Problemformation and resolution
Theproblems that occur in the day to day human interactions are anoutcome of the state of mind. The manner in which we think informshow we relate in different circumstances. The mind, however, is acomplex organ in which many issues are processed to control the wholebody. Therefore, it suffices to note that a myriad of factors fallinto play in the mind to cause the shaping of psychological orpersonal problems. The problems we experience are caused bypsychological factors, which in turn spread to the outside asbehavior (Gawronski,2009).It is imperative to outline the many a factor that contributes to thedevelopment of problems. They are: Genetics, Substance abuse,Injuries, among others.
Inthis article, I aim at representing an understanding of personalproblems, what contributes to their formation and possible solutions.
Themodern era is satiated with numerous cases of disorders caused bypsychological factors and biological processes. The likelihood of thepresent day man to wind up in personal problems is increased due tothe level of instability accounted for by modern day statistics. Itis affirmed that human interactions in the contemporary world haveexhibited extreme strain as a consequence of the devaluation of oneanother or rather our relations. The problems stem from man’sdesire to find one’s self, that is, to create a personalityidentity. It is in this vein that failure to identify one’s selfresults in frustrations, which consequently forms the problems. Itcould also be that a person acts in imitation of who they are not tofit into the society for recognition, when in the real sense it doesnot depict their true self. Such persons develop disordersunimaginable because it is difficult to reconcile two dissimilarpersonalities. The driving factor in all these situations is the mind(Gawronski,2009).
Themind served with biological and mental causes informs the reactionsto the varied circumstances consequential to those causes. Forinstance, a discussion on the impact of genetics on problem formationpostulates that a person might display certain problems in his life,resulting from the influence of genes inherited from parents. Itexplains that some disorders are passed from parent to offspring.Genetics also influences the manner of a person’s response todifferent mental concerns. The disorders that are experienced by manypeople are caused by conditions already existent in their biologicalsystems (Gawronski,2009).I hold the belief that among factors that cause problem formation,biogenic causation is extensively entrenched in the array of factorsthat influence how personal problems are formed.
Notably,inillustration, a person is also predisposed to psychological problemsas a result of their involvement in substance abuse. Many a time, thereason for engaging in substance abuse is supposedly to avoid aproblem and claim solace in the substance. However, it is invariablyas a result of that mindset that persons involved in substance abuseindulge constantly without stop causing them to undergo numerousimpairments and related disorders. This disorders arise from mentalcauses. Psychological problems are also formed by physical factors. Apersons physical injuries may have adverse effect on his mentalhealth. For example, a loss of leg by a person in an accident couldaffect the way he views himself. He might think that he has lost hisself worth, which results in low self esteem. Consequently, itinfluences his personality identity leading to psychologicaldifficulty.
Psychologicalproblems are also caused by environmental factors. In certainenvironments, the mind could be subjected to constraint due toworries and anxiety. It ultimately impacts on the mental health of anindividual. The surrounding within which a person lives has a stronginfluence on his thoughts and as a result impacts on his thoughtprocess. Some issues could weigh down on the mind causing it todevelop psychological problems. In this case, the causes would resultin stress, which disrupts the normal functioning of the mind.
Thepersons suffering from these disorders are not left to bear theirburden. Most people are not immune to these problems, therefore, thesociety has taken it upon itself to devise remedies to thesedisorders. There is hope for those who happen to experience theseproblems. These remedies are presented in the form of solutions tothe psychological problems.
Theaffected need feel close to their family and the family shouldprovide unrelenting support to those of their members who areidentified to have these psychological disorders (Gawronski,2009).There are may ways to offer remedy to those persons with disorders,namely: therapy, divine intervention, empowerment, learning andtackling discrimination and stigma.
Therapyis an effective way of finding solutions to those with mentaldisorders. It guides them through a process of realization and bidsto restore them to normal functioning. Therapy identifies the mentalcondition and walks the patient through a healing process (Marken& Carey, 2014).
Inother contexts, divide intervention is much appreciated, especiallyamong the Christians. It is believed that the power from a supremebeing is capable of restoring a person’s former mental health. Thesupreme being is God. It is explained that Gods compassion wouldcause Him to heal a wounded soul. It actually works among Christians.Another important remedy is tackling stigma and discrimination. Thosehaving disorders are usually shunned by the rest of the society whoare well. They stigmatize the victims and subject them to seclusion.Educating people about these disorders would help reducediscrimination and stigmatization to aid the victims recovery.
Inconclusion, the problems formed as a result of psychologicalconditions have solutions. Maybe not all of them, but members of thesociety should learn that victims of such disorders need a chance atrecovery or long term understanding.
