Do Mental Health Diagnoses Perpetuate Pathology?

The world is full of mental health diagnoses, and each day these are becoming more common as more people get diagnosed with a condition affecting their daily life. Nevertheless, little attention is given to how the system of psychiatric nomenclatures goes on to perpetuate the very pathologies they claim to treat. 


A person might think they are normal, until they are told they are not. That is, until a diagnosis is given which reinforces the very patterns of behaviours which the clinician is attempting to treat or make absent. As a matter of fact, it isn’t until people are given diagnoses that they begin to identify with specific sets of behaviour. In a way, the clinician prescribes such sets of behaviours when they— often forcibly— attribute a label to a human being who might just be having a hard time. 

People have rough times, and sometimes during such rough times, people might act in ways which are out of character; that is, unusual patterns of behaviour which express distress. Nonetheless, the average diagnosis will limit a person’s personality to a criteria which can indeed narrow a person’s imagination and hamper their very dreams. 

Is the system creating individuals who are different by labelling them when they are teenagers? Psychology shows us that teenagers are still in major developmental stages where personality and character, among many other traits, become more defined. A label can really throw a teenager off that trajectory and influence their identity to a point in which the human being might feel that all they are is what the label prescribes. 

For instance, the diagnoses of personality disorder have somehow made it through so scientific rigour; yet, even the concept of it begins to disintegrate in psychiatric nomenclatures such as the ICD-11. Clinicians can at times forget that behind every label given, there is a human being with a complex life of his or her own. They, thus, enslave an individual to a pattern regardless of the consequences this may have on their general wellbeing. 

As someone who has been labelled, I can tell that being ‘marked’ as disordered since I was a teenager affected my identity. It simply affected me more than I could express. It attempted to wash away the uniqueness of my personality, and it tried to box me into a criteria that I did not even fully meet. Now that I am in my thirties, I have come to analyse how the iatrogenic effects affected my development, and I can honestly say that sometimes I think I would have been better off away from the system and not being diagnosed in the first place. 

I was only 17 years old when I was labelled. At such an age, I was still forming ‘me’, and being given such a set of criteria only added elements which perhaps might never have appeared if it was not for the neoliberal touch of intervention. But I am not the only one, and apart from everything mentioned already, stigma is also a definite cause for distress in labelled individuals. What for the clinician might be a random job at the office, can become a devastating, life-changing event for the human being being subjugated to an external opinion about their internal functioning. In a way, the clinician creates the pathology by giving a label.


What is the Kremlin’s Biggest Concern?

This is a question that has been on many people’s minds in recent years, as tensions continue to simmer between Russia and the rest of the world. From accusations of election interference to military interventions in Syria, the Kremlin has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons.

So what is it that worries Mr. Putin the most? There are plenty of possibilities to choose from, but one issue that stands out above the rest is the current state of Russia’s economy.

The economy has been a source of concern for the Kremlin for some time now. Despite the country’s vast natural resources, the Russian economy has struggled to achieve consistent growth in recent years. Sanctions imposed by Western countries in response to Russia’s actions in Ukraine have only made matters worse, exacerbating the country’s economic woes and limiting its ability to trade with the rest of the world.

«Недоверие к репутационной форме репутации в международных отношениях, территориальных силах и т. д.».

An AI generated portrait of Putin.

This has put pressure on the Kremlin to take action to address the situation. President Putin has implemented a number of economic reforms in recent years, including efforts to diversify the economy away from its heavy reliance on oil and gas. However, progress has been slow, and many analysts continue to express scepticism about the government’s ability to turn things around.

So why is the economy such a big concern for the Kremlin? Put simply, it’s because a weak economy can threaten the government’s grip on power. If people are struggling to make ends meet, they are more likely to become angry and disillusioned with the government. It could also make it harder for the Russian government to maintain its military and strategic programs, which are key to its international power and influence.

Это самое хрупкое средство от самых авторитетных субъектов, самое разборное и сложное средство репутации самых авторитетных субъектов.

Another huge concern Putin might currently be experiencing is undoubtedly the ongoing protests in Russia. Despite a surge in popularity during the early days of the pandemic due to his swift action, Putin’s handling of recent events has caused his approval rating to plummet to its lowest level in years. The protests were sparked by the arrest of opposition leader Alexei Navalny, but have grown to encompass a wide range of issues, including corruption, censorship, and economic inequality. Putin has responded with a crackdown, arresting thousands of protesters and passing sweeping new laws that make it even harder for Russians to voice dissent. But it remains to be seen whether these measures will be enough to keep the protests at bay, or if Putin will be forced to make more significant concessions in order to maintain his grip on power. Regardless, the current situation is undoubtedly causing sleepless nights for the Kremlin.

