Summary 5 Biological methods and techniques

Summary 5

The biological interventions mentioned in Chapter 4 can be extended to comprehensive biological methods if you use the knowledge from Chapter 1, 2 and 3. You can apply this knowledge systematically to pedagogic and community work. By applying these methods within training, upbringing, education, politics and social action, you use the operation of our biochemical housekeeping to solve problems that ask a heavier approach than the interventions from Chapter 4. It is important that you integrate the biochemical knowledge within the analysis of the initial situation. You look at a different way to the problems of youth gangs, football hooligans and fundamentalist violence. Under these problems you discover concrete behavior that is caused by the almost uncontrollable chaos of biochemicals in the body. A chaos that often is enhanced by artificially ingested biochemical substances like alcohol, medicines and (hard) drugs. You can also make methodical use of knowledge around the biological factor regarding long-term problems in education and mental health. As a result, a number of well-established methods will be seen in a new light; you can recognize video home therapy and Jo Frost as a biological method, because this therapy has a very direct influence on the prefrontal cortex and on the body’s own biochemistry. Computer games can play an important role by channeling aggression within a safe environment. With computer games you can develop self-control skills in a playful way as an exercise, and so enhance the PFC via TCA. In addition, you can develop methods that are based on well-known television programs in which young people learn to take their life into their own hands again, like Youth at Risk. Interventions from Chapter 4 on hugging can be developed into a complete method, such as Shantala massage, the method of Tactil Ryg, and the method of Touching Child Care. With these methods you can prevent children in a class from bullying each other. Finally, at the end of this chapter it turned out that a dog, a cat or a rabbit can form the basis of a biological method and that even prisoners (sentenced to death) thereby again feel that they have a heart. We discovered that all these interventions and methods are based on evoking and regulating hormones and neurotransmitters such as adrenalin, serotonin, oxytocin, phenyletylamin, dopamine, vasopressin, and many more that you can find in this book.
