Newborn neurological development doesn’t happen owing to a genetic nature, but on the basis of the specific parental-caregivers caring each baby can have. First brain (right hemisphere) is constructed on this basis and it conditioned every child learning: each first learning will conditionate the subsequent ones. In such a way individual’s mind is constructed, and each person has its specific character, personality, behaviour. Nobody has a mind equal to another one, as nobody has a brain which can be equal to another one. (…)

People believe sexuality is a biological event, which concerns genitalia and is regulated by the istinct: genitalia produce pleasure and pleasure cause emotions. This is a wrong idea, produced by our conscious-ness. Instinct does not exist in humans. Sex is learned from the first relationalship. Sexuality is due to a complex neural structuring in our Emotional Brain, which is progressively constructed along the individual life, from the infant attachment, through several interpersonal experiences, till adulthood. Emotional Brain works in a quite unconscious way: the subjectivity of an individual depends from it, but a person may feel only few misleadind feeling from his/her emotional brain working. Some of these feeling may be felt as sexual when he/her come to have any behaviors that may be called sexual. Pleasure is not produced by genitalia through specific neural pathways, but by a “lecture”, by our unconscious emotional brain. It occurs when some environmental, interpersonal and intrapsychic situations are organized in that neuropsychic structure built in our emotional brain, that constitute our individual sexual dimension. When his unconscious work occurs, our emotional brain gives orders to our body and genitalia. (…)

In this last years infant-psychoanalysis has much developed and an integration with Attachment Theory’s researches and techniques happened: so many and different Psychotherapy Schools developed. These psychotherapies are focused on the mother (or caregiver) rather than on the child, chiefly if he is not a baby. Principal vehicle of the communication which incomes between the therapists and his “patients” is not verbal, like adult psychoanalysis. Such a development allowed to discover that therapeutic effect – that is what make mental structures change – also in adult depends on affective messages, vehicled by that non verbal communication which constitutes that specific interpersonal relation.

Many years after the end of his long and enduring psychoanalysis a patient gave his analyst a dossier in which he had reconstructed his infancy story, as he could understand it by his analysis in his inner psychopathology sources. So the analyst wrote his Family story like a romance. The author aims to demonstrate how many events, which seems to be meaningless and negligibly in the life of a child, may add up together in arousing a psychopathology. (…)

Mankind wrote about sexuality and love since some form of writing was invented. Even before, Homo sapiens tried to depict it in primitive rock paintings, later developing it into sculptures, and he felt the need to celebrate it by singing, dancing and in poetry, and to regulate it in the social and religious orders, and by some ones to exalt it in every shape and form. The subject seems to have occupied man’s mind in a poignant and continuous manner. Why is this so? (…)

Neurosciences and Perinatal Clinical Psychology developments demonstrated that individual neuropsychic structure develops since foetal time and its basic development happens in the first two years of life. First development quality qualifies every later (subsequent) development and so adult individual mind destiny. This developmental pathway does not happen by genetics laws, but by relational learning’s. (…)

Today an increasing number of people feel psychic discomfort, generally labelled as stress, and they therefore say: “I may need psychotherapy.” But there is much hesitation between such a statement and its realization. Many other people don’t even feel the need for it, crushed by the fast pace of contemporary society, while, as a result of the social situation, they would actually have a great need for it. The first hesitation is due to ignorance, or rather to the misconception of what is meant by “psychotherapy”. (…)
