todos los ámbitos de nuestra sociedad, desde el tráfico hasta la familia. En sí misma, la ira no es una emoción ni buena, ni mala. Es una emoción más que podemos sentir en momentos determinados ante la frustración o ante un trato injusto. El sentimiento no es el problema en sí,   sino lo que hacemos con él. Normalmente,   cuando se actúan con ira se eleva la voz, se grita, se pelea, se empuja, se tiran cosas al suelo… las personas que reaccionan con ira suelen tener conductas de riesgo para la propia persona así como para las personas de su entorno. ¿ Recuerdas la última vez que actuaste con ira? ¿Cómo te sentiste después?. Lo cierto es que no suele ser una reacción agradable, de hecho no suele gustar estar con una persona que estalla de forma descontrolada y que dice y hace cosas que luego cuesta olvidar. En resumen, la ira infiriere en las relaciones con los demás y perjudica a los que más quieres. Hay personas que intentan justificar sus reacciones de ira, tachándola como una forma de expresión, o que las personas del entorno son demasiado sensibles o que se necesita reaccionar con ira para ganar respeto, o bien porque está pasado por un momento de estrés. Sin embargo, lo único que se consigue es dañar al otro, tener un impacto negativo sobre tu forma de ser y provocar niveles altos de estrés. Las personas que tienen ira crónica son más vulnerables a padecer enfermedades cardíacas, padecer niveles altos de colesterol,   debilita su sistema inmunológico y suelen tener la presión arterial alta. Lo que suele subyacer a la ira en muchas ocasiones es una baja tolerancia a la frustración, sensibilidad a la crítica y una falta de estrategias de afrontamiento ante situaciones que se viven como amenazantes.   Ellis y Grieger afirman que las personas que mantienen creencias que favorecen la ira están constantemente programando su cerebro para reaccionar enfadándose, incluso ante sucesos que no alterarían lo más mínimo a otras personas. Algunas de estas creencias pueden ser: Percibir que lo que está ocurriendo es algo amenazante. Anticipar sucesos irritantes y exagerar que algo pueda ocurrir. Recordar una y otra vez sucesos desagradables. Tener la creencia que las cosas tienen y deben de ser una forma determinada. “debería de ser…” o “tendría que ser…”   La entrada La ira: la reacción a la frustración aparece primero en Paula Cañeque Psicóloga .

"The simple truth is all of us—loved or not—are drawn to the familiar and, unconsciously, we’re attracted to what we know. This is actually a really great formula for success if you were raised by parents who loved and supported you. The chances are very good that you’ll ferret out those people who are interested in control and manipulation in a heartbeat, and end up with someone who’s looking for the same things you are: mutual interdependence, open communication, intimacy, and support. That isn’t true for the insecurely attached daughter whose emotional needs weren’t met in childhood, especially if she’s anxiously attached."

Not worrying about anything is everything
Most of the things we worry about never happen, but they are still bad for our health. There are ways to reduce our natural tendency to fret or even harness it for good.

Which is better options CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) or hypnotherapy OR BOTH?!

Using hypnosis, a safe and highly successful therapy, means that we are able to work with the CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) techniques at a deeper and more profound level, allowing us to directly influence emotions and behaviour. We are able to deal successfully with the irrational fears and negative thinking patterns that prevent you from getting the best out of your life.   The hypnotic state makes us more responsive to positive suggestions and it allows us to use our imagination to bring about positive solutions.

Translated from the original German, this short work by Sigmund Freud presents the basics of psychoanalytic method. This is the version approved by Anna Freud and Sigmund Freud's estate as representing the clearest translation of his words. Enjoy the review.

+Kenny Chaffin Agreed. Though some of his theories have not withstood the scrutiny of modern psychology, he did offer the first comprehensive theory of the unconscious and a method to access its secrets.

I do appreciate a helping hand yet I must say that discontent is typically a call from the being that one needs to defend themselves meaning, that sane appropriation of defense is all one needs master? Is it a sane calling of the whole sentient person to guard (?)? Psycho-emotional exercise prompted by environmental stimuli being the basic builder of every individual identity makes the anser just as unique as every other temporally displaced microcosm. Therefore scientific philosophy and religious practice, so much as my own demand for educational reform. To enable each to better know.
