Forced neuroses, OCD & the Yager Therapy®
Forced neuroses? Compulsory neurosis is an obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD / OCD). People can suffer from compulsive thoughts (obsessions) and / or compulsive acts (compulsions). Both forms often occur together and can take on mild or severe forms. By performing certain actions, people try to prevent something bad from happening. So there is an anxiety disorder. People with coercion often avoid situations that provoke compulsive thoughts or compulsive actions.
With a compulsive neurosis, the idea of having to do something predominates. Either way, the action must and will be performed. So a compulsor imposes something on himself. For example, it may be that a co-worker has to check several times whether a door is closed. Compulsory neuroses occur in several types. People can suffer from a single form but also from multiple forms at the same time. For example, a person may suffer from control and recurrence. Types of compulsive disorders are: control compulsion, repeat compulsion, fear of sting, counting compulsion, collecting compulsion and washing compulsion.
How does a compulsive neurosis arise?
In some families, coercion is more common. It is therefore possible that in certain families there is more aptitude for compulsive neuroses. Thus, a predisposition to compulsive neurosis is determined to a greater or lesser extent by heredity. Studies have not been able to show that forced neuroses are caused by a gene. No gene has been found that causes compulsive neurosis.
A compulsive neurosis can be the result of an emotional and radical event. When traumatic events are not properly processed, a compulsive neurosis can occur. Just like with a depression often a combination of personal characteristics, physical causes and previous events is a reason for the development of a compulsive neurosis.
Treatment of a compulsive disorder
Treating a compulsive neurosis usually consists of therapy (psychotherapy / behavioral therapy) or therapy in combination with medication to cure the condition more quickly. Treatment often consists of exposure, a treatment method in which a patient is exposed to situations that lead to coercion. By systematically working out a list in which no compulsive actions may be performed, the compulsion will slowly disappear.
Treatment OCD with the Yager Therapy®
Treating an obsessive compulsive disorder with the Yager Therapy® can be a good alternative to regular treatment methods but can also be used complementarily. With the Yager Therapy® it is assumed that an event (or several events) from the past (conditioning) are, to a large extent, partly responsible for the development of a compulsive disorder. All events are recorded in parts that are housed in our subconscious mind. By adapting and reconditioning these parts, conditioned responses (how you react to past events) will no longer translate into compulsive neuroses (compulsive thoughts or compulsive actions).
