In this blog, I've been discussing advanced brain dysfunctions that people struggle to understand or notice.
"Understanding Advanced Brain Dysfunctions"
I am Aoi Hashima, an occupational therapist working in Saga Sumai and Fukuoka. One of the sequelae of stroke is higher brain dysfunction. Of all those who read my blog, yourself...
"Advanced Brain Dysfunction: Rehabilitation of Social Behavioral Disorders"
I am Aoi Hashima, an occupational therapist working in Saga Sumai and Fukuoka. I have heard directly from people who are not paralyzed after a stroke but still have high sequelae of brain dysfunction and have also visited their families.
When the brain is damaged by stroke, traffic accident, or encephalitis, not only limb paralysis, but also memory impairment, language impairment and other symptoms will appear.
Among them, higher levels of brain dysfunction may cause symptoms that are difficult for patients, their families, and medical staff to notice.
Higher brain dysfunction is an administrative term that refers to cognitive impairments such as memory impairment, attention impairment, executive dysfunction, and social behavioral disorders that lead to difficulty adjusting to daily life and social life.
Among them, regarding "social behavior disorder", you need to think "What kind of behavior are you taking?" I think thinking is very important.
Among the "strange behaviors", "troubling behaviors" and "incomprehensible behaviors" seen by people around, there may be "help signals" from people with higher brain dysfunction.
By asking "Is there something in the background that causes this behavior?", we might be able to see "social behavioral disorders that arise in behavior."
This time, I want to write a blog that also focuses on the importance of understanding the background of social behavior disorder.
Belief that the behavior presented may be a sign of SOS
If you have high levels of brain dysfunction, such as memory, attention, or executive dysfunction, you may experience the following symptoms.
✔ I feel uneasy when the surroundings are noisy
✔ I can't find the notes I should write
✔ I make mistakes because I don't know the order of things
✔ I can't say what I want to say
Such symptoms can be caused by people who "notice they're in trouble" or "don't realize they're in trouble."
If the person "realizes they're in trouble," they may panic trying to deal with it, or develop new behaviors due to their inability to control their emotions, which may manifest as "social behavior disorder."
□ I feel uneasy when the surrounding environment is noisy↓
□ I'm distracted, I can't do what I want, I'm irritable, yelling at people around me
□ I can't find the notes I should write↓
□ I can't find the memo, so I'll keep looking until I find it
□ I failed because I didn't know the order of things↓
□ I don't know the order, stop work, I panic
□ I can't say what I want to say↓
□ I don't speak well and the other person doesn't understand, so I repeat loudly and incoherently
Symptoms in black letters are those that are difficult for those around you to understand.
Symptoms in bold letters are examples of symptoms that appear on the surface due to symptoms that are incomprehensible to those around them.
From the point of view of the people around me, I find it difficult to understand why the red letters appear.
Obvious behaviors like "frustrated person", "repeated person", "panic person", "loud person" may stand out.
However, when something appears on the surface in the form of action, thinking it's a "distress signal", it will be an opportunity to find the cause.
I think it's important to look for triggers to take action and find ways to cope.
At the end
This time, I've written about my usual views on social behavioral disorders that arise in behavior.
I think it's important to understand the context of social behavior disorder.
I want to keep sending messages as far as I can understand accurately because I have a high-level brain dysfunction that is incomprehensible.
