The 6 Signs of High Functioning Depression
 
07:05
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy High functioning depression isn’t an actual diagnosis, it’s just more catchy than the real diagnostic term, “dysthymia” is. Dysthymia (also called Persistent Depressive Disorder) is described in the DSM as “depressed mood for most of the day, for more days than not, as indicated by either subjective account or observation by others, for at least two years,” and includes the presence of two or more of the following symptoms, “Poor appetite or overeating; insomnia or hypersomnia; low energy or fatigue; low self-esteem; poor concentration or difficulty making decisions; feelings of hopelessness.” People with dysthymia may still be able to get up, go to work or school, and from the outside look just fine. But inside they are exhausted, frustrated, and feel terrible about their situation. To find out if you are struggling with high functioning depression or dysthymia, here are some of the most common symptoms: Avoiding social situations: Often when we are able to push ourselves to function in our daily life, it leaves no extra energy for socializing. We may find ourselves cancelling plans, just wanting to be alone a lot, and withdrawing from those we love and care for. Feeling extra irritable: When we aren’t feeling our best we can have little patience for people in our lives. We may find everyone is getting on our nerves, and we could even start fights with those we love. Notice if everything people do around you seems to be frustrating and annoying. Are you constantly tired? Are you barely able get all that you need to get completed every day and feel wiped out afterwards? Are you always tired, when you used to feel like you had so much energy? It could be dysthymia Do you struggle to concentrate? Reading and re-reading emails still not knowing what it said. Is it hard to focus, even to watch TV? Many of my clients will tell me that they struggle to even follow a plot in a movie or tv show, and will have to go back to rewatch portions of it. This can be so frustrating and make school and work that much more difficult. Are you using an unhealthy coping skill more and more? This could be drinking more alcohol, zoning out in front of the TV or playing a video game, or even over or undereating. If you find yourself slipping back into old (or even new) unhealthy habits, please reach out and talk to someone about it. Getting a handle on these issues early allows us to find healthier coping skills to replace them more easily. Constant worry about past or future: I believe this sign occurs because anxiety and depression are close friends. Do you struggle to get to sleep because you can’t stop going over that stupid thing you said years ago? Maybe you can’t sleep because you are so worried about tomorrow or next week? If you always feel like you are unable to control and stop those negative, worry focused thought cycles, it could be high functioning depression. WHAT CAN WE DO? If you found yourself nodding along as I talked about these 5 common signs, please reach out for help. Those with dysthymia or high functioning depression often go untreated for years! Don’t let that be you! The sooner we reach out and get some help the less time we will spend feeling bad. For many people all that is needed is talk therapy, while others find medication to be the most helpful. Whatever helps you, make sure you speak up, reach out and get it as soon as possible. Cause it can and will get better.

What is Borderline Personality Disorder?

Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Try Online Counseling: http://tryonlinetherapy.com/katimorton If you are struggling, consider an online counseling session with a licensed professional at BetterHelp. They offer a cost friendly alternative to traditional therapy. ​I hope you all find this helpful and gives you hope for finding the support you need at a price you can afford. Thank you to BetterHelp for sponsoring this video! Borderline Personality Disorder, Self-Harm and Eating Disorders. In this video I talk about their relationship. Many of the symptoms of BPD lead us to acting out in SH or ED. Many of you will find that you can associate with some of these symptoms, but remember that you must be properly diagnosed by a medical professional and exhibit at least 5 of the symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). If you have been diagnosed with BPD the best thing for you to do is to purchase a Dialectical Behavior Therapy workbook (I recommend a good one on my website in the Amazon books section at the bottom of all my pages) and also I recommend that you find and join a Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBP) group in your area. Help Techniques: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL14F50E070238DF4E Borderline personality disorder is a condition in which people have long-term patterns of unstable or turbulent emotions, such as feelings about themselves and others. These inner experiences often cause them to take impulsive actions and have chaotic relationships. Causes, incidence, and risk factors The causes of borderline personality disorder (BPD) are unknown. Genetic, family, and social factors are thought to play roles. Risk factors for BPD include: Abandonment in childhood or adolescence Disrupted family life Poor communication in the family Sexual abuse This personality disorder tends to occur more often in women and among hospitalized psychiatric patients. Symptoms People with BPD are often uncertain about their identity. As a result, their interests and values may change rapidly. People with BPD also tend to see things in terms of extremes, such as either all good or all bad. Their views of other people may change quickly. A person who is looked up to one day may be looked down on the next day. These suddenly shifting feelings often lead to intense and unstable relationships. Other symptoms of BPD include: Fear of being abandoned Feelings of emptiness and boredom Frequent displays of inappropriate anger Impulsiveness with money, substance abuse, sexual relationships, binge eating, or shoplifting Intolerance of being alone Repeated crises and acts of self-injury, such as wrist cutting or overdosing Signs and tests Like other personality disorders, BPD is diagnosed based on a psychological evaluation and the history and severity of the symptoms. Treatment Many types of individual talk therapy, such as dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), can successfully treat BPD. In addition, group therapy can help change self-destructive behaviors. In some cases, medications can help level mood swings and treat depression or other disorders that may occur with this condition. Expectations (prognosis) The outlook depends on how severe the condition is and whether the person is willing to accept help. With long-term talk therapy, the person will often gradually improve.

QUIET BORDERLINE! What is it? Mental Health, BPD & Kati Morton Borderline Personality Disorder?
 
08:20
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Now BEFORE you watch this, please check out my first video about Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPopjuKuweg&list=PL_loxoCVsWqwRYQO-u0iW_bjL_DpWBbd8 That will help you better understand what BPD is so that you can then add on the idea of "quiet borderline" and what that may look like and feel like. So the traditional way that we see and experience BPD is a very outward expressing or anger out way. We can be very volatile in our relationships and even struggle with suicidality. We worry a lot about others leaving us and almost cannot trust them to stay! So we can get very upset and hurt. We express this outwardly and it can be very hard on us and those who we are in relationship with. However, there are many of us who may relate to the symptoms of BPD, but do not lash out or express any emotion outwardly. We may instead, express it inward, and take it out on ourselves solely. Obviously, everyone expresses their diagnosis differently, so you may identify with all or none of this. Just keep in mind that this is why we need to see a professional and get a proper diagnosis before we jump to any conclusions. Those of us with a "quiet borderline" may have really needed a better or more nurturing parent. This can lead us to feeling like we don't really exist or that what we need and want is not acceptable. Another portion of BPD that could be seen as a "quiet borderline" trait are the areas of impulsivity. We may binge eat or use drugs or alcohol to cope, both of which are things that do to harm ourselves and could be done in private without sharing these struggles with anyone. So you can see how it can differ person to person, and some of us may not have the traditional BPD experience. Please keep in mind that no matter what diagnosis we are given, we still need to ask questions and express your own feelings and symptoms so that our treatment team can better understand what we are going through, and make sure we are getting the proper support!

