WHEN IS TOO LATE TO START BALLET?
When is it too late to start ballet? The truth is, that really depends on the dancer. If a child has a dream of growing up to be a prima ballerina, in a professional ballet company, then they would want to start ballet classes, at a very young age, taking many classes a week, and moving on to pointe work, and then auditioning for company level classes. If you're an adult, looking for ballet classes, as a form of exercise and entertainment, there are many cities throughout our country, that have wonderful, wonderful, ballet companies, that offer adult classes, to the amateur, as well as the more seasoned dancer. Either way, ballet is a wonderful form of exercise, for all ages, shapes, and advanced levels.

"Depression, in psychology, a mood or emotional state that is marked by feelings of low self-worth or guilt and a reduced ability to enjoy life. A person who is depressed usually experiences several of the following symptoms: feelings of sadness, hopelessness, or pessimism; lowered self-esteem and heightened self-depreciation; a decrease or loss of ability to take pleasure in ordinary activities; reduced energy and vitality; slowness of thought or action; loss of appetite; and disturbed sleep or insomnia. Depression differs from simple grief or mourning, which are appropriate emotional responses to the loss of loved persons or objects."

"Self-esteem is a term used in psychology to reflect a person's overall evaluation or appraisal of his or her own worth. Self-esteem encompasses beliefs (for example, "I am competent", "I am worthy") and emotions such as triumph, despair, pride and shame. Self-esteem can apply specifically to a particular dimension (for example, "I believe I am a good writer and I feel happy about that") or have global extent (for example, "I believe I am a bad person, and feel bad about myself in general").
Psychologists[who?] usually regard self-esteem as an enduring personality characteristic ("trait" self-esteem), though normal, short-term variations ("state" self-esteem) also exist.
Synonyms or near-synonyms of self-esteem According to The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, "self-love" is "the instinct or desire to promote one's well-being."
The original normal definition presents self-esteem as a ratio found by dividing one’s successes in areas of life of importance to a given individual by the failures in them or one’s “success / pretensions”. Problems with this approach come from making self-esteem contingent upon success: this implies inherent instability because failure can occur at any moment. In the mid 1960s Morris Rosenberg and social-learning theorists defined self-esteem in terms of a stable sense of personal worth or worthiness. Nathaniel Branden in 1969 defined self-esteem as "...the experience of being competent to cope with the basic challenges of life and being worthy of happiness". According to Branden, self-esteem is the sum of self-confidence (a feeling of personal capacity) and self-respect (a feeling of personal worth). It exists as a consequence of the implicit judgement that every person does about, on one side, his/her ability to face life's challenges, that is, to understand and solve problems, and, on the other side, his right to achieve happiness, or, in other words, to respect and defend his own interests and needs. This two-factor approach, as some have also called it, provides a balanced definition that seems to be capable of dealing with limits of defining self-esteem primarily in terms of competence or worth alone.
Branden’s description of self-esteem includes the following primary properties:
self-esteem as a basic human need, i.e., "...it makes an essential contribution to the life process", "...is indispensable to normal and healthy self-development, and has a value for survival."
Self-esteem as an automatic and inevitable consequence of the sum of individuals' choices in using their consciousness
something experienced as a part of, or background to, all of the individuals thoughts, feelings and actions.
Branden's concept of self-esteem is graduated, involving three main levels:
To have a high self-esteem is to feel confidently capable for life, or, in Branden's words, to feel able and worthy, or to feel right as a person.
To have a low self-esteem corresponds to not feeling ready for life, or to feeling wrong as a person.
To have a middle ground self-esteem is to waver between the two states above, that is, to feel able and useless, right and wrong as a person, and to show these incongruities in behavior, acting at times wisely, and at rashly others, thus reinforcing insecurity.
Self-esteem is one of the higher levels of Maslow's hierarchy of needs.People with a healthy level of self-esteem
firmly believe in certain values and principles, and are ready to defend them even when finding opposition, feeling secure enough to modify them in light of experience.
are able to act according to what they think to be the best choice, trusting their own judgement, and not feeling guilty when others don't like their choice.
do not lose time worrying excessively about what happened in the past, nor about what could happen in the future. They learn from the past and plan for the future, but live in the present intensely.
fully trust in their capacity to solve problems, not hesitating after failures and difficulties. They ask others for help when they need it.
consider themselves equal in dignity to others, rather than inferior or superior, while accepting differences in certain talents, personal prestige or financial standing.
take for granted that they are an interesting and valuable person for others, at least for those with whom they have a friendship with.
resist manipulation, collaborate with others only if it seems appropriate and convenient.
admit and accept different internal feelings and drives, either positive or negative, revealing those drives to others only when they choose.
are able to enjoy a great variety of activities.
are sensitive to feelings and needs of others; respect generally accepted social rules, and claim no right or desire to prosper at others' expense.
A person with low self-esteem may show some of the following symptoms:
Heavy self-criticism, tending to create a habitual state of dissatisfaction with oneself.
Hypersensitivity to criticism, which makes oneself feel easily attacked and experience obstinate resentment against critics.
Chronic indecision, not so much because of lack of information, but from an exaggerated fear of making a mistake.
Excessive will to please: being unwilling to say "no", out of fear of displeasing the petitioner.
Perfectionism, or self-demand to do everything attempted "perfectly" without a single mistake, which can lead to frustration when perfection is not achieved.
NEUROTIC guilt: one is condemned for behaviors which not always are objectively bad, exaggerates the magnitude of mistakes or offenses and complains about them indefinitely, never reaching full forgiveness.
Floating hostility, irritability out in the open, always on the verge of exploding even for unimportant things; an attitude characteristic of somebody who feels bad about everything, who is disappointed or unsatisfied with everything.
Defensive tendencies, a general negative (one is pessimistic about everything: life, future, and, above all, oneself) and a general lack of will to enjoy life.
High self-esteem correlates highly with self-reported happiness. However, it is not clear which, if either, necessarily leads to the other.
"Additionally, self-esteem has been found to be related to forgiveness in close relationships, in that people with high self-esteem will be more forgiving than people with low self-esteem."
Outline of self
Self-evaluation maintenance theory
This vision of Freud, in which it is the concept of self, except in isolated cases criticized by Rossi (1990), argues that the self is not a concept of psychoanalysis belated attempts to prove that Freud I used the term (I), to indicate that the self is the ego, without confusion or misunderstanding. Following this argument, the time would have been understood by the father of psychoanalysis, referring to the person as an object, during the term of the person I like. Therefore Rossi no special time of joy in SELF is its essential strangeness inherent spiritualism of the German concept explains the inner being, the self.
"On the other hand, in fact, Freud introduction to narcissism (1914) underlined the special nature of the ego from the self and libidinal ego character, inspired by instinctive originally planned investments, the image of the body taken, and is powered libidinal object in this context [of the investment organization of economic co-existence with narcissistic libido libido object, the instinctive investment on the objects ] indicates."

