Socialisation Constipation Behaviour patterns Develop from ERSI as well as early trauma Stress Stress Stress can be good Stress is frequently old feelings What we felt then and then and then and now we feel overwhelmed Triggers don t have to be unpleasant Sympathetic nervous system Located in the body

6 7 Active listening Giving good attention Putting aside your own concerns Communicating empathy rather than sympathy Giving space to allow the patient to say their piece and not finishing their sentences for them Recapping and summarising words and feelings Cueing in to significant expressions Accepting the release of emotions Recognising your own feelings resulting from your interaction with the patient Not assuming particular events affect everybody in the same way Contact Feelings What we can be is accepting of them as they are now Trauma hunt They haven t opened up!! 8 Emotions in Chinese Medicine CM systematises the emotions into simple form and associates them with specific organs... but human emotions are rarely simple! Complex emotions can affect more than one organ In particular, any emotion can affect the Heart 9

7 Release of emotions Grief - tears Irritations - laughter, hot sweating Nervousness - laughter, hot sweating Anger - raging, tantrums, hot sweating Boredom - yawning Physical stress - yawning and stretching Fear and terror - shaking, trembling, cold sweating 0 Emotions 7

10 Why? Aetiology is often conjecture o We can t know for definite It can tell us when it started o How long it will take to treat If there is useful lifestyle advice we can offer 9 Learning outcomes 0 To know: that the Six External Pathogenic Factors are causes of disease (aetiology) that they can also be called: o Six Climates o Six External Evils o Six Pernicious Influences o Various other similar exotic names Learning outcomes () To know that: Pathogenic factors can be internally generated o There are some similarities/some differences They are always EXCESS (as opposed to deficiency of the body) To be able to name the PFs and know their main characteristics 0

11 Six external pathogenic factors Wind Cold Heat and Fire Damp Summer-heat Dryness Internally generated pathogenic factors Wind Cold Heat and Fire Damp Phlegm Characteristics of Wind Yang in nature o Moving o Associated with Spring o Sudden and changeable Involves upward and outgoing dispersion, affecting the upper part of the body Wind makes things shake and sway Internal Wind - always a result of pathological processes
