Chapter 4 I Kept on Pumping Lead

I Kept on Pumping Lead


ong­ley said that he decided that the most practical way to get to Utah was by joining one of the many cattle drives headed north through the Indian Territory and terminating at the railhead at

Abilene, Kansas. According to him, he rode north to near Gainesville, in Cooke County not far from the Red River, and ran upon a large herd. The boss of the herd, a man named Rector, who Long­ley said came from Bee County in southwest Texas, hired Long­ley to go along on the drive, offering him pay of a dollar a day. Rector also furnished

Long­ley with an extra horse so that the horse Long­ley was riding could be turned out with the other extra horses on the drive in order to rest and gain a few pounds. Long­ley said that he picked out a horse and joined the trail drive as it headed into the Indian Territory.

Fuller quoted a letter from Long­ley that described his days with the trail drive as tedious, “following a big herd of cattle, seeing that none drop out by the wayside or are stolen and in the days of which

6 Cultivating a Positive Message With Parents and the Community

William D. Parker Solution Tree Press ePub


Cultivating a Positive Message With Parents and the Community

I’m a great believer that any tool that enhances communication has profound effects in terms of how people can learn from each other, and how they can achieve the kind of freedoms that they’re interested in.

—Bill Gates

I have a secret to share with you. Actually, you probably already know it: at night, when students talk to their parents about their day, they talk about their teachers. And they talk about their principal as well. Sometimes they share the funny, engaging, or inspiring moments from their school day. At other times, they share their embarrassing or upsetting moments that adults may have mismanaged—or even caused. Parents and the community learn about your school, in part, from the experiences students share. Indeed, your school is more than just a place of learning; it is an experience. Given this, you might say that educators and school leaders are involved in public relations every day that they work in school.

“Sense” by Sandy Bonny follows Alwynne, an archaeologist alone on a geographical survey in the Alberta Badlands. Though she enjoys her days exploring, photographing, and sifting the area for artefacts, Alwynne soon begins to suspect that anything found will be gained at a cost, as something unsettling lurks in the night.

Rossetti, Christina Carcanet Press Ltd. ePub

New Year met me somewhat sad:

     Old year leaves me tired,

Stripped of favourite things I had,

     Baulked of much desired:

Yet farther on my road to-day,

God willing, farther on my way.

New Year coming on apace,

     What have you to give me?

Bring you scathe or bring you grace,

Face me with an honest face:

     You shall not deceive me:

Be it good or ill, be it what you will,

It needs shall help me on my road,

My rugged way to heaven, please God.

Watch with me, men, women, and children dear,

You whom I love, for whom I hope and fear,

Watch with me this last vigil of the year.

Some hug their business, some their pleasure scheme;

Some seize the vacant hour to sleep or dream;

Heart locked in heart some kneel and watch apart.

Watch with me, blessed spirits, who delight

All through the holy night to walk in white,

Or take your ease after the long-drawn fight.

10. Counterparts in a Couple

Michael Eigen Karnac Books ePub

Ben was a therapist who loved psychological truth. He wrapped truths around himself like armor and used them as weapons to bludgeon others. I have written about Ben in Coming through the Whirlwind (1992b) and "The Immoral Conscience" (1991), and use bits of recent material for this chapter (see also Chapter 8). Our work continues well into its second decade.

Ben’s upbringing was chronically traumatic. His mother idolized him and flew into wild rages. She was alternately spoiling and stormy. Ben’s father knotted him with threats of violence and displays of self-pity and sentimental emotionality. Both parents were damaged people who poured themselves into unrewarding work and scarred their children with intensely demanding, crazy love. Ben would never recover from years of trauma, no matter how much analysis he had.

Analysis helped Ben make and maintain a marriage filled with real possibilities and enabled him to become a father. Having his own family enabled Ben to reach levels of living previously closed to him, but his gains were not without cost. Ben’s gains in personal living were always threatened by his narcissistic rage coupled with a misuse of truth to persecute himself and dominate loved ones. At any moment the complexities of living might misfire and trigger a fall into a warp, where life is hellish. Periodic somatic breakdowns, which were not life threatening, resulted from the strain. A congenital heart problem, which would worsen with age, loomed in the background.

