Abstract:

The prevalence of poor, ineffectual communication and dysfunctional relationships in our society is all too obvious and lies behind many of the social and emotional problems that blight the lives of young and old alike. The seeds of this malaise lie, according to Yalom, in the first group to which we are exposed, that of our family, and for many whose family has been dysfunctional the need for a corrective group experience may be acute.


So here I am—what next?

Abstract:

‘When people start writing they think they've got to write something definitive…I think that is fatal. The mood to write in is “This is quite an interesting story I've got to tell. I hope someone will be interested. Anyway it's the best I can do for the present.” If one adopts that line one gets over it and does it’. (Holmes)


My legacy

Abstract:

As I sat and pondered on Jean's article (Atlow Mill Newsletter June 2007) I thought about legacies and for me what was so fresh in my mind was the legacy of abuse in my family and how this had cycled down through the generations wrapped up in the shroud of denial. I read Jean's words about people who hang on to their parents in the hope that love will be returned to them.

Abstract:

I remember reading this poster on the wall at secondary school, and although I had some idea what it meant, now as I contemplate my journey over the last five years it has more meaning. Emotional education for me has been a process of becoming emotionally literate—a process which has irrevocably changed me towards becoming a whole, integrated person with awareness of my feelings, where they originate and how to communicate in an authentic way which builds trust and meaningful, fulfilling relationships. Ultimately the knowledge can be forgotten, but the person retains a sense of connection to self and those around.

‘Where do you go to, my lovely?’: reflections on attempts to work with a traumatised child
Author: Jean Bond
Download the PDF
Abstract:

These reflections were written after an encounter with a fourteen year old girl on a recent programme of Emotional Education held at the Atlow Mill Centre in the Derbyshire Dales. This child was taken into care after abusive treatment by her family which left her traumatised and deeply distrustful. Her carers could not get her to communicate and were on the brink of referring her to a psychiatric unit. It is an attempt to demonstrate the difficulties (both psychological and institutional) that face anyone working with severely traumatised young people.
