TO FIGHT TO THEMSELVES OR TO GO TO THE DOCTOR?


But the learned helplessness is much easier to prevent than to heal. If an inexperienced dog is primarily taught to avoid current and only then to be subjected to uncontrolled impacts, 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 the will to resist. Apparently, it is for this reason that in the experiments of Seligman the learned helplessness developed more easily in dogs grown in hothouse conditions in the laboratory than in those who grew up on the street: the first had no experience of overcoming unpleasant situations, and the latter had it. This, in my opinion, is the most important conclusion in the entire history of the learned helplessness. Experimental psychology tells us: the experience of victory is very important, for it even it is worthwhile to climb under the current.
The development of learned helplessness is possible not only in dogs. Similar experiments were conducted on many other animals, from cockroaches to humans. Representatives of our species do not even need to be electrocuted - it is enough to give a deliberately unsolvable puzzle so that the probability of successfully completing any subsequent tasks is drastically reduced. In general, the main principle for developing learned helplessness is to create a situation in which the subject can not understand the logic of the events that occur, predict or influence them. It is not even necessary that these are bad events, in principle only the absence of a connection between actions and result.
Another remarkably effective method of forming emotional, behavioral and cognitive impairments is chronic moderate stress. No one beats an animal with an electric shock, does not mock, does not force to solve deliberately unsolvable tasks. They just have different small troubles in their life all the time. There's no water in the water tank on Monday. On Tuesday, there is water, but a cell is populated by some Khmyri. On Wednesday, unpleasant loud noises are heard in the laboratory. There's no food on Thursday. Friday wet and dirty bedding in a cage. On Saturday, they forgot to turn off the light for the night. On Sunday, instead of normal lighting, a dim glimmering light bulb. And so on. From each of these problems individually, animals would recover over a day if they were at all stressed, but when such an unpleasant life lasts two to three weeks, they develop a persistent decline in mood (which is manifested, for example, in the fact that they completely lose interest to 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 adjacent to it. To bring back the animals to normal state of 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 constantly face chronic moderate stress. The bus went straight from under the nose, suddenly it began to rain, the computer hung and the document was not preserved, the salesman was nagging, the light bulb burned out. In small doses, all these events are completely safe for the psyche, but if a new trouble comes faster than you have forgotten the old, sooner or later it can turn you into a pumpkin. Perhaps you should pay more attention to control over the situation, for example, always carry an umbrella and buy 120 spare bulbs so that they do not end in the house ever.
Classically learned helplessness can be well formed by other people - if they take upon themselves the function of that unsolvable puzzle from laboratory experiments and at the same time emotionally significant for us. Beloved, 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 must be some son of Marya Ivanovna who first learns better, then earns more, is always more attentive to the family and in general is like a horizon line that you will never reach, - and, by the way, like this line, does not exist in the objective reality). The boss who scolds you for clear execution of your own instructions - and, of course, scolds you even more if you correct them at your discretion. The government, which does not even consider it necessary to hide from politeness 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 for the human being the terms "learned helplessness" and "chronic moderate stress" are used relatively rarely. These conditions are usually formed in animals and are considered as an experimental model for the study of human depression.

  2. That you can already - 1, just do not know about it yet or hide your skill
    You can make a wish, loudly and distinctly pronounce it to our magic cat, Sonka - the Golden Puzo, which works day and night, fulfilling wishes without fail, and it will surely be fulfilled, but remember the state of soaring! Do not strain and do not get irritated - all desires will be fulfilled, if you are benevolent and calm. You can easily disperse a queue or cork on the road or in the subway,
  3. That you can already - 2, just do not know about it yet or pretend that you do not know how.
    You can reflect on the topic "Signs". I was pondered by such reflections on such a magic. There are several black cats living in our huge yard - at the same time I saw three. Their impudence was boundless, and the power of impact 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 then, until I became
  4. Should I admit to the wife with whom I have been living for twenty-four years already, that I no longer love him, but treat him like a brother?
    I think that he knows about it. Is it not better for me to leave him so that each of us can cultivate on our own? You are not mistaken, thinking that the husband guesses about what is happening to you, although, perhaps, he does not fully realize this. I see that your relationship suffers, to a large extent, from the 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 have been married for eight years. I would like to know how to establish a relationship with an 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 to your husband without complaining about fate, not blaming him for anything and not trying to change it. How can this be learned? Tell him about your feelings frankly, without concealment, remaining natural. Tell him, for example, about what you experienced in the past, what you are experiencing now: about your hopes, fears, fears, observations,
  6. Paracelsus - "doctor of both medical"
    The son of a physician-licensee of medicine Wilhelm Hohenheim, who came from an impoverished noble family, Paracelsus (Philippe Aureol Theophrastus Bombast von Hohenheim) (1493-1541) was born in Switzerland, and received his medical education at the University of Ferrara (Northern Italy). Training in this university gave much to Paracelsus, who also visited neighboring universities in Padua and Bologna. In 1516

