THE POWER OF LABELS will change your life
The problem of labels and labeling is widespread in modern society, but it has rarely been considered from the aspect Marsy Beron has done it. It is often that we talk about labeling specific minority ethnic or social groups, but we rarely mention how labels, with which the environment bombards us on a daily basis, affect the psyche of the individual. This problem is part of our mental health and our everyday life. “The Power of Labels” analyzes the reasons behind this psychological phenomenon and provides ideas and guidelines for ways to handle it.
The book is rather intended as a guide for its readers to encourage them to find their inner center, and maintain their balance before health problems appear.
Beron’s main focus is the distortion in self-perception that accumulates over time through communication with others and how these distortions gradually turn into beliefs, complexes and unproductive behaviors that make it difficult to achieve goals and diminish one’s satisfaction with life.
Author Marsy Beron shares many examples from her work as psychotherapist and insights on the impact of labels on the psyche and suggests ways to get out of the vicious cycle of self-blame and dependence on the approval of others.
The book contains many personal stories, exercises, a few thought experiments and many tips.
