I believe we have all heard of the term psychological neuroticism, but what is it? Health experts point out that psychological neuroticism is also called heart neuroticism, which means that psychological neuroticism is a neuroticism on the psychological level. When there is a psychological neurosis, how should it be treated? The health experts are here to give you a brief introduction today. If you are interested, please take a look.
Causes of psychological neuroticism
Psychological neuroticism has a genetic tendency.
2. Unscientific education
For example, the parents sternly require children to wash their hands often and not to dirty their clothes.
Psychological cleanliness may appear because of mental shock, such as being often called dirty and unclean by others as a child, and so on, and then psychological cleanliness will appear after growing up.
Psychological cleanliness treatment:
The treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder is generally based on several forms of treatment, psychotherapy, medication, physical therapy, and recently there has been a study of surgical treatment, but I am skeptical of this surgical treatment, there is no organic lesion of obsessive-compulsive disorder, for the surgical treatment of the brain, must be careful, if there is no scientific If there is no scientific basis and case support, it is better not to choose this type of treatment.
OCD does not affect the body, but it can affect our lives, our mental activities, psychological stress, etc. The core symptoms of OCD are compulsions and counter-compulsions, so a good treatment is psychotherapy to adjust the psychological struggle of compulsions and counter-compulsions.
Because psychotherapy is effective for OCD, we focus on psychotherapy. For psychotherapy of OCD, the main treatments are behavioral therapy, cognitive therapy, psychoanalysis, and so on. Among behavioral therapies, systematic desensitization and shock therapy are the more common forms of treatment. The so-called systematic desensitization method (desensitization method) is a systematic procedure that uses the principle of “confrontation” to gradually allow patients to gradually reduce their allergic emotional or behavioral reactions.
The principle of shock therapy is exactly the opposite of desensitization therapy, which is to suddenly expose the patient to something or someone or something he or she fears, or even to contact with these things.
This “shock” stimulus will cause a violent impact on the patient, so that the patient can not produce the usual “fear” of the psychological reaction, when tolerated for a short period of tension, will no longer be afraid.
For example, if a person suffering from compulsive washing is suddenly made dirty, he will no longer worry about the slightest dirt and may remove the fear of dirt. However, since this stimulus is faced suddenly, some patients will not be able to bear it, and instead they will have extreme panic. Therefore, panchakarma therapy should pay special attention when choosing the target of treatment, and at the same time, the patient should be prepared for it.
For the treatment of psychological disorders, it is generally necessary to target the treatment after the cause, and the same is true for OCD. Many patients’ OCD is related to past misfortunes and the psychological trauma they had suffered. By letting out the pain, fear, and tension inside to the fullest, the fear is also reduced and the tension is relieved.
In addition to these two main behavioral therapies OCD patients also need to cooperate with their doctors to make some adjustments to their own personalities and lives.
1, cognitive adjustment, OCD is not terrible
The essence of OCD is the psychological battle between the two, and the treatment of OCD is to overcome the fear with personal will, that is, the so-called “know yourself and know your enemy, a hundred battles will not be lost”. The key to treatment is to have a correct understanding of OCD. Many patients have suspicion and tension about OCD symptoms, which increases the psychological burden and aggravates OCD at the same time.
Therefore, patients should first understand the knowledge about OCD, including the causes, nature, results and various measures of treatment, so that they will eliminate concerns, build confidence in overcoming OCD, and proactively cooperate with treatment.
2,Personality adjustment, think in a different way
The symptoms of OCD patients are only a superficial phenomenon, what really works is their obsessive personality, i.e. bad personality and way of thinking. Therefore, OCD patients should make a conscious effort to overcome capricious, impatient, aggressive personality, change the overly stereotypical, overly serious approach to things, do not be too rigid, think in a different way, things will often have an unexpected turnaround. At the same time to build confidence, courage and optimism in the face of setbacks.
This compulsive notion comes from a lack of confidence in one’s ability to take exams. If one has self-confidence, why should one care about the competition of others? Therefore, the treatment of OCD needs to help them change their original bad personality, build up their self-confidence, improve their psychological quality, and cultivate their good personality of optimism, independence, open-mindedness and self-confidence.
3, do not be a perfectionist, believe that the effort is good
The world does not exist perfect people and things, as long as the effort, for their own good. OCD patients should admit and accept that they have the possibility of making mistakes, and should not be too harsh on life and learning, the pursuit of extreme perfection can only be counterproductive. At the same time, when looking at the problem should not be too absolute, learn to compare relative, while maintaining an optimistic mindset.
4,Shift attention and do things that interest you more
When the patient repeatedly compulsive thinking and compulsive behavior, thinking will focus on one point, it is important to find ways to divert attention, as soon as possible from the reality of the symptoms, get rid of the pain. For example, once you are in an environment where you are prone to compulsive associations and memories, start reading novels or listening to music that interests you, and then focus all your attention on the novel or music, you may forget what you often associate with.
5,Adjust your living condition and learn to relax yourself
OCD patients should properly adjust their living conditions, such as actively participate in a variety of cultural and sports activities, so that not only the boring daily life becomes rich and colorful, but also to reduce the pressure on life, learning, and thus the fear of OCD and anxiety will gradually be reduced. At the same time, every night before going to sleep or when symptoms appear, patients can take a deep breath to relax, while slowly inhaling and exhaling, mentally count the number of times, that is, “counting breath”, so that you can eliminate distracting thoughts, peace of mind, and achieve the purpose of relaxation.
It is important to note that the treatment of OCD should not be a hard confrontational measure, but should be guided in a gradual and progressive manner. For example, in the primary stage, when the patient forces himself to keep washing his hands, do not forcefully stop him, as this will only increase the psychological pressure of the patient, and the severity of the symptoms of OCD is directly proportional to the degree of repression.
The healer should let nature take its course and wash as much as he wants. When the patient gradually figures out the cause and nature of his or her symptoms and treatment measures during the treatment process, he or she will gradually and consciously reduce the frequency of hand washing. Therefore, when the patient gradually regains self-control, it will be more effective to provide appropriate counseling.

To avoid such psychological problems in adolescents, parents and schools should pay attention to the psychological development of adolescents at all stages of growth, develop both intellectual and non-intellectual factors, pay attention to the training of rational thinking as well as irrational thinking, and keep a balance in their psychological development.
