Racket feelings

Emotions are such an emotive topic. There are many and varied definitions about them and lots of alternate theories of emotion. In transactional Analysis the term racket has been used in many ways and some are listed here.

Racket feelings are generally seen as pathological and hence it seems opportune to define what a healthy, here and now feeling is.

Also enclosed are different solutions to feelings. Again there is much conjecture on what is the psychologically healthy way to deal with feelings - express them, inhibit them or think them away.

  1. Not sure about brevity as a quality of healthy feeling esp when connected with something major like a grief or past trauma.

    I do think this is true most of the time. Agree with the other stuff too.

  2. Good point Evan, and it probably requires further explanation. It is meant to relate to feelings in the here and now. Someone does something and then one has a feeling expression to it and that feeling expression will only be 5 to 10 minutes. People simply cant do it any longer if they let the expression be full. People can half express for long periods of time though.



  3. I guess getting to the point of full expression can take a long time - lots of fear and shame to be dealt with sometimes.

    I guess I was thinking of the half expressing which can take a lot longer and happen frequently.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    valuable familiarity concerning unexpected feelings.
