Do we have any scientific evidence that OCD is not fake? What other disorders have obsessions?0cami2012-10-26 06:37:04
I learned that, by definition, is a disorder: MedlinePlus MedlinePlus 1. MedlinePlus has to be abnormal 2. It has to be a misfit in clinically MedlinePlus 3. Must be chronic MedlinePlus MedlinePlus This sounds kind of arbitrary to me, and instead of "disorders" are labels that are only useful if we know of successful interventions. Am I correct? Do we have any evidence that there is actually something called OCD, rather than a hypothetical construct that is useful? How to recognize the symptoms can not be another disease, rather than something called OCD? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I wonder why some people accuse me of having OCD. In the books of diagnosis, says OCD must be intrusive or unwanted thoughts / behaviors and the patient has to realize that it is wrong. If I do it because stimulation, rather than anxiety, how is that OCD? I note that the people, and they still insist that I have OCD. They say forget the definition of book and get an idea of ​​mine, that makes no sense, because their OCD accusations sound more "original". Galileo said that the earth revolves around the sun, and found that in a "book" by Copernicus, not the truth is more important than a book or not? If OCD is a disease itself is not verifiable, then it really is psychology? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus An example of where I come from, Einstein and Newton obsessed with science. I'm often the same way. When I was a child, I would focus on one area of ​​science for about four to eight months, and had little interest in anything else, and would not talk about anything else. Moreover, the vocabulary used in normal conversation was often the same from the area of ​​science that happened to be interested at the time. Now that I'm in my twenties, I am very good at hiding and can make the sound of my vocabulary and language normal people. However, I still dive into what interests me, often for months, and it shows through occasionally. I often hear the same songs over and over again, since "mental stimulation". Often, I'm driving to the same place again and again for mental stimulation, no anxiety (and people accuse me of TOC). I do not understand how that is OCD? I do not feel like there's something wrong with my intelligence, because I took an "official" IQ test before and scored 131. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I was not as social as a child well, basically my parents said they did not start talking until he was four. They took me to a doctor and the doctor said there was nothing wrong with me, cognitive or hearing, and that seemed to have the desire to speak. People say I'm a loner. Now I'm in my twenties and I've never been in one at a time. The people insist that I do not want to socialize, while from my point of view I do not know how to socialize and feel people intentionally not allow me to socialize with them (although they will strongly disagree if they learn that from me). Can not you understand? In recent years I've done actually pretty good people skills to regulate surface in structured situations, but beyond that I'm really lacking in social skills / relating to others (perhaps this is part of the reason why people do not 'believe me when I say that I try to socialize but it does not work, no matter how hard I try). As you can imagine, some of these people say I have OCD about myself having ordinary social skills, and I must say that only socialize instead of being extremely analytical about it. I do not understand how this is OCD? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus It seems that some people want to accuse everyone who disagrees with OCD to have for the sake of it? What do others think? Not that I think I have a disorder, but what are other disorders that may seem obsessive compulsive?

Why don't I just get a fake degree?1naiya2012-10-25 03:39:04
I mean this is ridiculous . I'm in school right now and what I'm learning is absolutely redundant and issues that I know . Not to mention that I have looked in the labor market and does not have any work that is in my fields . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I 'm majoring in English and minoring in Psychology . Postsecondary education I was supposed to be a challenge . Are you kidding ? In English we are learning Dostoevsky and I had already read most of his work . In psychology we are learning about Freud Pyscho -sexual development and I know the details , history and most of the teachings of Freud . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Why not just get a fake degree in Economics and teach myself ? I know a substantial amount of monetary policy . Not to mention that I am an astronomical amount of my own money , no student loans to pay for this education call.

If people found out about my depression they wouldnt believe me because I seem so happy at school
Is there evidence of Jesus' resurrection?5moe2012-10-26 17:21:46
If Jesus did not really rise from the dead, why are the disciples of followers fearful, timid of Jesus before his death, to bold evangelists willing to die preaching his resurrection if they really made the whole thing and was still dead? Remember, before Jesus was crucified, the disciples were, for the most part, cowards. Peter denied knowing Jesus up to 3 times before the crucifixion. What event changed the brave cowards? Answer: They must have actually seen the risen Jesus MedlinePlus. MedlinePlus Why did the disciples willing to be tortured and murdered by a known lie? You do not need a degree in human psychology to know that people do not die for a cause they know to be false. People certainly die for false beliefs all the time, but believe they are dying for the truth. If the disciples faked the resurrection, they would know that Christianity is a lie. History records that were tortured and killed for their faith, and no one said, torture "well, well, we did the whole thing"? Why is that? Answer: They must have actually seen the risen Jesus MedlinePlus. MedlinePlus Why would they do the story of the resurrection of Jesus if found to be a fraud? Remember, Jesus said that He would rise after three days. If he was still dead on the fourth day, that means that he was not who he said he was, he was not the Messiah and certainly was not God, after all, so why did the disciples worship a dead man they lied and was exposed as a fraud? Answer: They must have actually seen the risen Jesus MedlinePlus. MedlinePlus What was the reason? The lies and deceptions is usually done by some selfish motive. The preaching of the resurrection of Jesus did not bring wealth, fame, status or popularity. All they would be hated, despised, persecuted, excommunicated, imprisoned, exiled, beheaded, tortured and crucified, as history records, so again, what could be the reason? Just to save face? That certainly is not logical. Nobody is going to go through what the disciples went through just because you're too embarrassed to say "I think we're wrong", so what was his motive? Answer: It is the TRUTH. They must have actually seen the risen Jesus. