The Question

For this assignment you are required to identify physiological explanations of a psychological process to later be compared to spiritual/supernatural explanations about the process. You will explore cultural influences and ethical implications of this perspective in addition to identifying any biochemical, genetic, and structural influences. 

  • 1. Summarize the physiological perspective of the psychological process you explored in the Spiritual Explanation Paper, making sure to ground this viewpoint in existing scholarly literature.
  • 2. In presenting the physiological components, make sure to describe relevant anatomy involved as well as the physiological mechanisms, including any biochemical, genetic, and structural influences.
  • 3. Explore what the ethical implications of this explanation are. These should not be general ethical considerations, but rather how this particular explanation of the problem would affect the ethics of interventions. For instance, if you approach an individual with schizophrenia believing schizophrenia is caused by biochemical imbalances, what would you have to consider ethically?
  • 4. Explore any cultural influences and/or differences. This includes how the psychological process may appear differently in various cultures.
  • 5. The paper should be 3-4 pages (excluding your title and reference pages), using APA format.

Psychosis One of the psychological processes that have had a supernatural/ spiritual explanation is

 

Psychosis. The experiences of psychosis include hearing voices, believe things that other people

 

find strange, thought disorder and experiencing confusion periods where one seems out of touch

 

with reality which is known as acute psychosis. Some people believe that psychosis by blood

 

poisoning from the evil spirits and hence tend to think that they are evil. Other people believe

 

that spirits are warping their thoughts and changing their ideas which always make them feel

 

frightened. Some explanations get used by individuals from various ethnic minorities that are

 

strange to people from some majority cultures. For instance, people from a culture where most

 

people believe that there is a possibility that psychosis gets caused by demon possession makes

 

them feels obsessed.

 

Furthermore, some people hear voices via their ears and believe that the voices are from

 

their ancestors to help them cope with the difficult life situations. The people tend to

 

communicate with those voices, consulting them for their benefits or their clients if they are in a

 

particular job position. Although the voices are not actual sounds, some people tend to believe in

 

them and never feel restricted to them. Rather, they feel that they are protective and they give

 

them advice and care (Marshall, 2011).

 

There is also the idea that psychotic crises are as a result of spiritual crises and hence

 

people tend to believe that their crises led to spiritual growth. Some believe that psychotic

 

episodes are transformative crises that cause spiritual growth. Some people also believe that

 

various life events lead to psychosis. For instance, people have to deal with stressful events in PSYCHOSIS Lee 3 their lives such as failure events which lead rejection, divorce, disappointments from people and

 

other. Some cultures believe that psychosis can be as a result of such incidents (Seikkula, 2011).

 

Although relationships are at times stressful and challenging, culture through family and

 

friends are the ones who can offer moral support and help, even towards those people who live

 

alone. Trying to help is sometimes challenging and frustrating especially when a loved one gets

 

lost in the experiences. When relatives and friends can maintain the situation?s calm, it brings a

 

relaxed atmosphere at home and brings a difference towards the person?s recovery

 

Different cultures help their patients in various methods to overcome the psychic nature.

 

Psychotic episodes cause great sufferings where the society helps those people by involving them

 

in organized religious communities. Some people claim that psychosis made them stronger.

 

Despite the pains they experienced in their life, the illness seemed to give them a different

 

outlook on most people. They tend to stick up for disabled people when others discriminate

 

them. Many cultures have accepted many intellectual people in the society without any

 

discrimination. After struggling, going through trials and tribulations in coping with psychosis,

 

they feel better than before and can help the people suffering from the same illness. Support from

 

family and friends are the most crucial form of aid. The best ways of help include acceptance

 

from the household and friends by showing support and love, valuing the person?s opinions and

 

views. Furthermore, the society should learn about the person?s experience and know how to

 

assist. The person should also get help in regaining their independence after the crisis. The

 

people should get encouraged in joining self-help groups and support groups by doing things

 

differently (Phillips 2009). PSYCHOSIS Lee 4 In a case of believe that demons cause schizophrenia, one should ethically offer guided

 

mindfulness sessions to the victim. We should not put our energy into fighting and attempting to

 

control it, but rather should develop acceptance of the people and their emotional pain.
