Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: I did not cry. The moment came when Heather died; I did not shed a tear. I felt numb, like I was having an out of body experience, and I was watching myself go through the motions. There were things to do; people to call, it was not the time to begin to fall apart. I had just joined an elite club of grieving mothers. This was the club no one talked about or wanted to become a member of. From that moment on my life was getting a makeover that I didn’t ask for let alone consent to allowing it to happen. It was beyond my control; I was not given a choice. This was and is my life now. I am a grieving mother for the rest of my life.
Download or read book Male Poets and the Agon of the Mother written by Hannah Baker Saltmarsh and published by Univ of South Carolina Press. This book was released on 2019-04-23 with total page 244 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the late 1950s the notion of a "mother poem" emerged during a confessional literary movement that freed poets to use personal, psychosexual material about intimate topics such as parents, childhood, failed marriages, children, infidelity, and mental illness. In Male Poets and the Agon of the Mother, Hannah Baker Saltmarsh argues that male poets have contributed to what we think of as the literature of motherhood—that confessional and postconfessional modes have been formative in the way male poets have grappled with the stories of their mothers and how those stories reflect on the writers and their artistic identities. Through careful readings of formative elegies and homages written by male poets of this time, Saltmarsh explores how they engaged with femininity and feminine voices in the 1950s and 60s and sheds light on the inheritance of confessional motifs of gender and language as demonstrated by postconfessional writers responding to the rich subject matter of motherhood within the contexts of history, myth, and literature. A foreword is provided by Jo Gill, professor of twentieth-century and American literature in the Department of English and associate dean for education at the University of Exeter.
Download or read book What Do Mothers Want written by Sheila F. Brown and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2013-05-13 with total page 298 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What do mothers want and need from their parenting partners, their extended families, their friends, colleagues, and communities? And what can mental health professionals do to help them meet their daunting responsibilities in the contemporary world? The talented contributors to What Do Mothers Want? address these questions from perspectives that encompass differences in marital status, parental status, gender, and sexual orientation. Traversing the biological, psychological, cultural, and economic dimensions of mothering, they provide a compelling brief on the perplexing choices confronting mothers in the contemporary world. Of course, mothers most basically want their children to be safe and healthy. But to this end they want and need many things: caring partners, intergenerational and community support, a responsive workplace, public services, and opportunities to share their experiences with other mothers. And they want their feelings and actions as mothers to be understood and accepted by those around them and by society at large. The role of psychotherapy in reaching these latter goals is taken up by many of the contributors. They reflect on the special psychological challenges of pregnancy, birth, and the arrival of a newborn into a couple’s (whether hetero- or homosexual) life, and they address new venues of therapeutic assistance, such as brief low-cost therapy for at-risk mothers and infants and group interventions to help couples grow into the new role of parental couples.

Download or read book The Judicial Process written by Christopher P. Banks and published by CQ Press. This book was released on 2015-02-19 with total page 400 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Judicial Process: Law, Courts, and Judicial Politics is an all-new, concise yet comprehensive core text that introduces students to the nature and significance of the judicial process in the United States and across the globe. It is social scientific in its approach, situating the role of the courts and their impact on public policy within a strong foundation in legal theory, or political jurisprudence, as well as legal scholarship. Authors Christopher P. Banks and David M. O’Brien do not shy away from the politics of the judicial process, and offer unique insight into cutting-edge and highly relevant issues. In its distinctive boxes, “Contemporary Controversies over Courts” and “In Comparative Perspective,” the text examines topics such as the dispute pyramid, the law and morality of same-sex marriages, the “hardball politics” of judicial selection, plea bargaining trends, the right to counsel and “pay as you go” justice, judicial decisions limiting the availability of class actions, constitutional courts in Europe, the judicial role in creating major social change, and the role lawyers, juries and alternative dispute resolution techniques play in the U.S. and throughout the world. Photos, cartoons, charts, and graphs are used throughout the text to facilitate student learning and highlight key aspects of the judicial process.

Download or read book Chasing Mother A Memoir written by Monique Parrish and published by Lulu Press, Inc. This book was released on 2017-10-22 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: It is an upside-down childhood. Monique’s mother, "Maria," is a beautiful, magnetic, dizzyingly smart woman. And she's an unsolvable Rubik’s Cube who believes her life is a never-ending one-act play, with just one character. Vacillating between her many roles—doting mother, long-suffering saint, victim of everyone (especially her unbalanced psychiatrist ex-husband)—she is willing to act for any audience, including her six children. In this vibrant memoir, Monique Parrish chronicles Maria’s profound neglect, indifference, and manipulation—and her own decades-long chase to win her mother’s love. Once Monique makes the difficult decision to separate herself from her mother, she realizes that while she will never matter to her mother, she matters to herself. In finally making this break, she also comes to own and embrace the scars of her childhood, discovering in the process that they represent her strength, survival, and courage.
