  • Qual o valor de sua sáude mental? | INTERPSI

    proximo What is the value of your mental health? 11.10.2020 We work, study, produce non-stop, interact, marry, raise children, accumulate some assets, go through a pandemic, economic, family and existential crises. We get tired, move on and keep producing. ​ We tend not to pay attention to our anxieties and our most genuine questions for fear of getting in touch with them and not going back to being who we need to be in the world, nor offering what is expected of us in the infinite wheel of fulfilling tasks and obligations. The problem is that when we silence anguish and try hard to digest the indigestible, some symptoms appear and persist until we are willing to give ourselves a chance. ​ Depression, panic, insomnia, unexplained pain that persist, recurring nightmares, addictions, aggressiveness, melancholy, extreme anxiety, dropouts, insecurity, seclusion, broken relationships, discouragement to live life, just the life we struggled so hard to build. Everything that bothers us and is not welcome we sweep under the rug of the unconscious and the more we try to hide, guess what? More will dare to appear. The voice of the unconscious is subtle, but it does not stop until it is heard, as Sigmund Freud used to say. Trying to silence the symptoms that insistently manifest themselves with medication alone is like trying to extinguish an erupting hurricane with buckets of water. Leaving psychic suffering under anesthesia does not work in the long term, especially in the current pandemic moment in which we live, where old unresolved issues, impossible to continue to be suffocated and accepted as if they were not there, have drastically emerged. The pandemic made the suffering more acute and with it brought us the emergence of solving some puzzles in our lives. In the clinic, we psychologists, we observe all these complaints described here above, we observe the torment, the anguish, the fear of launching ourselves in front of the new and the unknown, the tiredness of oneself and the impotence of being, of doing differently. ​ But we still notice the disbelief and skepticism of some about the treatment of psychic pain through the word. Not to mention the old and outdated stigmas associating psychotherapeutic treatment with madness or exclusive only to class AA; not to mention the cruel self-imposition of enduring, suffering in silence and having to smile when you want to scream, such paradigms - crystallized in some - comfortably favor those who wish to be immersed in their symptoms, outsourcing the blame for their own stumbling blocks, thus remaining conveniently inert to any spark of change. Quite often, we psi professionals are asked whether just “sitting and talking” works. It takes too long? Is expensive? ​ The therapeutic process does involve financial and time investment, but above all psychic investment, persistence and courage to listen. Valuing Psychology and the work of the psychologist or psychoanalyst who is permanently dedicated to the studies of the human psyche is also valuing life and a chance for transformation. ​ Research has already shown that for years after the end of psychotherapy, as well as the psychoanalytic treatment founded by Freud, that its positive effects extend and reverberate in the reduction of hospitalizations and very high expenses with medications, as well as the reduction of sick leave, reflecting positively not only within companies but also unburdening the public health system. In our society, value is given above all to frivolous and ephemeral objects, likes, number of followers, filters and fame, time, energy and large sums of money are invested in disposable items and strategies that make us look like someone we are not. I will not go into the merits of whether the individual can effectively or not financially bear the costs of continued psychotherapeutic treatment, however I would like to leave the reflection on what value we are giving to our own mental health and what moves us more deeply while we often disinvest in discovering the most legitimate encounter we could afford, that with our own uniqueness. ​ Is therapy expensive? It depends. Dear is the broken marriage, dear is the child who no longer speaks to you or the unresolved relationship with your mother. Expensive is repeating patterns of hurtful relationships and not realizing it. Face is the anguish of realizing that you are in a place in life that you don't belong to and don't want to be. Expensive is the waste of potential and a life without goals. Expensive is wanting to go further, but not having the courage to get up. ​ ​ Author: Andreia Hollenstein CRP: 05/36484 Clinical Psychologist & Psychoanalysis References: Berghout, C., Zevalkink, J., & Hakkaart-van Roijen, L.

