Whenever you have a dream about being held hostage, there are several different things that can occur to you. You may dream of being taken to a location where you are sexually engrossed with another person. You may also dream of being taken by a violent person who is very angry with you. This can be very disturbing and can affect your health.
Feelings of being held hostage
Having a feeling of being held hostage can be a terrifying experience. It can occur in a variety of situations, from high-stakes events to low-stress events. However, if you have been in such a situation, you are not alone.
The Stockholm Effect is a psychological reaction that occurs in people who have been held hostage by suicidal terrorists. The hostages may refuse to testify against the kidnappers and may also exhibit an unconscious bond with them.
Stockholm Syndrome was first mentioned by the media in 1973. It was then widely recognized during the hostage crisis in Iran in 1985. Stockholm Syndrome is marked by a positive relationship between the captive and the captor and by a negative attitude towards the authorities. It is especially prevalent with political hostages. It has also been linked to cult members, abused children, and domestic violence victims.
While there are many types of emotional hostage, there are two basic things to do to help alleviate the symptoms. First, you must identify the reasons you are feeling this way.
Effects on your health
Whether you were taken hostage by terrorists, or if you were a victim of a robbery, being held hostage can have a profound impact on your health. Some of the effects include depression, anger, hyper-vigilance, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The psychological effects of being held hostage are highly dependent on the nature of the event and the extent of the abuse. The physical effects may include hyper-arousal, faintness, and heart and respiratory rate abnormalities. Physical symptoms can be life threatening, so it is important to get proper medical treatment.
During captivity, hostages may be deprived of a nutritious diet, adequate sanitation, and fresh air. They may also be deprived of sleep.
Depending on the nature of the event, some people may develop a bond with the captors, which can increase their chances of survival. These individuals may also feel guilt for developing the bond. They may also have feelings of helplessness and hopelessness.
