Description

However, it was Skynner himself who in 1977 founded the Institute of Family Therapy and chaired it for the next 2 years. I've been reading a lot of books on psychology to help me better understand myself and the people around me.

The psychology of people functioning (or rather, not) as families is explored and explained by Robin Skynner in conversations with John Cleese.

He was successively the Director of the Woodberry Down Child Guidance Unit, Physician-in Charge of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for Children, Senior Tutor in Psychotherapy at the Institute of Psychiatry and Honorary Associate Consultant at the Maudsley Hospital. Then the two men begin to reminisce about how smacking improved their relationships with their children and brought them closer together (I assume they mean non-literally, not just because their hand was coming into sharp contact with the child's backside which is pretty close contact), so it comes as a mild surprise that they are not enthusiastic about sado-masochism.

They discuss some very complicated psychoanalytic theory in a very accessible way, without once mentioning any technical terms. Um livro com quase 30 anos mas com muitas coisas interessantes para vivermos a vida mais informados. This was also in the form of a convivial conversation between Cleese and Skynner and following the same structure as the book, albeit in an abridged form. This isn't a stereotypical self-help type of book and that makes it THE book that could save your marriage and/or the way you relate to your children.

But if you ever wanted to know why some families get along and others don't, in broad terms, I'd recommend this book highly. Czytając należy brać pod uwagę czas, kiedy była pisana i aktualny stan wiedzy psychologicznej na tamten moment. John Cleese (ator, do Monty Python) e o psiquiatra Robin Skynner conversam sobre casamento, filhos, amor, educação, paranoias, tudo aquilo que nos preocupa.I also have the life book to wade through but I think I'll have a break before doing so to give my subconscious the time to chew the fat.
