Psychosomatic Secrets: Stuttering
Ever since the days of Plutarch, Demosthenes and Avicenna, it was known that stuttering is of a psychological nature and that people with certain mental characteristics suffer from it. Today, systemic vector psychology determines the true causes, psychological mechanisms, options for the development of stuttering and effective ways of treating it.
Stuttering, logoneurosis, Sikorsky's neurosis is a speech disorder, which is characterized by either stretching of sounds, their frequent repetitions and distortions, or stops, breaks, inability to start a story.
Often people with stuttering develop logoophobia - the fear of speaking, especially in front of a large audience, in unfamiliar places or in a stressful situation.
Since the days of Plutarch, Demosthenes and Avicenna, it was known that this disorder is of a psychological nature and that people with certain mental disorders suffer from it.
Today, systemic vector psychology determines the true causes, psychological mechanisms, options for the development of stuttering and effective ways of treating it.
According to statistics, stuttering is diagnosed for the first time at the age of 2 to 6 years. This is exactly the age when there is an intensive development of all innate psychological qualities, the first ranking among peers takes place, the character is formed and the scenario of the whole life of the future personality is laid.
This period of development requires the maximum stress of the child's psyche, changes take place that require psychological efforts, a search for a way out of the situation, playing their own specific role among peers. It is at this age that children are especially susceptible and immediately give out the result of any influence on the complex process of development of their vectors - both correct and erroneous.
Stuttering is the result of such an erroneous influence, which forms an obstacle to the development of innate properties in children of a certain vector set.
Children with oral, anal and visual vectors or their combination are capable of responding by stuttering to incorrect parenting methods.
Listen, mom, a fairy tale …"
When a small oral begins to learn to speak, he experiments with sounds, syllables and words, trying to understand and master all the possibilities of his erogenous zone. The lover of shouting, growling, snorting, spitting and kissing constantly needs his audience, he does not intend to talk to himself, he must be listened to and heard!
At a very early age, he can lisp, whistle, speak incomprehensibly and quickly, not pronounce some sounds or rearrange them, inventing new words and funny expressions.
The needs of the oral vector are filled only when his speech is heard, he thinks by speaking - only his unique verbal intellect is capable of this.
A little talker can develop and become a great orator, whose talent lies in the formation of common neural connections for any, even a multimillion audience of his listeners. The speech of such an oral person will be listened to with pleasure, understood and inspired by his words, memorized and retelling, quoted and admired for his ability to captivate the masses.
You want to listen to such an outstanding speaker constantly, it's not for nothing that oral teachers always have overcrowded audiences at lectures, his word is simply imprinted in the minds. I listened to the lecture - you know the topic.
A highly developed oral person is simply doomed to great fame, since he is not afraid of either a high tribune or a large audience and is ready to perform for hours incessantly. However, unfortunately, today there are only a few such individuals.
The variant of stuttering with stretching, repetition and distortion of sounds is precisely the case with the oral child. In search of grateful listeners, the little oralist directs his speaking attack primarily at his parents. Not showing interest in the child's story, mom or dad push him to look for a more "popular" topic for conversation, and he begins to invent fables.
Fables about peers, educators, teachers, neighbors and relatives from the mouth of an oral inventor sound like the purest truth. The higher the listener's interest in the narrative becomes, the greater and brightest the details become overgrown with all the details of the story. They listen to him! What could be nicer?
Parents, listening to children's inventions, believe every word, because the oral word is special, one cannot help but believe it. But when the truth is nevertheless revealed, the inevitable punishment immediately follows in the form of blows to the lips. Well, so as not to talk nonsense, so as not to lie any more!
A blow to the lips is a super-stressful direct effect on the erogenous zone of a child with an oral vector, the strongest shock that an oral baby can experience.
On the one hand, he wants to talk, all his mental needs to speak, he simply cannot be silent, this causes a strong imbalance in the biochemistry of his brain, but on the other hand, his words can cause such an inadequate reaction of parents as slap on the lips instead of interest to his stories.
If this situation repeats itself over and over again, the baby begins to stutter, his speech is distorted, he can lisp, lisp, whistle or not pronounce some sounds. In especially severe cases, speech disorders persist for life, significantly reducing its quality, giving rise to problems in communicating with others and making it impossible to fully realize oneself.
The quieter you go, the further you'll get
Another type of stuttering is difficulty with the beginning of a story, breaks and long pauses between words, inability to speak in front of an audience, in an unfamiliar place or in a difficult situation.