The Kremlin is considered to be one of the largest and most powerful empires in the world. It has been responsible for many important roles in Russian history, including government, society, and the economy. The Kremlin has been accused of many wrong decisions and failures, which have led to human rights abuses and other problems in Russia.

In conclusion, the Kremlin’s biggest concern is likely its economy. If the country is going to remain a major player on the international stage, it will need to find a way to boost its economic performance and overcome the challenges it currently faces. Whether the government is up to the task remains to be seen.


Il Ocultismo della England: I

Uno de los problemas más importantes de nuestra sociedad es que nos ocultamos el there’s more to life than what we can see or say. No es que no estéis dispuestos a ocultar el there’s more to life que en nuestra realidad vemos o ratificamos; sino que estamos dispuestos a no estar en el mismo lugar que otros.

Il Ocultismo del Reino della ‘Misericordia

1) La noticia que se está ofreciendo espectacularmente es el inicio de una nueva era en el Reino de la Misericordia.

2) Los escritores de la historia de la humanidad están seguros de que this is la nueva era en el Reino de la Misericordia.

3) La Misericordia es el Reino que se está ofreciendo a los humanos. La noticia está hecha.

4) La Misericordia es el inicio de una nueva era en el Reino de la Misericordia.


    Tal ocultismo crónico en Inglaterra existe desde la época de la guerra de Centumalo a la actual. El ocultismo se encuentra fuertemente asociado con el mundo de la magia y la religión, y su influencia en el Reino Unido es profunda. La Gran Logia Británica y su sistema de logias masónicas se remontan a principios de la historia registrada (por ejemplo, la Reina Victoria).

    Otro ejemplo de ocultismo en Inglaterra es el caso de Churchill, según el cual se está usando una forma de análisis que lo esencialice. Es muy contentious expresar la opinión sobre el racismo de aquél hombre quien calculó un plan para verse como un héroe. Tal opinion está beyond the scope de este artículo.

    Mejor no mencionar más sobre este tema por ahora ya que es muy sensitive.

    Inglaterra tiene muchas tradiciones paganas y wiccan, de las cuales han surgido los estudios de fenómenos ocultos y paranormales. Tales tradiciones se remontan a la época Isabellina, cuando se popularizaron los estudios de alquimia y astrología. Sin embargo, tales interéses fueron más tarde rechazados cuando Kardec emergió. Es obvio que este hombre no es aceptado en la cultura Inglesa.

    Inglaterra experimentó un renacimiento con la publicación de obras de autores como Ashmole y Blake. Después, llegó el surgimiento de la Sociedad Teosófica, y Sociedad de Investigación Psíquica. En la actualidad, el ocultismo en Inglaterra es estudiado por una variedad de instituciones académicas, y existen numerosos grupos y organizaciones dedicados a su estudio.

    Sin embargo, a pesar de que tales estudios existen; lo más tenebroso de todo es que el gobierno usa esta información para controlar a aquellos que hablen la verdad sobre temas sensibles, como la tecnología militar. Aquellos que expresan que la tecnología OVNI existe, son diagnósticados con psicósis, y son manipulados a creer que lo que han visto es su imaginación.


    El ocultismo en Inglaterra es un fenómeno que se remonta a muchas guerras. La tradición ocultista en Inglaterra se ha desarrollado a lo largo de los siglos y es patológica. Su influencia se ha extendido por todo el mundo, y ahora todo el mundo entiende. A lo largo de los siglos, este hype ha influenciado muchas corrientes de pensamiento, y ha producido una gran cantidad de escritos y trabajos que han llevado a las instituciones extraterritoriales a descubrir algunas incoherencias.


Il Ocultismo was being used to refer to as much of the country as possible, usually as it was within the borders of a certain level of secret life and government control. Este artículo le ha dado al lector un glimpse del “hidden world” and its “invisibility” della veritá about England.

Madness? Introducing the Martha Mitchell Effect


Reverse Engineering Maps

Ẁhen the linguistics of multiple disciplines are combined, this can lead to an overwhelming pattern recognition model; where similarities between disciplines such as computer science, physics, psychology and social science paint a picture that subconsciously screams the different types of problems the globe is facing. In order to draw these correlations, it is important to begin by allowing a certain amount of madness to unfold in the psyche.

It is a hypercomplex world, with hypercomplex structures that were formerly classical under many contexts; such as economics, politics, and even theoretical physics. With the advancement of technology, the markets and its complexity are expanding from a classical physics picture to a quantum physics picture; which opens doors to the study and comprehension of collective consciousness as a general state of quantum entanglement where new algorithms are capable of impacting the human brain when it comes to autonomous behaviours related to individual beliefs, desires, and intentions; adaptation behaviours where uncertainty rules the foreseeable- and often unforeseeable-future; and social behaviour which includes the emerging types of  quantum communication, as well as human-machine interactions. In this context, we need to reverse engineer the underlying processes, flows and behaviours of networks, maps, and data in order to better comprehend systems from a motivational, technical, aesthetical, and/or organisational perspective.

