Bullies are part of folklore and stories for centuries. They exist and everyone knows someone or the other who is a bully. Bullies exist in schools, colleges, work places and even in public transport like buses or trains. They are known by their loud, obnoxious behavior and their picking of targets to bully. That classical model of bullying has entered cyber space and internet for a long time now. Cyber bullying is equally damaging to the psyche as the traditional form of bullying. 

For this post, we asked some trained psychologists at MonerAlo.com, the best psychology clinic in Kolkata, about the harmful effects of cyber bullying among the most vulnerable: teenagers. With social media use rampant and reckless, teenagers put out a lot of information about their personal lives on the internet. That includes pictures, contact details and glimpses into their lifestyle and choices. Anyone who expresses opinions different from the popular, and henceforth accepted norm, are subjected to cyber bullies, broadly called trolls.

No one online is free from cyber bullying. Celebrities with millions of followers are also trolled and bullied. However, for teenagers, the bullying can get extremely personal. It will have a deep negative effect on the fragile mind and ego of a teenager. It gives rise to low self esteem and inferiority complexes. It can wash away confidence, motivation and sometimes, the will to live. Cyber bullying also happens in groups, where an entire gang of friends go up against one of their own who has defied the collective opinion. In such cases, the victim finds themselves friendless and without any support system whatsoever. 

Parents need to be very vigilant about teenagers subjected to cyber bullying. You will know about it only if you study the unusual behavioral patterns of your child. Mood swings, fading academic grades, hopelessness written large on the face and general disinterestedness about life, all of these are typical syndromes of cyber bullying. Sometimes the lifestyle of a teenager and their family can become an object of ridicule for cyber bullies. As a parent, you may not have the psychological training to bring out the facts from a rebellious teenager.

Consulting a psychologist in Kolkata is your safest and best option. With proper counselling, victims of cyber bullying can be brought back to lead normal lives.   


FOMO.png

If you check out the full form of FOMO, there are high chances that you are not a millennial! Anyone on social media platforms for a large part of the day, or college goers, even school children know the word FOMO: Fear of Missing Out. While the terminology may give away the feeling that this is not a ‘real’ problem, it is actually so, say the psychologists of Kolkata. This perceived fear of not being part of a particular social circle, or a group, can be nerve-wrecking for youngsters, especially teenagers. 

FOMO

FOMO can have disastrous consequences in academia. Students who are constantly checking their smartphones for updates often neglect their studies. The worst part is that often they don’t care at all. They are so clued in about what is happening all around on the internet that they don’t really have a life, so to say. When they are faced with a real problem, they are unable to do anything constructive to solve it. Rather, their mind is always on what they are missing out. 

The psychological effects of FOMO can be quite damaging. It can turn young, impressionable minds into one that is constantly afraid and looking over their shoulders. They have very little self esteem and they fear that if they miss out, it will reflect poorly on their personality. They are also worried about what people will think about them if they miss out on something as trivial as the latest gossip in town. Moreover, they are deeply insecure about how friends view them. They are concerned that their friends are sharing something or the other among themselves, by leaving them out of the circle. 

You may think that FOMO is something that affects youngsters. Actually older persons can have a deep sense of missing out, too. You will find people checking news channels or newspapers continuously. That is also a case of FOMO. Is there actually any need of knowing every news story coming out if the matter doesn’t concern you directly? Psychologists say that these feelings of being left out, or abandoned, can have far-reaching consequences. If not treated earlier, they can give way to depression. 

If you have a strong FOMO, consult a psychologist on MonerAlo.com today. 


What-is-Split-Personality-Disorder-and-Who-is-Affected_.png
21/Oct/2019

Dissociative identity disorder or DID is popularly known as split personality disorder. The reason for this moniker is that there are more than one self within the body of the person affected. There can be two or more ‘alter’ egos present in the body of a single person. The affected person switches between these different and disparate personalities at uncertain times of the clock. The switch can happen after seconds, minutes or even days. No one can predict it, not even the person affected. 

Split personality disorder has been the theme of several movies across the globe. Sometimes, there are multiple personalities present in a single person, which is termed multiple personality disorder. Therapists are able to bring out these various personalities through hypnosis. During the process, the affected person may reveal personalities which are totally different from each other, or from the person who is affected by it. There are differences of gender, race, ethnicity or even location. 

It cannot be said for certain as to who is affected by split personality disorder. There is no direct link or pattern visible for psychologists to make a calculated guess. But psychologists in Kolkata at MonerAlo.com say that the victims are usually those who have suffered repeated mental, physical or sexual abuse at some point in their early life, usually before the age of 6. The repeated brutality triggers the mind to develop personalities that are antithesis to the real one. It is like a defence mechanism to overcome the extreme trauma faced by the victim. 

There are reported instances of violence committed by persons affected by split personality disorder. The violence may be directed towards a person or group which may be the tormentor of the person. The violence may even be directed towards the self in response to their inability to fight back. That is why people suffering from split personality disorder require immediate treatment. It is not just the switching phase which is dangerous. Such people can experience severe headache and loss of time. When they switch, they are unable to recall anything they do during that phase when the other personality takes over.

Trained and professional psychologists in Kolkata should be consulted to help the affected person cope with this form of mental ailment.