  • Abuso Psicológico | INTERPSI

    proximo Abuso Psicológico 20.06.2018 Psychological Abuse ​ 06.20.2018 ​ Contrary to popular belief, violence against women does not only manifest itself in the form of physical violence, but it can also manifest itself as insults, restriction of freedom and recurrent humiliation. Psychological violence is silent and takes place in the intimacy of the couple's life or even between relatives. Psychological abuse is also known as Gaslighting, the term comes from 1938, from the play Gas Light that inspired the movie À Meia Luz, in which the husband tries to drive his wife crazy by manipulating the house lights (which used to run on gas) and then denying that the light has been altered when your wife contradicts you. When we talk about psychological violence, it is normal that it is surprising when we elucidate that it can cause as much or more trauma and damage to the victim's emotional state as physical violence and even torture, as has been shown in many studies. Yes, people who are victims of psychological abuse may be more susceptible to depression, drug addiction, alcoholism, suicide, sleep and eating disorders, in addition to the somatization of illnesses. As self-esteem is undermined, the victim closes off, ends up losing social ties and becomes increasingly isolated, which makes all of this more dangerous because in addition to the victim weakening and not being able to verbalize a request for help, she loses few external references of what it is like to be in a healthy relationship. How do I identify that I am suffering psychological abuse? Does your partner constantly humiliate you using lewd insults, ironies and insults with the purpose of belittling you? He apologizes but does it all over again, doesn't seem to have any self-criticism? He does not empathize with the feelings of others, nor does he express genuine emotions towards others. He is an extremely controlling and calculating person, only the law he establishes is valid and his “principles” are fragile and questionable. He is manipulative, at the beginning of the relationship he was an apparently considerate partner, but after a while he began to impose his will to the detriment of his freedom. When you get hurt by something he's done, he accuses you of being "hyper-sensitive, fresh or spoiled" and his most frequent statement is "that's in your head, you're crazy, out of control, I didn't do any of that, yeah you who imagine things”. He has an explosive and fickle temper and blames you for getting nervous or having him mad. The aggressor's goal is always to leave the victim insecure and cornered; psychological violence often precedes physical violence, if the victim always backs off, the aggressor will always repeat the behavior, thus turning an endless circle of humiliation and verbal aggression that penetrates deeper like an arrow in the already weakened prey. The abuser causes the victim to begin to doubt his sanity and question his worth as a person. It is worth remembering that psychological violence can manifest itself in all social classes and cultures, but unfortunately it is still very chronic and present in macho cultures, which have a patriarchal historical heritage. These are just some of the many characteristics that an abusive relationship can have, if you have identified them in your routine, seek help, talk to someone you trust, look for ways to get stronger and put an end to a relationship that has these features is toxic. Love is a vital ingredient, yes, but without mutual respect and trust the foundations of a relationship cannot be sustained. Love cannot and should not be used as a justification for practicing or accepting abusive and degrading behavior. Those who truly want to be well with their better half, are concerned about not hurting, know how to ask for forgiveness and exchange affection. Trying to change the aggressor's behavior is a frequent misconception of the victim immersed in a hopeful fiction that one day – as a proof of love – he will transform. Imperfections and setbacks in the relationship are part of the challenges of living together, not violence. The reality of many families will only change through clarification; the more people are aware of this issue, the more the victims will be more likely to recognize that they are in fact victims and thus look for a way out. If you've read this text and remembered someone close to you who might be going through this, talk to that person, offer support.

