The impact of authoritarian regimes on families… and on the therapist

Repressive powers – authoritarian governments being the focus of this article, but it applies to any oppressive relationship – require of the part of the oppressed not only obedience but denial of the oppressive nature of their submission. There is a slippery slope from experiencing the imposed nature of the oppressive rules to adapting to them to denying both internal and external evidence of their existence. When totalitarianism appears on the political and interpersonal horizon, it is imperative to prevent that declining process by retaining the critical capacity to speak and to rebel against any oppressive injunction. It is equally important to help people – therapist included—coming out of tyranny to recover the words and the agency lost in their previous experiences.

Difficult babies, difficult parents: Toward a model based on a reciprocal fit

The assumption that healthy newborns are mainly a bundle of joy and fulfillment for parents clashes with the fact that, every once in a while, a baby is born that is experienced by the parents (and sometimes by the community of consulting professionals) as predominantly difficult and frustrating – and, perhaps, if babies could talk, vice-versa! This may generate vicious cycles evolving into problematic self-fulfilling prophecies. This paper discusses the complex problem of the reciprocal fit (and occasional misfit) between parental and babies styles.