5 Signs You Are Seeing a BAD Therapist! psychology & mental health with Kati Morton
 
03:03
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Just like any job, some people are good at it, while others are not. Many of you have told me that you either didn't click with a therapist or they did (or didn't do) some things that really left you feeling bad or hurt. Today I would like to offer up 5 signs that you are seeing a bad therapist or that your therapist isn't a good fit. 1. You feel like you have to prove things because they act like they don't believe you. I have heard from some of you that when you expressed what you were struggling with, your therapist said things like, "oh that's not too bad," or "are you sure it's really that hard for you?" If you feel that you have to prove just how sick you are or how hard something is for you, you need to find someone else. A therapist is supposed to be there to support and help, not minimize and invalidate. 2. They don't remember anything you have said from previous sessions. Do you always have to retell them things? Do they never remember what it is you do for a living? Or do they give you homework and never follow up on it? As a therapist I know how easy it is to take 5 minutes before a sessions to read through the homework I gave last session and where we left off. If they can't do that for you, time to find someone else. 3. They allow you to text, email, call, etc anytime you need....and they reply quickly. Unless this is part of a safety plan because we are struggling with suicidal thoughts, they cannot be reachable at all time. This not only causes therapists to burn out, but it also stops you from practicing any of the things you are working on in therapy. A therapist should be a support, not a crutch. 4. You just chat like friends, and don't really do any therapeutic work. If you have done a lot of work in the past and now you just feel like you don't have anything to talk about, YAY! That means you don't need therapy anymore, and can slowly stop coming! In truth, that is the whole goal of therapy! Go you! If you haven't ever worked on anything together, but the conversation is just so easy and friendly that you keep coming back to chat, you need to find someone else. Therapy isn't a social experience. I know that sounds bad to say, but therapy is hard and is supposed to challenge us and help us grow. If we are just talking like we are old friends, that doesn't achieve any of that. Time to find someone who can help us move forward. 5. They talk about themselves, A LOT! This is YOUR time, not theirs! They should be in their own therapy, so that they have a place to talk about their issues. Using your hour to do that is wrong, and you should find someone else to see immediately! I know it can be hard to find the right therapist, and someone that we click with. My hope is that these red flags can help you better find a good therapist who is going to be there for you to work on the stuff you need to work on. Remember, therapists are people to, and some are great at their jobs while others are not. I want each of you to be able to find someone you can work with who is going to challenge you and help you grow. xox MERCH! https://store.dftba.com/collections/kati-morton PATREON https://www.patreon.com/katimorton WEBSITE http://www.katimorton.com TWITTER http://www.twitter.com/katimorton FACEBOOK http://www.facebook.com/katimorton1 TUMBLR http://www.katimorton.tumblr.com PINTEREST http://www.pinterest.com/katimorton1 HELP!

What is DBT Therapy? (dialectical behavior therapy) - Mental Health Videos with Kati Morton
 
06:30
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Today I talk about DBT or Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. There are 4 modules in DBT and the first one I already have a video on!! That is Mindfulness! So check that video out! The second module is Distress Tolerance. This entails distracting and they use the acronym ACCEPTS. The next module is Emotion Regulation, and this can help us be in more control of our emotions using many CBT like tools. This will have us work on things like recognizing what thoughts are hardest for us to manage and how we react to the things that happen around us. It will try and help us notice our reactions and the thoughts that create them so we can be better prepared to tolerate the feelings next time. Last but not least is Interpersonal Effectiveness. This will help us better communicate our emotions to those who are important to us. We will learn tools to express how we are feeling instead of always reacting and lashing out. So grab a workbook and join a DBT group, and let's get started!!! VIDEO SCHEDULE...

BIPOLAR DISORDER vs BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER - Mental Health with Kati Morton
 
06:17
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy The differences between bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder can be hard to see sometimes. In today's video I talk about the differences, boiling it down to bipolar being more about episodic mood fluctuations and BPD being more consistent and pervasive. BPD, along with all other personality disorders, it must be deeply ingrained and affect our interpersonal relationships. It is also important to note that you can have BPD and bipolar disorder at the same time. The only caveat to that is that BPD must not be diagnosed while struggling with an untreated bipolar episode. The reason for that is so that we can tell where the symptoms are coming from and ensure a proper diagnosis. I know that there are still going to be questions about these diagnoses, but that's why we see professionals! You should not have your own DSM, that will only make things more unclear for you. It is important to see a mental health professional, be properly assessed and diagnosed. I hope you found this helpful! As always, please comment and share! xox BORDERLINE VIDEO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPopjuKuweg&list=PL_loxoCVsWqwRYQO-u0iW_bjL_DpWBbd8&index=2 BIPOLAR VIDEO: https://youtu.be/O8N_mRPo2gc?list=PL_loxoCVsWqx8Fo1kUZbyQGIPoRBKwqEg BIPOLAR PLAYLIST: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL_loxoCVsWqx8Fo1kUZbyQGIPoRBKwqEg WEBSITE http://www.katimorton.com TWITTER http://www.twitter.com/katimorton FACEBOOK http://www.facebook.com/katimorton1 TUMBLR http://www.katimorton.tumblr.com PINTEREST http://www.pinterest.com/katimorton1 HELP!

What is Bipolar II Disorder? Mental Health with Kati Morton
 
06:17
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Today I talk about Bipolar II disorder. I know that many of you have asked me to talk more about bipolar disorder and how II differs from I, so here we go! So bipolar II disorder is when we never have mania. Never! Instead we struggle with Hypomania, which is a lower grade mania with very similar symptoms (like increased goal oriented behavior, pressured speech, decreased need for sleep, etc). We also must have had at least one (in our lifetime) major depressive episode. Now in order to be diagnosed with having had a major depressive episode we must have an increased or decreased need for sleep, increased or decreased appetite, anhedonia, lethargy, etc for at least 2 weeks. Now in my experience most people come in to see me or see help in general when they are in their MDD episode. This is because being depressed feels terrible and we don't like it. Feeling hypomanic is usually something we like because we feel great, are getting a lot of things accomplished and have energy. I know that many people were upset that I said Mania is something people like, because sometimes it can be uncomfortable. Just like anything in life, everyone experiences things differently. However, mania and hypomania are usually things that people like to have. Mixed, rapid cycling (between mania and MDD), and depression are not comfortable and we want the feelings caused by them to stop. If you feel that you may struggle with this or any other mental illness, please seek professional help. There are many treatment options out there, and the sooner we seek help the better the outcome. I hope you found this helpful! Please share this video on any of your social media sites, because the more we share, the less stigma is associated with mental illness. Have a wonderful week!

The 3 Types of Narcissists
 
08:01
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy There is only one diagnosis for Narcissism and that is Narcissistic Personality Disorder. In short it is defined by the DSM as “a pattern of grandiosity, need for admirations, and lack of empathy.” In order to be diagnosed with NPD these patterns must be pervasive (meaning they are happening all throughout our lives - not episodic). They must have 5 of the following 9 criteria: 1. Has a grandiose sense of self importance 2. Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love. 3. Believes that he or she is “special” and unique and can only be understood by or should associate with other special or high-status people 4. Requires excessive admiration 5. Has sense of entitlement 6. Is interpersonally exploitative (will take advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends) 7. Lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings or needs of others 8. Is often envious of others or believes that they are envious of him or her 9. Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes People believe that although there is only one diagnosis for narcissists, there are 3 distinct types. The exhibitionist: This is the most classic type of narcissist. They do not feel insecure about themselves, instead they feel amazing. Thinking that they are better, more attractive, and smarter than those around them. They can be extremely rude and off putting to those around them. They call this type the “exhibitionist” because they are always trying to get people to notice them and pay attention to what they are doing. As upsetting as this type can be, they are consistent in their behavior, so it does become predictable. The Covert Narcissist: These types of people tend to be more insecure, and are more likely to gaslight those they are in relationship with. It’s very likely that someone with these traits grew up in an abusive home or possibly had a narcissistic parent or sibling. Because they feel so insecure, they will look for better or more important people to connect themselves with. They also tend to not follow through with what they said they would do and then try to act like they are the victim. This type of narcissist tends to be more passive aggressive, and can be kind and caring in public but abusive and mean in private. This can make it really difficult on those they are in relationships with. The Toxic Narcissist: This type is the worst. They not only want people to think they are the best, but they want everyone else to know they are inferior. They thrive on putting others down, and have no empathy for the destruction they leave in their wake. Some research even shows that these types of people enjoy hurting others (can overlap with antisocial personality disorder). They thrive on creating chaos and drama and although they will state that they “hate drama” they somehow always manage to be in the center of it. Like most mental illnesses and especially personality disorders, they come from somewhere. Meaning that something happened to us when we were developing that caused us to act the way we act now.