  • Saber Ouvir | INTERPSI

    proximo SABER OUVIR 16.09.2011 KNOW HEAR ​ 16.09.2011 Nowadays we are dredged up by the speed of information, by the demand to produce, make and be constantly updated and informed about everything. Our routine has become robotic. Our words, increasingly empty of emotion. Our feelings, affections and pains are buffered by the daily tasks, which must at all costs be performed with ultra perfection and to the maximum of our performance. What has the actual act of relating turned into? Where did the patience and real willingness to listen to the other go? A calm dialogue with a person where there is mutual understanding becomes increasingly scarce. When was the last time you talked to someone and that instead of competition between the lines - dispute for the title of the best argument - there was synchronicity and reciprocal interests? Much admired is the gift of speech of those who are well articulate, innate communicative cults who do not get lost either in their thoughts or in their words when they speak. But many forget that listening is also an art. Listening does not mean just listening or simply being in the body when the other is speaking. Knowing how to listen means considering, it means for a moment just trying to get out of your own skin in order to try to feel what the other feels and wants to communicate, and thus try to embrace the experience or anguish of others without judgment. Why are cases of depression in all age groups and increasingly lonely people on the rise? Why are suicide and divorce rates in large cities rising out of control? Think about that person you love, that friend you love so much, do you really listen to him? We often notice a sign of sadness or concern marking the faces of these people in our closest relationship, but are we really willing to listen to what the other person has to say about their pain? Why do we always take the time to criticize and judge but not to listen? To help those who love it, it is not always necessary to have the best repertoire of words and interpretations about the problem exposed by the other, often it is enough to listen with affection, simply to understand. Sometimes a simple attempt at understanding expresses the companionship and support that sufferers so need. Who has never had that feeling of trying to explain something to someone and this person interrupts you right in the middle of the flow of your emotions and thoughts with floods of your own opinions that do not make any sense with your theme? This behavior, in addition to not helping, gets in the way, forcing the subject to swallow the rest of his sentence and, consequently, his feelings that were ready to be put out and worked on. As bad as swallowing back what was about to come out is having to digest it all over again, this time feeling more alone. Who hasn't heard from someone (or who hasn't!) a resounding: "yes yes, I already know what you're going to say...I know you!" This type of phrase carries the meaning of giving up the other, removing the possibility of the other to become something new and evolve, leaving no room for change and new expressions of becoming. While silence is frightening and uncomfortable for many, we often shy away from communicating not only out of fear of conflict, but also because we rarely feel that there is anyone really willing to listen. Relationships end and people move away because there is no listening or mutual acceptance, but successive criticisms and framing of the other in extremely narrow molds that are almost always corresponding to the very psychic limitations of those who do. This trampling of words, characterizing the lack of availability to listen, plasters the other in a place where he may no longer belong, the other is disappointed and not feeling welcomed and understood, moves away. The action of exercising a healthy listening that I propose here on a day-to-day basis between family members and friends or close people is something that is not home therapy, but it can have a beneficial therapeutic effect on those who, at a given moment in their life, need to be involved in a network of protection and help, after all, all of us, under some circumstances, have found ourselves in moments of vulnerability and confusion. The benefits of the exercise of listening are evident, these are the improvement of relationships in general, reducing misunderstandings in communication, because only through accurate listening can we see the real perspective of the other and consequently place ourselves in a more appropriate and fair way in the situation in question; but there is no way to reap good fruit in a garden where there has not been a good sowing, that is, listening is an exercise that must be practiced. Pride, another factor that hinders listening, always throws the other at the level of the defective, inappropriate, complex, after all, the proud subject feels infallible, behaving like an armored tank that tactlessly passes over everything and everyone . For this individual who protects his insecurities with this shield called pride, having to listen is like torture, because listening means changing, granting, revealing, learning something new and giving yourself away. It is a sign of strength whoever exposes his weaknesses and knows how to ask for help, cowardly is the one who trivializes, criticizes or represses the other's attempt to get closer. When we donate ourselves to truly listen to the other, we are contributing to reduce the discredit of others, the distance between people and the distrust so pervaded in our society traumatized by wars, violence and increasingly extreme individualism. When we listen to the other we are not losing, on the contrary, we are gaining experience and wisdom, whoever listens more learns more and a lot! By listening, we learn to relate to health and thus practice something that will actually bring us happiness: the pleasure of exchange, generosity and doing good. When was the last time you actually listened to someone? "I don't try to know the answers, I try to understand the questions."

