DO YOU HAVE TO FIGHT OR ALREADY GO TO THE DOCTOR?


But learned helplessness is much easier to prevent than to cure. If an inexperienced dog is taught first of all to avoid current and only then subject it to uncontrollable shocks, then in a new collision with a current that can be avoided, the animal will still try to do it: he already has the experience of victory, and even the subsequent experience of defeat could not completely destroy will to resist. Apparently, it is for this reason that the helplessness learned in Seligman's experiments was easier developed in dogs grown in greenhouse conditions in the laboratory than in the mongrels who grew up on the street: the first had no experience in overcoming unpleasant situations, and the second had it. This, in my opinion, is the most important conclusion in the whole story about learned helplessness. Experimental psychology tells us: the experience of victory is very important, for the sake of it it is even worth crawling.
Developing learned helplessness is possible not only in dogs. Similar experiments were carried out on many other animals, from cockroaches to humans. Representatives of our species do not even have to be shocked - it is enough to give a knowingly unsolvable puzzle so that the probability of successfully completing any subsequent tasks drops sharply. In general, the main principle for developing learned helplessness is to create a situation in which the subject cannot understand the logic of the events, predict them or influence them. It is not even necessary that these are bad events, in principle only the absence of a connection between the actions and the result.
Another remarkably effective method of forming emotional, behavioral, and cognitive impairments is chronic moderate stress. Nobody beats animals with animals, does not scoff, does not force them to solve obviously unsolvable tasks. They just happen all the time in life various minor troubles. On Monday there is no water in the drinking bowl. On Tuesday, there is water, but in the cage they add some kind of bloke. On Wednesday in the laboratory sounds unpleasant loud sounds. On Thursday there is no food. On Friday, wet and dirty bedding in a cage. On Saturday, they forgot to turn off the lights for the night. On Sunday, instead of normal lighting dim flickering light. And so on. Separately, animals would recover from each of these problems a day, if they were stressed at all, but when such a nasty life lasts two to three weeks, they develop a persistent decrease in mood (which manifests itself, for example, in that they completely lose interest sweet food is a sign of anhedonia, loss of interest in life in general). From a neurophysiological point of view, it is primarily about reducing the release of dopamine in the nucleus accumbens. To return the animals to normal health, it is necessary either to create comfortable conditions for them for a few more weeks, or to feed them with human antidepressants.
In real life, we are constantly confronted with chronic moderate stress. The bus went right out of the nose, it suddenly started to rain, the computer hung and the document was not saved, the salesman got drunk, the light bulb burned out. In small doses, all these events are absolutely safe for the psyche, but if a new trouble comes faster than you had time to forget the old one, then sooner or later it can turn you into a pumpkin. It may be worthwhile to pay more attention to the situation control, for example, always carry an umbrella with you and buy 120 spare light bulbs so that they never run out of the house.
Other people can build a well-learned helplessness to other people — if they take on the function of that unsolvable puzzle from laboratory experiments and are emotionally meaningful for us. Beloved ones, whose demands are internally contradictory (“you are too attached to me” at the same time as “you do not appreciate me enough”). Parents who will never be happy with us, no matter how hard we try (there will always be some son of Marya Ivanovna, who studies better first, earns more, is always more attentive to the family and is generally similar to the horizon, which you will never reach, - and, by the way, like this line, does not exist in objective reality). The boss, who scolds you for clearly following your own instructions - and, of course, scolding you even more if you adjust them as you see fit. The government, which does not even consider it necessary to hide from courtesy that the election results do not depend on your will. Well, and so on. The above examples, however, have been little studied in laboratories, because the terms “learned helplessness” and “chronic moderate stress” are relatively rarely applied to a person. These conditions usually form in animals and are considered as an experimental model for studies of human depression.

    You can make a wish, loudly and distinctly pronounce it to our magic cat, Sonya - Golden Puzo, which works day and night, fulfilling desires, and it will surely be fulfilled, but remember about the state of soaring!

  3. What you can already do - 2, just don't know about it yet or pretend you can't
    You can reflect on the topic of "Signs". Such reflections pushed me on such magic. In our huge yard live several black cats - at the same time I saw three. Their impudence was limitless, and the power of influence on my life is amazing to the ability to spoil everything on the day when a black cat came across to me on the road. And so it went on until I became
  4. Should I confess to my spouse, with whom I have been living for twenty-four years, that I no longer love him, but treat him like a brother?
    I think that he also knows about it. Wouldn't it be better for me to leave him so that each of us could cultivate on our own? You are not mistaken, thinking that the husband is aware of what is happening to you, although perhaps he is not fully aware of this. I see that your relationship suffers largely from inability to communicate. I even think that you should share as soon as possible.
  5. My daughter is four and a half years old, and I've been married for eight years now. I would like to know how to improve relations with my alcoholic husband, who has been abstaining from alcohol for a year and three months.
    The most effective means is communication. You must learn to talk with your husband, without complaining about fate, without blaming him or trying to change him. How to learn this? Tell him about your feelings frankly, without reserve, while remaining natural. Tell him, for example, about what you have experienced in the past, what you are experiencing now: about your hopes, fears, fears, observations,

  9. ANTIRAQUE DIET Dr. Laskin: continuation of the topic
    Diet ... This word has become so familiar lately that we have forgotten its original meaning - in Greek, whence its origin (diaita), it denotes a broad concept - a way of life.

What we will tell you has a special purpose, since it

  12. Word of Dr. William and Martha
    Having worked for a thirty-year-old pediatrician, I noticed that there is something uniquely beautiful about the relationship between breastfed babies and their mothers. Breast-fed babies are healthier, and if they do get sick, they get better quickly. But besides that, the lactating couples that I took in my office taught me that breastfeeding is not only a way of eating. This and

    Jack Newman, MD, FRCPC Translated from French by Elena Volkova, All health care professionals say they support breastfeeding.

    Pay attention to your own words: “to return the obviously lost love”. That is, you believe that you have lost the love of your spouse. How did you come to this conclusion?

It is sometimes difficult to see the true picture of what is happening if you are in a close relationship with someone. At

It has already been mentioned above that the excessive work of the muscles of inhalation in adverse conditions leads to their exhaustion and exhaustion. Ventilation completely eliminates the work of the muscles and, on the one hand, gives them rest, but on the other hand, the inaction of the respiratory muscles causes rapidly increasing dystrophic processes in it.
