Therapy with adoptees in puberty
The background of these reflections is a number of therapies with a uniform content matter: the adopted child enters puberty, and the family experiences a number of serious conflicts to the surprise of those involved. These conflicts often contain the element of intense anger towards the adoptive parents, some times even violence. I have tried to convey some reflections on useful ways of understanding this chain of events, hoping that they can be useful for therapists when planning the therapeutic sessions: 1. What is special about the bonding process between adoptive parents and the adoptee? 2. What problems may be generated by these circumstances? 3. How can you work?
Eucalyptus: An Essential Oil Favorite
Eucalyptus trees are considered by many to be among the most useful natural resource from the plant kingdom. The familar paper-like bark, dark olive leaves and curious seed pods are familiar to much of the world's population. Belonging to the same botanical familiy as the highly-regarded Tea Tree, the name 'Eucalyptus' means 'well covered', describing the the unique crown of the tree's flower. The trees can be quite majestic, growing upwards of 450 feet, particularly when found in their favorite moist, rich soils and temperate climates.
