Metapsychology Online Reviews

As you will note from the title, this book is designed for psychologists and the like for use with their clients, rather than beginners who might be interested in Thomas Bowlby or babies sequestrated in hospital wards away from mum.

Those that cannot tend to be those whose maternal history includes anxiety on separation, and thus do not venture far from the grazing parent, until placed with a mother with no such history, where they recover their equanimity and even go on to achieve maternal-herd leadership.

In our new era, with the focus on the need for evidence based practice in psychology and medicine, definitions of psychopathology based on theories of the unconscious fall foul of one of the salient demands of empirical science: the concept of the 'unconscious' remains an untestable hypothesis, one which is not subject to empirical investigation and therefore there is the capacity to potentially be refuted by such an investigation.

The efficacy approach thus is said to possess strong internal validity, as opposed to the external validity provide by Brisch's approach, which generalizes better to therapy as it is normally practiced outside of the laboratory, providing the ecological representativeness alleged by Brisch's choice of a wide variety of clients for his illustrations.

Treating the parents and adolescents, within the family should also be considered necessary, given attachment is not a one-way connection, but a patterned bilateral connectedness, and within a few lines, the author refers to the vital word 'reciprocal'.

Brisch, in the above review, goes on even further, to flesh out his typology with classifications such as 'no signs of attachment behavior', to 'undifferentiated attachment behavior', 'exaggerated attachment behavior', 'inhibited attachment behavior', 'aggressive attachment behavior', 'attachment behavior with role reversal', and finally psychosomatic symptoms.

In this way, parents who form secure attachments, or create those environments, proceed with a state of mind that values attachment in the first place, an ability to meet attachment needs in a timely, sensitive and consistent way, a capacity for stress regulation and coregulation, and an ability to repair.

insecurity leads to anxiety, and an insecure-ambivalent parent may be dismissive and preoccupied, such a child may have an approach-avoidant, push-pull mix of approaches to relationships, and so on through the typology, producing the author's preferred approach, which to identify patterns rather than categories, such as the DSM-V's.

In ameliorating these conditions, allowing for more optimal emotional behaviour and attachment, promoting these as per the title, adult relationships that begin to coregulate rather than fail each other, are a reasonable early target, and so child-parent and preschool parent therapies have been shown to have merit, amongst others discussed here.

This would include dysfunction of the underpinning working memory, especially auditory working memory, a focus on detail rather than the bigger picture, difficulty in generalizing from one situation to another, impulsivity of response and poor regulation of emotion and behaviour, classifying new and challenging information and finally difficult in effortful attentional focus.

The next chapter does the same for parents, only 30-odd pages though, transferring affect into empathy, dealing with transference issues, the interfering effects of relatives into the family structure and function, and includes techniques such as showing affection directly via palm and cheek contact.

Only 20 pages follow for adolescents, often for mood and behavioural issues, and a section deals with the problems evoked by the interaction of teens and society, again with some focus on touch, and of course safety, and intimacy vs autonomy and the development of a sense of theory of mind.

Overall this book is full of helpful approaches and does deliver in a seamless and simple way, making it valuable to those seeking to understand this area of endeavour, and combined with Brisch's book from earlier years, will manage a spectrum of attachment dysfunction in their practice.

The Paradox of Empathetic Transference in Medicine: Empathic Technology vs. Algorithmic Sympathy

Throughout generations, he has even labeled the eras by its corresponding technological achievements, Such as Renaissance technological insurgency from 1340 to 1470 AD to mechanization in the late 1800s to the linking of commercial networks and enterprises by the 1990s.

For centuries, Human being has perpetually struggled with separating dreams from reality as he oftentimes has clattered between humanizing the fake and demoralizing the technology through the projection of his vision on cinematic art characterized as the perfect humane partner or an ultimate killing machine.

Not long ago, I came across this interesting piece titled: “Empathetic technology’: Can devices know what you’re feeling?” (Published in medical news today) The narration was about bringing the unrealistic to existence by enabling the robot to sense humankind’s emotional state utilizing machine learning, sensors and algorithms and retort by mean appropriate empathy.

Let’s start out with the history of robots According to current major dictionaries, a robot is nothing but a programmed, multi-functional operator designed to move material, parts, tools, or specialized devices through programmed motions for the execution of tasks.

He characterized the robots in his short stories as “helpful servants of man” and viewed robots as “a better, cleaner race.” Asimov proposed three “Laws of Robotics” that his robotic predecessors, as well as science fiction (sci-fi) robotic characters of other stories, followed.

When unable he is inclined to seek the ultimate superpower and by taking it one step farther, he even finds ways to preserve his competitive edge to be able to dominate the mission he has started from birth.

As pointed earlier typically sourced via sensors like a smart speaker as a spoken language, written as part of social media content, heat through temperature sensors or visual imagery.

few engineering experts have claimed to have been able to thread the fine line between realism and illusion, by utilizing deep learning technology to detect ones mental and bodily states before we as human are able to detect.

In other words, this is accomplished through a set of numerical equations that can specify, discover and predict individuals’ state of mind and psyche from precise and subtle bodily fluctuations detected by the virtue of sensitive sensors, even before we can subjectively comprehend.

OR are we practically forming a mirror image of the person by using of computer software via extracting, transforming and loading (ETL) and recording of physical activities, then reflect it back by pinpointing those subjects likes and dislikes?

prefer to use the term “Shadow learning” instead of “empathic technology” because the most technical way to describe what I presume postponement of the concept of “parenting” beyond someone’s’ childhood into the adult life.

In contrast, The Empathic technology is learned response based on clear factors and experience and knowledge of a person no matter how precise and vast, it cannot suffice as the ground of determining how to respond to an individual’s emotions, providing empathy.

External factors, ethics, culture, genetics, community, with random collaboration of events at a specific point of time, every single component carries within itself an unlimited sub-options that would be unethical to shine it back on the human by the technology, unless we are advanced enough to implant the human brain on a robot or transpose a technology on man, which I speculate the latter may be easier to meet soon than the former.

Simulating biological response as the spurious version of zealous state may be the span between the physical expression of underlying emotional upheaval but ne’er symbolizes the swinging doorway between the two if we intend to keep the external variables within the loop of the human landscape and his defining innovations.

Doubtless harnessing machine learning technology is by far one of the most superscript levels concurred by the collective try of the human being through the passage of the history, and inherent aptitude that will go on within the hands of future generations to come.

This is an invaluable trait which is nonexistent to the humanoid, called “Personalized Medicine” which by itself has always meant to serve as the primary prerequisite for laying the groundwork for a medical service that goes beyond socioeconomic and geographic boundaries thence, Healthcare without borders.
