Be Brave, Let’s Dream! How to Think of the Future Without Stressing Out
In line with Alain Braconnier’s books on optimism. In this book, he starts with an observation — there is a sort of general doubt experienced with regard to the future — and proposes tools to help move forward constructively into the future.
Feeling self-confident means being capable of developing projects for the future and knowing how to push events towards success for ones self. But it also means being capable of living at peace with ones self. In this book, Willy Pasini explains exactly how self-confidence develops. What is the influence of the way we perceive our own bodies? What can be done instead to enhance our feelings of inner security? This is an essential work which should help readers calmly set out on the road to happiness. Willy Pasini is a psychotherapist.
The Benefits of the Image
Should sex and violence be banned on our television screens ? Is there a danger that their presence can lead to them becoming common-place, or to delinquency ? In light of this current debate, Serge Tisseron argues that as soon as we become accustomed to a type of image, and it ceases to upset us, we invent another type which will once more allow us to confuse image and reality, and thus to shiver again with fear and anxiety. In a society which is flooded with images, it is thus essential to use them as best we can, and to avoid the dangers that are inherent in them. This book aims to contribute to this end. Serge Tisseron is a psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, doctor of psychology and research fellow at the University of Paris-X. For the past fifteen years, he has worked on the relations that viewers have with different types of images.
