7 - Habit Number Four: Exercise

Source: Stop & Think
Slice ePub January 09, 2014
<p> <b>C<small>HAPTER</small> 7</b> </p><p>Habit Number Four: <b>Exercise</b></p><p>I <small>DON’T KNOW HOW ELSE TO EMPHASIZE THIS POINT TO YOU</small>, other than to tell you straight out: you have to get on an exercise regimen. Before you sit down and turn on that TV, I want you to Stop and Think. Ask yourself, “Have I exercised enough today? Have I walked enough? Have I gotten on my stationary bike? Have I taken the dog for a walk?” Bottom line—you have no business sitting down and watching TV until you take care of yourself first. And that means you better get off your rump and go exercise.</p><p>Why? Obesity is going through the roof. More than 60 percent of the population in the United States is obese or overweight, according to the National Institutes of Health. It’s even affecting our kids: 15 percent of our children from ages six to nineteen are now overweight. Worldwide, one billion people are considered overweight, and 22 million children under the age of five are overweight. It’s an epidemic!</p><p>Every year, new studies show the health benefits of exercise for preventing numerous health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis. You better get up, Stop and Think about what you’re doing, and get a routine going. You need to get out of the habits that are making you become the “blimp.”</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/613882-stop-think">See more</a>

CHAPTER FIVE. Therapy for adolescents in detention for violent crime

Slice ePub August 21, 2014
<p> <i>Arnaldo Novelletto &amp; Gianluigi Monniello</i> </p><p>The psychotherapeutic treatment of adolescents detained for violent crimes may be based on psychoanalytic theory and technique, but it obviously cannot be called psychoanalytical treatment proper. For one thing, it is carried out in a highly peculiar setting: a juvenile prison. Our experiences can be related to those of Balier (1985) at Varces Prison in France and of Williams (1983) at Wormwood Scrubs in the United Kingdom.</p><p>This chapter springs from clinical consulting performed by both authors, at different times, for the Rome Children’s Court and from exchanges of views that ensued. The hypothesis that led us to offer this contribution is that there are substantial links between certain crimes of violence committed by adolescents who cannot be considered as clinically psychotic and a mode of psychic functioning that powerfully evokes the concept of breakdown.</p><p>Frequently, we find, this psychic functioning is decisive in the genesis of the crime but is not such as to preclude or seriously impair the subject’s possession of his mental faculties, which under Italian law is the condition for the penal indictment of adults (aged 18 and over).</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/251883-psychoanalytic-psychotherapy-of-the-severely-disturbed-adolescent">See more</a>

CHAPTER SEVEN. Endings and beginnings

Slice ePub May 23, 2014
<p> <i>Sira Dermen</i> </p><p> <i>Introduction: no ending without a beginning</i> </p><p>In the seventh year of his weekly treatment at the Portman Clinic in London,<sup></sup>1 Mr A, a transvestite patient, ended his therapy as follows. In mid-session, he said, “I’m sorry, but I have to do this,” got off the couch, and walked out of the consulting room.</p><p>It was not wholly out of the blue. We had been talking about ending for some two years, but when he ended in this singular manner—<i>doing this</i>, as he called it—I was dismayed, though I knew he was telling me he could not “end” in any other way.</p><p>After some weeks, Mr A contacted the clinic again, requesting to see me. In this last meeting, I commented that he had to come back to check that I was alive: ending his therapy had not killed me. I did not hear from Mr A for the next ten years. Then, in the very month that I was retiring from the Portman Clinic, he was referred back to the clinic by the same agency that had originally referred him eighteen years earlier.</p><p>***</p><p>Ms B was a private patient in five-times-per-week psychoanalysis, an accomplished professional woman, in a stable marriage, with two children. Yet, after ten years of analysis, an ending was nowhere in sight. She would, from time to time, raise the question of ending in the form of how much longer “this” would last. By contrast, my preoccupation was not with an ending, but with a beginning. Despite diminution of her psychosomatic symptoms, despite substantial improvements in family life, especially her relationship with her children, despite positive developments in her career, I felt little had changed in her mode of engagement with herself or with me. She remained dissatisfied and demanding, controlled and controlling, and there was a cold, calculating quality in her attitude toward me, as if her eye were constantly on a narcissistic balance sheet.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/351875-independent-psychoanalysis-today">See more</a>
