"The Yellow Wallpaper" is a 6,­000-­word short story by American writer Charlotte Perkins Gilman, first published in January 1892 in New England Magazine. It is regarded as an important early work of American feminist literature, illustrating attitudes in the 19th century toward women's physical and mental health.
The story is written in the first person as a series of journal entries. The narrator is a woman whose husband — a physician — has confined her to the upstairs bedroom of a house he has rented for the summer. She is forbidden from working and has to hide her journal entries from him so that she can recuperate from what he has diagnosed as a "temporary nervous depression — a slight hysterical tendency;­" a diagnosis common to women in that period. The windows of the room are barred, and there is a gate across the top of the stairs, allowing her husband to control her access to the rest of the house.
The story illustrates the effect of confinement on the narrator's mental . . .

Affascina e ferisce. È sempre più intelligente della media. È sensibile, seduttivo, grandioso. Ma talvolta si mostra improvvisamente depresso e inadeguato alle circostanze. Cosa vuole il narciso dalle donne? In molti casi vuole solo essere aiutato a piacersi, piacersi, piacersi. E se un giorno fosse una donna ad avere bisogno di lui? Ecco che cominciano i guai, perché il narciso punta sempre all'assoluto, ed è tutto assorbito da imprese troppo grandi ed eroiche per ammettere dubbi o distrazioni. Questo libro, arguto e scorrevole, affronta una tematica serissima, approfondita in anni di lavoro clinico, ed è un vero e proprio manuale di sopravvivenza: perché cambiare il narciso forse è impossibile, ma riuscire a conviverci è anche una questione di scelte e di strategie.

It's no surprise that our fast-­paced, overly self-­analytical culture is pushing many people-­especially women-­to spend countless hours thinking about negative ideas, feelings, and experiences. Renowned psychologist Dr. Susan Nolen-­Hoeksema calls this overthinking, and her groundbreaking research shows that an increasing number of women-­more than half of those in her extensive study-­are doing it too much and too often, hindering their ability to lead a satisfying life. Overthinking can be anything from fretting about the big questions such as "What am I doing with my life?­" to losing sleep over a friend's innocent comment. It is causing many women to end up sad, anxious, or seriously depressed, and Nolen-­Hoeksema challenges the assumption-­heralded by so many pop-­psychology pundits of the last several decades-­that constantly expressing and analyzing our emotions is a good thing. In, Nolen-­Hoeksema shows us what causes so many women to be overthinkers and provides concrete strategies . . .

We all know love matters, but in this groundbreaking book positive emotions expert Barbara Fredrickson shows us how much. Even more than happiness and optimism, love holds the key to improving our mental and physical health as well as lengthening our lives. Using research from her own lab, Fredrickson redefines love not as a stable behemoth, but as micro-­moments of connection between people—even strangers. She demonstrates that our capacity for experiencing love can be measured and strengthened in ways that improve our health and longevity. Finally, she introduces us to informal and formal practices to unlock love in our lives, generate compassion, and even self-­soothe. Rare in its scope and ambitious in its message, Love 2.­0 will reinvent how you look at and experience our most powerful emotion.

Weaves together biblical exposition and practical application to demonstrate how emotions relate to the Christian life. Emotions are a vital part of what it means to be a human being made in the image of God and redeemed in Jesus Christ. But often our emotions confuse and mislead us. So what is the proper place for emotions in a Christian's walk of faith? In Brian Borgman draws from his extensive biblical knowledge and his pastoral experience to help readers understand both divine and human emotions. After laying a biblical foundation he moves on to practical application, focusing on how Christians can put to death ungodly emotional displays and also cultivate godly emotions. This biblically informed, practical volume is helpful for pastors, counselors, and serious-­minded Christians who wish to develop a full-­orbed faith that encompasses their emotional life.

Self-­mutilation is a behavior so shocking that it is almost never discussed. Yet estimates are that upwards of eight million Americans are chronic self-­injurers. They are people who use knives, razor blades, or broken glass to cut themselves. Their numbers include the actor Johnny Depp, Girl Interrupted author Susanna Kaysen, and the late Princess Diana. Mistakenly viewed as suicide attempts or senseless masochism--­even by many health professionals--­"cutting" is actually a complex means of coping with emotional pain. Marilee Strong explores this hidden epidemic through case studies, startling new research from psychologists, trauma experts, and neuroscientists, and the heartbreaking insights of cutters themselves--­who range from troubled teenagers to middle-­age professionals to grandparents. Strong explains what factors lead to self-­mutilation, why cutting helps people manage overwhelming fear and anxiety, and how cutters can heal both their internal and external wounds and break . . .

Drawing on cutting-­edge neuroscience to better understand emotion.­We are hardwired to connect with one another, and we connect through our emotions. Our brains, bodies, and minds are inseparable from the emotions that animate them. Normal human development relies on the cultivation of relationships with others to form and nurture the self-­regulatory circuits that enable emotion to enrich, rather than enslave, our lives. And just as emotionally traumatic events can tear apart the fabric of family and psyche, the emotions can become powerful catalysts for the transformations that are at the heart of the healing process. In this book, the latest addition to the Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology, leading neuroscientists, developmental psychologists, therapy researchers, and clinicians illuminate how to regulate emotion in a healthy way. A variety of emotions, both positive and negative, are examined in detail, drawing on both research and clinical observations. The role of . . .
