CHAPTER SIX: Working with a couple

Slice ePub May 24, 2014
<p>There are as many patterns of marriage as there are individual people. The couple to whom I wish to refer now is one of many. They are involved, on the one hand, in longing to realize with the marriage partner their idealized image of complete oneness, while, on the other hand, feeling swamped and suffocated, and striving towards a more realistic relationship with its promise of greater fulfilment but involving some separateness, frustration, and pain.</p><p>I shall be using the same material both to illustrate this theme, and to supplement some general comments on the Family Discussion Bureau (The Tavistock Institute of Marital Studies, now called The Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships) therapy that will follow.</p><p>Any human situation, and marriage in particular, is very complex indeed. In therapeutic work, however, it is not necessary, even if it were possible, to see <i>every</i> aspect of a psychological problem and to work it all through in order to bring about change. This is the more so where the illness becomes accessible to therapy through a very intimate relationship between two people, as in marriage. You will know of many instances where one marriage partner is having treatment and the marriage relationship becomes affected, because any withdrawal of projection engenders some measure of release and, therefore, change. Nevertheless, it is clear that much of the psychological movement that results from individual treatment is, in the first instance, diverted from the marriage relationship into the transference relationship with the therapist, and is apt to reinforce an already existing tendency to maintain the status quo of the marriage.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/245314-the-half-alive-ones-clinical-papers-on-analytical-psychology-in-a-changing-world">See more</a>

PERK #54: Cancer Made Me Value Every Birthday

Slice ePub January 09, 2014
<p> <b>Perk #54</b> </p><p> <b>Cancer Made Me Value Every Birthday</b> </p><p>One thing cancer has done for me is make me really appreciate my birthdays! Never again will I complain about getting older, and these lines and wrinkles … I have earned every one.</p><p>While many women dread the big “Five-OH,” I am sure it will be one of the happiest of my life. God willing, it will make me one of the just over 50 percent of stage-3 breast cancer patients who survives to the five-year mark. But I don’t want to just stop at fifty! My greatest wish is to follow in my grandmother’s footsteps. Nan Kearney, my namesake, is ninety-two years old. She lives on her own and is completely independent. She still gardens and cooks for herself every day. She is a great storyteller and has a memory that would put most twenty-year-olds to shame.</p><p>Nan raised twelve children over the years and has held more than fifty grandchildren and great-grandchildren. While I lose track of my growing family of cousins, she can call every one of them by name. So when I was blowing out my forty-five candles just days after losing my breast, I gave up on my usual wish (in case you are wondering, that would be a red, convertible Volkswagen Beetle). Instead, I wished to live long enough to see my children raised and to someday hold my own grandchildren.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/613899-100-perks-of-having-cancer-plus-100-health-tips-for-surviving-it">See more</a>

Girl Under Bug Zapper

Slice PDF May 17, 2014
<p>Girl Under Bug Zapper</p><p>This haywire night, she’s back from church with neighbors, plain-faced Pentecostal types whose scowls cut through the windshield’s smears when her door slammed, no thank you ma’am or wave, who’d still be scowling, could they see she kowtows on rotten boards, the porch suffused with purple-blues no regal soul would praise, to maim a wayward gypsy moth.</p><p>She likes to watch them die, the stunned and stunted, slugs betrayed by falling salt, cicadas gutted, anthills razed like circus grounds after a hurricane, and while a kinder child might stray from incantations, cataclysmic winds of aerosol, or soda froth, her heart’s a mudcake shrunken in the sun.</p><p>Besides, she’s seen enough of them hooked onto eaves and storm doors, dull as leaves, and knows they’ll drop, spun from the shock of pain, or rapture, creatures slain in spirit.</p><p>Besides, she’d rather celebrate the world unhinged, its crooked scales and stakes, party-of-one who plucks these wings, confetti in her folded palms. Frail things.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/615120-circles-where-the-head-should-be">See more</a>
