For your own good : hidden cruelty in child-rearing and the roots of violence by Alice Miller( Book )

134 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 12 languages and held by 2,738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This contemporary classic by a celebrated Swiss psychoanalyst explores the serious if not gravely dangerous consequences parental cruelty can bring to bear on children everywhere. With her typically lucid, strong, and poetic language, Miller investigates the personal stories and case histories of various self-destructive and/or violent individuals to expand on her theories about the long-term affects of abusive child-rearing. Her conclusions--on what sort of parenting can create a drug addict, or a murderer, or a Hitler--offer much insight, and make a good deal of sense, while also straying far from psychoanalytic dogma about human nature, which Miller vehemently rejects. This important study paints a shocking picture of the violent world--indeed, of the ever-more-violent world--that each generation helps to create when traditional upbringing, with its hidden cruelty, is perpetuated. The book also presents readers with useful solutions in this regard--namely, to resensitize the victimized child who has been trapped within the adult, and to unlock the emotional life that has been frozen in repression.--From amazon.com

"Using numerous case histories gleaned from her practice, as well as examining the biographical stories of celebrated writers such as Marcel Proust, Virginia Woolf, Friedrich Nietzsche, and others, Miller shows how a child's emotional traumas, repressed humiliation, and bottled rage can manifest themselves as serious adult health problems. In discussing the lives of these literary giants, Miller explores the known or, in some cases, unknown traumas that haunted each author's childhood. More important, Miller connects the writers' painful childhoods with their later afflictions, which included depression, anorexia, cancer, and even insanity. While examining everything from parental spanking to sexual abuse and emotional blackmail, Miller exposes the societal pressures that converge to harm children."--Jacket

La présente traduction est faite d'après l'édition allemande de 1994. Selon toute vraisemblance, la nouvelle traductrice a une approche différente pour présenter et traduire chacun des trois articles; autre possibilité, l'auteure aurait revu et modifié quelques éléments de ses travaux. Des questions variées sont abordées: 1. L'enfant doué; la recherche du vrai soi; le travail de psychothérapeute - 2. Dépression et grandiosité: deux formes du déni - 3. Le cercle vicieux du mépris.
