Articoli di Alice Miller | Non Togliermi Il Sorriso L’esperienza liberatoria della dolorosa verità Il bambino maltrattato e trascurato è completamente solo nelle tenebre del suo smarrimento e della sua angoscia.

Don’t get me wrong, I loved all of those girly toys that I was supposed to love, but instead of an ethereal baby girl, I came out of the womb kicking and screaming, my big brown eyes searching and exploring and wandering. I can imagine all of the dreams and wishes and hopes everyone had for me, but instead, I was fat. I remember the first time I thought I was fat. beauty in life
The end of 2010 fast approaches, and I'm thrilled to have been asked by the editors of Psychology Today to write about the Top 10 psychology studies of the year. I've focused on studies that I personally feel stand out, not only as examples of great science, but even more importantly, as examples of how the science of psychology can improve our lives. Each study has a clear "take home" message, offering the reader an insight or a simple strategy they can use to reach their goals , strengthen their relationships, make better decisions, or become happier. If you extract the wisdom from these ten studies and apply them in your own life, 2011 just might be a very good year. 1) How to Break Bad Habits
