I am a child/adolescent psychiatrist,I have been practicing in residential treatment center for the last 7 years,with great pleasure,and with high privilege,I have been humbeled by my work with my patients,who most of them endured the hardest,and the most difficult life conditions,yet they continue to live and even to love and care for others,they continue with some assistance to have hope about their future,they continue to work,and to learn,to write,and to paint,to laugh and to simply have fun,depite the fact that their life has been unfair,unjust by being mentally ill or by being sexually and/or physically abused by their parents or their family,without having any protection nor safety.

I believe,that Human Biengs are RESILIANT,and those abused children have taught me that people have Inner strength,and Resilience,with which we are able to overcome major traumas,and continue to enjoy our lives.

My patients,thank you,you have been my support,particularly,when I have some hardship.
