Anatomia della Coppia
Author: Erica Francesca Poli
Publisher: Anima Srl
"L'amore è un argomento da comprendere vivendolo. Questo libro è un valido aiuto." Un libro dedicato alla realizzazione della più alta coscienza di sè attraverso l'esperienza della coppia scritto con la solita grazia e rigorosità scientifica che contraddistinguono l’autrice. Quando siamo in coppia, ci interroghiamo su una esperienza di coppia finita o creiamo una nuova coppia, assai di frequente dimentichiamo che la coppia è un terzo rispetto ai due che la compongono. Ha le sue regole, le sue fasi, i suoi bisogni, la sua coscienza. Molto spesso le difficoltà che incontriamo nelle faccende d'amore sono legate proprio a questo, all'incapacità di leggere e guidare la coppia costruendo la vera unione che è appunto il terzo essere fatto dai due. Cosa significa esattamente unione? Come creare l'unione nella coppia? Un viaggio verso l'amore incondizionato e la vera felicità interiore, che prende le mosse dalle più recenti scoperte delle neuroscienze e della psicologia energetica, fino a raggiungere le vette di una riflessione sull'Anima e il salto di Coscienza che l'Amore ci offre, arricchito da casi e storie reali e corredato di un vademecum per la coppia felice davvero applicabile ed efficace. L'AUTRICE: La dott. Erica F. Poli è medico psichiatra, psicoterapeuta e counselor. Membro di molte società scientifiche, tra cui IEDTA (International Experiential Dynamic Therapy Association), ISTDPInstitute e OPIFER (Organizzazione Psicoanalisti Italiani Federazione e Registro), annovera un’approfondita ed eclettica formazione psicoterapeutica che le ha fornito la capacità di affrontare il mondo della psiche fino alla spiritualità, sviluppando un personale metodo di lavoro interdisciplinare e psicosomatico.
The Anatomy of Healing
Author: Erica Francesca Poli
Publisher: Anima Srl
What is healing? What really determines it? How can we make it happen? It is increasingly clear that there is not just one single kind of medicine and that paths to healing flow through the integration of multiple pieces of knowledge and the combination of many perspectives. In light of the latest research into neurophysiology, psyche science and quantum physics, this book outlines the seven principles of the powerful interaction between psyche and body in healing processes, providing scientific answers to questions about the mechanisms which trigger it and identifying therapies that allow us to turn these internal switches on. This is demonstrated through reflections, examples, and real cases shared by the author, a psychiatrist and doctor who has completed several rigorous trainings but maintains an open mind and has been committed for more than 15 years to seek healing of serious illnesses in the psychosomatic unit by using therapeutic synergies that strengthen official care practices with innovative treatments, with her passionate work to painlessly repair suffering, with the patient, or rather the person, always and constantly at the centre.

