給創傷性事件幸存者的幾點自我心理照顧小貼士

給創傷性事件幸存者的幾點自我心理照顧小貼士 -事件過後,如何面對個人生活,家庭生活,經濟上的變化 理解災難性事件的注意事項 沒有一個目睹或經歷災難的人可以毫髮無損 對自己或家人的安危感到不安是非常正常的反應 對於災難等異常事件,深切的憂傷,悲痛以及憤怒都是正常的反應 要意識到我們的各種情緒在幫助我們從創傷性事件中恢復 關注自己的長處和能力可以幫助我們好轉 接受來自於社區服務等各種資源的幫助有利於我們的健康 理解我們每個人都有不同的需求,也有著不同的應對方式。 對造成痛苦的人有過激的情緒是正常的,但無端的謾罵和過激的行為並不會帶來任何實質上好的結果。 成人需要壓力管理上的幫助的幾點信號 無法表達自己的想法 睡眠困難 對保持身心平衡感到困難 易怒 酒精或者藥物的攝取量增加 注意力的持久度受限 工作表現欠佳 頭痛/胃部不適 視覺/聽覺明顯受到干擾 疑似感冒或流感的身體症狀 感到意識模糊或者混亂 無法集中精神 不願離開家 感到抑鬱,悲傷 感到絕望 情緒波動較大 容易哭泣 一直籠罩在罪惡感和自我懷疑中 對人群,陌生人或者獨處感到恐懼 減緩壓力的幾種方法 和他人交流自己的憤怒,悲傷等感受並非易事,但是是減緩壓力的有效手段 不要試圖將災難性事件的責任攬到自己身上,也不要因為無法直接參與救工作而感到心煩 盡力維持自己現有的生活模式(比如,飲食習慣,休息習慣,體育鍛鍊,放鬆活動,冥想等)或努力調整以適應現有狀況,以便一步一步促進個人身體和情緒上的恢復。您和您的家人都會這種有利於健康的想法中受益。 保持如常的個人生活和家庭生活,避免來自於自己或者家庭的苛刻的責任需求。 花時間和朋友,家人在一起 通過參與紀念活動,儀式或者象徵性活動來抒發自己的情感 合理利用並參加已有的家人,朋友或者教堂的援助小組 確立一個家庭緊急情況應對計劃。了解在自己力所能及的範圍內有很多事情可以做。 什麼時候應該去外界尋求幫助? 如果自我心理照顧的方法對您來說沒有太大的幫助,或者您意識到您正在使用藥物或者酒精來應對現狀,我們建議您根據您的壓力反應積極尋求外界或者專業人士的幫助。 來源:U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services…
