Function of Buffering

Some individuals serve to buffer, or run interference between the individual and the rest of the world. For example, a wife might serve to interface on her husband's behalf in social encounters and thereby protect him from feedback or responses that might feed into his propensity toward suspiciousness. His Cluster A personality disorder (e.g., Paranoid Personality Disorder) would thus seldom be triggered or exposed. Another frequently observed example is that of the individual with Dependent Personality Disorder who is directed as to how to respond to life's challenges and problems by a dominant and controlling spouse. It is not unusual that dysfunctional behaviors become revealed after the loss of the spouse. The degree of the manifestations of a personality disorder often surprise other family members who were unaware of the function served by the lost spouse.

Exploring EFT

Exploring EFT

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. It works to free the user of both physical and emotional pain and relieve chronic conditions by healing the physical responses our bodies make after we've been hurt or experienced pain. While some people do not carry the effects of these experiences, others have bodies that hold onto these memories, which affect the way the body works. Because it is a free and fast technique, even if you are not one hundred percent committed to whether it works or not, it is still worth giving it a shot and seeing if there is any improvement.
