Psychosocial Development and Dreams – Prevent Sociopathic Behavior

Through dream analysis we can precisely follow the development of our personality and understand the unconscious mind. Dreams reflect our psychological content and our behavioral health. They are also a source of objective information related to any important matter in our lives, especially concerning the person we love.

Through dream therapy we can help children, adolescents, and adults develop the positive characteristics of their personality, while eliminating the negative ones. Our dreams are produced by the unconscious mind that knows everything about us and our lives, and works like a natural doctor. It sends us protective messages and guidance in all dream images and scenes. We only have to learn the symbolic dream language in order to understand the unconscious logic, and the meaning of dreams.

Now that I simplified the complicated method of dream interpretation discovered by the psychiatrist Carl Jung, everyone can reap the benefits of this knowledge. We can now very easily follow everyone’s psychosocial development through dream translation, by correcting behavioral abnormalities that cause sociopathic behavior.

The anti-social or sociopathic personality disorder is a result of the invasion of the anti-conscience, (the wild side of the human conscience) into the human side of our conscience. This is easily verified in a dream analysis, as we find dream symbols that reflect the permanent influence of the anti-conscience in our behavior.

The sociopathic behavior is characterized by selfishness, cruelty, lack of respect for the others, irresponsibility, and manipulation. Sociopathic people never feel ashamed or guilty, being totally indifferent to justice. They don’t have friends; they are rude, unfair and sneaky. They live clearly dominated by the anti-conscience, (the primitive and violent side of their conscience), which destroyed the human side of their conscience. This is why they have no human sensitivity.

Dream therapy, according to the scientific method of dream interpretation, provides the only guaranteed treatment to prevent or eliminate sociopathic tendencies. Our dreams reflect our psychological development and behavioral health, helping us eliminate all the absurd tendencies that distort our behavior when we are under the influence of the anti-conscience.

Our dreams also give us objective information about the world where we are and our social environment. They protect our mental health from serious deceptions that could cause mental illnesses by showing us how we can develop our intelligence. We learn how to avoid what could lead us to absurdity and despair. We also learn how to distinguish what is worthwhile in our personality and must be developed.

In order to prevent a sociopathic disorder we must respect the importance of dreams and follow the unconscious guidance. Sociopathic behavior generates grave mental illnesses and unbearable life situations. It is responsible for the various social conflicts, crimes and terrorist attempts that characterize our world.

We must prevent it through regular dream analysis. This is how our psychosocial development won’t be damaged by the intervention of violent animal tendencies and their tragic consequences. We will instead, develop our positive capacities, becoming calm, balanced, and sensitive.

Maintaining Mental Stability – Behavioral Health and Happiness

Charles Darwin discovered that we are basically primates. However, scientific discoveries carried on in the end of the twentieth century prove that the truth about the human nature is more complex than what he had believed.

The biologist and behaviorist Konrad Lorenz and other biologists discovered that we are basically programmed to react in a certain way. All wild animals are programmed to have certain specific reactions to various stimuli from their environment that indicate danger, that help them find food, and many other things. This means that many of the reactions that appear in our behavior are not the result of our own decisions, but the result of the existence of behavioral programs that pre-define our reactions, depending on the various stimuli of our environment that put them into action.

Lorenz related the findings of many biologists to his own findings concerning human and animal behavior. His remarkable research should have enlightened humanity. However, the conclusions he made were not appreciated by our hypocritical world leaders. This is why his discoveries didn’t change the global mindset, even though he was honored with the Noble Prize in 1974.

He discovered that there are so many hard-wired responses in human behavior, that we cannot talk about ‘human freedom’. In other words, if we are already programmed to react like animals in so many ways, we don’t have the freedom to make our own decisions and do what we really want to. We don’t control our behavior as we believe we do.

I related Konrad Lorenz’s discoveries to Carl Jung’s discoveries about the meaning of dreams. Then, I continued Jung’s research through dream interpretation, discovering the wild side of our conscience (anti-conscience) that he could not see. The anti-conscience is our primitive conscience that didn’t evolve like our human side. It is a very violent primate, with the difference that it can think.

The existence of such primitive content in the biggest part of our brain means that we are basically cavemen who didn’t evolve enough yet. This is why so many behavioral programs determine our behavior.

The powerful anti-conscience generates mental illnesses and mental disorders within our human conscience until it manages to destroy it. Then, it completely controls our behavior, leading us to terror and despair.

If we want to maintain our mental stability and behave in a way that will help us find happiness in life, we must eliminate the absurd thoughts generated by our anti-conscience. We must also eliminate the negative behavior imposed by its violent nature.