4. The issue of respect in a medical context

Margaret Cohen Karnac Books ePub

The essence of friendship lies… in the exercise of a capacity
to perceive, a willingness to respect, and a desire to
understand, the differences between persons.

Richard Wollheim, The Thread of Life, 1984

A full-term baby, “Monica”, came to the NICU because the doctors were worried by her appearance and floppiness. After extensive investigations it was found that she had a neural migration defect, that her brain had not and could not mature, and she would not live. Monica could not swallow—a nasogastric tube would not stay down—so she received nutrition through a long line. This is a soft, flexible tube that is inserted into a vein and passed to the heart to give the baby all essential nutrients for growth. Her breathing was maintained by a ventilator. The long line had been put in with great difficulty by another hospital, which was in full collaboration with the neonatal unit. Monica’s parents were very popular on the unit: their courage and care for their daughter touched the hearts of the unit staff. They listened to the doctors but also voiced their own opinions, and they had good working relations with the nurses.

Coffee Culture

Lonely Planet Lonely Planet ePub

From Trapani to Tarvisio, every day begins with coffee. A quick cup from a stove-top Moka pot might be the first, but the second (third, fourth and fifth) will inevitably be from a neighbourhood bar. Italians consider these visits a moment to pause, but rarely linger. It’s a stand-up sniff, swirl and gulp, a buon proseguimento to the barista, and on your way.

Coffee first turned up in mid-16th-century Venice, then a few years later in Trieste, care of the Viennese. While basic espresso technology made an appearance in the early 19th century, it wasn’t until 1948 that Gaggia launched the first commercial machines. These reliably delivered full-bodied espresso shots with the characteristic aromatic crema: Italy was hooked. The machines, in fact the whole espresso ritual, spoke of a hopeful modernity as Italy reimagined itself as an urban, industrial postwar nation.

Italy’s superior coffee-making technology took seed around the world, carried by postwar immigrants. Global coffee culture today may embrace latte art and new brewing technologies, but in Italy tradition holds sway. Italians still overwhelmingly favour Arabica and Robusta blends with a dense crema, high caffeine jolt and, crucially, a price point everyone can afford. Roasts remain dark and often bitter – Italians routinely sweeten coffee – but Italian baristas use far less coffee per shot and ultra smooth blends. Espresso is the overwhelming order of choice and takeaway cups uncommon. Why? Clutching a coffee on the move misses coffee’s dual purpose for Italians: contemplation and social belonging.

“… why isn’t everyone a drinker?” de Mijolla and Shentoub, Pour une Psychanalyse de L’alcoolisme, 1973, p. 33