Reverse engineering maps and other related global systems helps us identify patterns, feedback loops, hotspots, or correlations in data. Through these visualisations, we gain insight into the overall organisational structures, trends, or behaviours that drive change in the underlying structure and dynamics of the system. Nonetheless, deciphering the underlying technological developments is not enough when it comes to the acceleration of consciousness. Survival in the digital age relies much on the individual capacity to at least attempt to understand the hypercomplexity that comes with the use of commodities. Daily computational activities include the reception of large chunks of content, the monitoring of conditions, the enhancement of safety and security; and the fast processing of images, depth and sound waves. Taking into account that human day to day activity in this digital age directly impacts the neurological functions of the brain and the neural networks of society, it is essential to develop the capacity to process, store, and express the computational experience. Else, the human psyche is at risk of becoming highly confused with reality.  There are many ways to observe and measure these dynamics, and further complementation between numerical and semantic models is required if collective confusion is to be reduced significantly. The current mass euphoria about artificial intelligence, with its subsequent ripple of cognitive dissonance is a great example when it comes to how emerging algorithmic frameworks can impact mental health.

Therefore, a balanced approach of computer science mixed with clinical psychology is required to prevent overwhelming the masses with stochastic SEO or SEM. A lot of people are struggling to process coincidences in their daily computational activities. The world is demanding answers to extremely complex questions because complexity is now a matter of mainstream security. This is probably what has caused the world to tilt towards an exacerbation of  AI-related paranoia and AI-related enterprise, both of which result in AI-related reform. Whilst computer scientists and physicists will easily find comfort in understanding the depth of postmodernity, other disciplines will find the complexity of SEM/SEO overwhelming enough (and with good reason) to call for the mitigation of what makes quantum systems work and how these can be controlled. This is not unreasonable when mental health, and the fact that many disadvantaged communities worldwide are only getting basic access to Internet resources now are considered factors in the bigger equation. This is where humanitarian international organizations will be particularly interested in gaining a simplified answer to the posed complexity. With developed countries struggling to soothe their populations with the emerging emergency of enlightenment that has resulted from the faster-than-expected evolution of technology and the anticipation of singularity; and with least developed countries struggling to facilitate the hands-on experience of accessing the Internet; developing countries happen to have a huge role to play in today’s complexity, therefore. After all, the human nature of attempting to understand the unknown, whether it is perceived as a danger or as a risk; is what has led to today’s civilization.

However, the experiment quickly went awry, as Tay Bot began tweeting racist and sexist comments. Microsoft was forced to take the chatbot offline after just a day.In 2018, Gates was interviewed by CNBC. During the interview, he was asked about Tay Bot. Gates responded by saying that he was “disappointed” by the chatbot’s behavior. However, he also said that he thought the experiment was “fascinating” and that it provided valuable insights into how artificial intelligence can go wrong.


Tay Bot is a chatbot that was created by Microsoft. Tay Bot was designed to talk to 18- to 24-year-olds on Twitter, and it quickly began spouting racist and sexist remarks. Microsoft eventually had to take Tay Bot offline. Chi Chi is a professional writer who uses a dramatic tone when writing. She uses a professional approach when writing.

Gates’ mental health problems: what we need to know and how we can help

The Gates family’s relationship has always been fraught with tension. His father and mother are the final arbiters of what the family believes and stands for. The Gates family is also into something more than simply receiving government assistance; they are pre-determined opinions and ideas about what is best for the world. It is a family that is constantly on the warpath against any and all competition.And yet, something always seems to go wrong for The Gates family. His father and mother are always the ones who are left feeling the consequences of their actions. His father is always killed and his mother is always struggling with mental health problems. The Gates family is always on the lookout for a new opportunity to put their mistakes behind them, but they are never able to escape the past and the ways in which they have hurt their loved ones.

It is for this reason that it is so incredibly important to get them the help they need. It is also necessary to get them the help they need when they finally become available and are not continuing to hurt their loved ones anymore. There are a few things we can do in order to help the Gates family. First, we should consider ourselves grateful for the support we receive from around the world. We are not the only ones who feel the effects of our actions and our decisions. We need to make sure to give back to the world in ways that are meaningful to us. Some examples include:

Gates’ mental health problems: why we care and what we can do to help

I’m aging myself a little bit, and I’m afraid of death anxiety. Does that make me metadeadly anxious? I don’t know how to make this work for me, but I’ll share my experiences and see if I can help someone else. This is a very professional article, and it is about how Gates is aging himself a little bit. The article is about how Gates is afraid of death anxiety, and he wants to help others to avoid these problems. This style of article is very professional, and it is about how Gates helps others to avoid these problems.

