Trauma, Abandonment and Privilege discusses how ex-boarders can be amongst the most challenging clients for therapists; even experienced therapists may unwittingly struggle to skilfully address the needs of this client group. It looks at the effect on adults of being sent away to board in childhood and the problems associated with boarding, which have only recently been acknowledged by mainstream mental health professionals. This practice-based book is illustrated by case studies, diagrams and exercises and is divided into three parts: ‘Recognition; Acceptance; Change’. It aims to help readers understand the emotional processes of boarding and the psychological aspects of survival, outlining the steps toward recovery and the repercussions of survival. The book also explores how ex-boarders frequently struggle with intimate relationships with spouses and partners and offers interventions and strategies for those working with ex-boarder clients. Trauma, Abandonment and Privilege will be of interest to therapists, counsellors and mental health workers across the UK. It will also be relevant to those who are well acquainted with boarding schools based on the UK model, for example in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and India.

For much of its history, psychoanalysis has been strangely silent about sudden ruptures in the analytic relationship and their immediate and far-reaching effects for those involved. Such issues of betrayal and abandonment – the death of an analyst, a patient’s suicide, an ethical violation – disrupt the stability and cohesion of the analytic framework and leave indelible marks on both individuals and institutions alike. In Traumatic Ruptures an international range of contributors present first-person, highly personal and sometimes painful accounts of their experiences and the occasionally difficult yet redeeming lessons they have taken from them. Presented in four parts, the book explores multiple meanings and consequences of the break in the analytic relationship. Part One, Ruptured Subjectivity: Lost and Found, presents accounts of clinical encounters with death. Part Two, Rupture: The Clinical Process, addresses the sudden loss of an analyst, the trauma of patient suicide and the issue of countertransference when working with patients who have suffered the unexpected loss of their first analyst. Part Three, The Long Shadow of Rupture, examines the effects of ethical violations in the short and long term. Finally, Part Four, Ruptures’ Impact on Organizations, looks at the wider impact of ethical and sexual boundary violations in the context of an organization and the effect of trauma on a psychoanalytic institute. By giving voice to issues that are usually silenced, the authors here open the door to understanding the complex nature of traumatic rupture within the analytic field. This intimate exploration of psychoanalytic treatments and communities is ideal for psychoanalysts, psychologists, clinical social workers, psychiatrists and family therapists. It is an important text for clinicians working with individuals who have experienced traumatic ruptures and for members of organisations dealing with their effects.

Discover new interventions to restore self-respect and personal life control! When men suffer traumatic brain injury (TBI), they can lose their sense of competence, confidence, and masculinity, resulting in a gender role strain. Brain Injury and Gender Role Strain offers an innovative solution to help such men regain a masculine identity. This important book tells the story of four brain-injured men who suffered because they had lost the roles, relationships, and activities that had once defined their identities as adult men. Most traumatic brain injury is suffered between the ages of 18 and 30, when men are making the developmental transition from adolescent to young adult roles. TBI interrupts that transition and often sends men back into an infantile role, where they rapidly become frustrated. Many of the behavioral and morale problems of men with TBI can be traced to their anger at being unable to participate in the adult world of work, marriage, parenting, and independence. Brain Injury and Gender Role Strain discusses how these issues affected the four men included in the study, all of whom felt isolated, victimized, abandoned, and useless when they could not be the men they had always expected to be. Dr. Gutman's innovative approach can help men regain the gender-related social roles, activities, and rites of passage that help men construct their masculine identity. Brain Injury and Gender Role Strain provides a specialized intervention program that enabled the men to: rebuild familial roles create extended-family roles turn to mentors for guidance learn the skills to form and maintain dating relationships find meaningful community work reclaim a sense of personal competency, life control, and normality Brain Injury and Gender Role Strain offers timely and important information for health care professionals and family members of individuals with long-term brain injury. This is also an inspiring book for anyone with a brain injury who is struggling to rebuild a life as a competent adult.

