ABOVE ALL TO LISTEN TO LEARN UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL WORTH HOW DO I TOLERATE THE EMPATHIC INSIGHTS ABOUT MYSELF?

Still, Golden doesn’t like to say she is ‘battling’ the cancer; that verb gives the disease too much power. “I’ve managed cancer,” she says, “I’m not battling cancer. I’m too busy living life.” (p. A28) Slide41:  When a man is singing, And cannot lift his voice, And another comes and sings with him, Another who can lift his voice, Then the first will be able to lift his voice, too.

The severity is proportional to the intensity of the bond. Loss must be grieved. How much can a therapist take? Our trainees? Ourselves? “Failure to integrate loss is the royal road to dementia” (Semrad) Slide46:  FROM: TO: CHANGE CARE MODEL-2a CURATIVE PALLIATIVE/BEREAVEMENT CURATIVE PALLIATIVE “SANDCASTLES” by Aline Gross:  “SANDCASTLES” by Aline Gross You like to build sandcastles. I gave you my soul -- A finegrained mound Magnificent images took shape, On which to practice Lofty towers, All your arts. Solid walls, Spirals, reaching to the sky For heaven. Then the waters rose and so did you: You dusted your hands And sighed, And striding inland from the shore You left me, at high tide, To drown.
