What is healing? What really determines it? How can we make it happen? It is increasingly clear that there is not just one single kind of medicine and that paths to healing flow through the integration of multiple pieces of knowledge and the combination of many perspectives.
In light of the latest research into neurophysiology, psyche science and quantum physics, this book outlines the seven principles of the powerful interaction between psyche and body in healing processes, providing scientific answers to questions about the mechanisms which trigger it and identifying therapies that allow us to turn these internal switches on.
This is demonstrated through reflections, examples, and real cases shared by the author, a psychiatrist and doctor who has completed several rigorous trainings but maintains an open mind and has been committed for more than 15 years to seek healing of serious illnesses in the psychosomatic unit by using therapeutic synergies that strengthen official care practices with innovative treatments, with her passionate work to painlessly repair suffering, with the patient, or rather the person, always and constantly at the center.
Erica Francesca Poli is a psychiatrist, psychotherapist and counselor, as well as an expert for the Milan Court as a forensic psychiatrist and criminologist. Member of scientific societies, including IEDTA (International Experiential Dynamic Therapy Association), ISTDP Institute and OPIFER (Organization of Italian Psychoanalysts Federation and Registry), she has an in-depth and eclectic psychotherapeutic training that has provided her with the ability to face the world of the psyche up to to spirituality, developing a personal interdisciplinary and psychosomatic working method.
Always constantly updated, through the active participation and organization of courses, conferences and scientific publications, Dr. Poli dedicates herself to the study of integrative medicine with the implementation of traditional pharmacopoeia with phytotherapeutic and nutraceutical products. He very often resorts to the use of innovative therapeutic techniques strongly rooted in new neuro-scientific knowledge on the functioning of the mind, therefore he does not limit himself to treating individual mental disorders, but takes care and shows attention to the person in his totality of mind and body. She and she are passionate about dance and she has managed to transfer this passion to others, making it a treatment tool especially for cancer patients.
Her guiding principle is to consider the human being as an emotional energy field that manifests itself through a body.
Her words, the emotions that transpire through her works are illuminating for many; she manages to make even concepts that are not really simple and understandable to everyone, her books and her videos never get bored and are always an excellent starting point to start a journey of introspection and greater self-knowledge.

“How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie is an instruction (and life) manual essential for reflecting on the importance of communication in relationships and the right approach.
Carnegie notes that 85% of success in any business is due to human qualities such as personality, education and the ability to be loved and followed by other people.
Thus it turns out that even in the most technical professions a good and solid knowledge of the sector is not enough to guarantee success, but on the contrary, the so-called Soft Skills are even more incisive on the scale.
Dale Carnegie divides his exposition into four parts, each of which focuses on different ways of persuading those around us.
In the first part he sets out a fundamental principle, namely that of not criticizing and condemning the work of people, but rather understanding the underlying reasons. Thus teaching how to deal with people, and get what you want, simply by changing the approach and arousing the same will in others.
In the second part he explains how to be welcomed in any situation, and leave a good impression from the beginning, arousing the interest of the interlocutor.
In the following pages he tackles the issue of leadership with the motto “Whoever has a good technical background and is also able to express their ideas, command, arouse enthusiasm among collaborators, will be a candidate for the levers of power.”
The 5,000,000 readers who have purchased this book claim to have achieved significant results. Here are some of them:

How nice would it be if in just five minutes we were able to go from an emotional state of malaise to one of well-being? So what would our life be like if we had the strategies to quickly transform moods of stress, anxiety, uncertainty or fear into states of joy, determination and confidence? And what would our days be like if we could calm down recurring negative thoughts so as to naturally access a mental space of calm and serenity? When negative thoughts and emotions dominate our days, we no longer have energy and psycho-emotional space to dedicate to our goals. Suffocated by the grip of malaise, our vitality, motivation and focus simply fail, giving way to a sometimes dissatisfied and pessimistic personality. A question therefore arises spontaneously: “How do you explain that in the world there are people who always manage to see the glass as half full, so as to allow their optimism to attract favorable opportunities and circumstances?”. The secret to becoming an “architect” of one’s own reality lies in transforming one’s psycho-emotional state into well-being and potential. In this book, I will reveal how to transform your personal reality starting from the strengthening of your thoughts and emotions, so as to increase your personal well-being and your potential for attraction through Neuro-Emotional Education.