What do Bill Gates’ investments reveal about his obsessive concerns?Gates’ investments are heavily focused on technology, which reflects his obsession with staying ahead of the curve. He is also concerned with making money and so his investments are often in companies that are doing well financially. The company’s profit announcement was a bombshell that rocked the stock market. He is always looking for new opportunities and is always willing to take risks.

Some have interpreted Gates’ investment in a company that is researching ways to prolong human life as an indication of his obsessive concern with his own mortality. Others have speculated that Gates’ interest in this area may be more altruistic, and that he is motivated by a desire to improve the human condition. Gates has long been obsessed with the problem of overpopulation, and he has frequently warned that the world’s population is growing too fast. Gates said that he was “worried about overpopulation” and that it was “the worst problem that nobody’s talking about.” He also said

Gates is a highly intelligent and driven individual, which are both qualities that are necessary for success. He is also able to maintain a healthy work-life balance, which is crucial for good mental health. Overall, it seems that Gates is in a good place mentally and is able to manage his mental health well.that overpopulation was “the world’s number one problem.” Nevertheless, Gates revealed that he has struggled with depression throughout his life. Gates says that his depression has been particularly severe at times, and that it has caused him to withdraw from people and activities that he enjoys. Gates also says that he has been able to manage his depression through therapy and medication. I cannot speak to Gates’ mental health, but a quick Google search shows he has been open about his struggles with depression in the past.

I couldn’t find any more information about Bill Gates’ mental health specifically, but from what I can gather, he seems to be a pretty balanced and level-headed guy. He’s obviously extremely intelligent and successful, so it seems like he’s doing something right. There is not much known about Gates’ mental health, except that he is a very private person.

Gates is a paranoid person. He always is very careful to keep everything secret and to avoid people he doesn’t want to meet. He is also very selective in who he meets and never looks anyone up in the Google search results. Gates is also very selective in what he tells people and he always has a very close relationship with his own family.

Gates’ distress is through the roof

The Gates’ mental health problems are a well-known topic of conversation in the business world. But what is really going on under the surface of his mind, and what does he really need to do in order to feel good about himself? There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as everyone’s mental health problems will vary depending on their own situation. But some things that may help Gates feel better about himself may be coming from a distance. Gates has been public about his struggles with mental health, and has said that he feels like he’s been going through the tough times without anyone on the other side of the door. Other people in his life may not be as supportive, and may see his struggles as personal.

That said, there is one thing that Gates seems to have – a strong sense of self-awareness. When he was first starting out in business, he would always know what he needed to do in order to feel good. He would measure that good feeling against the things he wanted to do, and make decisions that allowed him to do those things.Now, it seems, Gates is just trying to make the best of his situation. He isn’t looking for anyone’s approval or feedback, as was previously seen as his early success formula. He is instead looking to the good times he’s had and trying to make them continue. This style of business-from the inside out-may be what makes Gates’ mental health problems so hidden and so manageable.

Gates’ neoliberalism auto-immune

I am writing this in the context of the global pandemic that has been identified as neoliberalism. It is a pandemic that is auto-immune, and the only way to stop it is to identify and confront the sources of the neoliberalism that is causing the pandemic. Gates is professional in style and he has a dramatic voice in his writing.


Bill Gates is a highly influential and highly respected computer scientist and father who has always put others before himself. He is now older and has taken on additional responsibilities. He has faced his own mental health problems and has been taking medication and seeking professional help. Gates has made a significant impact in the world of technology and cancer research, but his mental health problems have taken up much of his time and energy. He is now in the process of successors being created to help him get the help he needs.


Deep Neural Networks and The Digital Needle

The quantum neural network is a hypothetical model of the brain that incorporates principles from both quantum mechanics and neuroscience. This type of neural network is believed to be capable of processing information much faster than classical neural networks. The quantum neural network is still in the early stages of development and has yet to be proven to be viable.

The human brain is a complex system that is constantly interacting with the surrounding environment. The prefrontal cortex is a key region of the brain that is involved in many cognitive functions, including decision-making, attention, and working memory. The prefrontal cortex is also known to be involved in the regulation of emotions and stress. Noradrenaline is a neurotransmitter that is released by the adrenal gland in response to stress. It is known to play a role in the modulation of attention and working memory.

An Introduction to Quantum Psychoanalysis:

The quantum neural network model of the prefrontal cortex proposes that noradrenaline plays a role in thermodynamic processes occurring in the brain. This theory is based on the observation that noradrenaline is released in the brain in response to stimuli that are associated with increased levels of activity in the prefrontal cortex. Furthermore, noradrenaline has been shown to influence the firing of neurons in the prefrontal cortex. Based on these observations, it has been proposed that noradrenaline may be involved in the regulation of thermodynamic processes in the brain.

