Errors in Anticipation in Social Phobia
Predicting refers to predict or guess an event from any sign or sign with predictive value. The advance may be wanted or unwanted, positive or negative. Fits any kind of expectation. We caution you that we win the lottery, we increase the salary, or that the weather is fine if we go to the beach, but if we can preveerlo as possible. We can even, if it is in our hand, attempt it, make it possible. Prevent, forestall, means hinder, prevent an effect, either by avoidance, or if not possible, by preparing a defensive strategy. If rain threatens, we avoid going out or carry an umbrella, just in case.
The provision of a risk involves a strategy to overcome it, without substantially alter our plans.
Risk prevention involves avoidance. This well know insurance companies, also called forecasting. They cover a risk so that, given basically does not change the situation and circumstances of the sufferer. If a house is burning money account to another.
Prevention means avoiding the risk.
Prevention is a way to forecast and therefore are not exclusive. The second does not necessarily imply a willingness to act or omission determined, compared to expectations, the first if. It is not about to face a situation exceeding the risk or living with them, how to prevent its occurrence.
Prevention extreme puts more emphasis on what you do not want to pass, that in achieving what you want to happen. Or put another way, if there are conflicts between one thing and another is chosen first. Abuse prevention would reduce the probability of occurrence of a risk to zero, as a prerequisite to engage in an action.
In a way denotes an intolerance or hypersensitivity to certain risks, prevention order, and a feeling of helplessness, fear, suspicion, apprehension deal with situations where it might arise. Low hazard potential behaviors successfully removed.
Prevention is a relevant or appropriate, which aims to offer simple measures can significantly reduce the likelihood of risk and, once made, forget about it until it is revealed. At the risk remaining lives. Prevention should not be more expensive, in any sense that the harm to be avoided. Prevention and generates relevant reassuring confidence.
An example: If we leave, we take some basic precaution: Check the condition of the car, seek a good driver (rest, no drugs) and respect the traffic rules. These measurements give us security and confidence that allows us to relax and focus on something else: the landscape, casset music, conversation with fellow traveler, and so on., And maintain a floating attention on driving to detect and respond to any eventuality. Without the above measures of risk awareness car accident we would be more tense, uncertain.
There is a wrongful prevention or disadvantage, characterized by the attempt to exhaust anticipatoriamente every realization of the potential risk to their specific circumstances and their consequences in every moment of development of the action.
This is to avoid being surprised, be warned, before any possibility degradatoria, implying greater definition to imagine anything that does not fall into the impossible. This leads us to be constantly in an attitude of “prevent” a military term used to indicate a state of high alert and tension for action uncertain and threatening because it can happen from one moment to another. Nothing, however natural it may seem, is irrelevant, you can hide a trap into which, ideally, should be anticipated. Therefore, neutral and irrelevant stimuli under suspicious attitude and suspicion become predictors of a threatening situation (generation of indicia), creating alarm.
Unlike prevention relevant, irrelevant once established, does not generate security, relaxation and confidence, and can focus on something else.
Returning to the example: If we leave home we ensure the good condition of the car, try to be in good physical and mental (although concern at worst, we could not sleep well), we respect the traffic rules, but also , calculated as road, or before, the thousand and one possibilities for something to happen: – What if a tire bursts? ‘I’ll go to 90 miles per hour. – What if that truck in the curve above I check? – I reduce and hopefully out of it. – What if I get sick or I need air? Who says I can not pass any of this? … And so at all times. The list is so long that we feel that something or other will happen if a miracle does not remedy it, not us, that we are overwhelmed, we can do. Obviously we have not enjoyed driving, or landscape, or music, nor have we talked to the partner. We may be sore, something giddy, white, and the scare in the body. At worst a pending curve if, as we guessed in advance, the truck was approaching the dividing line, we have come too far right without seeing the gravel and we skidded, even though the truck was perfect for his side. Another event that we must take into account in advance for the next trip will not be that if we do not we forget this, I do not see and we get on the Surprise.
The experience of prevention (if relevant) generates peace, security and relaxation, can lead to abuse it as a mechanism of self when you want to achieve the same objectives.
Abuse prevention involves an excess in the calculation of risks, a process of generating evidence, or conversion of neutral signs warning signals by altering its meaning, and a process of self-observation or care autoenfocada; factors commonly are inter-related.
To break this method, there are several techniques, cognitive restructuring, relaxation techniques, self-instructional stop thinking, get in touch with the here and now, view the confrontation with feared situations positively or posit that reality is and fantasy in our predictions or anticipations.
As soon as we stay in touch with this and jump to the future with catastrophic dyes, we enter the cycle of anticipatory anxiety
