I am a psychologist and I spent several years writing articles for scientific journals specialized in Health and Psychology. I do not have the intention to insert here a long resume that would be boring and also, in my profile in LinkedIn you may find all the information you need about me.
Thus, among the scientific vocabulary and the rigid style of writing imposed by publishers, I have been accumulating the irresistible desire to write freely, both for professionals of the Psyche and students, even for those who may have some difficulty dealing with psychological topics.
Exactly this is the intention inspiring the blog name: “Psychology Spot”, a plural space where you can find different articles for a well-mixed audience.
This is a blog that aims to become a haven for joint reflection. It tries to make a break in the giddiness of everyday life and also, as a psychotherapist, to create moments of personalized introspection. Here you won’t find perfectly ineffective advices but a path leading you to think and decide autonomously.
This space won’t promise you a simple journey but presents a number of issues that will allow you to rebuild yourself and face the challenges of everyday life from a different and more positive point of view. It is, above all, a site designed to communicate a firmly belief: that talking is never enough, that we need to be heard but that’s not enough too, we must also be understood and accepted.
Here I leave you a few lines from the poem “In Defence of Joy” by Mario Benedetti, which are enclosing the feeling of each of the readings contained in this blog:
Defend joy as a trench
defend it from scandal and routine
from misery and miserables
from temporary absences
and from definitive ones.
Defend joy as a Right
defend it from God and winter
from capital letters and death
from surnames and sorrows
and from joy itself.
Many, many thanks to all the new visitors who, I hope, will become part of our community and a special thanks to all of those who are already following me, they are a boost to continue writing.
