Forskning på menneskets resiliens


Forståelsen av hvordan mennesket fungerer, er under massiv forandring. En årrekke av forskning peker mot at alle mennesker har en medfødt resiliens og psykisk helse.

Dette paradigmeskifte ovenfor vår psykologi og resiliens, skaper et behov for bredere kjennskap til denne oppdagelsen. Den snur opp ned på mange av de vanligste oppfatningene rundt psykisk helse. Det avdekkes en logikk bak hvordan menneskets sinn fungerer og ikke fungerer.

Den nye forståelsen av resiliens betyr:

  • Å være i stand til å komme over traumer raskere

  • Å være i stand til å ikke ta ting personlig

  • Å ha flere perspektiver på opplevelsene

Nedenfor er noen forskningsrapporter som tydelig fremlegger at vi har drastisk undervurdert menneskets resiliens. Et viktig skritt innen psykisk helsevern vil være å se i en mer positiv og fruktbar retning, enn hva den medisinske modellen gir rom for i dag.


Redefinering av resiliens (paradigme skifte)

Ingen og ingenting, hverken fortid, omstendighet eller fremtid kan putte en følelse eller opplevelse inn i oss. Dvs. ingenting kan psykologisk påvirke oss, annet enn den kreative kraften av tanke i øyeblikket.

Slik er logikken til det psykologiske systemet utformet. Derfor er vi alltid psykologisk trygge, frie og resiliente enten vi er klar over det eller ikke, enten vi føler det eller ikke.

Det betyr at selv om vi føler oss nedslått og utbrent, så vil medfødt resiliens sørge for at vi reiser oss igjen og nye opplevelser oppstår. Vi har et psykologisk immunforsvar som tar vare på oss.

An Innate Resiliency Paradigm for School Psychology

This paper presents findings regarding the role of youth's moment to moment thinking and state of mind in determining perception. These findings, along with discoveries about innate resiliency and an understanding of the underlying principles that describe how thoughts become perception, have demonstrated efficacy in empowering youth to regain their natural well being, self motivation, and healthy thinking. This paradigm, come to be known as Health Realization shows significant promise as an antidote to alienation and emotional disorders, and in fact brings to light underlying principles that determine how perception is formed and to what extent it is clouded by past experiences as opposed to the ability of any person to function in a clearer, wiser, and more objective, insightful state of mind. The logical implications of youth focused interventions are presented along with independently conducted evaluation and research data from multiple clinical and school based programs.

Natural Resilience and innate Mental Health – American Psychologist April 2005

Comments on George Bonanno's article entitled Loss, trauma, and human resilience: Have we underestimated the human capacity to thrive after extremely aversive events? (see record 2004-10043-003). The author notes that Bonanno's article on loss, trauma, and resilience represents another important step toward pointing psychology in a more positive and fruitful direction. Bonanno was right; psychologists have dramatically underestimated the human capacity to thrive after extremely aversive events. More important, psychologists have also failed to realize that the human capacity for resilience, highlighted by Bonanno, is natural and normal, part and parcel of the innate health built into all human beings. Bonanno concluded from his review of the research on grieving and posttraumatic stress disorder that resilience to interpersonal loss and traumatic events is common and represents healthy adjustment. This conclusion points to the existence of an innate human psychological immune capacity. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)

Principles based correctional counseling - Teaching Health vs Treating Illness

Principle-based correctional counseling (PBCC) is based on the assumption that all offenders have innate mental health. Thus, the primary goal of PBCC is to teach offenders how to rekindle and experience their natural capacity for psy- chological well-being. PBCC accomplishes this by teaching offenders: (a) how the principles of Mind, Thought, and Consciousness create their experience from the inside-out, and (b) how to use their thinking agency in accord with its natural design. According to PBCC, as offenders understand these principles and realize how to use thought in their best interest, their overall psychological functioning improves. This paper describes the principles and assumptions behind PBCC and compares this paradigm to other contemporary correctional counseling models on several key dimensions. Finally, it summarizes research fi ndings supporting the effectiveness of PBCC-based interventions with adolescent and adult offenders. Since the late 1970s, a completely different paradigm for un- derstanding and addressing delinquency and criminality has been quietly spreading through the helping professions. Commonly known as Mind, Thought, Consciousness/Innate Health, this model emerged from the insights of Sidney Banks (1983; 1989; 1998; 2001), who realized that a deeper understanding of deviant behavior could be achieved by looking beyond the realm of form in which psychology had typically restricted its domain of inquiry. Banks asserted that there were principles operating to create form, and offered the time- honored concepts of Mind, Thought, and Consciousness to describe these processes. The initial research on these principles was carried out at the University of Oregon by psychologists, Roger Mills and George Pransky, through a five-year (1974-1979) NIMH-sponsored