What is Dysthymia - Persistent Depressive Disorder - Mental Health with Kati Morton
 
06:48
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Today I talk about dysthymia or what is now called persistent depressive disorder. What differentiates this from MDD is that this is a low grade depression that persists for 2 years or more! That is why it is so important that we begin talking about it, so that people don't have to suffer in silence for so long! This can present itself as lack of motivation, irritability, anhedonia, insomnia, hypersomnia etc. The most important distinction I want to make today is that when this occurs in children, it may look more like ADD or ADHD. Children with dysthymia can be irritable, struggle in school, struggle to focus, get easily frustrated, etc. It is often misdiagnosed as ADD or ADHD and therefore can cause people to suffer with this depression for long periods of time. If you feel that you or someone you love is suffering with this, please seek professional help! You are not alone! Many people struggle with this and the sooner we get help, the better the outcome! So please speak up and make sure you get the help you deserve. The DSM-5, the 5th edition of the DSM, was released in May 2013 and includes a number of changes. In this edition, dysthymia is replaced by persistent depressive disorder. This new condition includes both chronic major depressive disorder and the previous dysthymic disorder. The reason for this change is that there was no evidence for meaningful differences between these two conditions Empirically-based treatments, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, have been researched to show that through the proper course of treatment, symptoms can dissipate over time. A combination of antidepressant medication and psychotherapy has consistently been shown to be the most effective line of treatment for people diagnosed with dysthymia.

ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Try Online Counseling: http://tryonlinetherapy.com/katimorton If you are struggling, consider an online counseling session with a licensed professional at BetterHelp. They offer a cost friendly alternative to traditional therapy. ​I hope you all find this helpful and gives you hope for finding the support you need at a price you can afford. Thank you to BetterHelp for sponsoring this video! Today we talk about the 5 signs of emotional abuse. They are: 1. Degradation: This is when someone puts you down all the time and /or makes jokes at your expense. This can make us second guess our own feelings and experience. 2. Controlling or dominating: Do you have to plan your whole day around what they think is okay? Do they control your money or time? Many people will struggle to think on their own if this has been going on for a long time. 3. Accusing or blaming: Is nothing ever their fault? Do they blame any issues they have on everyone else in their life? Are they super sensitive to any personal criticism? 4. Neglect: Parents may give their children the silent treatment or stone wall them when they have done something they see as wrong. They may not meet any of our basic needs as a punishment for wrongdoing. 5. Enmeshment or codependence: This is when someone sees you as an extension of themselves. They will overstep boundaries and pull you into their situation or tell you inappropriate things about their life. They struggle to see any differentiation between themselves and another person. Remember -- emotional abuse is never your fault. In fact, your partner may just be trying to control or manipulate you into staying in the relationship. Here are some characteristics: • Using economic power to control you • Threatening to leave • Making you afraid by using looks, gestures or actions • Smashing things • Controlling you through minimizing, denying and blaming • Making light of the abuse and not taking your concerns about it seriously • Continually criticizing you, calling you names, shouting at you • Emotionally degrading you in private, but acting charming in public • Humiliating you in private or public • Withholding approval, appreciation or affection as punishment MY FREE WORKBOOKS: Self-Harm http://goo.gl/N7LtwU Eating Disorder Workbook http://goo.gl/DjOmkC My video schedule...

What is PSYCHOSIS? Kati Morton discusses Hallucinations, Delusions, Disorganized Thinking and more
 
06:20
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Today I talk with you about psychosis. What is it and what does it look and feel like to those who suffer. Since there is so much information to cover about this topic, I only go over the different types of psychosis and what those types look like. Help us caption & translate this video! http://amara.org/v/Gnap/ There are 5 types of psychosis that are talked about in the DSM 5. They are as follows: 1. Delusions: there are fixed beliefs that cannot be changed even when there is comforting evidence. There are many types of delusions, but the most common types are persecutory and grandiose. 2. Hallucinations: these are things that we perceive, that have no real external stimuli. These can be things we see, hear, feel, taste, etc. Auditory hallucinations (hearing things that are not there) is the most common. 3. Disorganized Thinking: This is noticed through someone's speech. Due to their disorganized thinking, they cannot speak coherently. It can sound like they are hopping from one topic to another without any connection to what you are talking about. When I worked in the hospital we would call this "word salad" because it was all tossed together without any clear connection. 4. Grossly disorganized or abnormal motor behavior: They can struggle with goal-oriented behavior, be oddly silly or childlike, or extremely agitated for no clear reason. This can make everyday activities very difficult because there are organized steps we have to take to get things accomplished (ie. go to the grocery store for food to make a sandwich, get home, make sandwich, eat it, and clean up). Catatonia is also mentioned under this type and this is when we have a lack of response to stimuli. We may not move at all and some even hold poses for a long period of time. Can also be mute or stare for long periods of time. 5. These are the most common, however, they are the least noticeable. Negative symptoms are most commonly a) diminished emotional expression or blunted affect. b) avolition, which is when we don't show any desire to do anything of purpose. There are many other types of negative symptoms, but those are the most common. Many disorders have psychotic features as a subtype of the diagnosis and there are many psychotic disorders like schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, brief psychotic disorder etc. If you or someone you know is struggling with psychosis please get help. See a psychiatrist asap! The sooner we stop or diminish the psychosis the better chances we have of our brain healing from it. So please share this video! Please reach out!

PTSD - Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder - Mental Health with Kati Morton
 
05:21
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Today I talk about PTSD. What it is and what our treatment options are. PTSD is something that can be diagnosed to anyone over the age of 6, and all that needs to happen is that we have to have been in a situation that made us feel like our life was in danger. That's it! So if someone tells you that only veterans have PTSD, show them this video and tell them that they are an idiot. ;) There are a ton of diagnostic criteria for PTSD, and I will touch on them all. However, due to the time constraints, if you want more info on them, you can search them individually. 1: You must have exposure to trauma 2: Flashbacks and other intrusive symptoms 3: Avoidance of stimuli 4: Cognitive struggles. When you struggle to remember the specifics of the event 5: It must last for at least one month, and it gets worse over time. Those with PTSD do not get better as time passes! That is very important to note! It actually gets worse for them, and the flashbacks or dissociations become more and more frequent. Treatment options are: CBT (trauma focused): what they do in this type of therapy is work with you on relaxation training (like deep breathing and muscle relaxation skills), emotion regulation (identifying feelings) and having tools to manage all that we may feel, working on a trauma narrative and processing (discussing the overwhelming events in the form of a story, and processing the associated feelings), and finally they work with you on learning cognitive coping strategies (identifying and replacing negative thoughts). Family Therapy: This is SO IMPORTANT! Things that happen to us effect those around us too! It can be so helpful to have a safe place to communicate about what we are going through and help bring us closer together. Medication: Many people who have PTSD also find themselves struggling with anxiety and depression. Therefore, medication has been found to be very helpful for for those who are struggling. If you are interested in looking into that further, please contact your doctor. EMDR: This stands for Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing. You follow someones finger, light or even a buzzer in each hand. This helps our brain reprocess the traumatic information and help us more quickly heal from it. Bottom line, please reach out for help if you feel you may be suffering from PTSD. Like I said, it only get worse over time, and there are amazing treatment options out there to help us heal and live the life we want and deserve! xox ⬇️ LINKS BELOW ⬇️ __ ▶️ FIND KATI ◀️ OFFICIAL SITE ➡️ http://www.katimorton.com TWITTER ➡️ http://www.twitter.com/katimorton FACEBOOK ➡️ http://www.facebook.com/katimorton1 TUMBLR ➡️ http://www.katimorton.tumblr.com PINTEREST ➡️ http://www.pinterest.com/katimorton1 __ ▶️ HELP! ◀️ SUBTITLE VIDEOS ➡️ http://goo.gl/OZOQXi ➡️ WE NEED YOUR HELP!

How to overcome Childhood Emotional Neglect
 
09:38
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy When we grow up in an emotionally neglectful environment it can cause us to believe that our thoughts, feelings, and desires don’t matter. This can in turn cause us question anything we experience and struggle to trust how we feel. We can find it difficult to let people in, and constantly worry what others think about us. Those who have suffered from emotional neglect often don’t even know it was happening, because this type of neglect isn’t something we can easily see. Many parents who were emotionally neglectful give their children every material thing they need, and from the outside look like amazing parents. But if their child needs any emotional support or encouragement from them, they are nowhere to be found. HOW TO RECOVER: 1. Start noticing/tracking your feelings: Print out feelings charts and track them each day. It may be hard at first, so start with the easier ones (often tired, sad, and worried are easier to begin with). It's normal for us to not know how we feel all the time, but give yourself the chance to listen to your body and acknowledge all that you may be feeling. 2. Try describing the feeling word you selected without using that exact word (ex. I am feeling energized, excited, and bubbly - when describing happy) 3. Begin noticing your needs: What are the things you need physically to survive? How about things you need emotionally? When do they come up? Take your time thinking about these, and even pretend that someone you love had those needs to. What would you think about them then? 4. Self-Care! I know I talk about this a lot, but when it comes to healing from CEN self-care is our way of nurturing and caring for ourselves. Are there things you wished your parent had done for you? Let’s make time to do those things for ourselves. 5. Accept help and support from others: It can be hard to let people in when we weren't supported as a child, but we need other people in our lives who can help us through the tough times. Ensure these people are worth having around, and that they are trust worthy, and then slowly let them in. 6. Set healthy boundaries: This is SO IMPORTANT! It’s okay to say no! You don’t have to do anything that you don't want to, and people will understand and respect you more because of it.

