Couldn't Keep It to Myself: Testimonies from Our Imprisoned Sisters

by Wally Lamb

Any book that can give voice to the voiceless should be celebrated. No one feels this more strongly than Wally Lamb, editor of Couldn't Keep It to Myself, a collection of stories by 11 women imprisoned in the York Correctional Institution in Connecticut. Teacher and novelist Lamb was invited to head a writing workshop at York Correctional Institution in 1999. His somewhat reluctant acceptance soon turned into steadfast advocacy once the women in his charge began to tell their stories. Lamb maintains that there are things we need to know about prison and prisoners: "There are misconceptions to be abandoned, biases to be dropped." However, as heartfelt as his appeal is, nothing speaks more convincingly in this book than the stories themselves. Those collected here are disturbing and horrific. They reveal, often in graphic detail, the worst kind of abuse: incest, drug addiction, spousal violence, parental neglect, or incompetence. They're also testimony to what social workers and health care professionals have confirmed for years--that those who populate our prisons are often victims first themselves. Thus, the telling of these stories serves as a form of therapy. They are also sad accounts of the brutalities many suffer, yet few discuss...

Counseling Military Families

by Lynn K. Hall

According to the United States Department of Defense, by the end of 1993 there were 2,036,646 reservists and family members and 3,343,235 active duty and family members for a total of 5,379,781 people affected by the military. Since then, because of the conflict in Iraq, the numbers have dramatically increased. While we have always had military families in our midst, not since the Vietnam War have their struggles been so vivid, particularly with alarming rates of increase of both suicide and divorce among military personnel. The face of the military has changed; for the first time a volunteer army is serving in a major combat zone, the level of reservists serving is unprecedented, the percentage of women soldiers in virtually all positions is unprecedented and most of the soldiers have left spouses and/or families behind. The objectives of Counseling Military Families are to help the practicing counselor understand how the military works, what issues are constants for the military family, and what stressors are faced by the military member and the family. The book will begin with an overview of military life, including demographic information and examples of military family issues, before delving into specific chapters focused on the unique circumstances of reservists, career service personnel, spouses, and children. The final section of the book will present treatment models and targeted interventions tailored for use with military families. This book will help counselors tailor their interventions to work well with families who are in transition, who may have an ingrained resistance to asking for help and who will, more than likely, be available for counseling for a relatively short period of time.

Counseling the Emotionally Disturbed

by C. H. Patterson

Mental disturbance is frighteningly prevalent in our contemporary society. The number of those mentally disturbed who are or have been hospitalized should seriously concern every citizen in our country-especially all those working in such fields as medicine, education, psychology, social work, the courts, and the church. The devastating disease of mental disturbance strikes all ages and all levels of ability. To the untutored observer this malady seems to come without warning, although to the skilled in this field there are clearly identifiable danger signs that appear long before the popularly termed "nervous breakdown." Fortunately, there is widespread and telling evidence of the recognition of this situation in many directions. The necessity for effective counseling services for both young and old as a possible preventative against disastrous crack-ups is being considered and provided for by a wide array of institutions. Just as is true of any disease, mental disturbance demands treatment by personnel who are well grounded indeed in the nature and treatment of diseases of the mind. However, also just as is true of any disease, the highly skilled specialist must be bulwarked by many specialists in related activities. For example, in the same fashion as teachers, nurses, and medical technicians have been taught to become alerted to the possible presence of such common ailments as measles, whooping cough, scarlet fever, and so forth, it seems clear that a similarly wide range of workers must learn to recognize the presence or prospect of mental disturbance. And just as nurses and medical technicians do the bidding of and gather data for the surgeon, so must the specialist direct and be aided by the effort of others. To the knowledge of the writer, this volume is a pioneer effort. He is not familiar with any work outside the literature especially prepared for psychiatric training that deals with the counseling of the mentally disturbed. This treatise is a combination of theory, research, and common sense, which the author has gleaned from a wide sampling of the work of others and to which he, himself, has made no small contribution.