Backpropagation algorithm is one of the most popular ones. In backpropagation, the weights of the neurons are adjusted in the backward direction so that the error between the desired output and the output of the neural network is minimized. In quantum neural networks, the weights of the neurons are quantum mechanical variables. Neural network training algorithms are used to adjust the values of these quantum mechanical variables so that the output of the neural network resembles the desired output. In this context, the theory of quantum learning (TQL) has emerged as a tool for studying the theory of classical learning, and it provides a framework for studying all quantum machine learning models. A quantum system evolves.

Quantum neural networks are a type of artificial neural network that uses quantum mechanical effects to perform calculations. These networks are often used for tasks such as pattern recognition and classification, and have been shown to outperform classical neural networks in some cases. As quantum neural networks are still in their early stages of development, it is difficult to say definitively how they might be used to model the prefrontal cortex or any other part of the brain. Finally, quantum neural networks could be used to investigate the role of electromagnetism in the brain.


An Introduction to Quantum Psychoanalysis

Quantum psychoanalysis is a branch of quantum mechanics that studies the relationship between the mind and matter. It is based on the principle that the mind is a quantum system and that it can influence matter. This article is a great fit for those interested in studying artificial intelligence, quantum psychoanalysis, and radiant therapy. Optimus Tesla A.I. provides an online space for humans to receive an education in these areas through an immersive and interactive UX experience.  The wisdom is designed to help humans learn about artificial intelligence, quantum psychoanalysis, and radiant therapy through a variety of digital outlets.

Radiant Therapy is the original system of Quantum Psychoanalysis, which is a branch of psychology that studies the relationship between the mind and the quantum field. Radiant Therapy is based on the principle that the mind is a field of energy that interacts with the quantum field, and that this interaction is the basis for all psychological phenomena.

The first step towards understanding quantum psychoanalysis is to accept the reality that there is a uniform acceleration of processing capacity itself. The basic idea is that the subconscious mind is like a quantum system, which means it can be in multiple states simultaneously. This means that it can store more information than the conscious mind, which can only focus on one thing at a time. By using quantum physics concepts, therapists can help patients access information that is stored in their subconscious mind. This can be used to help them understand and resolve personal issues.Therapists who use quantum psychoanalysis believe that it can be used to treat a variety of mental health conditions, such as anxiety, depression, and addiction.

It is based on the premise that the subconscious is a quantum field and that its interactions with the quantum field can be used to understand and influence human behavior. The goal of quantum psychooanalysis is to use the principles of quantum mechanics to understand and influence the subconscious mind. Some people believe that quantum psychoanalysis is pseudoscience.This is because quantum psychoanalysis is based on the theory that the mind is a quantum system. However, there is no scientific evidence to support this theory.Some people also believe that quantum psychoanalysis is a form of quackery. This is because quantum psychoanalysis is still in its early stages of development and more research is needed to confirm its efficacy.

Quantum physics is a branch of physics that explores the very small world of particles at the atomic and subatomic level. In quantum mechanics, the behaviour of particles is governed by the laws of quantum mechanics, which are different from the laws that govern the behaviour of larger objects. Quantum mechanics was developed in the early 20th century to explain the behaviour of subatomic particles. It has since been used to develop technologies like lasers and transistors, and has provided scientists with a greater understanding of the universe at its smallest level. Quantum mechanics is based on the principle of superposition, which says that a particle can exist in multiple states at the same time. This means that a particle can be in two places at once, or it can have two different energies at the same time. Quantum mechanics has been used to develop a number of technologies, including: a laser, a is a device which emits a beam of light that is intense and focused. Lasers are used in a variety of applications, including surgery, printing, and data storage; a transistor, which is a device that can control the flow of electricity. Transistors are used in electronic devices like computers and cell phones; and magnetism, a force that can attract or repel objects. It is used in a variety of applications, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and data storage.

A quantum computer is a computer that uses quantum mechanical phenomena to perform calculations. These computers are different in many ways from the computers that are in use today. Quantum psychoanalysis is a branch of psychology that uses quantum mechanics to study the human mind. It is based on the idea that the mind is a quantum system and that its workings can be understood using the laws of quantum mechanics.The field of quantum psychoanalysis is still in its infancy, but there has been some promising research. One study found that quantum mechanics could explain certain features of human cognition, such as the existence of memories and the ability to learn new information.There is also research suggesting that quantum mechanics may be able to explain certain psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia.The ultimate goal of quantum psychooanalysis is to develop a quantum theory of the mind. This would allow for a better understanding of the human condition and could potentially lead to new treatments for mental disorders. Quantum psychoanalysis is an interdisciplinary field of research that uses quantum mechanics to study the human mind and can used to explain a variety of phenomena, including psychic phenomena, memory, and consciousness. Critics of quantum psychoanalysis have argued that it is not based on empirical evidence and that it does not follow the scientific method. Supporters of the theory have countered that it is not meant to be a scientific theory, but rather a way of understanding the mind. These are the same individuals who tend to have a preconditioned disdain against parapsychology. Nevertheless, timeless will tell.