  • Mulher, Independência e Bem-Estar | INTERPSI

    psicologia proximo MULHER, INDEPENDÊNCIA E BEM-ESTAR 12.02.2010 WOMAN, INDEPENDENCE AND WELL-BEING ​ 02.12.2010 Excitement, passion and emotion that first glimpse what new perspectives offer, but what happens to the feelings after this magical phase? Normally the adaptation process in a culture different from ours can be seen as a "U", the first point from above is the euphoria of the new that then goes down reaching the curve below, this would represent the moments of doubt, disillusionment, loneliness and even giving up, going up again to the other end, which would already be the most stable phase of adaptation, where we can already recognize ourselves in the stranger and walk alone. I would like to draw attention here to the professional issue of women who migrate and to how important having a professional career is for their autonomy, identity and well-being wherever they are. In our society, we define ourselves not only, but largely through our profession, which, in addition to locating and identifying us socially, brings us a feeling of being in the world, contributing something to someone and especially being full, occupying ourselves and being completing by exercising the chosen activity. Our work and the responsibility we take for it, also brings the desire to improve, do well, learn more and consequently expand and evolve as a person. The woman who migrates is, for a number of reasons, more subject to withdrawal from her professional life, the time it takes to be fluent in a foreign language, non-recognition of diplomas abroad and often even the lack of support from her partner, even reaching to a subtle restraint, they are just a few reasons that end up undermining her self-confidence and making the woman postpone for a date that she does not know the beginning or the restart of her career abroad. If we look to the past, we can see that Brazilian culture has always taught that women had to obey and sacrifice themselves for the other. Always placed in the background, we can see this in the course of Brazilian history, an example is the institution of the female vote that came decades later in Brazil than in the rest of the world, as well as its access to universities and, consequently, its emancipation. Not to mention that the role of women in colonial Brazil was restricted to the organization of the home and procreation, the appropriate woman was the one with attributes such as ingenuity, purity and subordination, she was seen as an object for sex, but without sexuality. Unintentionally and due to certain difficult circumstances that can only be momentary, we women end up reproducing some remnants of our history, putting us in a place that hasn't belonged to us for a long time. Subjugating yourself in all degrees and clothes is not healthy, on the contrary, it is a cut of creativity, talents and the essence of the feminine and the human, we must fearlessly show ourselves entirely who we are, as a woman as well as a person with dreams, anxieties, fears, doubts, strengths and weaknesses. Being clear about what you really want to do and persisting in your individual purposes works as a great guide not to submit to sad situations that, in fact, in many cases it is not necessary to submit. The exercise of self-reflection and self-questioning allows us to look at ourselves, to investigate what we want and what makes us genuinely happy and then tread the path with more confidence and less deviations and distractions, never giving up on who we really are and what we are capable of.