We will avoid many situations for fear of embarrassing ourselves or that they will not like us. This can affect our work life, personal life and even just our ability to be out in any social situation. There is a high co-morbidity rate with Agoraphobia because we often don't like to leave our homes for fear of being embarrassed or even just disliked by someone. This can tie so closely with many other anxiety disorders as well as our eating disorders or self-harm struggles, so it is very important that a professional properly diagnoses us. VIDEO SCHEDULE...

Mental Health Videos with Kati Morton Intrusive thoughts are unwelcome involuntary thoughts, images, or unpleasant ideas that may become obsessions, are upsetting or distressing, and can be difficult to manage or eliminate. When they are associated with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), depression, body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), and sometimes attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), the thoughts may become paralyzing, anxiety-provoking, or persistent. Intrusive thoughts may also be associated with episodic memory, unwanted worries or memories from OCD, posttraumatic stress disorder, other anxiety disorders, eating disorders, or psychosis. Intrusive thoughts, urges, and images are of inappropriate things at inappropriate times, and they can be divided into three categories: "inappropriate aggressive thoughts, inappropriate sexual thoughts, or blasphemous religious thoughts" VIDEO SCHEDULE...

Thank you to BetterHelp for sponsoring this video! Dissociation, what is it, how do deal it? Mental Heath Videos with Kati Morton Dissociation is a term in psychology describing a wide array of experiences from mild detachment from immediate surroundings to more severe detachment from physical and emotional experience. It is commonly displayed on a continuum. The major characteristic of all dissociative phenomena involves a detachment from reality -- rather than a loss of reality as in psychosis. In mild cases, dissociation can be regarded as a coping mechanism or defense mechanisms in seeking to master, minimize or tolerate stress -- including boredom or conflict. At the nonpathological end of the continuum, dissociation describes common events such as daydreaming while driving a vehicle. Further along the continuum are non-pathological altered states of consciousness. More pathological dissociation involves dissociative disorders, including dissociative fugue and depersonalization disorder with or without alterations in personal identity or sense of self. These alterations can include: a sense that self or the world is unreal (depersonalization and derealization); a loss of memory (amnesia); forgetting identity or assuming a new self (fugue); and fragmentation of identity or self into separate streams of consciousness (dissociative identity disorder, formerly termed multiple personality disorder) and complex post-traumatic stress disorder. Dissociative disorders are sometimes triggered by trauma, but may be preceded only by stress, psychoactive substances, or no identifiable trigger at all. The ICD-10 classifies conversion disorder as a dissociative disorder. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders groups all dissociative disorders into a single category. Although some dissociative disruptions involve amnesia, other dissociative events do not. Dissociative disorders are typically experienced as startling, autonomous intrusions into the person's usual ways of responding or functioning. Due to their unexpected and largely inexplicable nature, they tend to be quite unsettling.

To The Bone | Netflix Movie Review
 
06:59
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy 2017 Netflix movie review: To the Bone follows Ellen (aka Eli) a girl with anorexia nervosa as she struggles with recovery, recovery programs, and a group home. The actor Lily Collins who previously had an eating disorder seemingly lost a lot of weight to play the role of Eli or Ellen. For that reason, I thought that NetFlix was in the wrong. I found the portrayal of eating disorders (EDNOS, Binge Eating, Bulimia, and Anorexia) to be very accurate, the ED behaviors were on full display and I think that is a good thing if someone wants to really see what an eating disorder is truly like. I liked Keanu Reeves as Dr. Beckham, his tough love style is in line with what I think is needed in most cases. I wasn't a big fan of the Luke & Ellen love story part of the film, it didn't seem necessary to me. Susan, played by Carrie Preston was excellent at showing support but mostly not knowing what to do. Pearl with the feeding tube showing us what is possibly right around the corner for Ellen was heart breaking. Judy (Lily Taylor) as her biological mom was powerful when she tells her "she is ok with accepting that she may want to die" was honest and very hard to watch. Overall, as you can tell, I really liked this film. I only wish that the lead role was not played by someone who in the past has had an eating disorder. Actors lose and gain weight for roles all the time, but when someone has a history of an eating disorder, they should not do this, it is VERY dangerous and I don't support it. Marti Noxon does an excellent job of directing and writing in an effort to showcase eating disorders, their damage, and ultimately she leaves us with a glimmer of hope, which is what we all want when it comes to eating disorders... Hope. ****PLEASE READ**** If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, please call a local emergency telephone number or go immediately to the nearest emergency room. ------------------------------------------ BIG THANK YOU to my Patreon Patrons!

Do therapists get attached to their clients?
 
04:30
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Is it possible that a therapist can become attached to the client? How do therapists handle that? The short answer to this is yes, we can get attached to our clients, but it is imperative that we deal with it ethically and therapeutically. We are supposed to go see our own therapist about it, and consult with other professionals in the field about it as well. If we are unable to move past it and find our own issues getting in the way of our clients therapy, we should refer them to someone else. Legally know that if your therapist refers you to someone else, they legally are supposed to give you 3 referrals. These referrals should be good referrals meaning that the therapist is taking new clients, and is close to the same area, etc. I hope that this helps! Oh, and here are the definitions I promised: Transference: When we place our emotions (usually from childhood) onto someone else (usually a therapist). Countertransference: The reaction from the therapist in response to the clients transference.

What is Depersonalization / Derealization Disorder - DPDR - Mental Health with Kati Morton
 
06:19
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy First I think it's important to understand that difference between depersonalization and derealization. Depersonalization is when we feel we have lost touch with ourselves. This could feel like we are watching ourselves do something or act in a certain way and we don't have control over it at all. Derealization is when we lose touch with our surroundings. Could feel foggy or sort of dream like as if we are in a dream and cannot wake ourselves up. This can be very difficult to properly diagnose. Therefore it is important that you see a professional who understand dissociative disorders to ensure you are properly diagnosed and treated. We link this disorder and other forms of dissociative disorders to trauma. I believe this to is because in order for us to survive and keep living after the trauma our brain has to take us out of ourselves and the situation. That way we can get some mental distance between ourselves and the scary or life threatening situation. But don't worry! There are treatment options available! 1. Anxiety medication may help with this because dissociation has been linked to anxiety levels rising. 2. Talk therapy! I know it's terribly difficult but we find that talking through the trauma in detail to be the most successful way for us to process it and move on. 3. Grounding techniques! These can be used in any treatment situation and they simply help us fight our minds urge to dissociate so that we can stay present and work through it. Please be patient with your process! You can overcome it and it will get better!

