Understanding the Role of Core Beliefs in Attachment and Trauma

Uncategorized Jun 28, 2024

Our core beliefs are the deeply ingrained ideas we hold about ourselves, others, and the world around us. These beliefs shape our perceptions, influence our behaviours, and play a crucial role in how we form and maintain relationships. When it comes to attachment and trauma, core beliefs can either support healthy relational patterns or contribute to ongoing emotional and psychological challenges.

Core beliefs begin to form in early childhood, influenced by our interactions with caregivers, our experiences, and the messages we receive from our environment. These beliefs are often reinforced over time and become the lens through which we view the world. Positive experiences and secure attachments typically lead to healthy core beliefs, such as "I am worthy of love" or "People can be trusted." Conversely, negative experiences and insecure attachments can result in harmful core beliefs, like "I am unlovable" or "The world is unsafe."

Rethinking Drug Legislation: A Call for a Trauma-Informed Approach

Uncategorized Mar 28, 2024

Are we seeing the desired outcomes from our current drug legislation? The evidence suggests otherwise.

With drug-related deaths on the rise and the emergence of increasingly potent substances like Nitazenes, it's evident that our approach is falling short.

I'm increasingly drawn to the Iron Law of Prohibition, which posits that intensified law enforcement often leads to the proliferation of more potent drugs due to heightened risks in transportation and manufacturing.

Perhaps it's time to adopt a genuine trauma-informed harm reduction/body autonomy approach to drug use. By prioritising harm reduction strategies and respecting individual autonomy, we could potentially curb the rising death toll and provide much-needed support to those struggling with addiction.

It's clear that the status quo isn't delivering the results we need. It's time for a new approach.

Navigating the Rise of Synthetic Opioids in the UK Illicit Drug Market
