Jadis, la quatrième année de primaire était le moment où les jeunes filles commençaient à avoir des difficultés à gérer leurs amitiés. Pendant de nombreuses années, j'ai travaillé dans une école pour enfants ayant des difficultés d'apprentissage. C'était toujours en quatrième année que les grandes amitiés commençaient à connaître des...

Quer acabar com as meninas malvadas? Crie meninas boazinhas

Era uma vez a quarta série, ano em que as jovens garotas começavam a ter dificuldade para navegar em amizades. Durante muitos anos trabalhei numa escola para crianças com problemas de aprendizado. Durante a quarta série as amizades começavam invariavelmente a apresentar sinais de turbulência. Xingamentos, fofocas, mágoas.

Ich habe viele Jahre lang in einer Schule für Kinder mit Lernbehinderungen gearbeitet. Und immer war es in der vierten Klasse, wenn etablierte Freundschaften auf die Probe gestellt wurden. Die Mädchen warfen sich...

Once upon a time, fourth grade was the year that young girls began to have difficulty navigating friendships. For many years, I worked in a school for kids with learning disabilities. It was always during fourth grade that previously established friendships began to hit turbulence. Names were called. Gossip was...

The Introvert in the Classroom

(9) Comments | Posted September 4, 2014 | 12:06 PM

School is designed for the extroverts of the world. OK, maybe that's not entirely fair. Many teachers design their classrooms to meet the needs of different personality types and different learning styles, but if we step back and think about the schedule of the typical school day, it's not designed...

자살은 이기적인 행동이 아니다

(4) Comments | Posted August 20, 2014 | 12:34 PM

이 글은 허핑턴포스트US 블로거이자 아동, 청소년 심리치료사 케시 헐리의 글을 번역, 편집한 것입니다.


아버지는 자살하셨다.


요즘은 이 이야기를 별로 하지 않는다. 이미 너무 오래전 일이기 때문이다. 아버지가 자살한 후, 이를 회복하는 건 매우 길고도 비통한 과정이었다. 슬픔에 잠긴 채 난 혼자라고 느꼈고, 혼돈과...

Je n'en parle plus vraiment ces jours-ci, car désormais j'ai l'impression que ça fait une éternité. La guérison a été longue et douloureuse. Par moments je me sentais seule dans ma douleur et parfois je me sentais perdue et confuse. Le problème du suicide c'est...

Ich bin Hinterbliebener eines Selbstmords.

Ich rede heute nicht mehr viel darüber, weil ich a den Punkt gekommen bin, an dem es sich anfühlt, wie wenn es vor einer Ewigkeit passiert wäre. Die Heilung war ein langer und trauriger Prozess.

Es gab Zeiten, in denen ich mich mit...

I lost my dad when I was 23 years old. I was days away from completing my first year of graduate school. It was tragic and unexpected, as tragedies generally are, and I remember drifting through the days, wondering if I would ever feel whole again.