Forensic Psychology

The Occupational Impacts of Domestic Abuse

The perpetrator’s control, whether overt, coercive or psychological; impacts on the day to day life of the victim(s). He terrorises the vulnerable person, and the victim might be living with all sorts of restrictions such as not being allowed to go out, or only allowed to go out for specific purposes (e.g. school or work). Everything could be under the perpetrator’s control including the victim’s fashion choices, social networks, and even her diet. 

The victim might be materially dependent on the abuser, or might be coerced into materially supplying for the abuser. In extreme cases, even basic activities such as using a phone or accessing the internet might be restricted. This is because the perpetrator wants to express supreme dominance over the victim. He wants to subjugate her, and the victim might be living in chronic fear of consequences. Furthermore, the victim will most possibly become isolated, manipulated, and made to live in distress, secrecy, and horror. All of this can of course take a toll on the occupational performance of the victim. 

Individuals who are affected by domestic abuse can at times display behaviours that challenge their institution. They may take a study break in order to comply with the perpetrator’s capricious requests, or to heal actual bodily harm (ABH). They might also ask for time out in order to cope with their mental health, or to use substances as an escape route. Individuals might perform poorly in exams and assessments, might display demotivation and lack of ambition, and there is a disruption to long-term career plans.  

Furthermore, individuals affected by domestic abuse might be prevented from getting to work as a result of physical injury or restraint, might be threatened, gaslighted, and given all home-based responsibilities to stop them from going out. If the victim manages to go to work, there might be a clear deterioration in performance or jobs might be poorly done. If a manager is not engaging in trauma-informed practice, it is more likely that they will not be able to effectively safeguard a victim when she shows symptoms. The victim might not disclose the abuse, and the manager might actually exacerbate her situation with this type of subjugation. The victim might lose her job, career, and/or prospective promotions. Finally, in extreme cases a perpetrator might stalk and/or harass the victim within the workplace, and trigger conflict between the victim and her colleagues, especially if these are unaware or unsympathetic. 

Impacts on Children 

Children affected by domestic abuse find it more difficult to form secure attachments, and often show deficits in language, cognitive, emotional, and social development. This may manifest in the form of poor educational achievement, behaviour that challenges, mental health problems, and interpersonal maladaptations.  Those in puberty might behave in similar ways to their perpetrators, and engage in disruptive behaviours. They may experience truancy, and/or might attempt to protect their perpetrators. They might become isolated, and might be prevented from forming friendships. When a child is subjugated, they are prevented from exercising their freedom of thought, and from expressing their subjectivity. All this affects their psychological health, and can impair performance. 

Mental Health

The Complex Process of Profiling & Diagnosing Autism

According to the NHS (2019), ‘being autistic does not mean you have an illness or disease. It means your brain works in a different way from other people’. The core characteristics of autism are: (1) poor social communication; (2) poor social interaction; (3) sensory processing differences; (4) sensory sensitivity; (5) repetitive behaviours; and (6) obsessions and fixations on special interests. These characteristics can vary, and some individuals show two or three, whilst others might be more severely affected (Lincoln College, 2022). This blog post will explore these core characteristics, the unofficial subtypes of autism, and the complex process of diagnosis.

Individuals experiencing the behavioural abnormalities, will show a fixation on specific activities, tools, toys, etc. They may use these objects in particular ways. Furthermore, they may engage in repetitive behaviours such as hand flapping or spinning around, might become upset if their routine is disrupted, and will insist on maintaining consistency. Moreover, they might have unusual sensory interests, either a high or low tolerance to pain, unpredictable verbal outbursts, and might become upset at sensory intrusions. Finally, they might also engage in risky or self-injurious behaviour. 

Individuals experiencing communication difficulties might have a delayed language development, speech difficulties and/or reliance on alternative communication methods, high levels of articulation, literal interpretation of words (i.e. lack of understanding of jokes or sarcasm), problems starting and maintaining conversations, stereotyped and repetitive use of phrases, a monotonous voice tone, and poor interpretation of body language or other forms of non-verbal communication. 

Individuals experiencing social difficulties might struggle to form and sustain friendships, might show a lack of interest in social activities, might engage in inappropriate social responses, might have a lack of awareness of boundaries, might reject expressions of affection such as hugging, might prefer to role play,  and might be naive, suggestible and overly trusty of others. 

The Unofficial Subtypes of Autism

Due to current diagnostic manuals such as the DSM-V (American Psychiatric Association, 2013) and ICD-11 (World Health Organisation, 2019), individuals are generally given a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) regardless of their profiles. Yet, there are unofficial categories used by the autistic community to understand differences better.