More than ever, the aging process is recognized as carrying a special set of emotional challenges–especially when acute or chronic medical conditions are involved. In this light, Psychodynamic Perspectives on Aging and Illness presents a fresh, contemporary application of psychodynamic theory, addressing the complex issues surrounding declining health. Informed by the spectrum of psychodynamic thought from self, relational, and classical theories, this forward looking volume offers more modern interpretations of theory, and techniques for working with a growing, complicated, but surprisingly resilient population. It illuminates how to enhance the therapeutic relationship in key areas such as addressing body- and self-image issues, approach sensitive topics, and understand the disconnect that can occur between medical patients and the often impersonal, technology-driven health care system. At the same time, the author cogently argues for pluralism in a therapeutic approach that is frequently threatened by forces both within and outside the field. Among the topics covered: Medical illness as trauma. Idealization and the culture of medicine. Normative and pathological narcissism in the ill and/or aging patient. Noncompliant and self-destructive behaviors. Transference and countertransference issues. Psychotherapy with cognitively impaired adults. Grief, loss, and hope. Expanding on what we know and candid about what we don’t, Psychodynamic Perspectives on Aging and Illness offers mental health researchers and practitioners an insightful framework for improving the lives of older patients.

Seine Großeltern versuchten, mit Fleiß und Mobilität der Armut zu entkommen und sich in der Mitte der Gesellschaft zu etablieren. Doch letztlich war alles vergeblich. J. D. Vance erzählt die Geschichte seiner Familie — eine Geschichte vom Scheitern und von der Resignation einer ganzen Bevölkerungsschicht. Armut und Chaos, Hilflosigkeit und Gewalt, Drogen und Alkohol: Genau in diesem Teufelskreis befinden sich viele weiße Arbeiterfamilien in den USA — entfremdet von der politischen Führung, abgehängt vom Rest der Gesellschaft, anfällig für populistische Parolen. Früher konnten sich die »Hillbillys«, die weißen Fabrikarbeiter, erhoffen, sich zu Wohlstand zu schuften. Doch spätestens gegen Ende des 20sten Jahrhunderts zog der Niedergang der alten Industrien ihre Familien in eine Abwärtsspirale, in der sie bis heute stecken. Vance gelingt es wie keinem anderen, diese ausweglose Situation und die Krise einer ganzen Gesellschaft eindrücklich zu schildern. Sein Buch bewegte Millionen von Lesern in den USA und erklärt nicht zuletzt den Wahltriumph eines Donald Trump.

Murakamis Rekordbestseller – ein Epos um Freundschaft, Einsamkeit und Schuld Der junge Tsukuru Tazaki ist Teil einer Clique von fünf Freunden, deren Mitglieder alle eine Farbe im Namen tragen. Nur Tsukuru fällt aus dem Rahmen und empfindet sich – auch im übertragenen Sinne – als farblos, denn anders als seine Freunde hat er keine besonderen Eigenheiten oder Vorlieben, ausgenommen vielleicht ein vages Interesse für Bahnhöfe. Als er nach der Oberschule die gemeinsame Heimatstadt Nagoya verlässt, um in Tokio zu studieren, tut dies der Freundschaft keinen Abbruch. Zumindest nicht bis zu jenem Sommertag, an dem Tsukuru voller Vorfreude auf die Ferien nach Nagoya zurückkehrt – und herausfindet, dass seine Freunde ihn plötzlich und unerklärlicherweise schneiden. Erfolglos versucht er wieder und wieder, sie zu erreichen, bis er schließlich einen Anruf erhält: Tsukuru solle sich in Zukunft von ihnen fernhalten, lautet die Botschaft, er wisse schon, warum. Verzweifelt kehrt Tsukuru nach Tokio zurück, wo er ein halbes Jahr am Rande des Selbstmords verbringt. Viele Jahre später offenbart sich der inzwischen 36-jährige Tsukuru seiner neuen Freundin Sara, die nicht glauben kann, dass er nie versucht hat, der Geschichte auf den Grund zu gehen. Von ihr ermutigt, macht Tsukuru sich auf, um sich den Dämonen seiner Vergangenheit zu stellen.

