Some Handy Links
Greetings all, just a quick post to provide some useful information. 🙂 I am working on a post to talk about how I am actually doing but its slow going. Promise I’ll get there eventually. But in the meantime, I have a couple of useful things to share.
The first was an article for which a member on the psychcafe forum posted a link. The article is Ten Traps for Therapists in the Treatment of Survivors by James A. Chu, M.D. It’s an excellent discussion of how to handle treatment of trauma survivors written for therapists. I found it to be painful as I found so much of myself reflected in it, (and found myself thinking “OH dear, what HAVE I put BN through!?” :)) but reassuring as I find myself in a bit of a bad transference patch and this provided some much-needed perspective on BN’s behavior towards me. I suspect a lot of my readers will also find it useful. It was relatively jargon free and not hard to follow. As these things go, at least. 🙂
The second is that a Kindle edition of a truly excellent book on boundaries is on sale at Amazon right now for $2.99. The book is Boundaries: When To Say Yes, How to Say No by Henry Cloud and John Townsend. I first read it years ago and have returned to it periodically as I think it is a very clear explanation of boundaries for the layman (especially if like me, at one time you had NO understanding of what they looked like and how they work). I have recommended this book before on my blog. It is written from a Christian world view but both authors are experienced clinicians and in my experience you do not need to share their worldview to benefit from this book. If you do not have a Kindle, do not despair!! Amazon provides apps on every imaginable platform (scroll to bottom of page) which allow you to read Kindle books. It’s a really great price and worth your time if you are interested in the topic.
That’s all for now, but I’ll be back soon. Take care all. 🙂
