Welcome to the May 2021 edition of Psychology for Positive Change, a blog about how psychology can make a positive difference to lives/society. In this article I will explore the concept of Stress Mapping and how we can use it to support ourselves and/or others. (This article was originally published on our old website in May 2019).
Have you ever listened to someone else talk through a problem or situation and felt the urge to offer them advice or solutions? That’s the righting reflex, which is the subject of this blog post. In this instalment we’ll explore further what the righting reflex is, and why it can be a problem. We’ll also look at how we can manage it, and ways in which we can respond other than ‘fixing’.
This article was originally written as the March 2020 edition of Psychology for Positive Change, prior to the change of our company name. However, given some recent interest in the article, I'm re-publishing it on the Aspen Psychology Services website. In this article I will explore the notion of our ‘inner gremlins’, how they can be a hindrance to us (looking particularly at how they can interfere with the writing process), and how we can manage them.
