Rapid resolution therapy … a good video explanation related to PTSD and psychosis
I am sharing this video mainly for the description that Kristen Rivas gives at 11:48 seconds. To me psychosis is like “jumping at the scary part of a movie” when I’m no longer watching the movie. The trauma is in the past. Or that I am jumping at the present day and there is nothing to jump about. I am on hyper alert. The best part of what she says is at 13:20. Kristen says “your mind has been confusing the data that we call memory with reality”. To me this relates to my last post when I talked a bit about the work of Dr. Dan Seigel on implicit memory and how it pops up in the present and muddle things up. I may try hypnotherapy as I am desperate to stay out of the psych ward. Last time was my 5th trip to the psych ward and it was the worst! I nearly got put on a “treatment plan” of 800mg of Seriquil. I had terrible waking nightmares. I am traumatized by the experience. I sense that if I go into psychosis again, my well meaning family will take me back there. I don’t want to go back there.