"Ergreifend, zutiefst menschlich und großartig erzählt." (Sir Richard Evans) Ein historisches Werk, das seinesgleichen sucht: Nikolaus Wachsmanns lang erwartete, monumentale Geschichte der Konzentrationslager von den improvisierten Anfängen 1933 bis zu ihrer Auflösung 1945. Diese erste umfassende Darstellung vereint auf eindrückliche Weise sowohl die Perspektive der Täter als auch jene der Opfer, sie zeigt die monströse Dynamik der Vernichtungspolitik und verleiht zugleich den Gefangenen und Gequälten eine Stimme. Ein gewaltiges Buch – erschütternd und erhellend zugleich. Für seine Geschichte der Konzentrationslager hat Nikolaus Wachsmann eine enorme Menge an Quellen und Forschungsliteratur ausgewertet, Tagebücher und Briefe der Lagerinsassen, Prozessunterlagen, SS- und Polizeiakten, ein Teil davon erstmals hier verwendet. Auf diese Weise konnte er die Praktiken der Täter, die Einstellungen der Gesellschaft und die Welt der Opfer in einem großen epischen Rahmen zusammenführen, konnte das Leben und Sterben im Lager, die individuellen Schicksale schildern, aber auch die politischen, ökonomischen und militärischen Umstände, die Hintergründe der NS-Vernichtungspolitik. Beides, die Nahaufnahme wie die historische Entwicklung, vereint Wachsmann zu einer eindringlichen Erzählung – ein historisches Werk, das, wie Ian Kershaw schreibt »kaum jemals übertroffen werden wird«.

„Achtundzwanzig Prozent der männlichen Bevölkerung der USA könnten der Vater sein.“ Das sagte Steve Jobs dem Time Magazine über seine Tochter Lisa. Für die Öffentlichkeit war er da schon ein Halbgott. Was bedeutet es, einen Vater zu haben, der lange nichts von einem wissen wollte? Behutsam nähert Lisa Brennan-Job sich dieser für sie brennenden Frage und versucht mit ihren Kindheitserinnerungen Antworten zu finden. Aber, anders als von vielen erhofft, ist es keine gehässige Abrechnung mit dem Apple-Guru geworden, sondern ein kluges und berührendes Buch über die Liebe zwischen Eltern und Kindern - allen Widrigkeiten zum Trotz. Lisa war das Ergebnis einer schon im Ansatz gescheiterten Liebe. Als die Studentin Chrisann Brennan schwanger wurde, hatte Steve Jobs hatte gerade das College geschmissen und schraubte in der berühmten Garage im Silicon Valley komische Kästen zusammen. Chrisann wollte Künstlerin werden und verließ den "Nerd" Steve. Diese Kränkung sollte er ihr - und auch Lisa - lange nicht verzeihen. Der Apple-Gründer bestritt die Vaterschaft, nannte aber gleichzeitig wohl einen seiner Computer nach ihr. Und das kleine Mädchen erlebte eine Kindheit der Extreme: Da war einerseits ihre Hippie-Mutter, die nicht einmal genug Geld für ein Sofa hatte, und andrerseits eben einer der reichsten und berühmtesten Männer der Welt … Herzzerreißend und komisch – eine Kindheit, die man so nie erfinden könnte. "Ein zauberhaftes, berührend intimes Porträt, eine Geschichte aus der Sicht einer Tochter, deren Vater mit seinen eigenen Wurzeln zu kämpfen hatte - und der doch beinahe zu dem Vater wurde, den sie sich gewünscht hätte." ―Susan Cheever