5 misunderstandings about Bipolar Disorder -  Kati Morton treatment therapy anxiety mood stabilizers
 
05:56
Today I talk about the 5 common misconceptions about bipolar disorder. 1. That there are only manic or depressive episodes in bipolar disorder 2. That bipolar II is a "milder" form of bipolar disorder 3. That mood swings during the day mean you have bipolar disorder 4. That all bipolar patients have mania 5. That people with bipolar disorder are unreliable I hope this video helps clarify what bipolar disorder is and what it can look and feel like for different people. Please share this video so you can help stop the stigma and misconceptions surrounding bipolar disorder. About Bipolar disorder: Also known as manic-depressive illness, is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks. Symptoms of bipolar disorder are severe. They are different from the normal ups and downs that everyone goes through from time to time. Bipolar disorder symptoms can result in damaged relationships, poor job or school performance, and even suicide. But bipolar disorder can be treated, and people with this illness can lead full and productive lives. Most scientists agree that there is no single cause. Rather, many factors likely act together to produce the illness or increase risk. Genetics Bipolar disorder tends to run in families. Some research has suggested that people with certain genes are more likely to develop bipolar disorder than others. Children with a parent or sibling who has bipolar disorder are much more likely to develop the illness, compared with children who do not have a family history of bipolar disorder. However, most children with a family history of bipolar disorder will not develop the illness. Brain-imaging tools, such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and positron emission tomography (PET), allow researchers to take pictures of the living brain at work. These tools help scientists study the brain's structure and activity. Some imaging studies show how the brains of people with bipolar disorder may differ from the brains of healthy people or people with other mental disorders. For example, one study using MRI found that the pattern of brain development in children with bipolar disorder was similar to that in children with "multi-dimensional impairment," a disorder that causes symptoms that overlap somewhat with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. This suggests that the common pattern of brain development may be linked to general risk for unstable moods. Signs & Symptoms People with bipolar disorder experience unusually intense emotional states that occur in distinct periods called "mood episodes." Each mood episode represents a drastic change from a person’s usual mood and behavior. An overly joyful or overexcited state is called a manic episode, and an extremely sad or hopeless state is called a depressive episode. Sometimes, a mood episode includes symptoms of both mania and depression. This is called a mixed state. People with bipolar disorder also may be explosive and irritable during a mood episode. Extreme changes in energy, activity, sleep, and behavior go along with these changes in mood. Doctors diagnose bipolar disorder using guidelines from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). To be diagnosed with bipolar disorder, the symptoms must be a major change from your normal mood or behavior. There are four basic types of bipolar disorder: Bipolar I Disorder—defined by manic or mixed episodes that last at least seven days, or by manic symptoms that are so severe that the person needs immediate hospital care. Usually, depressive episodes occur as well, typically lasting at least 2 weeks. Bipolar II Disorder—defined by a pattern of depressive episodes and hypomanic episodes, but no full-blown manic or mixed episodes. Bipolar Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (BP-NOS)—diagnosed when symptoms of the illness exist but do not meet diagnostic criteria for either bipolar I or II. However, the symptoms are clearly out of the person's normal range of behavior. Cyclothymic Disorder, or Cyclothymia—a mild form of bipolar disorder. People with cyclothymia have episodes of hypomania as well as mild depression for at least 2 years. However, the symptoms do not meet the diagnostic requirements for any other type of bipolar disorder.

What is Major Depressive Disorder?
 
06:26
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Today I talk about what MDD is and how it is diagnosed. The DSM states that you must have depressed mood and anhedonia in order for MDD to even be considered. Then you must have at least 5 of the following for a 2 week period. 1. Depressed mood most of the day 2. Diminished pleasure or interest 3. Increased or decreased appetite 4. Increased or decreased sleep 5. Psychomoto agitation or retardation 6. Fatigue everyday 7. Feeling worthless or having inappropriate guilt 8. Diminished ability to think or concentrate 9. Recurrent thoughts of death If you find yourself having of these symptoms please reach out for help! The sooner the better, and there are so many people out there willing to listen and help, so make that call and set up that appointment!! Treatment options are therapy and medication. We find that the best results come from a combination of both, but this is your treatment and your recovery, so you get to choose what is best for you. Talk therapy and CBT therapy are found to work best. This not only allows us to vent and gain come thoughtful insight, but CBT helps us to change out faulty thinking and inject some much needed behavioral changes into our lives. So get to know your depression. How long does it last? How bad has it been? When did it start and what does it feel like to us? That way when we call our doctor or therapist we can offer up all of this information to ensure we get the proper diagnosis and treatment. ⬇️ LINKS BELOW ⬇️ __ ▶️ FIND KATI ◀️ OFFICIAL SITE ➡️ http://www.katimorton.com TWITTER ➡️ http://www.twitter.com/katimorton FACEBOOK ➡️ http://www.facebook.com/katimorton1 TUMBLR ➡️ http://www.katimorton.tumblr.com PINTEREST ➡️ http://www.pinterest.com/katimorton1 __ ▶️ HELP! ◀️ SUBTITLE VIDEOS ➡️ http://goo.gl/OZOQXi ➡️ WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Do YOU have GENERALIZED ANXIETY??

ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Try Online Counseling: http://tryonlinetherapy.com/katimorton If you are struggling, consider an online counseling session with a licensed professional at BetterHelp. They offer a cost friendly alternative to traditional therapy. ​I hope you all find this helpful and gives you hope for finding the support you need at a price you can afford. Thank you to BetterHelp for sponsoring this video! Generalized Anxiety Disorder is when we have excessive worry or anxiety that last for at least 6 months. This anxiety and worry can lead us to feeling restless or on edge, easily fatigued, have difficulty concentrating, irritable, tense muscles, and struggle to get a good night sleep. This anxiety and worry can lead us to feeling restless or on edge, easily fatigued, have difficulty concentrating, irritable, tense muscles, and struggle to get a good night sleep. This anxiety and worry can lead us to feeling restless or on edge, easily fatigued, have difficulty concentrating, irritable, tense muscles, and struggle to get a good night sleep. In adults, this disorder tends to be focused around worry associated with health, finances, and everyday routine life circumstances. In children, this tends to present more as worry about competence (tests and assessments) and the quality of their performance (sports games, musical performances, etc). Although the median age of onset is 30 years old, those who they spoke to stated that they had felt anxious their entire lives. The good news is that there are many treatment options! First is talk therapy and more specifically CBT. This helps us challenge those automatic/faulty thoughts so that we can slowly get back to doing the things we used to do without worry or anxiety. This can take time and lots of therapy homework, but they find CBT to be the best therapy approach. Secondly, medication. I know not everyone is open to trying medication, but they find that CBT with medication gives us the best chance of recovery. Usually, SSRI's or SNRI's (otherwise known as anti-depressants) are used first. If those don't help at certain intense moments, they may prescribe a benzodiazepine to be used only in acute situations due to its habit forming tendencies. So please be careful if you are prescribed these and do not use them every day. Lastly, there are some lifestyle changes you can make. Eating regularly and from a well-balanced diet can help. Also, cutting back on coffee and alcohol can help us sleep more soundly and get rid of any symptoms that may feel like anxiety. Getting exercise and taking time to meditate can help us better manage any of the anxiety symptoms we struggle with. I hope you found this helpful! GAD is very common and something many people struggle with daily. The sooner we get help for this the better, so please share!

The Pros & Cons of Being a Therapist || mental health w Kati Morton
 
05:44
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Going through the pros and cons of being a therapist was actually a good exercise for me! It helped me make sure I am still doing what I love and that the pros outweigh the cons. Hooray I still love what I do and my pros really outweigh my cons! Cons: We don't make a lot of money, we work odd hours in order to accommodate our clients, we have to take care of ourselves regularly! I know it isn't a real con, but it's definitely something we need to take into consideration prior to becoming a mental health professional. Pros: It is so incredibly rewarding to see your clients grow into the person you knew they could be, and being there during that time is just amazing. The second pro is that the work is actually fulfilling! I get to help people and ever after a long day of work, I feel good and like I have helped out in some way. The third is that the work always changes. Each week, each hour with people is different, so I don't ever get bored or annoyed with what I do. The fourth and final pro I will talk about today is that it is always a challenge! Not only do my clients challenge me to learn more, figure out more about their issues or concerns, but each and every one of you challenges me to be a better therapist.

Why Does Your Attachment Style Matter?
 
