I am very happy and challenged to be authoring along with honorable colleagues (A. Iorio, F. Emiliani, L. Palareti, J. Pasi)  the title “Psychological therapies for people with hemophilia and their families” for Cochrane Reviews….it is time to believe that psychotherapies or other psychological interventions made  for people with hemophilia with or without inhibitors , with or without other co-morbidities, can give useful information for all.

With the results of this research, our colleagues could be  motivated  to undertake new projects and make the best choice in their field.

I know by experience that lots of my colleagues as myself have done useful and remarkable interventions during the years. And now, we can also use that experience to take part in creating clinical trials. I BELIEVE we CAN.

More that applying questionnaires…we can intervene with our skills as “servers of the psyche”, servers that can help heal the soul…because the soul’s can ge sick and suffers as well as the body.