One of our bestselling and most respected cultural critics, Naomi Wolf, acclaimed author of The Beauty Myth and The End of America, brings us an astonishing work of cutting-edge science and cultural history that radically reframes how we understand the vagina—and, consequently, how we understand women. A “New Biography,” Vagina is at once serious, provocative, and immensely entertaining—a radical and endlessly fascinating exploration of the gateway to female consciousness from a remarkable writer and thinker at the forefront of the new feminism.
People like to talk. We know that talking to an attentive and thoughtful listener can be helpful in clarifying conscious and unconscious feelings, thoughts, and motivations. But is talk enough? The complex physiology of anxiety and traumatic stress reactions is often stubbornly persistent, despite therapeutic exploration in both conscious and unconscious areas of the mind. In the case of severe trauma, talking can stir up the emotions and associated bodily disturbance without providing any resolution - sometimes leaving clients feeling worse. The developing field of energy psychology offers an entirely new perspective and gamut of techniques for locating where these traumatic patterns are encoded. They are not in the mind - but in the energy system at the interface of psyche and soma. By addressing these realms concurrently, a powerful therapeutic synergy emerges that allows rapid and deep shifts in the patterns of distress that drive the psychosomatic system. Psychoanalytic Energy Psychotherapy [PEP] provides a window into the deep sources and structures of emotional currents that flow through the mind. From the energetic vantage point, we can survey the parts, the multiple levels, and the hidden programmes of the psychosomatic system. We have access to realms that are not available through the psyche alone. The author has bridged the diverse fields of "thought field therapy" energy psychology and psychoanalysis to provide a novel overview that is both practical and theoretical.
Noted Belgian psychoanalyst Paul Verhaeghe shows us what it is about sex that both keeps us moving and inhibits us at the same time. The first essay, "The Impossible Couple", is both a humorous and razor-sharp analysis of the contemporary relationship between man and woman. In the second essay, "Fleeing Fathers", the author demonstrates that today the Freudian Oedipus complex has disappeared, with a resulting shattering of classic gender roles. Post-modern morals are strange compared to previous morality, because they convey an obligation to enjoy. Things become even stranger when one finds that the expected enjoyment fails to come and, instead of that, we are faced with boredom, anxiety, and anger. The reasons for this are discussed in the third essay, "The Drive". Today, sexual abuse is omnipresent, with the male in the role of offender, women and children reduced to his victims. Paul Verhaeghe reconsiders the opposition between Eros and Thanatos as an opposition between two forms of sexual pleasure. The fact that this opposition is ever present in heterosexual love demonstrates that gender differentiation goes beyond temporal cultural forms.Accessibly written and provocatively argued, Love in a Time of Loneliness is a polemic whose very informality belies its serious intent. In these three fascinating essays, Professor Verhaeghe leaves the ordinary paths of thinking and sets out to discover what drives us in sex and love.
The nervous system is made up of a large number of interacting elements. To understand how such a complex system functions requires the construction and analysis of computational models at many different levels. This book provides a step-by-step account of how to model the neuron and neural circuitry to understand the nervous system at all levels, from ion channels to networks. Starting with a simple model of the neuron as an electrical circuit, gradually more details are added to include the effects of neuronal morphology, synapses, ion channels and intracellular signalling. The principle of abstraction is explained through chapters on simplifying models, and how simplified models can be used in networks. This theme is continued in a final chapter on modelling the development of the nervous system. Requiring an elementary background in neuroscience and some high school mathematics, this textbook is an ideal basis for a course on computational neuroscience.

To Have Or To Be?
Author: Erich Fromm
Publisher: A&C Black
To Have Or to Be? is one of the seminal books of the second half of the 20th century. Nothing less than a manifesto for a new social and psychological revolution to save our threatened planet, this book is a summary of the penetrating thought of Eric Fromm. His thesis is that two modes of existence struggle for the spirit of humankind: the having mode, which concentrates on material possessions, power, and aggression, and is the basis of the universal evils of greed, envy, and violence; and the being mode, which is based on love, the pleasure of sharing, and in productive activity. To Have Or to Be? is a brilliant program for socioeconomic change.
How do we reconcile our need to express our emotions with our desire to protect others? Far too often we find ourselves trapped in this dilemma of expression versus repression. We fear that by expressing our true feelings, we will hurt and alienate those close to us.

Osho, one of the most provocative and inspiring spiritual teachers of our time, provides here a practical and comprehensive approach to dealing with this conflict effectively. Incorporating new, never-before-published material, Emotional Wellness leads us to understand the roots of our emotions, to react to situations in a way that can teach us more about ourselves and others, and to respond to life’s inevitable ups and downs with far greater confidence and equilibrium. Discover: • The impact that fear, anger, and jealousy have on our lives • How emotions like guilt, insecurity, and fear are used to manipulate us • How to break out of unhealthy responses to strong emotions • How to transform destructive emotions into creative energy • The role of society and culture on our individual emotional styles Osho’s unique insight into the human mind and heart goes far beyond conventional psychology. He teaches us to experience our emotions fully and to deal with them creatively in order to achieve a richer, fuller life. From the Hardcover edition.