10:24
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Attachment styles have been discussed since John Bowlby talked about them in the late 1960’s. He believed attachment to be all or nothing, meaning that we either have a healthy attachment or we don’t. Research has gone on to show that there is much more to attachment, and we now conclude that there are 4 main styles Articles I read: https://www.simplypsychology.org/mary-ainsworth.html https://www.verywellmind.com/harry-harlow-and-the-nature-of-love-2795255 Different Attachment Styles: 1. Secure: When a child has this type of attachment they will feel easily soothed and safe when with their primary caregiver. If they are distressed, they will turn towards their caregiver, or seek them out in some way. This attachment is formed when a child knows they can count on their caregiver to be there for them when they cry, soothe them, and care for them. They will use this secure attachment as a safe base from which they can explore all that’s around them. 2. Insecure-Avoidant: Children do not attach to their caregiver because they don’t feel they can count on them. This usually means that their primary caregiver either hasn’t been there for them when they needed it or has been rejecting or dismissive of their needs altogether. When a child is in distress and has this type of attachment they will not seek contact with their primary attachment figure. In fact, they won’t even show a preference between their primary caregiver and a complete stranger. 3. Insecure Ambivalent: Children with this type of attachment will be clingy and needy of their caregiver, but when the caregiver comes to their aid they are rejecting of them and not easily soothed. 4. Disorganized: Children with this type of attachment will show a confusing mix of attachment behaviors and may even appear to be confused or disoriented. They believe that this attachment style is caused by inconsistency from their caregivers. Meaning that a parent may be soothing and helpful, but also fear-inducing and hurtful. What does this mean for us as adults? Researchers have linked poor attachment to PTSD, ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder) and CD (Conduct Disorder), as well as low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety. They even find that we can struggle to have happy and healthy relationships with others as we get older. So what do we do? Treatment options etc: 1. Working with a therapist to process through any trauma or upset you have in your past 2. Paying attention to how you respond or react in relationships and noting which things you would like to change or work on 3. Being mindful of your emotions - using feelings charts, the tools in DBT called "the story of an emotion", and working on describing certain emotions. 4. Notice what in your relationship triggers some of the more uncomfortable emotions. Bring this situation up in therapy so we can work on emotion regulation techniques like back burner, reducing your vulnerability to that trigger (PLEASE & HALT), building positive experiences (focus on the positive or good things each day). 5. Also, notice if you are not letting people in because you are afraid of what may come up. Begin by talking about this with your therapist. Avoiding any close relationship so that attachment issues don’t come up, doesn’t make anything better. 6. Medication can help too: ssri’s and snri’s have been used to help with depression or anxiety that may exist as a result. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t57DCRFZA8A https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9Mv98Gr5pY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LM0nE81mIE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hk5dxn5dj2M A BIG THANK YOU to my Patreon patrons!

(Part 1) Adult ADD an honest discussion w/ Mark Suster & Kati Morton
 
05:04
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Today I sit down with Mark Suster to talk about his experience with Adult ADD. Mark didn't find out he had ADD until he was 40 years old, but felt like everything in his life made more sense after finding out. We talk about medication and his experience with Adderall. When he chooses to use it and when he relies on his other tips and tricks to get him through. Mark works very hard to make sure his sleep and diet are in line to help him better manage his symptoms. When those things fail, Adderall helps him push through long meetings or depositions and maintain focus. He also talks about how ADD does have a genetic component, and that he has urges his siblings to get their own children tested. The most important part of this interview is to know that you are not alone, and having ADD does not mean you cannot be successful and do what you want with life. It's more about you understanding ADD and how you can better manage your symptoms. The more we know and the more we share about ADD, the less stigma there will be associated with it. So please share and talk to a professional if you feel that this is something you struggle with. xoxox The book Mark speaks of is "Delivered From Distraction" by John Ratey.

How is attachment related to trauma?
 
06:42
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy In past videos I have talked about attachment styles, and reactive attachment disorder, and you can click the links in the description to learn more about those topics! But today we are talking specifically about trauma and how (or why) it’s linked to attachment issues. All attachment disorders fall under the DSM umbrella called “Trauma and stressor-related disorders” meaning that attachment issues are most often caused by trauma or stress in childhood. This umbrella also covers reactive attachment disorder, disinhibited social engagement disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), acute stress disorder, and adjustment disorders. They also placed this chapter near anxiety disorders, OCD & related disorders, and dissociative disorders because they believe there is a close relationship between all of those diagnoses. Now let’s get into why trauma and attachment are connected. Attachment is defined as: the emotional bond that is formed between objects in order to establish a sense of security and safety. And although attachment begins in infancy, the need for “attachment relationships” continues throughout our life, meaning that once we have a safe and secure attachment to our mother or primary caregiver, we will also seek out friends and other family members to support us and help us figure out who we are. Even if we are traumatized, having safe and secure attachment to many caregivers in our life can help us be more resilient and overcome the trauma more quickly. That in a nutshell is why attachment is linked to trauma. When we are children and something scary happens, we run to the person or persons who can make us feel safe. Having that secure and healthy attachment to a caregiver gives us that safe place, but if we never had that connection, we don’t know where to go to feel safe. And in turn, the world can become a very terrifying place. Many of my patients who grew up with an emotionally neglectful, or abusive mother or father have reported that when something scary happened they found themselves frozen, unable to move or fight there way out of it. Being in that frozen state leaves us more vulnerable to trauma. If we are unable to fight or run away from a scary or potentially harmful situation, we could get hurt. I also want to add in that even if our primary caregiver is there for us and we healthfully attach, if we are then subjected to repeated trauma (at the hands of someone else) we can feel that no one and nowhere is safe, and in essence exhibit all the symptoms of someone who never had a healthy attachment. Just something to keep in mind, because attachment issues can be exacerbated by trauma or even created by it. I know that’s a lot of information to take in, but I hope that helps you better understand the link between trauma and attachment. In a way not having a healthy attachment can leave us more vulnerable to trauma, and being traumatized can affect our ability to feel connected and safe with our primary caregiver.

Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Try Online Counseling: http://tryonlinetherapy.com/katimorton If you are struggling, consider an online counseling session with a licensed professional at BetterHelp. They offer a cost friendly alternative to traditional therapy. ​I hope you all find this helpful and gives you hope for finding the support you need at a price you can afford. Thank you to BetterHelp for sponsoring this video! Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a psychotherapeutic approach that addresses dysfunctional emotions, maladaptive behaviors and cognitive processes and contents through a number of goal-oriented, explicit systematic procedures. The name refers to behavior therapy, cognitive therapy, and to therapy based upon a combination of basic behavioral and cognitive principles and research. Most therapists working with patients dealing with anxiety and depression use a blend of cognitive and behavioral therapy. This technique acknowledges that there may be behaviors that cannot be controlled through rational thought. CBT is "problem focused" (undertaken for specific problems such as anger ) and "action oriented" (therapist tries to assist the client in selecting specific strategies to help address those problems).

BPD vs  CPTSD: What's the difference?
 
07:44
C-PTSD or Complex post traumatic stress disorder occurs when someone is repeatedly traumatized (ie. in war, abused for long periods of time, etc) and it can make relationships and life afterward very difficult. They state that those who suffer from complex PTSD have more issues with: 1. Emotion regulation 2. Forgetting traumatic events completely 3. Self-perception (feel very ashamed and guilty for struggling with this and not feeling "okay" like everyone else). 4. Distorted perceptions of their perpetrators 5. Relations with others (they may isolate or struggle to trust people) 6. Their own sense of meaning (may feel hopeless and struggle to have faith). The treatment is pretty much the same as it is for PTSD, however there is an intense focus on interpersonal difficulties. They focus on this because those with repeated trauma have more trouble trusting, not lashing out, feeling safe, and managing their feelings of shame and guilt. Now BPD or borderline personality disorder is a pervasive disorder where we can show patterns of instability in our relationships, struggles with self image, and impulsivity. In order to be diagnosed with BPD you must have 5 of the following 9 criteria: 1. Fear of abandonment 2. Unstable relationships 3. Unstable sense of self. 4. Impulsive, self-destructive behaviors 5. Recurrent suicidal behavior, gestures, threats or self injurious behavior. 6. Extreme emotional/mood swings 7. Chronic feelings of emptiness 8. Inappropriate or intense & explosive anger 9. Feeling suspicious of people or out of touch with reality (severe dissociative symptoms). By simply going through the 2 diagnosis you can see how much symptom overlap there is. Therefore many people get misdiagnosed with BPD when it should be PTSD and visa versa. Also, many people could meet the criteria for both diagnosis (recent studies show that 24% of those with PTSD also had BPD & 30% of those with BPD also had PTSD). So let’s get into the main differences between the 2: 1. BPD does not require a traumatic event to be diagnosed and C-PTSD does. 2. The treatment plan for C-PTSD is to focus on healing or processing through the traumatic event(s) while BPD’s goal is to resolve any injurious urges and learn how to better manage our emotions. 3. While both diagnosis do show symptoms of emotion dysregulation, they are expressed very differently. In C-PTSD it is expressed through emotional sensitivity, reactive anger and poor coping skills (alcohol or drug abuse, etc). BPD on the other hand while it may show some of those signs, it’s much more common for someone with BPD to struggle with suicidal thoughts and self injurious behavior when experiencing emotional dysregulation. 4. In BPD most patients do experience some fear of abandonment, and that is not part of any criteria associated with PTSD. I could honestly go on and on about the difference and similarities, but the important thing to remember is that only YOU know your symptoms best. Keep track of them, bring that information into your next appt with your therapist or doctor. That way we can ensure that you are getting the treatment that is right for you. Because as I just mentioned, the goals of treatment for BPD versus C-PTSD are very different, and therefore we need to make sure our diagnosis fits. Also, if you are worried that you struggle with BPD please look into Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and if you are concerned you may have PTSD please look into seeing a trauma specialist.

