Mental "Illness" and Centering

6 posts in this topic

I found it interesting a while back when I saw some mental illnesses are caused by Centering Issues, when not caused by actual physical damage.

I'm not inclined to automatically agree with this, but I am intrigued by it.

It states OCD(Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) is often caused by a breakdown in communication between physiological aspects of self.
Schizophrenia is often caused by a breakdown in communication between emotional aspects of self.
And Multiples(Dissociative Identity Disorder) is often caused by a breakdown in communication between intellectual aspects of self.

It also states Bi-Polar is often attributed to those operating in the Intellectually Centered, Moving Part function. While Schizophrenia is often attributed to those operating in the Intellectually Centered, Moving Part.

Assuming this is true, I wonder what the other Center>Parts would specifically struggle with?
Perhaps OCD is of the Moving>Emotional function more specifically, and DID is of the Intellectual>Emotional function?
Specific anxiety disorders could be of Emotional>Intellectual, while Moving>Intellectual might be inclined to Cluster B Personality Disorders.

Dunno, those are just theories based on what I've read.
I'm aware Centering does change frequently though, because it's habitual.

In the case of ADHD, they mention being either an  Artisan or Artisan cast,  or extreme CF immersion, and for autism having a goal of Re-evaluation sometimes. I'd be surprised if it was all about centering.

Oh my bad.
I didn't mean all mental illnesses of course.

For instance Dependent Personality Disorder can be caused by an unfinished 2nd IM into adulthood.
And Narcissism is said to be related to Self-Deprecation and Arrogance- used as a means to secure your importance and control your exposure and self-esteem.

Ok, I edited my post to clarify on "some".

Sorry, I just realized I wasn't clear, I meant extreme CF immersion for more than just ADHD, so yeah.

Schizophrenia Disorders

 

There is nothing called Schizophrenia Disorders!  

 

If you are referring to Personality Disorders, these would be the Schizoid and Schizotypal (Cluster A - odd).

 

Although we no longer work with Axis A and B where clear distinction between Mental Illness and Personality Disorder was made, it does not affect the distinction between individual diagnoses. 

 

Schizophrenia, Dissociative Identity Disorder (Multiple Personality Disorder is not used anymore), Schizoid Personality Disorder and Schizotypal Personality Disorder are four entirely different things.

 

Hope it helps in the musings.

Oh, thanks PPLD.
I put "Disorder" next to it because the Multiples and OCD had "Disorder" next to them too.
I was meaning more the variants or subtypes than Schizotypal and whatnot.
I am aware we don't use MPD anymore though, but I included it since the question and answer did.

I'll update the post to reflect such.