The unconscious mind that produces our dreams works like a doctor because we need constant protection and guidance. We must follow the unconscious psychotherapy in order to transform the anti-conscience into positive content before it manages to destroy our humanity. Only then will we acquire true behavioral health and mental stability. Thus, only then will we find real peace and happiness in life.

Economic Recovery and Healthcare Reform – Opportunities For Mental Health and Addictions

2009 is a critical year. Promised economic recovery and healthcare reform legislation are opportunities for meaningful financial commitments to mental health and addictions services and mental healthcare organizations are offering a practical actionable agenda:

– The integration of primary care services in behavioral health settings: The Healthcare Collaborative Project brings together behavioral health and primary care organizations offering a bi-directional approach for care. The need for behavioral health services in primary care is widely accepted. But the integration of primary care services in behavioral health settings remains controversial despite the fact that individuals with serious mental illness appear to have the worst mortality rates in the public health system. Therefore, mental healthcare organizations are actively pursuing single points of accountability to enhance continuity of care for this underserved population.

– Cost-based-plus financing that supports service excellence: People want and deserve quality services but quality services depend on skilled staff. Low salaries have created – and are perpetuating – a recruitment, retention, and quality crisis for behavioral healthcare. We need a workforce of skilled staff delivering nationally recognized practices within organizations that live by the rule “If you don’t measure it, you can’t improve it.”For mental healthcare organizations, healthcare reform is an opportunity to bring “parity” to public mental health services by ending the second class status of community mental health and addiction providers in America’s safety net.

– Federal mental health funding stream dedicated to mental health and integrated treatment services for the uninsured: The uninsured have exceptionally high rates of untreated mental illnesses with co-occurring addiction disorders and there is no safety net. State plans to cover the uninsured have all but disappeared and federal universal coverage plans may well be incremental. We have large numbers of individuals with treatable mental illnesses and addictions in our overburdened emergency rooms, in jails, and on the streets with no access to services that can engage them, treat them and return them to work. We must stop denying our economy productive taxpayers and wasting human lives.

– Eligibility for social security disability for people with addiction disorders: Addiction has come a long way from the days when it was perceived as merely a failure of will. Today, there is growing public awareness and acceptance of addiction as a chronic, relapsing condition that requires continual monitoring and management, as do other chronic illnesses like diabetes, asthma, and hypertension and yes, mental illness. If we accept addiction as a chronic illness then we must advocate that people with addiction disorders be eligible for disability support.

– Funds to support investments by behavioral healthcare organizations in information technology: We talk about information technology and service transparency, but behavioral healthcare organizations that move forward to automate their clinical systems get no support, funding, or technical assistance. We and those we serve cannot continue to be marginalized. Healthcare reform and economic recovery will depend upon the expansion of information technologies and behavioral health providers must be included.

– Expansion of research-based education and prevention practices: There are mental health and addiction prevention and education programs that work. These include research-based prevention initiatives that reduce the risk of childhood serious emotional disturbance by treating maternal depression, the Nurse-Family Partnership Program that has an array of consistent positive effects across multiple trials, and Mental Health First Aid – an evidence-based mental health literacy program. Now we must adequately fund and support the spread of these interventions to communities across the country.

Behavioral Abnormalities Caused by Your Self-Defensive Mechanism

The translation of the meaning of dreams according to the scientific method of dream interpretation will help you understand the influence of the wild side of your conscience (anti-conscience) into the human side of your conscience. You will learn what determines your behavior and how to acquire sound mental health.

For example, dreams about other people give you information about your own behavior. Each person who appears in your dream is a part of your personality that has the same characteristics of the people who appear in the dream. Therefore, if you’ll have a dream about a person who has the tendency to distort the truth and present the facts according to their personal opinion, this means that a certain part of your personality imitates this person’s attitude.

Now, if the part of your personality who distorts the truth is a policeman in a dream, this means that this part of your personality is responsible for your self-defensive mechanism.

Putting everything together: Your self-defense is controlled by a component of your personality that has the tendency to lie and distort the truth.

When you’ll relate this information to your life biography (since you are the dreamer) you will understand that you have this self-defensive reaction because you had a traumatic childhood. You always defend yourself with a component of your personality that presents the truth according to your desires and not as it really is.

This attitude reflects abnormal behavior. Your abnormal behavior denounces the existence of a behavioral disorder. In other words, your anti-conscience managed to generate a mental illness within your human conscience because you had a trauma when you were a child.

