2. August Aichhorn - Remarks After His Death

Kohut, Heinz Karnac Books ePub

I am grateful to be allowed to say a few words about Aichhorn. Others are better able to evaluate his place in the history of psychoanalysis. I can speak as one of those who have known him personally as therapist and teacher, but above all as a warm, vigorously living human being.

My acquaintance with him was during a special period, 1938-1939 when all his old friends and pupils were leaving, one by one, while he remained as the only analyst in Vienna, the birthplace of psychoanalysis.

One is tempted, on occasions such as this, to yield to the wish for an idealized perfect father-image and to deny deficiencies. Yet, I believe his remaining in Vienna was partly an expression of what one might call the “unanalyzed” or, with Freud, the “unmodified infantile” in him. It is true that there were valid reasons for his staying. His older son had been in Dachau, and moves to emigrate would have endangered him; then, above all, there was the task of keeping analysis alive, undercover as it were—he called it “therapeutic education” during that period. But I know that, at times at least, he recognized that these were not his true reasons, and I heard him confess that he envied his Jewish friends who were forced to leave Vienna—envied them, I believe, because they were spared his conflict.

16 Then and Now

We were all thin.
We all had more hair.

George Cables

Today, there are many wonderful, young musicians. They’re extraordinary. It’s wonderful they’re keeping that music going. But they’re emulating these people that have already done that. Maybe it’s just because I’m getting older [that] I don’t hear it as strongly in the present generation, as wonderful as they are.

I think the generation of musicians of Dexter’s era definitely had it harder than the kids coming out of Juilliard and music schools today. There was something about the music at that time, when all those guys were still here – I don’t know what it is. My only thought is they did have it harder, having lived under segregation when they were traveling. We all got closest to the African American bands. They seemed to be the warmest, if you can generalize. I probably shouldn’t generalize because it wasn’t across the board like that.

I hear George [Cables] talk about when he was a young musician coming up and he was on the road with Joe Henderson and how hard it was. They had to pay their own accommodations, and Joe didn’t pay the guys very much. So they’d bunk two in a room and they’d barely have enough money to eat. And the drugs were so prevalent in the clubs then; it was hard to avoid it. Luckily, the young guys today aren’t into all the coke and stuff that was going around then.

Activity 44. Real World Customer Encounters

Part L: Uncomfortable Situations

44. Real World Customer Encounters

Activity Description

Time Guideline: 30 minutes

This activity takes a little upfront work and prep time, but it can be a very powerful and effective learning experience. This is a group role play activity to practice as close to the “real world” of customer encounters as possible.

If you’ve ever been around a teenager, you know what TDC is—Thinly Disguised Contempt—but we as adults, unfortunately, use it, too. And when the heat gets turned up, we tend to employ it more and more.

So, when working with customer service representatives or those in contact with customers, this activity will demonstrate how TDC is perceived by the customer and encourage discussion and suggestions as to how we can avoid it, and in its place deliver excellent service.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

1. Demonstrate the impact of TDC on customers.

2. Role play situations where TDC may surface and how to deal with it professionally.

3. Realize how critical the customer’s perception of reality is.

Silesia

Lonely Planet Lonely Planet ePub

Pop 9.5 million

Occupying the whole of southwestern Poland, Silesia (Śląsk, pronounced 'shlonsk', in Polish), is a diverse collection of attractive cities, industrial centres and mountain scenery.

Wrocław is a historical gem and well worth a visit, while inviting smaller centres such as Nysa and Jelenia Góra offer distinctive sights and activities. A natural attraction is presented by the Sudetes Mountains; stretching along the Czech border, the mountains are home to scenic beauty and idyllic resort towns, popular with hikers, bikers and spa fans alike.

The rich history of the region underpins its charm, with architecture ranging from medieval fortresses to Baroque cathedrals. Silesia also contains the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp complex set up by Nazi Germany, now a grim but moving memorial.

From tumultuous history to modern-day cities and countryside, Silesia affords plenty of opportunities for relaxation, and for immersion in the story of this once-turbulent corner of Europe.