  8. Dr. Laskin answers questions
    We seemed to be told in some detail in the pages of the journal "Physical Culture and Sport" about the anti-cancer diet of Dr. Laskin, based on porridge made from buckwheat, containing a large amount of quercetin. Let's remind right away that Laskin's diet can interest not only oncological patients, but everyone who would like to get rid of atherosclerosis or prevent its development,
  9. ANTIRAVKA DIETA Dr. Laskin: the continuation of the topic
    Diet ... This word has recently become so familiar that we forgot its original meaning - in Greek, where its origin (diaita), it denotes a broad concept - a way of life. And became accustomed because more often the diet is associated with the body weight of a person, and even easier - with getting rid of excess kilograms. What we tell you about, has a special purpose, since speech
  10. DOCTOR LASKIN ANSWERS READERS AND SUPPLIERS ITS DIET
    Of course, we do not exactly know how many of our readers used the Laskin diet for both prevention and treatment of cancer, but, of course, there are hundreds or maybe thousands of people. And therefore, let's talk about how the editors of the journal "Physical Culture and Sport" conducted work with readers, what questions they had (and still have) questions to the author of the diet, how we helped people in

    DOCTOR, LEAVE IT.
  12. The words of Dr. William and Martha
    WORKING THIRTY YEARS BY PEDIATRIC, I noticed that there is something uniquely beautiful in the relationship between breast-fed babies and their mothers. Breast-fed infants are more healthy, and if they do get sick, they get better sooner. But, besides this, nursing couples, which I took in my office, taught me that breastfeeding is not just a way of eating. This is

  15. What does "good or literate" and "bad or illiterate" PSYCHOLOGIST mean?
    So, who is who? - A good psychologist serves as a guide, he will teach you to solve problems yourself, finding resources inside. A bad psychologist will give you advice. - A good professional with a higher psychological or basic medical education. You can ask to show diplomas, certificates, awards. A good psychologist will be glad to brag about his achievements, bad for you

    One of the favorite rituals is that not all of them do, of course, but they always discuss with the greatest pleasure ... Slippery ritual for a husband New slippers are bought for the growing moon. The size is selected depending on the desired growth of the sucked. It is very important that the slippers were as good as possible. But the most important thing is that they "murch". Slippers for three days must brew in the corridor. Preferably,
  17. How to find out that your doctor does not support breastfeeding.
    Jack Newman, MD, FRCPC Translated from the French by Elena Volkova, All health professionals say they support breastfeeding. But many support it only when it happens successfully, and some do not support at all. Once a young mother has problems with breastfeeding, or something goes wrong in her life, too many specialists
  18. How to return the already clearly lost love of the spouse?
    Pay attention to your own words: "to return already obviously lost love." That is, you think that you have lost the love of your spouse. How did you come to this conclusion? Have you asked your husband about this? Did he confirm this? If not, then talk to him, make sure how much your assumptions are correct. Sometimes it is difficult to see the true picture of what is happening if you are with someone in a close relationship. When
  19. That you can already - 3, just do not know about it yet
    You can choose a lucky number. And you can join with us to the Wizards who have already chosen the number 27.

You can try to give people around you imaginative fantastic gifts and watch,
  20. Replace or maintain? (artificial or auxiliary ventilation)
    As is known, the respiratory muscles perform the work on providing self-breathing. It has already been mentioned above that excessive work of inspiratory muscles in unfavorable conditions leads to fatigue and exhaustion. Ventilation completely eliminates the work of muscles and, on the one hand, gives them rest, but on the other hand, inactivity of respiratory muscles causes rapidly growing dystrophic processes in it.
