New PDF release: Sálvate, la vida te espera (Spanish Edition)

By Boris Cyrulnik

Un lúcido análisis sobre l. a. memoria, l. a. imaginación y los recuerdos a través de una historia genuine de superación, pero también sobre el trauma, sobre las heridas y l. a. sanación.

Boris Cyrulnik, eminente psiquiatra y psicólogo, profundo conocedor de los angeles mente, vivió una infancia traumática. Separado de sus padres, que fueron asesinados en campos de concentración, vivió como un fugitivo, escondido en casas de familias de acogida y en orfanatos. Como los angeles mayoría de los supervivientes al volver de los campos, y como l. a. mayoría de personas que han vivido situaciones traumáticas durante su infancia, Boris Cyrulnik se refugió en el silencio después de los angeles guerra.

Sálvate, l. a. vida te espera es un libro sobre el trauma, sobre las heridas y l. a. sanación, sobre los angeles imposibilidad de contar en un mundo en el que nadie quiere escuchar. Sobre los angeles indiferencia que mata y los vínculos que salvan, sobre las ilusiones del recuerdo, sobre ese fenómeno extraño que se llama memoria, que no es l. a. reconstrucción del pasado sino su representación, y que no cuenta los angeles verdad histórica de los hechos sino otra verdad, todavía más genuine: los angeles de los angeles personality que recuerda. A través del relato de su propia historia, Boris Cyrulnik ayuda a todos aquellos que intentan escapar de un pasado marcado por el dolor.

Reseñas:
«Los comentarios sobre el libro de Cyrulnik no aportan nada. Hay que leerlo. Absolutamente. "Mi vida psychological se había detenido a los dos años, cuando mi madre, tras el alistamiento de mi padre en el ejército francés, se quedó sola y angustiada por los angeles proposal de su inminente detención. Después siguieron unos años de persecución, de trato constante con los angeles muerte y de aislamiento sensorial. Los desgarros afectivos, repetidos una y otra vez, l. a. prohibición de salir o de ir a l. a. escuela, el sentimiento de ser un monstruo hicieron imposible el menor desarrollo. No sufrí durante estas agresiones ya que mi alma estaba paralizada. Uno no siente nada cuando está en 'agonía psíquica', se respira un poco, y ya está." ¿Qué más añadir? ¿Qué más decir?»
Valérie Trierweiler, Paris-Match

«Boris Cyrulnik abre las puertas de su "cripta", de su caja de Pandora de los angeles que emerge un relato autobiográfico conmovedor... Reconstruye su pasado con sus abismos, sus sufrimientos, sus recuerdos engañosos, sus dudas, sus zonas sombrías... Como un investigador, reconstruye el puzle de su vida. Boris Cyrulnik es un gran resiliente. A través de este libro, se toma a sí mismo como objeto de estudio. Intentando discernir entre lo verdadero y lo falso, acorrala sus recuerdos. Algunos reales, otros enriquecidos, inconscientemente, para dar coherencia a lo impensable, para poder sobrevivir.»
Le Monde

Así empieza Sálvate, l. a. vida te espera:

«He nacido dos veces. l. a. primera vez no estaba allí. Mi cuerpo vino al mundo el 26 de julio de 1937 en Burdeos. Me lo han contado, y estoy obligado a creerlo ya que no guardo ningún recuerdo. Mi segundo nacimiento está grabado en mi memoria. Una noche fui arrestado por unos hombres armados que rodeaban mi cama. Venían a buscarme para matarme. Mi historia nace aquella noche.»
