PTSD, THE REAL STORY
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
If you are interested in the letters 'PTSD,' and you have done some research, I bet you failed to see any mention of the "MIND" of Man. Let us see what the Mayo Clinic has to say about the phrase "Post Traumatic Stress Disorder" ?
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) - Mayo Clinic
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a "mental" health condition that's triggered by a terrifying event
Well, the Mayo clinic is correct, partially. But only Partially... and this is a crucial point that is generally unknown. And the fact is that this "unknown" is unknown... is the" problem. Why are so many Veterans committing suicide? The answer is... Improper Treatment. Now... is the reader "interested" enough in the unknown aspects of PTSD to read about the "problem"?
Man naturally fears the 'unknown,' and there is nothing to be ashamed of in doing so. But when one is CHARGED with helping a Veteran deal with PTSD... because it is the unknown operating Within the MIND of the Veteran that the Veteran must discover and resolve... the person seeking to "help" the Veteran MUST NOT MAKE THE PROBLEM WORSE!
THE FACT IS... unless the person helping the Veteran has therapeutically removed the deeply repressed fears from "Within" his/her own MIND, that person will [unintentionally] convey those fears to the MIND of the Veteran! And this is a Psychological fact, and it is not being considered today!
... And the fact that the improperly trained Mental health worker has not gone through the proper treatment to remove the fears from "Within" his or her own MIND... Means that he or she "will" TRANSFER THESE FEARS TO THE MIND of the Veteran. And the ONLY way to avoid this is IF THE MENTAL HEALTH WORKER IS PROPERLY TRAINED.
ALAS, this is taking place across the nation today. And since those in charge of MENTAL HEALTH in America today have no idea what the MIND is... the chances of correcting this problem are slim to none!
The reason modern mental health is ignorant of the MIND of Man has to do with modern mental health following the Delusional Thinking of B.F. Skinner, a scientist untrained in Psychology, whose own fear of his own MIND caused him to be quoted as saying this:
Evans, Richard I. B.F. Skinner: The Man and His Ideas. New York: E.P. Dutton & Co., 1968
"A child is influenced and changed as a biological entity by things that happen to him, but the notion that somehow or other the child of our past is still contained within us [Skinner is talking about the MIND of Man] is a form of animism which serves no useful purpose in explaining present behavior."