What is Social Anxiety Disorder? Mental Health Help with Kati Morton treatment scared school
 
05:49
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Social anxiety is a discomfort or a fear when a person is in social interactions that involve a concern about being judged or evaluated by others. It is typically characterized by an intense fear of what others are thinking about them (specifically fear of embarrassment, criticism, or rejection), which results in the individual feeling insecure, not good enough for other people, and/or the assumption that peers will automatically reject them. Developmental social anxiety occurs early in childhood as a normal part of the development of social functioning, and is a stage that most children grow out of, but it may persist or resurface and grow into chronic social anxiety. People vary in how often they experience social anxiety and in which kinds of situations. A psychopathological (chronic and disabling) form of social anxiety is called social phobia or social anxiety disorder, and is a chronic problem that can result in a reduced quality of life. It is approximated that roughly 40 million American adults ages 18 and older (18.1%) have an anxiety disorder. The difference between social anxiety and normal apprehension of social situations is that social anxiety involves an intense feeling of fear in social situations and especially situations that are unfamiliar or in which one will be watched or evaluated by others. The feeling of fear is extremely intense in these types of situations, occasionally causing one to become so worried that he or she feels anxious just thinking about them and will go to great lengths to avoid them. Overcoming social anxiety depends on the person and the situation. In some cases it can be relatively easy—just a matter of time for many individuals—yet for some people social anxiety can become a very difficult, painful and even disabling problem that is chronic in nature. The reasons are unknown. Social anxiety can be related to shyness or anxiety disorders or other emotional or temperamental factors, but its exact nature is still the subject of research and theory and the causes may vary depending on the individual. Recovery from chronic social anxiety is possible in many cases, but usually only with some kind of therapy or sustained self-help or support group work.

Do therapists ever have moments when they don’t know what to say or if someone brings up something you didn’t expect. How do you handle that? What if a session takes an unexpected turn? Do you ever have problems identifying with a client or identify too much?

What's the DIFFERENCE? Choosing YOUR Mental Health Professional
 
12:20
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Today I define what a counselor, licensed professional counselor, therapist, social worker, psychologist, and psychiatrist are. When you are struggling with depression, anxiety, an eating disorder, or other various mental health issues; it can be hard to know who to get help from. I talk about their level of schooling and what they are able to do in practice, and how it will feel different to someone going to see them for help. As you will hear, most of these mental health professionals do very similar things, and to you (the client) it won’t feel much different. Licensed Professional Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists, Social Workers, and Psychologist pretty much do the same thing. They will see you in their office for 50 minutes, listen to you and offer some helpful tools and techniques. The most important thing to remember when picking a mental health professional is that you like them, feel they hear you and understand you, and you know you are working together to get better. That’s it! It doesn’t really matter how much schooling they had or how long they have been practicing, you just need to like them. I also think it’s important to know what their specialties are so that you know you are getting the help you need most. I hear from many of you that feeling like you aren’t getting any better or being given helpful tools can be really frustrating! Finding someone who specializes in what you are struggling with can help lessen the likelihood of that happening. I hope you found this helpful! I know finding the right professional can be scary, difficult, and often confusing. I hope this video helped clear up any confusion around who can do what and who we can look to for help.

Histrionic personality disorder is a mental health condition in which people act in a very emotional and dramatic way that draws attention to themselves. Cause of histrionic personality disorder is unknown. Genes and early childhood events may be responsible. It is diagnosed more often in women than in men. Doctors believe that more men may have the disorder than are diagnosed. Histrionic personality disorder usually begins by late teens or early 20s.

REPRESSED MEMORIES? - Mental Health with Kati Morton
 
06:15
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Repressed memories are hypothesized memories having been unconsciously blocked, due to the memory being associated with a high level of stress or trauma. The theory states that even though the individual cannot recall the memory, it may still be affecting them consciously. Since I have worked with clients who have experienced trauma, I know that it's common for them to not remember chunks of their life. It could be a few years that are tough to recall or even whole childhoods that are not clear at all. Due to this, I do believe that repressed memories exist, but I can also see how therapists could take advantage of this and guide client to "remember" things that never really happened. One way of figuring out if our repressed memories are actually true is to find corroborating evidence. I always encourage my clients to talk to a family member or friend who would have been around at that time and see what they remember. This can help validate what it is we think happened. Another way to check ourselves is to note if these memories come up spontaneously. Usually smells, tastes, or even a sound can jog our memory and cause us to recall information that was once forgotten.

What is Learned Helplessness?
 
06:26
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Learned helplessness was something studied in 1967 on 3 groups of dogs. They were all given shocks randomly, and some could escape the shocks while others had no way out (some were let out of their harnesses, others could hit a lever to stop it, etc). The ones that couldn’t get out were then moved into another area with the dogs from the other groups and while the others got away from the shocks (they could jump over a short wall) the ones who couldn’t get away prior, didn’t even try. This learned behavior (the belief that nothing they do will help them get away) is called “learned helplessness” The only way they could get the dogs to unlearn this behavior was to pick them up and move them away from the shock at least 2 times. Then they would do it on their own. In people they believe this could happen as a result of abuse and constantly being stuck in that freeze state. If we cannot get away from the harm coming our way over and over we slowly learn to just be helpless. We don’t fight back, and we just accept our punishment. It has been shown that humans feel depressed when they don’t think they have an power over what happens to them. They did a study where people had to do a task while a loud noise was present. Some people had the ability to turn it off while others didn’t. Those who had the ability to turn it off (whether they chose to or not) performed better than those who didn’t have the choice. I think learned helplessness could be linked to cognitive dissonance, gaslighting and stockholm syndrome. As well as any abusive relationship. What they believe to cure learned helplessness is CBT. Why? Because this behavior only thrives on pessimistic thoughts (that is if the trauma or abuse is no longer happening to us). Those who think things like “This will never change” or “I can’t ever do anything right” are more likely to suffer from learned helplessness and depression. Whereas those who think positively about situations don’t. I think positive self talk is just another tool in our arsenal that helps build resiliency. Being able to see the positive side of a situation can help us better manage it and make it work for us. Overall, know that you do have the power to change your life and how you manage it. Even if we are still in the abusive situation, fighting back against those helpless thoughts with positive ones, and not allowing our mind to spend anymore time in a pessimistic state can not only give us the strength to leave, but also to build ourselves up so that it never happens again. Just like Derek from Veritasium stated in his video, I hope that this video is enough of a reminder that you do have power over what happens to you. You are not helpless. Today's question: I'd love to know your opinion on learned helplessness. Whether or not you believe it's something that strongly affects people and if so the best way to unlearn it. @veritasium did an awesome video on it a while back and i want your take on it.

Are Personality Disorders Different From Mental Illness?
 