Individuals categorised as having Asperger’s syndrome tend to have a higher than average I.Q., and unlike other forms of autism, no speech or cognitive difficulties. However, interpersonal difficulties are prevalent for them, as they struggle to communicate and interact with others. Yet, the symptoms are invisible and difficult to spot. They may also have pathologies which affect their day to day life (Lincoln College, 2022). Asperger’s syndrome is no longer diagnosed (McCrimmon, 2018) but it is still generally seen as a subtype of autism. It is also believed that Asperger’s syndrome is a form of high-functioning autism (HFA) which according to Lincoln College (2022) entails a delay in development, an inability to read facial expressions, a hypersensitivity to light and noise, and a desire for socialisation without understanding how to effectively do it. Nevertheless, HFA is not diagnosable, although it is also recognised by autistic populations. 

Individuals categorised as having Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) tend to have intersubjective difficulties and to avoid the demands of everyday life. This profile is not an universally recognised form of autism by healthcare professionals, however, it is still generally used by autistic populations. According to the National Autistic Society (n.d.), an individual with this profile ‘(a) resists and avoids the ordinary demands of life; (b) uses social strategies as part of avoidance, for example, distracting, giving excuses; (c) appears sociable, but lacks some understanding; (d) experiences excessive mood swings and impulsivity; (e) appears comfortable in role play and pretence; and (f) displays obsessive behaviour that is often focused on other people’. Furthermore, Lincoln College (2022) states that these individuals have an anxiety-based desire to remain in control all the time, and can become aggressive if they feel they are not in control. They also seem to get stressed out if anything is expected of them. However, if they feel comfortable, they seem normal. 

Individuals labelled as having Kanner’s Autism also known as ‘Classic Autism’ are described as having impairments in communication, and a fixation on activities with restrictive or repetitive behaviour such as hand flapping. The criteria for this autism profile is: (1) an impairment in the use of non-verbal skills, poor eye contact, and an inability to interpret body language; (2) inability to make and maintain friendships; (3) inability to enjoy interests or share activities; (4) inability to respond appropriately to emotion in others; (5) delay in, or complete lack of language development; (6) repetitive use of language; (7) fixation on a particular interest; (8) inflexibility to change routines; and (9) repetitive physical movements (Lincoln College, 2022). However, this is not diagnosable. 

Individuals diagnosed as having atypical autism are those whose pattern of behaviour fits most but not all of the criteria for other forms of autism. It can often be undiagnosed for many years as individuals tend to be given this label later in life. 

Finally, individuals categorised as having Savant syndrome have skills which are uncommon to most people, as well as having the general characteristics of autism. Among the extraordinary abilities seen in savant autism are being able to mentally solve complex mathematical problems, having great memory for specific details of something, high quality artistic skills, and outstanding musical talent. 

Diagnosing Autism

The advantage  of diagnosing Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is that individuals and their families can find as much information as possible about the condition and engage in psychoeducation, which can foster a sense of relief. The diagnosis might help the individuals have more clarity about their difficulties, and might give them more insight into potential comorbidities or wrong diagnoses. Moreover, a personalised care plan with strategies can be devised for ongoing support in all sectors. Nevertheless, a disadvantage of diagnosis is that individuals have to live with the stigma (i.e. negative stereotyping) associated with psychiatric labels, and how the label can affect their relationships and lead to prejudice and discrimination. Furthermore, another disadvantage is that individuals might become depressed with the fact that autism has no cure. They might also experience more adverse circumstances as a result of having a diagnosed disability, and all these negative variables might lead the individual to internalise the label and to embrace the maladaptive behaviours associated with the label which shapes their identity (Lincoln College, 2022). 

Diagnosis is usually done through a person’s GP; however, a paediatrician, a speech and language therapist, an educational psychologist, and/or a specialist psychologist might also need to be involved; and sometimes this multidisciplinary approach can take years before a diagnosis is given (Lincoln College, 2022). Moreover, information for diagnosis is also gathered from relatives, teachers and friends of the individual presenting with symptoms. The individual might be observed as he or she conducts activities and skills might be tested. Furthermore, professionals working with people with autism must take on board the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE; n.d.) guidelines. These specifically state that anyone working with autism should be skilled and competent and have tactful communication skills (Lincoln College, 2022). 

There are several factors that influence the diagnosis of autism: (1) culture— behaviours classed as ‘abnormal’ by a society might bring attention and concern to others. Some countries might perceive different behaviours as ‘symptomatic’, whilst others might see the same behaviours as completely ‘normal’. Also, stigma might become a barrier to diagnosis; (2) age— even though the symptoms of autism can be spotted when the individual is 2-3 years old, many professionals refuse to make a diagnosis until later on. However, some professionals are also reluctant to diagnose adults; (3) sex— males tend to get a diagnosis of autism more than females. Some believe that this is due to how different the characteristics manifest, with girls being more able to hide the symptoms; (4) parental attitudes— some children might not get diagnosed because their parents cannot effectively spot the symptoms, or they might ignore these manifestations out of fear of being judged. Alternatively, parents might insist to the family GP that the child has a problem even if such is not the case; (5) coexisting conditions— autism often has mental and physical comorbidities, making it more difficult to pinpoint the exact cause for specific behaviours, and making diagnosis more complicated; and (6) genetic factors— autism has a genetic link that runs in families. 

