I am a psychologist and I spent several years writing articles for scientific journals specialized in Health and Psychology. I don’t have the intention to publish here a long resume that would be boring and… in my LinkedIn’s profile 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’ve been accumulating the irresistible desire to write freely, both for the professionals of the Psyche and the students, even for those who may have some difficulty dealing with psychological topics.
Exactly this is the spirit of 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, creating 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 it gives you a number of issues that will allow you rebuild yourself and face the challenges of everyday life from a different and more positive point of view. It’s, above all, a site designed to communicate a firmly belief: that talking is never enough, 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 (Uruguayan poet), which enclose the spirit of each 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’re a boost to continue writing.
