What is Disorder?

  • Disorders such as Bipolar disorder, Personality Disorders. or Anxiety Disorders can only be “Diagnosed” by healthcare―professionals or psychologists.
  • One maybe diagnosed with 6 disorders or 1 disorder – this does not mean one is anymore “screwed up” than the other.
  • Disorder is categorized for the purposes of treatment & management between a client, therapist & healthcare―providers.
  • There are legal and professional standards that healthcare―providers in mental-physical health must abide by – that’s what the literature is about: DSM4 DSM5

Gestalt therapy perspective

  • Self awareness not why but:
  • how and when? do ” I feel angry and sad “.
  • Moral- am I judging myself for feeling angry? sad? or tired?
  • How and When do I judge myself.. others environment.
  • Ambivalence: do i feel “conflicting” sensations? ↓Examples:↓
  • thrilled but angry and anxious
  • sad but tuned_in
  • relaxed.. but tight in the legs or chest

At a good time (when sad happy or angry etc.)
can I observe between “me” and “not―me” :

  • projection — eg. expressing feeling in drawing or painting ; blaming someone or somthing)
  • Deflection — avoiding both good or bad feeling for another time)
  • confluence — losing sense of self to the outside world, or defending in reaction
  • retroflection — turning ones desires for others (especially with anger) back and substituding ones self) i.e. self blame and self harm
  • Introjection — absorbents in the interactions between “me” and “not―me” without processing (metabolizing)
Anger is part of depression. Anger is part of all of us in daily life.
the good choices we make are in
how to manage are emotions, sensations and Affects so they are not regular intrusions or regularly destructive.
This Management.
This is Anger. This is Depression.

One might find breathing exercises beneficial.

Journey of life – education


Nice rendition of a popular lecture of Alan Watts.

Video address the relative standards of how one or a group is trained in the present post academic job and career market.
When does one, or a family feel the sense of achievement, satisfaction and purpose in the context of finances, when goals and quotas are more tangible then in the moment rewards.
Another Edit of Alan Watts Lecture- can be found here:

Sopwhith Snoopy and the Red Baron Christmas Carol

My favorite Christmas song, from as long as I can remember , has been The Royal Guardsman’s   Christmas version of “Snoopy and the Red Baron“.  I’ve posted this before here… but “let’s do it again”.

 

 
Snoopy fought his phantom foe: World War I flying Ace, “the Red Baron”, on his imaginary Sopwith Camel biplane.
They are still at it, over all the technology changes in our world.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

World Wide Telescope Pictures

I grew up with a love of astronomy. I had often visited the planetarium at the North Museum near where I grew up.
My parents bought me a plastic “planetarium ” with a 70 watt bulb as to light up my room with the stars, when I was a kid.

Recently, I was discouraged with my attempt to
photograph the lunar Eclipse Last year.

(See the bad photo to the right)

Fortunately I have found an easier way to view pictures of the heavens.

The Microsoft Research World Wide Telescope

this is really cool astronomy Browser and it is educational, this is the kind of software that makes me feel like a kid again.

The World wide Telescope is incredibly addictive for science geeks like me. Its an open source product (that means its free software as long as you follow the T&S)
