Editorial August 2015 - Prof.Dr. Aurel ROMILA

                                                      P S I H I A T R I E

Psihiatria este o meserie.
Se invata ingrijind bolnavi psihici, cu un maestro si citind cat mai mult  si reflectand.
Dupa ani de practica si citit apare (nu e obligatoriu) o cristalizare, o conceptie, o Wrltanschaung despre boala psihica.
Din pacate comunicarea dintre psihiatri este slaba. Congresele provoaca confuzie dar exiba pe dominatori,  pseudodescoperitori si ajuta la titluri megalomanice  a unor inchipuiti.
Cu timpul memoria are limite, care se pot corecta prin efort de rememorare schematic, abstract.
Postulatul fundamental este dezvoltarea personalitatii bolnavului prin psihoterapie si psihofarmacologie si asimilarea esentelor din medicina (mai ales neurologie si endocrinologie), din psihologie si filozofie (mai ales logica).
Realitatea sociala sta pe o baza psihlologica, care la randul ei sta pe o baza psihiatrica. Asta explica lupta continua pentru existenta si ratarile.
Toata lumea crede ca stie psihiatrie ca si futbol, cu exceptia psihiatrului care inca nu a spus ultimul cuvant….

Zbor deasupra României pe acordurile muzicii lui Ciprian Porumbescu

Aceasta este România, văzută de sus pe acordurile muzicii lui Ciprian Porumbescu.

Filmările poartă semnătura lui Laurenţiu Bălăceanu, un alt roman pasionat de fotografie şi înregistrări video aeriale, care întâi de toate, a fost pasionat de pilotajul prin radiotransmisie, iar mai apoi s-a gândit să ataşeze mikrokopterului un aparat digital cu care să imortalizeze imagini de o frumuseţe aparte.
