Sample text

I think that Adam’s rebellion against treatment was mitigated by the reassuring arrival of his very part-time “farmer” therapist, who, like him, had survived a week’s separation and was available to care for him again. His treatment gave him more than masochistic gratification; it also sometimes provided the comfort and relief associated with being fed. Living vicariously A very different theme had been developing from the beginning of treatment. It concerned Adam’s unusual relationship with his sister Susie.

Her mother confessed that she was driven to being brutal to her, and no doubt this meant that she was colluding in recreating Sylvia’s early traumatic experiences. However, at school Sylvia gave up her provocative behaviour. She stopped attacking her teacher and the other children and ceased to be constantly involved in fights. Neither Adam nor Sylvia was successfully freed from the aftermath of trauma. In order to recover more fully than they were able to do, children need to accept not only the reality of the traumatic events and the feelings which they engendered, but to become able to grieve about the damage done to them and to express appropriate anger about this.

She was a rather boyish woman who might well have found the transition to motherhood difficult, even in happy circumstances, and she freely admitted that her anxieties about Adam’s health had stopped her making the most of his infancy. She said she had vacillated between over-protecting him and trying to treat him as though his illness did not exist. As he grew older Adam had been helped to understand the cause of his anaemia but had been given less support for his feelings about it. Both parents attached importance to sensible, independent behaviour and had been much relieved when Adam began to enjoy hospital.