You always have a self-defensive reaction given by a component of your personality that is not conscious, but belongs to your wild conscience. You adopt this behavior in order to protect yourself from the attacks of the world, and from your own thoughts. However, this reaction is based on absurd criteria.

Your self-defensive reaction is based on the distortion of the truth. It is the result of a traumatic experience. It is not a conscious and positive reaction before what is bad.

The unconscious mind analyzes your behavior in order to show you why you are making mistakes, and how you can stop doing what has a negative effect on your personality and life.

A mental illness is caused by the invasion of the absurdity of your anti-conscience into the human side of your conscience. It begins with a trauma and the acceptance of the absurd ideas of your wild side, which pretends to give you solutions to your problems.

All behavioral disorders reflect the control of your anti-conscience, which takes the place of your ego. It invades your conscience with its absurd ideas. Then, it gradually destroys your capacity to think logically. It also distorts your behavior. The unconscious mind gives you many explanations and lessons in the dream images in order to eliminate the negative influence of your anti-conscience.

Without understanding what causes absurd reactions and what kind of mistakes you make for being influenced by the absurdity of your anti-conscience, you cannot stop being a victim of your wild nature. Only after understanding what is negative and must be eliminated, will you acquire permanent mental stability and perfect behavioral health.

How State Budget Cuts Impact Continuity of Mental Health Care

Continuity of care between the inpatient and outpatient settings continues to be a challenge. Current hospital payments assume that hospitals are actively involved through discharge and the transition to outpatient settings and advocating for payments for outpatient providers to assist in this process is viewed as duplicative. This undermines mental health care providers’ ability to smoothly transition clients between service settings.

Meeting the credentialing requirements for program services and mental health professionals has posed new challenges. Community behavioral health organizations employ professionals that may not meet private insurers’ credentialing standards (for example, 3 years of post-licensure experience). Community providers have addressed this through contractual arrangements in which quality assurance and supervision requirements substitute for these credentialing standards. Services are billed under a supervisory protocol in which the supervising professional’s national provider identifier is used.

Additionally, some programs offer services that rely on a combination of funding sources such as county, state, and private insurers. In these situations, counties sometimes want to limit private insurance clients’ access to these programs because a portion of the overall program is covered by the county.

Impact of State Budget Cuts on Mental Health Care –

In a dramatic turnabout that may foreshadow dilemmas faced by other states, the governor of Minnesota vetoed funding for the state’s mental healthcare program. The legislature would have extended the program for several months, as a compromise was negotiated to retain elements of coverage for the state’s mental health population – a hospital uncompensated care fund, medication/pharmacy, and “coordinated care delivery systems.” In the system, an accountable hospital-centered program paid a fixed amount to cover about 40% of the state’s mental illness population who elected to participate. As there is no reimbursement for outpatient clinic and all non-hospital services, providers and consumers now are scrambling to seek disability determination or enroll in Medicare type coverage after the six month state mental illness coverage enrollment period ends.

While these cuts are only effective as of June 1, 2010, it is expected that they will result in increases to the uncompensated care burden on hospitals and community safety net providers.

How Do We Minimize The Impact of Budget Cuts on Mental Health Care?

Many not-for-profit membership organizations representing community mental health and other service provider agencies throughout Minnesota have been working in coalition with national mental health groups on advocacy related to the state’s mental health program changes. Initially, advocacy efforts were focused on encouraging the state legislature to vote in support of expanding the state Medicaid program early to receive additional federal funding (as provided for in the national healthcare reform bill). Unfortunately, this proved to be politically untenable in the immediate future; however, a measure was passed to allow the governor to use executive authority to expand Medicaid coverage for mental illness patients.

While being actively involved in this advocacy process is vitally important to the community behavioral health system, national mental health advocacy medicaid organizations and their members are also evaluating ways in which they can optimize their business practices to meet this changing budgetary reality. Among other strategies, community behavioral health providers are working to develop partnerships with community hospitals to reduce the number of avoidable emergency department admissions and ease the transition from the inpatient to outpatient settings, supporting clients through the disability determinations process so they may become eligible for Medicaid as quickly as possible, and raising funds that will help to cover the cost sharing requirements for state sponsored mental health care and the enrolled clients that are unable to pay.

Through this two-pronged approach that includes both advocacy and pragmatic business considerations, it is hoped that the community behavioral health system will be able to develop new cost-effective ways of delivering services that will be well-positioned to withstand funding changes while taking advantage of new opportunities made available through national and state health care reform initiatives.
