El espacio común
Author: Loretta Zaira Cornejo Parolini
Publisher: Desclée De Brouwer
Una vez más Loretta Cornejo nos hace reflexionar, no solo con la mente sino también con el corazón, sobre el significado de la búsqueda de un lugar en la vida y, como consecuencia, de un lugar dentro del trabajo terapéutico.Este cuarto libro quiere transmitir la necesidad de que ese espacio que intentamos ocupar sea compartido, común. En medio de un mundo globalizado por obra y gracia de las tecnologías, pareciera que no hay fronteras, pero esto no significa que cada uno de nosotros no deba tener incorporado en su interior un sitio desde donde trabajar y convivir de modo integrado.En este trabajo, como ha venido haciendo en los anteriores, la autora escribe de modo cercano -como a ella le gusta decir desde el cerebro pero también desde la piel-, sobre el lugar de diferentes figuras afectivas: el lugar de los padres, el lugar de los niños, el lugar de los abuelos, el lugar de los hermanos, el lugar de los jóvenes, el lugar del mundo y, por último, el lugar del terapeuta. A lo largo de estas páginas se van intercalando las frases de los niños y jóvenes, las de los padres, las de los abuelos... con las técnicas para trabajar los diferentes aspectos de la terapia. También para el terapeuta, al final del libro, recoge medidas para el propio cuidado, aprendizaje y toma de contacto consigo mismo y con su vocación de ayuda.

Teaching teachers the importance of social connection in the classroom. Human brains are social, and a student's ability to learn is deeply influenced by the quality of his or her attachment to teachers and peers. Secure attachment relationships not only ensure our overall well-being, but also optimize learning by enhancing motivation, regulating anxiety, and triggering neuroplasticity. This book presents a classroom model of secure attachment, exploring how teacher-student rapport is central to creating supportive, "tribal" classrooms and school communities.

Cognitive-Behavioral Play Therapy (CBPT) incorporates cognitive and behavioral interventions within a play therapy paradigm. It provides a theoretical framework based on cognitive-behavioral principles and integrates these in a developmentally sensitive way. Thus, play as well as verbal and nonverbal approaches are used in resolving problems. CBPT differs from nondirective play therapy, which avoids any direct discussion of the child's difficulties. A specific problem-solving approach is utilized, which helps the child develop more adaptive thoughts and behaviors. Cognitive-behavioral therapies are based on the premise that cognitions determine how people feel and act, and that faulty cognitions can contribute to psychological disturbance. Cognitive-behavioral therapies focus on identifying maladaptive thoughts, understanding the assumptions behind the thoughts, and learning to correct or counter the irrational ideas that interfere with healthy functioning. Since their development approximately twenty-five years ago, such therapies have traditionally been used with adults and only more recently with adolescents and children. It has commonly been thought that preschool-age and school-age children are too young to understand or correct distortions in their thinking. However, the recent development of CBPT reveals that cognitive strategies can be used effectively with young children if treatments are adapted in order to be developmentally sensitive and attuned to the child's needs. For example, while the methods of cognitive therapy can be communicated to adults directly, these may need to be conveyed to children indirectly, through play activities. In particular, puppets and stuffed animals can be very helpful in modeling the use of cognitive strategies such as countering irrational beliefs and making positive self-statements. CBPT is structured and goal oriented and intervention is directive in nature.
Author: Daniel J. Siegel MD
In this New York Times–bestselling book, Dr. Daniel Siegel shows parents how to turn one of the most challenging developmental periods in their children’s lives into one of the most rewarding. Between the ages of twelve and twenty-four, the brain changes in important and, at times, challenging ways. In Brainstorm, Dr. Daniel Siegel busts a number of commonly held myths about adolescence—for example, that it is merely a stage of “immaturity” filled with often “crazy” behavior. According to Siegel, during adolescence we learn vital skills, such as how to leave home and enter the larger world, connect deeply with others, and safely experiment and take risks. Drawing on important new research in the field of interpersonal neurobiology, Siegel explores exciting ways in which understanding how the brain functions can improve the lives of adolescents, making their relationships more fulfilling and less lonely and distressing on both sides of the generational divide.

Piaget’s influence on psychology has been profound. His pathbreaking investigations and theories of cognitive development have set child psychology moving in entirely new directions. His bold speculations have provided the inspiration for the work of others. His studies have been the subject of many books and countless articles. And, significantly, his influence has spread to other disciplines and is having an ever-growing impact on the general culture at large.Here Jean Piaget, with the assistance of his long-time collaborator Bärbel Inhelder, offers a definitive presentation of the developmental psychology he has elaborated over the last forty years. This comprehensive synthesis traces each stage of the child’s cognitive development, over the entire period of childhood, from infancy to adolescence.
