From my psychology practice to the podcast

June 29, 2021

Many women I’ve encountered through the years in my practice in Shanghai, New York, Stockholm, and Zürich share similar challenges with their narcissistic partners. I’ve decided to discuss this very peculiar personality disorder in a podcast, especially since I’m part of a Columbia University program focussing on an evidence-based approach in treating people with narcissistic personality disorders (NPD). 

 

Steps to take:

  • Talk and disclose to a friend, don’t protect the narcissistic person. 
  • Be open and share what’s happening behind the scenes. 
  • What you need is a support network around you. 
  • Reassurance and appreciation for you as a person. 
  • Have the freedom to move on.

Couples time vs. family time vs. me time

June 29, 2021

We oft struggle to find time for ourselves. Time to do things according to our time table, our wishes, our needs. It’s essential for our own and our surrounding that we can breath, because only if we function well, our surrounding functions well too: “take the oxygen mask self before helping others”. 

How to get started:

  • Early mornings are for you. 
  • Exercise, as a priority! 
  • Put the date with yourself into your calendar (no excuse to say no to yourself anymore!)
  • Treat yourself to a lunch by yourself, a massage, get a manicure, anything you like (guess what? I work while doing these things too. You can get in a massage while sitting in a meeting, writing emails, etc. if you can’t find any other time, that’s better than nothing).
  • Be creative in shuffling out time for yourself.

Skills and Games

June 22, 2021

Skills and Games

 

In today’s episode I’m discussing how life skills can be learned by playing computer games, together with my uncle and game expert Marc Bodmer, who has been working in the field of interactive media for more than 25 years.

Marc talked about the seven survival skills, according to Harvard Professor Tony Wagner, that are trained by playing computer games. Yet, the challenge of the transfer to professional life and school remains. These seven survival skills are the following:

 

  1. Criticial Thinking & Problem-Solving

 

  1. Collaboration Across Networks & Leading by Influence

 

  1. Agility & Adaptability

 

  1. Initiative & Entrepreneurialism

 

  1. Effective Oral & Written Communication

 

  1. Accessing & Analysing Information

 

  1. Curiosity & Imagination

 

This is the fourth episode of a series focusing on video games and the interdependence of interactive entertainment and players of all age groups.

Let’s talk about female sexuality

May 10, 2021

“Female independence starts with intellectual and sexual freedom”. @unesurcent

To be fully empowered as a woman, we need to find access to our female sexuality. The desire, passion, seduction, and surrender to our unique self. 

Today, I’m in conversation with Alexandra Haas founder of Special Moments. We discuss the role of the female in desire, pleasure, seduction, power, and sexual freedom.

 

Alex shares how to get started:

⁃Don’t hesitate to communicate your sexual preferences.

⁃Focus on your own desires and own them.

⁃Treat yourself with respect and expect it from others.

⁃Explore the world of sexuality and dare to share your experience.

⁃It’s rewarding to provide sexual pleasure to your partner

The psychology of our sensuality

April 25, 2021

Our skin is the biggest organ, our face is said to be the mirror of our soul. Yet, many times when we’re to busy doing other things, we forget to take proper care of it.

We are all entitled to shine, let the glow sparkle.

Choose the Right Game

April 4, 2021

In today’s episode I’m discussing the way to choose the right computer game with my uncle and game expert Marc Bodmer, who has been working in the field of interactive media for more than 25 years. Marc talked about the myth of computer games and violence. Recent research, Marc shared showed no relationship between violent computer games and violence offline. He emphasized, how important it is to follow age guidelines, and content appropriate to the preference of the player. He’s not a fan of the free-2-play-model and suggests that families should look at subscription models like Apple’s Arcade or Google’s Play Pass. And: It’s valuable to play with your child and for children to play with patience together with their parents.

 

This is the second episode of a series focusing on video games and the interdependence of interactive entertainment and players of all age groups.