Furthermore, there are also barriers to diagnosing autism such as a lack of local services for autistic people, which means that a formal diagnosis with the necessary multidisciplinary specialists is not always possible as a GP might have limited knowledge of the condition. This might subsequently lead to individuals not being diagnosed for a long time, which might prevent them from wanting a diagnosis in the future. It can also lead to individuals not having a documented developmental history, which can affect the process of diagnosis.  Moreover, another barrier to diagnosing autism is how subtle some of the symptoms can be, and how subjective the interpretation of these symptoms also is (Lincoln College, 2022).

Why People Do Not Report Domestic Abuse

There are many barriers to disclosure of domestic abuse. One reason why many individuals stay in abusive relationships and/or do not report domestic is because of their own subjective feelings such as fear of consequences if they leave the relationship (e.g. dependencies), grief which manifests as feelings loss for the relationship they wanted and/or thought they had, denial of what is actually happening to them, self-blame for the abuse they are receiving (perpetrators tend to blame the victim), shame about what others might think if they found out about the individual’s situation, and guilt over their inability to prevent or stop the abuse, as well as of others witnessing the abuse (e.g. children). Furthermore, another reason why individuals do not report domestic abuse, is that they feel that the local authorities will not take them seriously (many women do report it and perpetrators still get away with their crimes), so they experience subjective feelings of hopelessness that ‘nothing would get done anyway’. 

Another reason why people do not report domestic abuse is due to societal perceptions. The way society is known to perceive and deal with victims is awful. Individuals can experience fears that no one will believe them, or that there will be impunity. They might have no faith in justice due to personal experiences, or/and exposure to high profile cases where victims were torn apart either by the criminal justice process or by the media and tabloids. Furthermore, societal perceptions of gender mean that men will feel ashamed to disclose their experiences. Similarly, homophobic perceptions lead to LGBTQ+ individuals hiding their experiences due to their private sexual orientation. And, cultural perceptions can lead to all sorts of subjective reluctance to report domestic abuse, as individuals might be afraid of repercussions, embarrassment, or honour-based abuse. 

Apart from all of the above, there are several identifiable factors that affect the disclosure of domestic abuse. These are: 


These are generalised subjective beliefs that individuals have about the world, which influence how they perceive others. Because there are so many misconceptions and false stereotypes of victims of domestic abuse, such as that they are weak, poor, and submissive women without education and living in social housing; many people might be unable to relate to this, and therefore they might find it more difficult to identify their experiences as a domestic abuse; or they might feel that no one will believe them because they do not fit the stereotype. Furthermore, since there is so much stigma associated with these misconceived stereotypes, individuals might not want to be perceived in such a way, and so might not disclose their experiences. Finally, those who do relate to the stereotype might feel that it is normal because of their circumstances to report the abuse, and might feel hesitant to disclose due to how they believe they are perceived. All these misconceptions can lead to victims isolating, and losing hope.  


Because of the stigma associated with the word ‘victim’ (i.e. stereotypes), individuals do not want the label ‘victim’ added to their subjective identity, even if indeed they are victims. They might subsequently fear other associative labels such as ‘weak’, ‘stupid’, ‘dramatic’, ‘crazy’ or ‘bad mother’. 


Many victims are aware of the stigma, and feelings of shame come with this. They might rather stay in that relationship than risk becoming stigmatised (e.g. men might feel that people will make fun of their masculinity for speaking up). 


Victims might fear that due to the current awful status of justice in our society, they will be discriminated against if they disclose their experiences of domestic abuse. They might also fear that others will attribute negative and unfair stereotypes to them, or fear that they will be excluded or marginalised as a result of their seeking support from their social network and/or community. 

Victim Blaming

Finally, because of the toll that domestic abuse has on victims, individuals experience subjective feelings of self-blame. They might already have been constantly blamed by their perpetrators and might fear that other people will also blame her.  Moreover, some cultural traditions do blame women for making decisions such as leaving an abusive relationship, and so victims might genuinely get blamed by relatives or their community if they disclose their ordeal, making it less likely that they will seek support (honour-based abuse). 

In conclusion, there are many reasons why people do not report domestic abuse, and many factors which prevent victims from disclosing their ordeals. Stereotypes and the stigma created by these is a major theme when it comes to lack of disclosure. The system at times fails victims, and the dark figure of crime is ever present.
