Grief Management and Buddhist Psychotherapy 喪親傷痛管理與佛教心理治療 (附粵語即時傳譯)

As it is discussed in the Roga Sutta of the Aṅguttaranikāya, it is immensely impossible to be a perfect mentally healthy person except an Arahant, one who has reached the highest mental and spiritual developments. Enlightened beings who have not yet reached liberation are confronted with very subtle mental distortions. Nevertheless, average people are having various mental problems minute by minute. In this comprehensive analysis on mental problems, grief (soka) is understood in Buddhist discourses as natural phenomenon faced by every average person. In this paper, it is understood with the help of elucidation of Suttas like Piyajālika, Sokasallaharaṇa, and Saccavibhaṅga in which the death of beloved ones is explained as the main cause of grief. In this context, the Buddha, playing his role as a great Psychotherapist, has shown how to overcome such grief. The elements of Buddhist grief Management Techniques scattered throughout Suttas are presented here in a systematic manner with the aim of drawing the attention of Professionals who work in the related areas of grief into valuable discussion of several Buddhist discourses that could be adopted to develop the field.

《增支部》〈病經〉指除了已達最高心理及精神發育的阿羅漢外,世上沒有心理完全健康的人。已證悟但仍未捨報者仍受輕微心理干擾,但普通人每刻都受不同心理毛病困擾。本講將憂惱 (soka) 理解為每天凡夫自然面對的問題,藉以全面分析心理問題。〈愛生經〉、〈文荼經〉、〈諦分別經〉中描述喪親為憂惱主因,而經中佛陀以心理治療師角色指導超越憂惱方法。本講將散佈不同經藏的佛教喪親傷痛管理技巧以系統化形式表述,旨在引起從事喪親傷痛輔導專業人員關注從佛教採納相關佛教經典以充實專業知識的可能性。
