Resilience, Suffering and Creativity: The Work of the Refugee Therapy Centre

Description

"Resilience, Suffering, and Creativity" offers a particularly thoughtful overview of what is needed by those who have come finally to rest in some refuge. The specific issues in this kind of work are raised here - the role of words in treating trauma that comes from physical and bodily privation; the indicators by which we can pick those whose resilience can carry them through; the place of social network support (and its loss); the role of the therapeutic institution for people who have been institutionally persecuted; and so on. It is a far-reaching contribution to addressing these various issues and is, by necessity, a vehicle that gives us a feel of the refugee experience through the vignettes. The book itself does a containing job on this most disorientating of all fates. It is a job to help those with less resilience, and it is a job to help those who have to listen therapeutically to the refugee experience. - Bob Hinshelwood, Psychoanalyst, Professor in the Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies, University of Essex