  • Psicologia Intercultural | INTERPSI

    proximo PSICOLOGIA INTERCULTURAL: UMA FERRAMENTA PARA AJUDAR A QUEM MIGRA. 14.07.2012 INTERCULTURAL PSYCHOLOGY: A TOOL TO HELP MIGRATES. ​ 07.14.2012 We live in a time when people from the most diverse cultures and nationalities intertwine across the globe. Due to the facilities brought by means of communication, technology and transport, the world became more interconnected and borders increasingly elastic. Moving geographically is easy. Virtually or in person, we can very quickly be exposed to cultures that are extremely different from our own. ​ People who, for various reasons, decide to adopt a new country to live in are the ones who are most subject to the impact of the cultural shock that triggers important changes in their relationships, affections, in the perception of themselves and the environment in which they live. A new language to learn, different ways of relating, homesickness, loneliness, separation, starting from scratch, and their homeland seen through different eyes are just some of the feelings that immigrants experience in their daily lives. ​ Intercultural psychology emerges both as a focus of research and clinical intervention in order to observe cultural phenomena that may affect the subject's psychic health, being the focus of the intercultural psychologist: to analyze the relationship between culture and human behavior, being sensitized to the psychopathologies arising from migration and cultural issues as well as ensuring the social and psychological well-being of the expatriate. ​ Below are some of the main complaints presented by migrants in clinical practice: ​ Culture shock: Amazement and even disappointment with new elements found in the receiving culture, difficulty in understanding different habits and attitudes. Culture shock can serve both as a great tool for interesting discoveries and can arouse denial and avoidance of contact with the new. Acculturative stress: It is shown as an overload of tasks that the subject is required to learn about the culture that welcomes him, generating emotional stress over time. Pain of separation from family members. Frustration: Not always everything goes as planned and for this reason a series of questions are generated regarding the decision to change the country itself and about perspectives for the future. In these cases, there may even be a phase of stagnation – for a short or long period of time – in daily activities. Shock by the change of social position: the subject's social status often declines in his new country. Until he becomes established in his profession, he temporarily leaves for other types of employment that he would not do in his homeland. This move can profoundly affect your self-esteem. Anxiety: It can arise when dealing with losses, separations, financial stressors, discrimination, etc. The most common symptoms are sleep disturbances, confusion in organizing daily tasks, impatience, difficulty in setting priorities and in interpersonal relationships. All of the above items can generate depressive symptoms - the most frequent complaint in this type of clinic - which are added to the experience of seeing oneself only in a foreign country, as well as the difficulty of entering a group and making bonds of friendship. The individual increasingly avoids putting himself in situations that demand a lot of energy, he is afraid of not being understood and of failing. In this way, motivations flatten and everyday life becomes stagnant. It is also interesting to know that the appearance of the problems described above can vary a lot for each person. An individual with high self-confidence will undoubtedly go over certain obstacles much more easily than someone who already carries some emotional vulnerability. Seeking therapeutic guidance as soon as possible, when you run into some obstacles, often inherent to the path, helps a lot to organize feelings that are often still confused and muffled that need to be worked through. Delaying the search for help only adds to the anguish. ​ Doing a previous study of the country you are going to helps a lot. Reading about their peculiarities, talking to natives, having contacts, among other small actions, reassures those who are leaving and can make the change much easier. However, one of the most precious tips for those who migrate is to know yourself and be aware of your plans and concrete reasons why you will be leaving your land. Set your goals well, always keeping in mind those that make real sense to your life and that contribute to your own personal fulfillment. ​ Author: Andreia Hollenstein CRP: 05/36484 Clinical Psychologist & Psychoanalysis

  • 2021: Como desejamos ingressar? | INTERPSI

    proximo 2021: How do we want to join? With the end of an arduous year that was 2020, we inevitably ask ourselves what the next year will be like and what pandemic reverberations it will bring with it. Transformations not only of a social and economic order, but also related to personal challenges and reformulations. The pandemic made us unveil hidden pains, relationships that were on a tightrope fell away, and those that were on hold came out. ​ Globally, we started to shed light, debate and question, with deserved seriousness, topics of immense relevance: how we have lived the roles of gender and parenting, consumption and waste, family and isolation, pollution and the environment, home office and homeschooling, housing, displacement and quality of life? In fact, we were literally forced to stop – in a deafening silence for some and comforting for others – in order to rethink life and what living represents for each one of us. Everything we knew as solid ground shook and crumbled. As the Polish sociologist Zygmunt Bauman has tirelessly said in his books and lectures, change is the only permanent thing, and uncertainty the only certainty. The concept of liquid modernity coined by Bauman has never been as real and palpable as it is now. ​ Nothing is here to stay, everything is liquid. What is the lesson that sailing in this turbulent sea of 2020 will leave us? For each individual, this arid crossing took different forms and meanings, for some it meant loss, loneliness, helplessness, panic and for others it meant challenges, recreation and discoveries. Self-help material has never been so consumed as it is now, books and lives on philosophy and mental health, as well as spaces for dialogue on themes of the human psyche, have grown exponentially. This year it was evident how everything and everyone in our surroundings impacts us subjectively, and the way we put ourselves in relationship can also affect the other directly, contaminating or protecting them. How we want to continue designing our own personal journey, as we are part of a constantly changing world, is still an enigma for many of us, precisely because of this the need to look inside has become unavoidable, the search for psychotherapies has grown to eyes seen in an attempt to find a lighthouse in the middle of the 2020 storm. Giving a voice to what suffocates is the greatest proof of the courage to face what we don't know about ourselves, but which is there, waiting to be deciphered. ​ What of our subjectivities was being stifled and what did the pandemic unveil? The psychoanalytic process provides this place of voice and listening, diving into its own subjective universe and, above all, it provides an interior dialogue with new possibilities of living and being. It offers the opportunity to work something inside of us so that our union with the other is more harmonious and less out of tune. ​ Psychoanalysis allows for questioning and a chance to formulate sincere and authentic answers to oneself and about oneself; as well as offering to those who are willing, a chance to put a stop to what hurts. At the turn of the year, which symbolically represents a milestone between what was in the past and what we look forward to in the future; even the most skeptical make promises and keep their hopes a secret, and the most superstitious playfully announce their famous end-of-the-year resolutions coupled with rituals that bring good luck to others. ​ Regardless of belief, ritual or time on the calendar, we can and must continue to dream. Because the dream is what shapes the desire, the desire to build new realities, keep on recreating ourselves and above all our own way of being happy. ​ ​ Author: Andreia Hollenstein CRP: 05/36484 Clinical Psychologist & Psychoanalysis ​

