Psychoterapia

Ofiary przemocy domowej żyją w długotrwałym strachu, izolacji i wzmacnianej zależności od partnera. Często obwiniają samych siebie lub zaczynają wierzyć w rzeczywistość przestawianą przez partnera. Czekają no to aż się zmieni, wierząc w obietnice poprawy. Odejście zawsze jest trudne.

Doświadczanie przemocy domowej może mieć długotrwałe skutki na zdrowiu psychicznym. Często rezultatem może być depresja, stres, ciągły niepokój, obniżone poczucie własnej wartości oraz symptomy zespołu stresu pourazowego.  Silny lęk i brak zaufania do innych może utrudniać nawiązywanie nowych relacji.

Psychoterapia stwarza bezpieczną przestrzeń aby przyjrzeć się temu co trudne i bolesne, wzmocnić własne poczucie wartości, zmienić negatywny obraz samego siebie i odbudować swoje życie.

Tworzenie Bezpiecznego Planu

To kroki które możesz podjąć, aby zwiększyć swoje bezpieczeństwo i swoich dzieci w sytuacji kryzysowej.

trzymaj przy sobie ważne numery telefonów
naucz dzieci dzwonić pod 999
spakuj najważniejsze rzeczy i schowaj w bezpiecznym miejscu
u kogo możesz się zatrzymać w nagłym wypadku?
poproś o pomoc zaufanego sąsiada
trzymaj przy sobie jakieś pieniądze, drobne na autobus, telefon etc.
sprawdź gdzie jest najbliższa budka telefoniczna, trzymaj przy sobie swój telefon komórkowy
przeprowadź próbę ucieczki
bądź przygotowana na opuszczenie domu w krytycznej sytuacji

Gdzie możesz pójść:

Schronisko to bezpieczne zakwaterowanie dla kobiet i dzieci. Oddzielny pokój dla siebie i dzieci, inne pomieszczenia użytkowane są wspólnie. Adres jest poufny. Możesz tam zostać jak długo będziesz potrzebować.

National Domestic Violence Helpline
(prowadzony przez Womens’ Aid and Refuge mogą pomóc w znalezieniu miejsca w schronisku – refuge)

Awaryjne Zakwaterowanie – jeżeli nie możesz zostać w swoim domu z powodu przemocy domowej lokalne władze urzędu zakwaterowania powinny zapewnić Tobie tymczasowe lokum. Wszystkie lokalne urzędu działają inaczej i musisz zwrócić się do swojego lokalnego urzędu (local council) bezpośrednio.

Awaryjnym zakwaterowaniem zwykle bywa: bed and breakfast, hostel lub schronisko.

The Likely Cause of Addiction

The Likely Cause of Addiction

The Likely Cause of Addiction Has Been Discovered, and It Is Not What You Think

“Loving an addict is really hard. When I looked at the addicts I love, it was always tempting to follow the tough love advice doled out by reality shows like Intervention — tell the addict to shape up, or cut them off. Their message is that an addict who won’t stop should be shunned. It’s the logic of the drug war, imported into our private lives. But in fact, I learned, that will only deepen their addiction — and you may lose them altogether. I came home determined to tie the addicts in my life closer to me than ever — to let them know I love them unconditionally, whether they stop, or whether they can’t.

The full story of Johann Hari‘s journey — told through the stories of the people he met — can be read in Chasing The Scream: The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs, published by Bloomsbury. The book has been praised by everyone from Elton John to Glenn Greenwald to Naomi Klein. You can buy it at all good bookstores and read more at www.chasingthescream.com

Self-harm

Self-harm is not just attention seeking

Category : News

Self-harm

An interesting article about self-harm. Aims at raising awareness about the issue and encourages to talk about it openly. The focus of the article is on young people and in particular on young girls. Statistics show that they are twice more likely to self-harm than young males. As the author states: ‘’The causes of self-harm are likely to be complex, even if the person self-harming does not see the issues in that way’’. Often it is the high level of distress that causes people to self-harm. It becomes the way of coping with stress and emotions. Professor Brooks, from the University of Hertfordshire, challenges the stigma, that self harming young girls are simply attention seeking.

“Nowadays, young people are in a much more uncertain world than before. Instead of self-harming just being dismissed as attention seeking, it’s something that needs to be taken seriously. ”

The skill of doing nothing

The following article presents five reasons for learning the skill of doing nothing. We all need periods of rest and withdrawal – to recharge, assimilate our experiences, reflect and mobilize energy for new actions. In Gestalt therapy this period of withdrawal is vital in our healthy functioning and it’s called the fertile void. Indeed learning how to do nothing might be the most vital skill for thriving in our busy and overwhelmed culture.

Possible benefits:

It helps to relish the moment and to feel more alive.

Triggers your unconscious mind and creativity.

Winding down you give yourself space to confront what matters.

Your brain has time to process and store the data.

You learn to control your attention.