After the great success of Emotional Intelligence, the psychologist Daniel Goleman returns after ten years to illuminate the minds by deepening the psychological study of social neurosciences.
In Social Intelligence, the American psychologist investigates the intrinsically sociable nature of the human brain, and how interpersonal relationships shape the mind and affect the body.
Entering into scientific studies and arguing with concrete examples from everyday life, Goleman explains how emotions are contagious, as much as real viruses. This book allows us to explore the complexity of the human being and the effects that relationships generate on the internal state of well-being.
According to Daniel Goleman, the brain is naturally structured to interact positively with other human beings, establishing more or less strong bonds according to each person’s social skills. Social awareness allows us to understand the moods of others through the development of an empathizing and listening personality. For the Californian psychologist, those who manage to identify themselves with others and perceive their feelings and then establish harmonious relationships are socially intelligent.
Social intelligence originates from different brain mechanisms that are predisposed and structured to connect us to other people, such as the Mirror Neurons and the Amygdala which are the undisputed protagonists in empathic perception. Social intelligence therefore seems to have a genetic imprint, however today thanks to social neuroscience, we know that it is possible to develop a relational talent also through social awareness.
According to Goleman, the problem with modern society lies in how people relate to each other. In harmful relationship the other person is seen as an object: someone who can be exploited and from which to take advantage of it, without remorse or guilt.
In this regard Goleman provides the tools to recognize three different categories of potentially dangerous people, socially able, capable of manipulating others, but totally without empathy: narcissists, Machiavellians and psychopaths.
Goleman therefore proposes us to develop innate social skills, “training” our social intelligence and actively seeking dialogue with each other, especially today where the massive diffusion of new technologies forces us to distance relationships, closing us in a real just “social autism”.
Fully enhancing this type of intelligence allows us to live our relationships with fullness, belonging and love, to educate our children to happiness, to become leaders and teachers capable of stimulating everyone’s creativity and hidden resources.
Daniel Goleman (Stockton, March 7, 1946) is an American psychologist, writer and journalist. He studied at Amherst College, where he was a pupil of Alfred F. Jones. He graduated from Harvard, specializing in “clinical psychology and personality development”, where he later also taught.
He has long written in the New York Times about topics related to neurology and behavioral sciences.
Goleman’s best-known work is “Emotional Intelligence” from 1995.
Goleman has received many awards and recognition for his research: two Pulitzer Prize nominations for his articles, a career award from the American Psychological Association and election as a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Society is changing rapidly under the pressure of the great technological revolution. New and disruptive business models are changing the industrial scenario while organizations must respond to questions of constant innovation, management and care of a customer who is increasingly an active and aware part of the processes of creating products and services.
The relationship between people and organization has changed the reference models. In this context, the HR function is called to occupy a strategic position: it must become a real and powerful agent of change, through new skills, models and tools. And this transformation must begin from itself.
This book aims to provide HR managers with new reference paradigms, new models and new concrete operational tools.
After redefining the playing field in which the managers of human resources operate, each HR practice is deconstructed and reassembled in an innovative way in terms of the process, the skills that the function must develop, the technologies that it can use to be effective.
Several contributions from company managers act as a real counterpoint to the proposed models and with the help of specialists and scholars on the subject, further upcoming scenarios are illustrated: smart working, big data and neuroscience.

In this ground-breaking collection, Mary Helen Immordino-Yang—an affective neuroscientist, human development psychologist, and former public school teacher—presents a decade of work with the potential to revolutionize educational theory and practice by deeply enriching our understanding of the complex connection between emotion and learning.
With her signature talent for explaining and interpreting neuroscientific findings in practical, teacher-relevant terms, Immordino-Yang offers two simple but profound ideas: first, that emotions are such powerful motivators of learning because they activate brain mechanisms that originally evolved to manage our basic survival; and second, that meaningful thinking and learning are inherently emotional, because we only think deeply about things we care about. Together, these insights suggest that in order to motivate students for academic learning, produce deep understanding, and ensure the transfer of educational experiences into real-world skills and careers, educators must find ways to leverage the emotional aspects of learning.
