I will certainly try my best, Madame (I’ll admit, it takes much for me to comprehend such things in one spin, also, so I have to read and re-read many times over).
What I had quoted above is the Psycho-dynamic Perspective; Sigmund Freud followed more on the Psycho-dynamic theory when it comes to Schizophrenia. He and other scientists were unsure if they should consider Schizophrenia as having one mental disorder or if it is many mental disorders collided into one.
Regardless however, Freud had considered regression to be a defense mechanism in Schizophrenic patients. Meaning, when trauma is experienced by the Schizophrenic, they regress into a different stage, or reality as a defense mechanism to escape what is perceived as intolerable or unbearable to them.
This typically means Schizophrenics have the ability to escape reality through an earlier phase before trauma existed and that phase is often times - childhood. If you’re lucky, even teen year mentality. Children and teens do have self-centered mentalities, but the point ultimately was to mean, even Sigmund Freud considered Schizophrenia to be … a disease of unconscious disorientation. (Aka, a disorder that is made to confuse the brain so it will refuse to grasp the struggles of reality it finds itself currently living in to avoid further damage, distraught, or distress. Hence allowing the brain to go to the time before trauma was experienced so the brain believes its not actually being harmed, convinced, or tricked).
I hope this makes sense to you. This is typically a long to write lecture that could result in boredom and really, no one wants to read on forever, ha. I’m sorry I couldn’t make it shorter.
