Let's talk about KEY concepts in working with trauma & psychosis - using yoga.

Did you like the conversation? Let's MEET-UP again!

At our first MEET-UP there was a guest: dr. Jules Tielens, a Dutch psychiatrist who's expertise is working with psychosis. We talked about what psychosis is according to the books and how dr. Tielens see this in his way.

He spoke about the importance of de-stressing psychotic people. Because, most of them feel, that they are hyper sensitive. And they are. This may has to do with the level of dopamine in the brain. Their brains can be very sensitive to noise, sounds, interpretations and signals they see. Their interpretations of what is happening in the world may be different than how other people see things.

Another doctor that I really like in the field, is dr. Jim van Os. He likes to see the word Schizophrenia replaced with the word: salience syndrome. First place because the word schizophrena is a highly stigmatizing word and also this is what a psychosis does: it's highlighting everything, which is stressful.

This easily creates confusion and disconnection (with themselves and the world around them) and can end up in isolation. Thats where lots of damage starts according to Jules and mine experiences. De-stressing, an open attitude towards psychosis, normalising and bringing in community could be very helpful.

MEET-UP #2 will be only with me, no guest this time. We will continou the conversation and I wil add the subjects of TRAUMA.
Trauma is very much under-diagnosed in psychosis and that is a real shame because:

Complaints are worse
Functioning is worse
PTSD is not often noticed, they do not get treatment