04:16
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy A personality disorder defined as: a deeply ingrained and maladaptive pattern of behavior of a specified kind, typically manifest by the time one reaches adolescence and causing long-term difficulties in personal relationships or in functioning in society. Without treatment, the behavior and experience is inflexible and usually long-lasting. The pattern is seen in at least two of these areas: 1. Way of thinking about oneself and others 2. Way of responding emotionally 3. Way of relating to other people 4. Way of controlling one’s behavior Personality disorders are categorized into 3 main groups: 1. Cluster A- which holds the personality disorders that can cause us to act in odd or socially withdrawal. This includes Paranoid PD, Schizoid PD and Schizotypal PD. 2. Cluster B - holds the emotional, erratic or overly dramatic PDs - like Antisocial PD, Borderline, Histrionic PD, and Narcissistic. Cluster C - which holds the more anxious or fearful personality disorder - like Avoidant PD, & Dependent PD. On the other hand, the term mental illness refers to a wide range of mental health conditions: these are disorders that affect your mood, thinking and behavior. Therefore, mental illness is a collective term that refers to around 200 types of mental conditions, which are sub-categorized into 5 main classes: 1) anxiety disorders, 2) mood disorders, 3) psychotic disorders/schizophrenia, 4) eating disorders and 5) dementia. Among all groups, anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness. Many people have mental health concerns from time to time. But a mental health concern becomes a mental illness when ongoing signs and symptoms cause frequent stress and affect your ability to function. In conclusion, a personality disorder is a mental illness, but a very serious one. The reason I say it’s a serious one is because personality disorders are pervasive not episodic. They have been in our lives since we were young, and affect much of our day to day life, not to mention our relationships. Many people argue that the causes of personality disorders differs from other mental health issues, but I honestly think that’s too tricky a thing to conclude. Different people have different coping skills and resiliency. That’s why siblings can go through the same things and come out very differently. We are all unique, and our mental health is not immune from that. That’s why it’s important that we see a professional, be properly diagnosed and get the treatment that works best for our struggles. Know that regardless of what you are suffering from, the sooner we reach out for help and get the assistance we need, the better. All mental illnesses benefit from therapy and medication. So find a treatment that works best for you!

Borderline Personality Disorder is BAD? therapist kati morton talking BPD, psychology & therapy
 
05:55
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Negative videos seem to be going up about borderline personality disorder, specifically therapy, healthcare and mindfulness. I think that because so many people (professionals included) talk negatively about BPD, those of us who struggle with it can feel like it's hopeless and helpless. The truth is that BPD is something you can overcome! Yes it is a lot of work, but if we don't like how we are feeling then we have to do something about it to change it. Right?! It is my opinion that BPD is caused by either a lack of attachment to a primary care giver (mom, dad, grandma, etc) when we are a baby or it is caused by trauma. The attachment struggle can later lead to us trying to "fill" that need by other people in our lives, while also feeling scared that they will leave us too. So we want people around, and we want love and support, but we also fear that we can't trust people to be there for us and so we often try to push them away or even run away ourselves. Trauma can also lead to a lack of trust or feelings of safety. Therefore, our emotions can sort of "come out of nowhere" and we instantly feel scared and unsafe. Both of these situations lead us to feeling scared, not safe or trusting of those around us. That will make relationships very difficult. But does that make you a bad person? Absolutely not. I hope that you found this video helpful. Please share!! Because the more positive and accurate information we have out there the better. xox Videos about BPD: https://youtu.be/zPopjuKuweg https://youtu.be/E56S5cWSvuw Video about DBT: https://youtu.be/hDJi86n9-Rk Video with Hannah! https://youtu.be/KIBiRsK7uBA Website http://www.katimorton.com A BIG THANK YOU to my Patreon Patrons!

What's the Difference Between Suicidal Thoughts & Suicidal Ideation? Mental Health with Kati Morton
 
03:38
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Suicidal thoughts are actually the same as suicidal ideation. I know it can be hard to understand all of the terms therapists and other mental health professionals use, but now that ideation and thoughts are the same. The next part of this question is how to tell our family and friends about it. The truth is that in order to explain what's going on to others, we need to take time to figure out what it is we are feeling. I know you think this kind of sounds silly, but we often "just know" how we feel and then can't verbalize it to anyone. Which can lead us to being more frustrated and upset. If we take time to figure out how it feels to us and what the experience is like (writing it out helps a lot!) then we are better able to tell someone else about it. Also, thinking about what's important for them to know can help, so that we keep our description shorter and to the point. Lastly, when do we need to get help. I linked some of my older videos below with more information on this, but if you are struggling and have any kind of suicidal thought, reach out! You don't have to be at the end of your rope to get support. We all need support sometimes, and finding a therapist (or taking yourself to the hospital if you think you may try to kill yourself) is important.

Pure Obsessional OCD (Pure O) - Kati Morton on mental illness
 
05:50
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy So what is Pure "O" OCD? It is when we have obsessions without the physical compulsions of traditional OCD. These obsessions usually present themselves as intrusive thoughts, images or urges. The reason this is so distressing is because these thoughts usually go against who we are, or what we believe to be right and moral. They are usually violent or sexual in nature and leave us worried that we may actually be capable of acting some of these thoughts out. Due to the distress and upset caused by these thoughts, many with pure "o" will try to avoid any triggers for their thoughts. If they find it happens most when they are driving, they will stop doing that. They will even avoid entire topics or thoughts that have caused an intrusive thought or image in the past. This can be very debilitating and make it very difficult for us to live our lives. Since these thoughts are upsetting and usually violent or sexual, it can also cause some other cognitive compulsions, like rumination. Once we have had these thoughts or images, we then can't stop worrying that we are possibly bad or capable of doing these things. Our mind will argue back and forth causing extreme anxiety. But don't fret, there are treatment options! Lots of them! CBT is a treatment great option, as well as CT (cognitive therapy). These are great because they help us change those terrifying thought cycles that we can get stuck in (rumination as well as avoidance). Also, there is exposure and response prevention therapy or ERP. This helps us be around triggering events or topics and slowly calm ourselves down without using our compulsion. It slowly lessens the anxiety around the obsession and removes the power is has over us. Many people report that SSRI's or SNRI's have helped them, so if you are interested in this, please see a psychiatrist to see if this is an option for you. Lastly, there is a new therapy option called ACT or acceptance and commitment therapy that was created specifically for pure "o" OCD.

What is Psychotic Depression?
 
07:15
Pre-order My New Book Today! ARE YOU OK? http://bit.ly/2s0mULy Defining major depressive disorder and psychosis first is important before we try to understand how they can feel when they are happening at the same time. MDD is when we no longer enjoy the things we used to and we have a marked impairment in our level of functioning for at least 2 weeks. You must have at least 5 symptoms total, but the first two I mentioned must be present. Here's my full video on MDD: https://youtu.be/cX6tA-qsloo Psychosis is not a diagnosis all on it's own. We can be diagnosed with a psychotic disorder, but when we talk about psychosis, we are talking about having psychotic symptoms on top of another diagnosis (like MDD or bipolar disorder). There are 5 types of psychosis: delusions, hallucinations, disorganized thinking, grossly disorganized or abnormal motor behavior, and negative symptoms. Here's my full video on psychosis: https://youtu.be/SD54T12mLTQ The difference between psychotic depression and schizophrenia (which also experiences psychosis) is that the themes of a person with psychotic depression's delusions or hallucinations are focused on depression. They can revolve around feeling worthless, terrible about yourself, and hopeless. In schizophrenia, their delusions or hallucinations tend to be more bizarre or nonsensical in nature (ie. feeling like god is speaking to them through their daily news). As far as treatment for psychotic depression goes, medication in a hospital setting is best. The reason they want us to be in the hospital is because when we are already feeling down and hopeless, adding psychotic symptoms to that increases our risk of suicide. So they really just want you in the hospital to keep you safe until they get the psychotic symptoms under control. What I want you to hear with this video is that the symptoms can go away with proper treatment. I know psychosis can be scary and make us worry that we are losing our minds. But if we reach out quickly and get the help that we need, those scary things we are experiencing can and will go away. So please speak up and reach out! xox ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ****PLEASE READ**** If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, please call a local emergency telephone number or go immediately to the nearest emergency room. ------------------------------------------ BIG THANK YOU to my Patreon Patrons!
