Boys and girls are different initially. Since childhood, girls prefer to play with dolls, outfits and relationships, boys are more interested in cars, construct something and fight. You can, of…

Tram People

Most recently, I met one amazing book. This is a practical guide to psychology, written not for scientists and psychology students, but for ordinary people.

Simple, but not simple. Because these “simple” people sometimes know more than any other psychologist. We are talking about the parents of the so-called hyperactive children with attention deficit and learning disabilities …

This is a very polite term that does not say anything about the tragedy of parents. Such children are usually expelled from all circles, kindergartens, and then from school. They study at home. It’s hard to live with such people in the same apartment, but to be in public is impossible. These are the very children Continue reading

Gaseous people

In nature, a substance exists in three states: in solid, liquid, and in gaseous. (There is still plasma, but to present this in the logic of my metaphor is already higher than my strength).

And in psychology there is such a metaphor that people also come in three types: solid, liquid and … gaseous. I’ll explain now.

Just imagine a solid. Supposedly they brought him into the room. Where they put it (put it), there it lies (stands). Doesn’t bother anyone.

4 learning outcomes

I am addressing this article to teachers and parents, and parents in the first place. I do this for two reasons.

Firstly, the situation with education now has developed for the most part such that “the salvation of drowning people is the work of the drowning people themselves.” Therefore, if the parents themselves do not learn something with their child, then no one else will probably learn.

Secondly. As for the rare – good teachers, they are just constantly learning new advanced techniques, spending their leisure time and money on this, so the high-quality methodologists who train them will explain to me “how to teach” without me. But still, my information, which does not pretend to cover particulars, but sets out a general concept, will, in my humble opinion, be useful to thoughtful educators as well.

The great child and family psychologist, the author of best-selling books, Julia Borisovna Gippenreiter at Continue reading

Marriage ... Positive reframing
I’ll briefly recall what “positive reframing” is. Reframing is the brainchild of Peseshkian's positive psychotherapy, as well as behavioral psychotherapy and NLP. Reframing is such a purely linguistic (verbal) operation…
