Gulf Crisis: The Danger and the Opportunity (A View of the Present with Future Implications) (in Arabic)

Auther : Tala’at Mansour

This study is based on developing a frame of reference for the nature of life crises, considering concepts derived from the crisis psychology, crisis management and crisis intervention. Accordingly, the Iraqi aggression on Kuwait, with its meaninglessness and normlessness, represents a typical model for crisis as is revealed in theory and research in this field.

The gulf crisis dynamics involve danger with opportunity especially the opportunity for growth. The danger can be determined in three aspects: source of danger, dimensions of danger, and reaction to danger.

The study discusses results of a factorial study for the author, revealing three factors of the reaction to danger at Kuwaiti children and adolescents: (1) existential anxiety, (2) traumatic depressive reactions (negative effects), and 93) the will and coping with crisis (positive effects).

In gulf crisis context, there have initiated certain rational situations (as Cairo Conference) for appropriate opportunity for coping and resolution in the appropriate psychological moment, considering the predictability of danger. But these were the lost opportunity for Gulf Crisis. However the return for opportunity after the crisis has to work effectively. A suggested Strategy for crisis transcendence in this matter is developed, especially from the future perspective.
