PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Emotional Orphans: Healing Our Throwaway Children "Emotional Orphans tells the sad and moving stories of a number of lost children, young ones who had suffered abuse and abandonment and who had learned in consequence that trust in others was their most bitter enemy. In this wonderful book, Cate Shepherd describes her clinical work and gives us moving accounts of her inspiring successes and her heartbreaking failures. She also opens up her own trauma history, and allows us to see how the wounds carried by the healer play an indispensable role in the process of healing itself. This book should be read by every student and clinician who seeks to open the darkness of mistrust to the power of human understanding and connection."- George Atwood, Ph.D., author, The Abyss of Madness "Like the fabled animal-whisperer, Dr. Shepherd is able to maintain a therapeutic distance, not too close and not too far away, and wait patiently. Sometimes she waits for a very long time. The results are worth it as she shows how these troubled teenagers can eventually learn to feel safe and begin to trust. Her work is not without dangers, and she honestly describes how at times she gets hurt by the people she is trying to help. In the twenty years I have known Cate Shepherd, as a student and as a colleague, she has become one of my most valued teachers. This book is a must read for all parents, therapists and court officials who want to help this very troubled population of young people.- Sanford Shapiro, M.D., author, Talking With Patients"a surprisingly captivating reading experience...I am a psychologist who works clinically with adults, not children. Yet, I could not put this book down. I was fascinated and moved by her stories, and I became inspired to think differently about some of the work that I do with adults. And I could not put it down because it is so well-written. It is creative, compelling, written like a novel. It covers themes related to the anguish of being a marginalized child. An undertone of the book is a plea for a more just and sensitive world for "our" children (which means a more just and sensitive world for us all. Whether you are a clinician, educator, activist, parent or concerned citizen this book will move you, inspire, teach you. It did all those things for me.- Lynne Jacobs, Ph.D., psychoanalyst and author"Dr. Cate Shepherd's Emotional Orphans powerfully expands our understanding of the newer paradigm of psychoanalysis with heart, accessibility, and in plain and understandable language. In this day and age of opinion and verbosity, this is no easy feat! I found Shepherd's simple yet elegant writing style reassuring in that as author or clinician she appears to have nothing to prove. Rather, she humbly shares her compelling memoir, and the rich clinical information it possesses, with a self-reflective wry sense of humor that quite often led me to tears. I believe this book to be an invaluable tool for all workers in the adolescent/juvenile system, or for any practitioner who might want to broaden their learning on how one can reach young challenging patients, or any patient for that matter, with "true love" and empathy vs. "tough love" and confrontation. This book was a fabulous read!"- Daniel Bradley Jones, Psy.D., psychoanalyst and autho

- Daniel Bradley Jones, Psy.D., psychoanalyst and author, -, * An illustrated adventure story for tweens from the award-winning author of Emotional Orphans! * * * A fun book for kids that entertains and teaches at the same time. * * * * FULL-COLOR ILLUSTRATIONS on Dragon Camp Blog: www.dragoncamp.info * * * and on INSTAGRAM: dragoncampbook * * * * * "Deceptively simple and beautifully illustrated, Dragon Camp powerfully illustrates the magic of healing relationships. This engaging story follows a group of irascible dragons - the kind most people I've up on as hopelessly irredeemable - and their novice camp counselor, Max, through their adventures at Dragon Camp. As each dragon faces his or her personal challenges under the caring and perceptive eyes of the camp's hosts, suspicion and hostility give way to self-compassion and hope. Wisdom, glittering like gemstones strewn throughout the story, draws on deep understandings derived from both sides of the healing relationship. On the way to finding validation and acceptance of their deep-seated feelings of anger, grief, and alienated loneliness, the youthful dragons learn that 'mistakes are how we learn' and that anything is possible when we truly believe in ourselves. Their transformation from delinquents to dragons deserving of second chances and fresh starts builds on a deep belief in their potential conveyed by teachers who, importantly, 'see through the fault to the need.' Dragon Camp carries a message of hope to young people in deep need of help, and to those who would seek to help them." - Nancy Vanderheide, Ph.D., Psychoanalyst and Author * * * * "Cate Shepherd, as usual, writes with great heart. Her novel, Dragon Camp about a group of delinquent and semi-delinquent juvenile dragons at summer camp made me feel as if I were being warmly embraced even while its campers got into all sorts of trouble, whether because they were pitching food fights, throwing punches, lighting fires, or going AWOL. Cate offers the readers, along with the dragons, methods to master their "lizard brains" through such devices as Dragonometers and STAR (you'll have to read the novel to find out what this means!). She also offers up humor, lots of it, some of it subtle, some not so much. For example, consider the names of the adult humans at the summer camp: Mrs. Cleerheart, Dr. Sear, and Mr. Yuni. And the artwork by Doug Jennings burns and sizzles with originality. So, make yourself some Drowsy Dragon tea, sit down and take a stroll through Dragon Camp." - Suad Campbell, Author * * "It's Summer! Mischief and mayhem are in the air! Teen-age delinquent dragons have been shipped off to Dragon Camp to be shaped up. There's Raif, who has one last chance before he's sent to the dungeon; Molly, who's shy and doesn't want to get out of bed, Phil, who keeps disappearing, and Nate and Sammy who are always going after each other. Will Max, the young counselor ever get his anger under control and be able to help these youngsters? Perhaps with the help of wise Mr. Yuni and kind Mrs. Cleerheart something magical will happen!" -Terri Drake, Psy.D., Psychoanalyst and Author * "Imagine you're a troubled, young dragon who finds that life is always rubbing your scales the wrong way. Perhaps you're a small, pink dragon who's shy, or a big, red dragon who finds it difficult to control your fire-breathing anger. Where might you turn for help? The answer, of course, is Dragon Camp. Cate Shepherd's imaginative story is chock-full of relatable teen-aged dragons facing personal dilemmas. With help from the human and dragon camp counselors, the young dragons learn to overcome their problems and discover keys to growth and hope. Following the adventures of this of amusing and mischievous dragons, the reader may just pick up a hint on how to improve his or her own life. Come join the fun at Dragon Camp. There be dragons here. What more could you want?" P.S. Doug Jennings' illustrations are wonderful -John Edward Mullen, award-winning author
