Man is a bio-psycho-social creature. biological part; They are concrete information codes patterned by DNA, which carry generational transmission and are transferred from generation to generation. Our genes. Much of our biochemical cycle is carried over from parent genes. The learning process, for example the taste receptors on our tongue, begins to be coded in the womb. We can think of this roughly as the floor of a house that existed before the house was built.
For psychology, we can say that the relationship that a person establishes with himself and his environment, the exchange of emotions and behavior. We begin to learn from infancy.
The social part, on the other hand, is the determining environmental conditions such as the neighborhood where this building is located, the zoning permit of that building, its earthquake protection, neighbor relations. In the first period of human development, he will learn to speak and words within the boundaries of the culture to which he is attached. The structure you were born into; It is the base that determines your expression, economic class, moral strata, gender roles, educational structure, identity and belief. In general, we do not know the outside with what we feed from inside, but the inside with what we feed from outside.
Every culture brings with it at least 3 pathological predispositions for every person. One of the most common chronic findings revealed by the culture, agenda and relationships we live in is anxiety-related experiential problems defined as anxiety.
I made a broad start in the introduction, because trying to explain anxiety with singular situations will lead us to the results of the existing situation, not to its causes. The main thing in pathological findings related to anxiety is the causes, not the results. To give a few examples of the results;
-Fear of flying,
– A claustrophobic life in an elevator or in narrow cabins,
– Anxiety about being cheated on,
The thought of harming the people close to us,
-Using a vehicle
– Crossing the bridge ).
These experiences are not the source of the problem, they are situations that are often encountered at flood points and match with anxiety.
We can think of negative experiences that are difficult to express verbally in detail, where we feel the feeling of being cornered for the moment, and our body reacts out of the norm (such as not being able to breathe, increased heart rhythm, palpable increase in heart rate, spasmodic stomach, muscle aches) as the consequences of anxiety.
We can measure anxiety problems through the reality of the stimulus. For example, imagine that there is a dog chasing you by barking behind you. In order not to be harmed, we try to get rid of this threat with all our might, depending on the fight or flight principle. All systems in our body will become vigilant with the hormones it secretes into the brain. Our body temperature increases, our veins expand, cortisol hormone secretion increases, our pupils dilate, our breathing changes. In panic, our temperature increases. This threat, state of alarm is a positive response to our bodily integrity. It keeps us alive. What if our body shows these reactions to the possibility of a barking dog when a barking dog is not around?
We can define anxiety problems simply as the pressure of our body and emotions, as if experiencing a threat, when the stimulus is not real.
These experiences can be nourished from bio-genetic origins (family genes), as well as as a result of negative experiential experiences, losses, addictions, traumas or depressed experiences.
Many variables such as the content, severity, depth of the anxiety experiences, how long it lasts, what period it starts with, who it is shared with, and its learnedness will determine the working principle, namely the intervention for treatment. The most common question related to this topic is about what will be good for these negative experiences. However, it is almost impossible to present a result-oriented common recipe. As important as it is to design a textile product that you wear according to your dimensions, it is the most important issue to work with anxiety experiences with the sensitivity of a tailor.
Depending on the content of the situation and emotion, therapy schools and interventions vary.
In some cases, psychiatry supplements play the most important role, while in some cases a regular exercise program will help us get to where we want to be.
How does a loss or negative experience that we encounter in a period of our life spread to the future?
The metaphor of war for anxiety experiences, although it is an example of aphakia, can make it easier for us to comprehend. Imagine that the country that was once your next door neighbor has entered your territory and you have lost life, property and land. After this period, you may need to design an army related to your need to be ready for an unexpected attack. A massive, powerful new army. However, gathering this army will require you to invest most of your time, effort and money here. This will be the agenda.
Then let’s think
Wouldn’t the existence of such an army put you in the psychology of war every day?
But what if you don’t get attacked again. What will you do with this army?
In the example given above, the Diplomacy-Bureaucracy process will come into play in order to prevent conflicts between countries and to achieve mutual reconciliation. After periods of war in our individual lives, we need a safe space. Acting as if we don’t need this area can bring the war, which is about being alert at all times, to the center of our lives, even if there is no real war outside. In general, the deterioration of this field is caused by a relationship with one person, but the recovery of this experience is another person, the relationship.
Experiences of fear, anxiety, anxiety and stress, which are triggered by artificial stimulants, will increase biological and psychological damage. In the long run, parts that provide the functionality of our body balance such as sleep, nutrition, cardio system and digestion can be damaged.
Negative findings related to anxiety problems (depending on the severity of the situation) will decrease with the treatment process.
A person drowns not because he falls into the river, but because he is under the water. Experiences such as swallowing water, fluttering, cramping when we fall are in the nature of learning to swim.