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Like the disciples, 12 ordinary people achieve such deception? Remember this "deception" would result in thousands of skeptics per day to convert following his scam, and redirect the world, possibly even change your calendars and set your character deception, Jesus as the best known religious figure of all humanity. How could pull something like this without ever exposed, offering a deathbed confession, or even admit that torture was a hoax? Answer: You have to be kidding. They must have actually seen the risen Jesus. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Why thousands of people instantly convert if Jesus did not really rise from the dead? Think about it. History records that thousands and thousands of people were instantly and immediately converting mass to be followers of Jesus, to 3000 in one day. It is recorded that after the crucifixion, Jesus appeared alive in a span of 40 days and the "brothers" 500. (At that time, only men were counted in the total of the crowd, so factoring in women and children, most likely Jesus appeared safely 1500-2000 people older than 40 days). If that many people saw Jesus alive, that would explain how many were becoming as even the most hardened skeptics would multitudes and multitudes of skeptics ancients said "yes, yes, we've all seen too much", but if anyone saw her alive and crowds had only words of the disciples to follow, why convert thousands? Remember, the disciples were preaching to many who do not want to believe that Jesus was the Messiah, what words could talk with hostile crowds to convince them that Jesus really rose from the dead? "Trust us"? That could convince some of the best friends of the disciple, but thousands and thousands of skeptics. So why thousands turn? Answer: The crowds have seen the risen Jesus MedlinePlus. MedlinePlus Why do the disciples look bad in the Gospels? Think about it, if it is to invent a story, do not show something in a positive way? The disciples were painted as sniveling cowards lacking faith. Why? Answer: They must have been telling the truth MedlinePlus. MedlinePlus What was Saul of Tarsus, the persecutor of Christians convert to become the chief apostle Paul, the main follower of Jesus if he was not really an encounter with a resurrected Jesus? Logically, if Jesus did not really rise from the dead, Saul simply bask in his victory, revealing Jesus as a fraud who could not conquer death, after all, what event could have done to make? Answer: You have actually encountered the risen Jesus as recorded.
Atheists, Isn't this evidence of higher beings and god?5Jahnay2012-10-23 06:08:02
Helen Schucman was an American psychologist and clinical research in New York. She was a professor of medical psychology at Columbia University of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York Cityfrom 1958 until his retirement in 1976. . While at Columbia University, Schucman worked with William "Bill" Thetford, whom he met for the first time in early 1958. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Shucman heard a voice speaking to her. For three months, Helen experienced a series of dreams and psychic experiences. Twice he had visions of a great book and told me, or was aware that it was somehow "their" book. She began having mental conversations with a voice. She will ask you questions about your life, and Bill, and write down the answers, even though the whole process was bothering her. Dreams and visions terrified her, being a psychologist, he feared for his own sanity. She "describes" the book "A Course in Miracles" which received through this process claireaudient dictation. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Finally one day (October 21, 1965), Helen's "voice", said, "This is a course in miracles. Please take notes" She wrote about a page of notes before realizing that this is not was going to be short. The voice was asking for a long-term commitment. When the voice asked, "Why me?'m Not even religious," the answer was: "You are an excellent choice, and for a very simple reason. You will." MedlinePlus She began to talk to Bill about everything that was happening. For the next seven years, with some interruptions, met almost every morning. Helen read the notes of his shorthand notebooks, Bill wrote to them, they would argue. These were the two respected psychologists. Neither dared to tell anyone about what they were doing, they were afraid of being considered unstable and may lose their jobs MedlinePlus. MedlinePlus Since it became available for sale in 1976, more than 2 million copies of A Course in Miracles have been sold worldwide and the text has been translated into sixteen languages. A Course in Miracles (ACIM) is widely distributed worldwide, which is the basis of a number of organized groups. The teachings of A Course in Miracles have been supported by commentators and authors like Eckhart Tolle. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus A Course in Miracles makes a fundamental distinction between the real and the unreal, between knowledge and perception. Knowledge is truth, under one law, the law of love or God. Truth is unalterable, eternal and unambiguous. Can not be recognized, but you can not change. It applies to everything that God created, and only what He created is real. It is beyond learning because it is beyond time and process. No front, without beginning or end. It just is. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Sin is defined as "lack of love". Since love is all there is, sin is a mistake to be corrected, rather than an evil to be punished. Our sense of inadequacy, weakness and incompletion comes from the strong investment in the "scarcity principle" that governs the world of illusions. From that standpoint, we seek in others what we feel is wanting in ourselves. "Love" another in order to obtain something of ourselves. That, indeed, is what passes for love in the world of dreams. There can be no greater mistake than that, for love is incapable of asking for anything.
Is there evidence to support Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?1Jquez2012-10-16 23:17:04
For my review of psychology that I'm learning about OCD and shows how the economy and CBT can be used to treat it. I found studies that support and token economy , but I can not find any for CBT . It need not be specifically for OCD , and not even have to have a lot of detail. It just has to have the name and date of the researchers , as well as the results . I would be very grateful for all the evidence you can find!
