School is designed for the extroverts of the world. OK, maybe that's not entirely fair. Many teachers design their classrooms to meet the needs of different personality types and different learning styles, but if we step back and think about the schedule of the typical school day, it's not designed...

이 글은 허핑턴포스트US 블로거이자 아동, 청소년 심리치료사 케시 헐리의 글을 번역, 편집한 것입니다.


아버지는 자살하셨다.


요즘은 이 이야기를 별로 하지 않는다. 이미 너무 오래전 일이기 때문이다. 아버지가 자살한 후, 이를 회복하는 건 매우 길고도 비통한 과정이었다. 슬픔에 잠긴 채 난 혼자라고 느꼈고, 혼돈과...
