5 stages of healing hurt

5 stages of healing hurt

(Based on the book –  Healing life’s hurts, By Mathiew Lynn S.J & Denni Lynn S.J) The First Stage – Denial Let’s take an example of cancer patients. There is not a single patient who does not deny it by talking about something else and pretending nothing has happened. Denial brings in psychological defense mechanisms and each one has his/her own, It can be rationalization justification, glorification – “It could have been worse “It is O.K. That is only his opinion”. “He would have done it because he became momentarily mad.” “It would have been worse” – “It happens to everybody”. In all these process we deny it is so. By denial you not only is just swallowing the pain, but also the fear and anger. Sometimes we repress the hurt feelings by alcohol, drug or with more subtle escape such as TV, Over work, sleep, over eating etc. At times people go from one escape to another without enjoying them. Defense mechanisms are many Rationalization, intellectualization, repression projection, fantasy, reaction formation etc. Sometimes Denial can be healthy for instance when we have a sudden physical hurt, the system gets into a shock to conserve energy and keep us off our feet. Just as physical shock is part of the healing of a physical trauma – When emotional shock occurs we go into emotional trauma, the emotional shock is manifested in the form of denial. It is a necessary response to bring back emotional health and should not be fought .Breakdowns can come when we are forced to face something we need to deny. So until we are ready to feel with a hurt it is best not to face it. Denial like worrying or grieving if moderately present helps us to work through our fears. Studies have shown like worrying and grieving denial, moderately present, help to work through our fears and helped patients recover from surgery. Patients were classified into those with excessive, moderate, and no worry groups depending upon how concerned they were about upcoming surgery. After surgery the excessive worrier [with too little denial] had the slowest recovery- The some was the case of no worries [too much denial] who were upset by the pain they hadn’t expected. The quickest recovery was with the moderate group [ with moderate denial] who were content going through the pain they expected. Their sedation need was also only half as much for post opera rate pain because the proper combination of worry and denial eliminated the emotional pain  Second stage – Anger Once the person passes the denial stage of any hurt [news of cancer] he/she becomes angry and starts criticizing everything and anything blaming the other. Very few drivers meeting with a car accident admit that it is their fault he/she blame the other drivers, the blind approach the slippery pavements or the car’s poor brakes. Anger needs a target Ways of expressing anger depend on how deeply we are hurt & how readily we express anger. Anger has as many shapes as people have. When angry, children wet beds, husbands withdraw behind work and newspaper, , gossip over the phone, some drown in drinks, food, pills drugs etc, if anger is swallowed long enough body will rebel with asthma attacks, ulcer, hyper tension, headaches, colitis arthritis,...

My experiences in TA Training at Asha

My experiences in TA Training at Asha

“Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly.” This quote encapsulates my tryst with ASHA. Going through a very rough patch of life with terminal illness and career uncertainties cutting a sad figure of my existence, ASHA gave me the much needed resuscitation to my asphyxiated soul. The sessions were just like a fall into the endless spirals of the rabbit hole of my own self and to confront the deepest fears. Mustering all the courage with the support of generous group members, I took the bull by its horns. A lot of revelations, both shocking and exciting, took my existence to a different level. During a personal work, I showed the audacity to expose the demons within me and experienced a strong catharsis. My eyes filled with tears, a rarity in my life – and my life was never the same. With the much shoulders of my group members to fall back, that is one moment cherished in the backyard of my memory. Slowly, I could nurture my inner self and get out of my comfort zone of all restrictions and limiting beliefs. By taking a bird’s eye view of my life through the lens of TA concepts, I could mend fences with my parents with whom I had a tough time getting along with. My friends could see my behaviour changing in front of my eyes and expressed their disbelief. My transformation from an infant to a toddler in self realization was only possible with the help of ASHA who took my hands to steady the faltering steps and be the guiding light. If I modify the dictum of Rene Descartes “Cogito ergo sum” and link with my tatg experience, it captures the essence of my take away from ASHA. “ I am in TATG, there for I exist”. ~Manu,TA...
