A precious help to help you live in a peaceful way with those with whom you are brought to work.
A format adapted to the individual: tests for self-evaluation; keys for understanding how self-esteem is formed at every age, in private as well as professional life; concrete solutions to help live in the best harmony with oneself… and with others.
Self-belief, self-love, self-confidence... These are all facets of self-esteem, a basic aspect of the human personality, which results from our self-image and how we judge ourselves...
Should we express our emotions? How can we use them? How can we improve our understanding of the emotions of others? How does the transition from emotion to passion occur? This book is not only a guide to help readers find their way in the myriad of recent findings about the emotions, it is also a practical handbook. For each one of the major emotions, the authors have listed the practical advice that they give to their patients and that they try to apply in their own lives. Christophe André and François Lelord are psychiatrists.
Visiting a psychiatrist is still a frightening prospect. Taboos surround psychological illnesses and psychiatry is viewed with suspicion. Using true cases as examples, F. Lelord presents the expressions and mechanisms of various psychological problems: stress, agoraphobia, depression, bulimia, anorexia, schizophrenia, autism... With each case we dive further into the psyche, and emerge with an honest assessment of the pluses and minuses of psychiatric treatment.
