With supporting documentation, a book that fights a tenacious taboo that is completely out-of-sync with recent advances in psychology!
Why are more and more young girls and women becoming anorexic ? Today it is a real social problem. The trend of diets, and the multiplication of magazines about losing weight are no longer enough to explain this phenomenon. Thierry Vincent poses fundamental questions in this book in order to understand how anorexica works. Perhaps the search for new ways of treating anorexia should depart from an examination of these questions. Thierry Vincent, a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, is the medical director of the university health centre Georges Dumas, in La Tronche, near Grenoble, where high school and university students suffering from eating disorders are treated.
An indispensable book to enable parents and caregivers to help children overcome the challenge of serious illness
A true story, that of encountering, and curing, a young patient at her wits end who staked everything on a final treatment with a therapist.
The author sets out to explain why children from the same family can be as unlike one another as children from different families. Why is it that some siblings within a family accept parental authority and others rebel? What led scientific innovators such as Copernicus and Charles Darwin to reject the accepted wisdom of their time and adopt a radically new world view? In Born to Rebel, which was highly acclaimed when it was published in the United States, Frank J. Sulloway compares families to ecosystems in which siblings must find their own specific niches when competing for parental attention and favours. Frank J. Sulloway is a neuroscientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