    psicologia SAÚDE MENTAL E LITERATURA 15.11 .2022 THE FOREIGN BEING ​ 28.03.2009 ​ The migratory process and the immersion in a culture foreign to ours can sometimes cause a feeling of loneliness, strangeness with the different, confusion and disorientation, feelings often of rejection and fear of being rejected. Foreigners often feel again like a child who needs to relearn everything, to speak and write a new language when necessary, to make new friends and learn to integrate into their new society, get used to new eating habits and deprive themselves even for others, getting used to the geography and climate of the new place; foreigners also need to understand the politics, economy, history and culture of their new home and, above all, understand the mentality and habits of the people who live there. The foreign being is also often accompanied by being regarded on numerous occasions as 'the stranger from a distant galaxy', and even being seen as 'exotic' but without feeling exotic, being suddenly considered to belong to an ethnic group that never before, he thought of belonging and sometimes being seen as a stereotyped figure of all the elements present in the imagination of those who cross his path. In addition to all this, being a foreigner always also implies respecting, understanding, revealing, learning and relearning, getting used to, being patient, giving in and all this in the search to feel accepted, this is, by the way, the the most natural need of the human being: the need to belong, to be part! As psychoanalytic studies have shown for a long time, the feeling of belonging is an intrinsic need, inherent to the human being, as we seek comfort, security and build our identity through the relationship and contact with another, that is, we are individual and relational beings at the same time. This hurricane of feelings forces us to be strong subjects and, on the other hand, totally vulnerable, but the reward is in the experience - pleasant or not to remember - make us wise and rich in feelings. I also learned over time not to confuse being a foreigner with being a foreigner. We must be careful not to fall into an eternal crystallization of labels that often hinder the individual potential of each one of us. Everyone has different fingerprints, as well as a preciously unique personality and character, so don't let others narrow them down. It is often necessary to put pride aside and be a shrewd observer when we are still apprentices of a culture different from ours, in practice it is necessary to know and be aware of their rights and duties, in the heart humility and the choice of happiness instead of vanity. There is no magic formula to avoid uncomfortable situations in your new home, however, what I advise - which has often helped me - is to be curious and attentive to every step and challenge of daily life, listen to criticism - and cheers! - and try to accept them even if it takes time. Being open to new friendships and people you can trust, this is essential to feel little by little integrated, and especially to face the daily difficulties with lightness and good humor. This can be a great and infallible remedy. ​ "Those who don't know foreign languages don't know anything about their own."
