Psychosemiosis as a key to body-mind continuum

£95.00

Product description

Boo is in as new condition.
The aim of this book is to study the mindbody continuum from the viewpoint of psychosemiosis. Psychosemiosis means that the human mind emerges and develops using a coding method of signs in mutual interaction with the significant others (usually in relation to parents of a child). The author developed a four-stage symbolisation-reflectiveness model to study the psychosemiotic process and its evolution in the human mind. If the development of the psychosemiotic process is inhibited and/or disturbed, mental health disorders are the consequence. The inhibited and/or disturbed psychosemiotic process may be initiated again in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. This book examines the development of the personality of university students from the viewpoint of psychosemiosis. The aim is to show that: 1. Psychosemiosis offers a key to understanding the dilemma between the human body and mind; 2. The human mind emerges as the development of psychosemiosis which means that the human mind binds the emotionally meaningful interaction with significant others by means of the coding system of signs; 3. The four-stage symbolisation-reflectiveness model is suitable for the study of the psychosemiotic process and its evolution in the human mind; 4. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy has a curative effect on the development of the psychosemiotic process in the human mind.
