Being taken hostage

leave a comment »

If ever taken hostage, it is good to remember that the hostage taker(s) / terrorists want you alive or you would not be a hostage. Yes, you should plan to escape if possible, but not give so much resistance as to make the captors decide to get rid of the problem and just kill you.

Stockholm Syndrome – Defense Mechanisms Defined

leave a comment »

Denial – Occurs when the mind is overlooked by a traumatic experience. The mind responds as if the incident were not happening. Denial can be compared with the unexpected death of a loved one.

Regression – Results in behavior adjustments in which the mind unconsciously selects a behavior that has been successfully used in the past when confronted with total dependency. For example, as children, we were totally dependent on a primary care giver for our needs. In a hostage situation, the hostage taker assumes the role of primary care giver.

Identification – With the hostage taker occurs on the unconscious level. The mind seeks to avoid the wrath or punishment by emulating behaviors and adapting to the hostage takers values. A young military recruit identifies with the drill instructor. Identification initially is to avoid punishment, but eventually changes to the adoption of the instructors standards and values.

Stockholm Syndrome – Defense Mechanisms

leave a comment »

When the hostage experiences a great deal of stress, the mind seeks a means of survival. One avenue it may take is the use of defense mechanisms. These are essential unconscious adjustments made in the presence of danger. Three of the most common defense mechanisms are Denial, Regression and Identification.

Stockholm Syndrome – Its us against them

leave a comment »

I also wanted to discuss this part of the definition a little more.

Strangely, this phenomenon, which can affect both the hostage and hostage taker seems to be born in the high-stress environment of a confined space. An emotional bond forms and leads to the development of a philosophy: “It’s us against them”.

Stockholm Syndrome – An Emotional Response

leave a comment »

I wanted to discuss this part a bit more.

The Stockholm Syndrome seems to be an automatic, probably unconscious, emotional response to the trauma of becoming a victim. The physical and psychological stress induced by the hostage situation causes the hostage to react in a manner totally against the persons normal beliefs, values and ethics.

That statement is strong, in that it should tell anyone that no matter what their background or status, that under specific circumstances, a person may do or say things that under ordinary conditions, they would never do.