Immordino-Yang has both the gift for captivating readers with her research and the ability to connect this research to everyday learning and teaching. She examines true stories of learning success with relentless curiosity and an illuminating mixture of the scientific and the human.
What are feelings, and how does the brain support them? What role do feelings play in the brain’s learning process? This book unpacks these crucial questions and many more, including the neurobiological, developmental, and evolutionary origins of creativity, facts and myths about mirror neurons, and how the perspective of social and affective neuroscience can inform the design of learning technologies.
Mary Helen Immordino-Yang, developmental psychologist and neuroscientist, she teaches at the University of Southern California. A student of Antonio Damasio, she had the opportunity to participate in advanced neuroscience research before and after his teaching experience.
Rupert Sheldrake, British biologist and essayist, in his writings: A New Science of Life (1981) and The Presence of the Past (1988), elaborates the theory of morphogenetic fields: invisible forces present in a system (a complex organism composed of several parts) that does not identify it with one of its components, but with the system itself. The “morphic field”, responsible for the organization, structure and shape of the system, would have its own memory, determined by the contribution of each member.
The book explains:
– how the past forms and behaviors of organisms determine those of similar organisms in the present through morphic resonance.
– non-material connections that allow direct communication through time and space.
Rupert Sheldrake proposes that morphogenetic fields are responsible for the characteristic shape and organization of systems in biology, chemistry and physics – and that they have measurable physical effects. Using his theory of morphic resonance, Sheldrake was able to reinterpret the regularities of nature as more similar to habits than to immutable laws, offering a new understanding of life and consciousness.
Sheldrake demonstrates that the past forms and behavior of organisms influence the organisms present through direct intangible connections through time and space. This may explain why new chemicals become easier to crystallize worldwide the more often their crystals have already formed, and why when laboratory rats learned to navigate a maze in one place, rats elsewhere appear learn it more easily. With over two decades of new research and data, Rupert Sheldrake provides an even stronger case for the validity of formative causality theory that can radically transform the way we see our world and our future.
The three basic principles of the Formal Causality hypothesis:
1 – Morphogenetic fields are a field that until now has not been recognised and taken into consideration by physics and cannot be understood through classical mechanistic conceptions, but require absolutely new concepts.
2 – Organisms evolve. They have a history and, thanks to a process called morphic resonance, they contain within them a memory. Each individual belonging to a species draws on the collective memory of the species and tunes in to its past members, in turn contributing to the further development of the species itself.
3 – Morphic fields are memories of influence within space-time, located in and around the systems they organize and structure with their information.
The basic function of morphic fields is to impose an order on the indeterminism of the systems that preside over them: they work at a subatomic level, acting as programmed and schematic restrictions on the multitude of probable events. Morphic fields guide systems towards specific objectives, which represent the limits towards which a dynamic system is attracted (what Renè Thom in his chaos and catastrophe theory calls “attractors”).
Rupert Sheldrake is a biologist and author of more than 85 scientific papers and 9 books, and the co-author of 6 books. He was among the top 100 Global Thought Leaders for 2013, as ranked by the Duttweiler Institute, Zurich, Switzerland’s leading think tank. On ResearchGate, the largest scientific and academic online network, his RG score of 33.5 puts him among the top 7.5% of researchers, based on citations of his peer-reviewed publications.
He studied natural sciences at Cambridge University, where he was a Scholar of Clare College, took a double first class honours degree and was awarded the University Botany Prize (1963). He then studied philosophy and history of science at Harvard University, where he was a Frank Knox Fellow (1963-64), before returning to Cambridge, where he took a Ph.D. in biochemistry (1967). He was a Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge (1967-73), where he was Director of Studies in biochemistry and cell biology. As the Rosenheim Research Fellow of the Royal Society (1970-73), he carried out research on the development of plants and the ageing of cells in the Department of Biochemistry at Cambridge University. While at Cambridge, together with Philip Rubery, he discovered the mechanism of polar auxin transport, the process by which the plant hormone auxin is carried from the shoots towards the roots.