Such stuttering develops in children with an anal vector. These are special kids, the most obedient and mother-dependent, they are distinguished by their slowness and indecision, the word of their parents is the law for them, their own decisions are given with great difficulty and after long deliberations. They learn all skills slowly, but thoroughly, in all they need an example to follow, they always ask the most clarifying questions to systematize the knowledge gained at the input, that is, if the anal child does not understand something, he will ask again until will figure it out, only after that he will be able to go further in the process of cognition, regardless of the subject of study, whether it is buttoning a jacket or solving logarithms.
With adequate development of the anal vector until the end of puberty, such a baby in the future will become an outstanding scientist, analyst, expert in his field, the most highly qualified professional in his field, a talented teacher who can make all his students fall in love with his subject.
An anal child loves to learn and delight his parents with good behavior, order in toys or excellent grades, such a child receives the greatest pleasure from well-deserved praise, recognition of his achievements, justification of his efforts.
He lives at his unhurried pace, doing everything measuredly and meticulously, every action he started must be completed, brought to a point, to the very end, otherwise unfinished work will oppress him, remaining in his memory for a long time and causing an imbalance in the biochemistry of the brain …
Any hurrying, twitching, abrupt changes in occupations, constant interruptions of his slow speech, deprivation of the opportunity to finish speaking to the end, to finish the story that he had begun, to say everything he intended, result in a persistent speech disorder - the baby begins to stutter.
Such an innate quality as the fear of embarrassment makes the stuttering child avoid situations where it is necessary to speak, especially in front of an audience, even a small one.
The task of telling homework or answering a teacher's question in front of the whole class at the blackboard turns into a difficult test when the child falls into a stupor and the ability to express himself is completely lost. The most diligent and diligent student begins to lag behind in school, to avoid communicating with peers, and especially painfully perceives ridicule and jokes addressed to him.
It is such a child in a calm, familiar environment, in the presence of a familiar person, in a relaxed state, is able to utter simple words and sentences absolutely normally without disturbing the rhythm of speech.
Scary to say
Another option for the development of stuttering is speech impairment in children with a visual vector. It is this variant that is popularly called "fright" stuttering.
A visual child is the most emotional, sensitive and impressionable. Any emotion is experienced by him at its highest intensity. If joy, then this is a real delight with appropriate facial expressions, gestures, up to jumping, but if it's a nuisance, then it's just the end of the world with bitter tears, sobbing and lamentations. The amplitude is maximum, the ability to switch is instantaneous. From tears to laughter - one moment.
For the normal development of the visual vector, such a baby needs a strong emotional connection with his mother, which provides him with a sense of security and safety. Developing adequately (without any kind of home scarecrows, scary cartoons, cruel fairy tales, and the like), the visual child learns compassion and empathy for other people, thus learning to bring his fear out into love and sympathy.
The most fearful in childhood, he is able to become fearless for the sake of other people, conscious all-embracing love for people leaves no room for a scanty feeling of fear, filling the maximum visual vector of a high level of development.
Depending on the lower vectors, developed visual learners either become carriers of culture (art or education workers), or find themselves in medicine and charity (social workers, volunteers, and the like).
In childhood, during the period of intensive development of vectors, it is the visual child who is especially susceptible to fright, and strong emotional stress can cause a disturbance in the child's speech. And without that, emotional visual speech becomes even more confused, it seems as if he does not have enough air, he is overwhelmed with emotions, leaving no place for the normal pronunciation of words. The inability to tell everything you wanted to, to share your joy or grief, upsets the little viewer even more, depriving the joy of communicating with relatives and friends of a representative of one of the most extroverted vectors.
Childhood fears in adulthood have a risk of developing into persistent phobias or causing panic attacks, significantly reducing the quality of life, depleting the emotional sphere and depriving the person's ability to fully realize himself in society.
Visual stuttering is the easiest to treat. It is enough to remove the fears that lie at the root of the speech disorder, and it will completely normalize at any age.
The process is reversible
The development of any vector continues until the end of puberty, that is, up to 12-15 years. During this period, it is still possible to correct the mistakes of upbringing and direct the development of the child's psyche in a positive direction. With the elimination of factors that negatively affect the specific psychological qualities of the baby, the results of adequate upbringing are not long in coming.
Stuttering in any form can remain in the past, giving way to pure and competent literary speech of a full-fledged member of society, capable of realizing himself and getting the maximum pleasure from life.
Even persistent speech disorders that persisted in adulthood, losing their psychological background, gradually go away in the process of forming systems thinking after training in System-Vector Psychology.
Stuttering as a result of the psychological stresses of erroneous upbringing is a completely reversible phenomenon, and it is reversible in the shortest possible time and for life.
