Abstract

In this paper, a second-order adaptive model is introduced for simulation of the formation of a mental model of a traumatic course of events and its emotional responses, and learning processes of how a stimulus can become a trigger to activate this mental model. Furthermore, the influence of therapy on the ability of an individual to learn to control the emotional responses to the traumatic mental model was modeled. To unblock and activate this learning ability, a form of second-order adaptation was applied.