BASIC AND GENERAL DEFINITIONS OF MALE BEHAVIOUR IN PSYCHOLOGY&PSYCHOANALYSIS
From Wikipedia,the free encyclopedia
"Masculine psychology is a term sometimes used to describe and categorize issues concerning the gender related psychology of male human identity, as well as the issues that men confront during their lives.[who?] One stream emphasises gender differences and has a scientific and empirical approach, while the other, more therapeutic in orientation, is more closely aligned to the psychoanalytic tradition. It also relates to concepts such as masculinity and machismo."
"-Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung argued that a father is very important to a boy's development of identity. In his book Absent Fathers, Lost Sons  Canadian Jungian analyst Guy Corneau writes that the presence of the father's body during the son's developmental phases is integral in the son developing a positive sense of self as masculine. Corneau also argues that if the son does not develop positively towards the father's male body, then the son runs the risk of developing negatively towards all bodies. Jacques Lacan argued that in the son's mind, the father's body represents the law, and that the role of the father's body is to break the attachment the son feels to the mother and by extension his own."
"-Freudian analysts claim that all sons feel they are in competition with their father and often feel in a battle against the father. (Sigmund Freud referred to this as Oedipus Complex.) Freudian psychologists claim that the risk the son runs is that in some cases it is more difficult to win the battle against the father than to lose the battle against the father. This is because a common result of winning the battle against the father is that the son suffers tremendous guilt."

What is depression?
Depression is a common mental disorder that presents with depressed mood, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt or low self-worth, disturbed sleep or appetite, low energy, and poor concentration. These problems can become chronic or recurrent and lead to substantial impairments in an individual's ability to take care of his or her everyday responsibilities. At its worst, depression can lead to suicide, a tragic fatality associated with the loss of about 850 000 lives every year.
Depression is the leading cause of disability as measured by YLDs and the 4th leading contributor to the global burden of disease (DALYs) in 2000. By the year 2020, depression is projected to reach 2nd place of the ranking of DALYs calcuated for all ages, both sexes. Today, depression is already the 2nd cause of DALYs in the age category 15-44 years for both sexes combined.
Depression occurs in persons of all genders, ages, and backgrounds.
* Depression is common, affecting about 121 million people worldwide.
* Depression is among the leading causes of disability worldwide.
* Depression can be reliably diagnosed and treated in primary care.
* Fewer than 25 % of those affected have access to effective treatments.
Depression can be reliably diagnosed in primary care. Antidepressant medications and brief, structured forms of psychotherapy are effective for 60-80 % of those affected and can be delivered in primary care. However, fewer than 25 % of those affected (in some countries fewer than 10 %) receive such treatments. Barriers to effective care include the lack of resources, lack of trained providers, and the social stigma associated with mental disorders including depression.
Primary care based quality improvement programs for depression have been shown to improve the
