ABSTRACT:
“They weren’t bad people. They let me eat, they let me sleep, and they gave me my life”— A hostage from Flight 847 Origin “Stockholm Syndrome” first coined by Professor Nils Bejerot to explain the phenomenon of hostages bonding with their captors. • Stockholm, Sweden 1973, two bank robbers held four people hostages for six days. • Wide publicity: hostages came to care about their captors and perceive them as protecting them against the police. Stockholm syndrome Stockholm syndrome is the psychological tendency of a hostage to bond with, identify with, or sympathize with his or her captor. Stockholm syndrome can be seen as a form of traumatic bonding, which does not necessarily require a hostage scenario, but which describes “strong emotional ties that develop between two persons where one person intermittently harasses, beats, threatens, abuses, or intimidates the other.”
