“You can know the sea and the starry sky, but the secret of your soul is hard to find” Grigorie de NissaMy motivation is to bring something good in my life, to understand myself better and the people around me. I’ve learned that the most important person in my life is me. “Let’s imagine a glass full of impure water and a dear person, very thirsty in the dessert. What do you do? Do you give them that filthy water or do you keep them waiting?” If the ones you love are very thirsty and you want to give them your glass of water you do them a lot more harm than if you keep them waiting a little longer for the nearest oasis. “We have to purify ourselves in order to offer our loved ones pure crystal water”. Improving the quality of our emotions means that, out of love for the others, in order to help them, we must focus totally on our own needs at first and just then can we offer gestures, attitudes and can we fulfill their needs giving them our pure and peaceful water to drink. The activation – operational definitions of psychotherapy constitute “a mutual intercession between the therapist and the patient, an intercession oriented towards the investigation and understanding of the nature of the psyche’s suffering of the last one with the purpose of healing the suffering.” (T. B. Karosu, 1980 p.33) or “a relationship of deep human caretaking and mutual trust between two people, the patient who suffers from a psychic disorder and the therapist who possesses the qualification, the aptitudes and the motivation of diminishing this suffering through conscious interactions, verbal or non-verbal” (T. J. Paolino, Jr, 1981, p.13). The paired – descriptive definitions: “represents psychotherapy as a scientific discipline meant to facilitate changes of human behavior through technical specific operations” or “as an attempt to discover meanings of human understanding through auto exploring and understanding, mediated by a psychotherapist” (H. H. Strupp, G. Blackood, 1976, p.1919). Also, “psychotherapy can be defined as a treatment procedure or as a range of treatment procedures that is mediated through a verbal exchange between the patient and the clinician… whose purpose is the amelioration and improvement of social adaption”. (H. J. Walton, 1983, p.643). The psychotherapeutic technique regards the deliberate systematized intercession with reference to a certain way of mental functioning. Psychotherapy method that includes certain techniques, is based on verbal communication in a helping relationship between the patient and the therapist with the purpose of ameliorating the symptoms and improving the social adaptation. The method imposes the therapist investigating the life problems of the patient and the origins of the difficulties in his life’s experience. Under a certain point of view psychotherapy implies a process of learning for the patient (of norms, rules, desirable behavior, ways of networking, of the capacity of testing reality and integration into reality), process which is realized through: - identification; - conditioning; - classification (insight). The definition of intelligence: “knowing to separate THE ESSENTIAL from the NON ESSENTIAL!” This is what the training course brings to me.
