Example text

Jesse and I both invited Len to help us understand what was going on after the other group members left. Without hesitation he told us the story: “When I was five, a doctor told my parents that there would be a lot of things that I could not do. ” Jesse and I exchanged knowing glances and thanked Len for sharing that information with us, reassuring him that there would be no pressure to explain anything to the group the following week. But it was a decision that was unfair and confusing to the others.

One of the other women in the group knew her through various other social contacts and was clearly mesmerized by her. Mary watched Patricia carefully in the sessions, and tried to engage her in whatever capacity she could, even if it meant irritating Patricia by speaking for her, interrupting, or making constant reference to the past. Patricia’s response was often to smile at Mary, nod her head and put up her hand as if to say “enough of that”. In spite of the outward positive affect, it was clear that Mary was an irritant at times and we helped facilitate a discussion between them in which Patricia could tell Mary how she was feeling.

Len was shocked, and no sooner had Peter finished his sentence, then he apologized: “It kind of makes me feel bad. It seems like not all parents are the same. ” In fact, his honesty and ability to retract from a position that he had so vehemently defended, and all within about 15 minutes, shocked me. ” Jesse and I relished in the moment of genuine contact and did not feel the need to respond. Len had missed the session before our Christmas break, so when we commenced the group in January, it had been a month since I had last seen him.
