I have found this article very interesting because I work with Warriors in Transition who suffer from PTSD. Group studies are unfortunately just measure a group and return a group average, not an individual diagnosis. A new theory aims to make sense of it all. A lot of emotional frailty leads back to parental oversheltering and lack of punishment or over-punishment at home (see "Nation of Wimps" on this site). My concern is that the DSM is continually expanding the list of personality and behavioural 'disorders' and professionals are all-too-keen to relate what Szasz has called 'problems in living' to incidents of childhood 'trauma'. Muscle cramp--no trauma. This tendency to infer causality from co-occurrence is not limited to humans; caged pigeons, receiving food at random intervals not related to their behavior, will nevertheless repeat any movement they happened to be doing before food appeared.

It starts with recognizing our own patterns and understanding why we came to be this way. A tear in the muscle can be identified via sonography and treated with anti-inflammatory agents and rest - a tear in the psyche can neither be objectively determined nor, ultimately, 'corrected'.

But human beings are not bacteria, and good training is not a traumatic event. I agree with the premise of this article. I believe that trauma and suffering left untreated or undealt with certainly weakens, but I believe the opportunity also exists for some to use their pain as a way to grow at least spiritually stronger. For instance, if upon viewing traumatic images, a post-traumatic person's 'emotional' center was triggered, as well as specific regions of executive function, it would seem that the contrary conclusion this article would be true - that the 'traumatic' experience merely merged emotive registers with problem solving activity. “A happy marriage doesn’t mean you have a perfect spouse or a perfect marriage. When we describe someone's personality, we usually do it in terms of the way they behave and their "heart" as it were, which we can only infer from observing their behavior. As if one's relation to it had nothing to do with how one is deploying one's will. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death. Do you mean there is no research that indicates the family is a system? It does affect many things other than personality.

The only sensible way to live is without rules. Don't be fooled by its passive, event-follows-event way of framing human life! To invoke another, more whimsical, quote from Goldman's The Princess Bride, 'Life is pain - anyone who says differently is selling something.' Hence, the ideal of the 'Ubermensch' - the one who could embrace his suffering and incorporate it into an aesthetic re-formation of the self in order to say a resounding 'yes' to life. Once we have acquired a certain belief, we tend to see, remember, and report mostly instances and events that support it.

It reminds me of the ways that positivists misconstrue religion - first of all by reducing it to the kind of discourse that they themselves prefer to engage in. Friedrich Nietzsche. This is called confirmation bias. You can read Judith Harris's The Nurture Assumption to see a nice summary of the issue. As I myself have endured life's trials and tribulations that have infact made me a stronger person in many aspects, but on the other hand, one who has come to the realization of understanding those weaknesses brought on by life's trials and tributlations and overcoming them is what makes you stronger, not the hardship itself. The Joker in the movie The Dark Knight (2008) uses this phrase in a slightly altered way "Whatever doesn't kill you, simply makes you stranger!" I appreciate your point.

Professionals working within the medical, psychological and sociological spheres would do well to critically reassess what they are peddling every time they invoke the concept of 'trauma', as well as identify precisely what it is they wish to achieve with us - the 6.9 billion human 'survivors' of pain and suffering that we might universally stigmatise as being 'disordered' by trauma.

I don't see that the last generation was "loved" when they were given "stuff" and left to their own devices with video games, generous allowances, and allowed to alienate themselves and others with techonology all the while seeing the glamorization of really bad,self-hating, egocentric behavior among celebrities.

One more reason to love the stuffin out of your kids, and any kids you come in contact with. As a visual artist of skill who has struggled for years for personal reasons, some of which are traumatic, I must say that the only thing more difficult than continuing to find the motivation to do anything but lay down and die *which is how I have felt for much of my life) is trying to find a way to cope with the all pervasive notion that my suffering should somehow lead to the production of excellent art and when...it inevitably does not how to deal with the ensuing feelings that there is some thing horribly wrong with me because it has not. It was a good article yet missing the personal touch. What proves your point is siblings. 94. The reverse may likely be said of a person that merges their emotive response with lower-order/instinctual functions of the brain. See, the problem with most of the people who disagree with this article is that they see/think (erroneously) that coddling is what the doctor is talking about, one more way to validate your own issues at the expense of reality.
