Some psycho-analytic tensions appear in a simpler, less disguised form if we use as a model the impact of the thought of Jesus on the Jewish group and on later religious institutions. The stress on miracles of healing represented an urge to ‘medicalize’ the institution intended to serve the teaching of Jesus. Healing retains its dominance in Christian Science, Lourdes, faith-healing. An example in the early Christian group of a problem of institutionalizing is the query put to Jesus by the disciples who wanted to have a ruling on recognition of those who cast out devils in Jesus’ name. His attitude appears to have been against rigid qualification for membership of the group - ‘those that are not against me are for me\ Although this reply cannot now be interpreted with sureness and may have been referable to the favourable (for Christianity) effect of turpitude in the opponents of Christianity, it shows the recurrent configuration of the problem of selection (lay versus professional, or outgroup versus ingroup). These conjectures illustrate the configuration to which I want to draw attention.See All Chapters

The Church says: The body is a sin.
Science says: The body is a machine.
Advertising says: The body is a business.
The body says: I am a fiesta.

As discussed in previous work (Watson 2005), Wilber’s Integral Model (Wilber 1998, 2001a, 2001b) provides a Caring Science/Caritas context for grasping the totality of a broader disciplinary focus for providing views of the body and thus basic nursing care. In Wilber’s Four-Quadrant Integral Model we move toward greater depth to comprehend multiple ways of Knowing and Being and Becoming—an approach that integrates and includes subtle and dense matter, body, soul, and Spirit (Wilber 1998:102). This model seeks to point toward integration of the immanent with the transcendent-transpersonal, the sacred with the ordinary (Watson 2005).
Table 16.1 Wilber’s Four-Quadrant Model (from Wilber 1998)
The four-quadrant model offers a framework for most basic views of subjective/objective, individual/collective, insider/outsider templates for understanding core components of a given process, phenomenon, or practice at a given point in time.See All Chapters

As you make your way through the 16 signs of trauma exposure response, take note of how you feel. For some people I work with, the experience of analyzing their trauma exposure response can be quite unsettling. Recently, at a statewide cervical cancer conference where we were reviewing trauma exposure response, a participant leaned over to her colleague and said, “I swear she must have talked to my partner.” Her colleague responded, “Well, then she gets around, because she most certainly has talked to mine as well!” Some feel as if there’s an intervention being planned and they alone are at the center of it. Some worry that there is something wrong with them. Still others become immediately overwhelmed. I remind them, and I would like to remind my readers, that whether you identify with many of the warning signs, a few, or none at all, you are more than okay. It is perfectly normal to have a response to trauma exposure. This means you still have the capacity to connect your internal world with the external reality, and this, as you know, is a great blessing. As hard as it is to feel our full range of feelings, still more damaging are our attempts to not feel. Even if we don’t believe we have any trauma exposure response, what compassion and insight can we bring to those who do? As we move ahead, we can honor ourselves for having the courage to look honestly at our own behavior. Already, we have taken the first step toward more effective trauma stewardship.See All Chapters

RALPH will now be briefly presented as one example of a schizophrenic child manifesting Regressive Secondary Autism (R.S.A.).
Ralph was a second child born to a couple in Australia. He was an extremely good baby (‘we didn’t know we had him’), and was bottle fed. When he was ten months old the mother went to take a University course in Psychology in another town in Australia and the baby was left with the maternal grandparents. When the mother returned he was eighteen months old. She found a child who had had eczema (which had cleared up) and who was inclined to be ‘chesty’. He was also ‘whiney’ and miserable.
When Ralph was three years old the family moved to another part of Australia and he was sent to kindergarten. Here, he functioned like a mentally defective child, and mother became very worried, for it confirmed her worst fears, having been absolutely convinced when she was pregnant that her child would be subnormal.
When Ralph was six years old the family moved to England and the mother decided to try to find help for Ralph who was beginning to live more and more in a world of bizarre fantasy.See All Chapters
Velcro® (Velcro® USA Inc., Manchester, NH, USA) wrappers are very useful for restraint since the wings are effectively immobilized in a comfortable position after the bird is slid into the wrapper and the Velcro® is secured. There are three types of wrappers:
Open-ended body wrappers: these are useful for eye examinations and for force-feeding, or when carrying and weighing larger birds such as vultures or eagles.
• Closed-ended body wrappers: these do not allow for good air flow so should only be used for very short periods (i.e. 10–15 s) but are very useful when weighing birds. The bird is slid into the wrapper, the Velcro® is secured and the bird is placed on its back on the scale (Fig. D.1).
• Wing wrappers: these are great as a replacement for the traditional Vetrap figure-8 bandage and are especially useful when there are
feathers in blood, since these wraps allow the feathers to continue to grow and slide underneath. They are reusable, can be applied and removed quickly, and save on the use of bandage material. They can also be placed over a normal figure-8 bandage to help protect it from the bird picking at it. Duct tape should be placed over the Velcro® to prevent the bird from removing the wrapper. See Figs 4.13, 4.14 and 8.3.See All Chapters