It is a remarkable fact that there is no substantial psychoanalytic theory of addiction, especially given that Freud had some clinical experience of working with addicts.1 This fact is even more remarkable in light of the fact that one of Freud’s first attempts to cure someone was his clinical intervention with his friend and colleague, Ernst von Fleischl-Marxov. Freud had hoped that cocaine could help his friend to lose his addiction to morphine. This attempt failed and eventually von Fleischl-Marxov died from a cocaine addiction.2 Surely these clinical encounters must have aroused Freud’s interest in the problem of addiction and provoked questions regarding its metapsychology? Freud’s theory and metapsychology were always developed on the basis of his clinical work with patients and, after all, his mind was uncommonly predisposed to curiosity. There are numerous interesting and important references to addiction in his writings, ranging from his pre-analytical period to the end of his life, but it is nonetheless strange that he never wrote an article dealing exclusively with addiction. Despite the many references, it is still possible to speak of a relative silence in Freud’s work with regard to the clinical problem of addiction. He developed elaborate theories on neurosis, perversion, and psychosis, so why is there no such elaborate theory on addiction in his work? Could it be that there were deep-rooted psychological motives in Freud himself that contributed to this neglect? These questions have been taken up by various authors and will not be dealt with here.3 It is well known that Freud’s relationship to drugs was ambiguous. When Freud came across cocaine in 1884 he was immediately fascinated by it, particularly its therapeutic properties and he used it himself sporadically for about 10 years. He was not really interested in alcohol and only occasionally drank wine. He was irritated by problems of addiction in his practice and social environment. He was hopelessly addicted to smoking and nicotine. He smoked about 20 cigars a day. He needed cigars to work and lack of nicotine plunged him into bad moods. When he was diagnosed as having cancer of the mouth he was informed that his smoking habit would kill him and on several occasions he was strongly advised by his physicians to stop smoking but, despite this medical advice, he was unable to stop (Gay, 1988, pp. 426-427). From Freud’s biographer, Ernest Jones, we know that for a long time Freud refused to take analgesics against the excruciating pain produced by the cancerous growth in his mouth. He likened taking drugs to embracing death. Freud’s personal and professional ambiguities toward addiction perhaps contributed to the fact that there is no proper theoretical development in relation to addiction in his work. One can therefore not depend on a coherent theoretical foundation in Freud in order to construct a psychoanalytic theory and clinic of addiction. Nevertheless an exploration of remarks on, and references to, addiction throughout Freud’s work show that there is a lot of material to work with and on which to reflect. Chapter 1 is devoted to his papers on cocaine. These papers are so central to the development of his work and so important for an understanding of a psychoanalytic approach to addiction, that they warrant a separate investigation. The aim in Part I will be to analyse in detail all of Freud’s remarks on addiction. Chapters 2-4 on Freud all use the work of Yorke (1970), de Mijolla and Shentoub (1973) and Magoudi (1986). But I have opted to do a detailed analysis of the theoretical and clinical context in which Freud’s references to addiction occur rather than compile and review the written material, so my point of reference to the above writing is, largely, taken from where I depart from them. The choice for this approach was made for two reasons: firstly, to demonstrate the theoretical complexities and lack of uniformity involved in Freud’s thinking on what is often considered to be an uniform or relatively straightforward clinical problem, and secondly, to indicate that these clinical and theoretical complexities have been largely ignored by most post-Freudian writers.

CHAPTER SIX The clinical diary of 1932 and the new psychoanalytic clinic

Juan Tubert-Oklander Karnac Books PDF


The clinical diary of 1932 and the new psychoanalytic clinic

Introduction to Chapter Six his chapter was originally written as a presentation for the

International Congress “Clinical Sándor Ferenczi”, held in

Turin in July 2002, under the chairmanship of Franco Borgogno.

It was originally written in English and then translated into Italian, the language in which I read it, although I was only able to discuss it in English (being a polyglot is hard work indeed). In this text, I develop the argument that Sándor Ferenczi initiated a new way of recording and sharing our clinical experiences in psychoanalysis, one that strikingly differs from the style that emerged from Freud’s case histories. This new genre was characterised by its emphasis on the analytic relationship and the inclusion of the analyst’s subjective experiences. Such style has flourished, during the past few decades, in the clinical writings of psychoanalysts of a relational bent. This is in line with the idea that Ferenczi has been the pioneer of the relational turn in psychoanalysis, a proposition I expounded and developed in a previous paper (Tubert-Oklander, 1999a). I then present three clinical narratives of episodes from different psychoanalytical treatments, and use them as examples for the discussion of some of the issues generated by the contrast between traditional analysis and relational analysis, particularly the polemical subject of countertransference disclosure.

Plant diseases are the primary cause of reducing both the quality and the quantity of crop yields. Numerous synthetic products have been used to control plant infections; however, overuse of such products has favoured the development of strains of pathogens that are resistant to fungicides. Unfortunately, the more exact the impact of a synthetic product on a pathogen, the more likely it is that the pathogen will develop resistance to it. In addition, the widespread use of fungicides produces undesirable effects on non-target organisms. Concerns about nature, human well-being and other related hazards resulting from the overuse of synthetic chemicals have led to considerable interest in developing eco-friendly methods of biocontrol against plant pathogens.
