An Important Update from The Therapeutic Care Journal – May/June 2023
The Mulberry Bush is currently developing the TCJ, and this site, so please bear with us. We are looking forward to launching a new and improved version which will be a valuable resource for anyone working with those made vulnerable by childhood trauma. We are building on the wonderful work that has already taken place and will continue to provide a space where people can learn, share and reflect on the impact of their work, on themselves and others, as well as developing practice and sharing ideas and opinions.
In the meantime, our regular contributor, Dr Keith White, provides us with further insights, observations and perspective from his long experience at Mill Grove. We are very grateful to Keith for sharing his wisdom and experience and we invite you to respond, comment or ask questions which could feature in upcoming articles.
The first reflects on the importance of holidays, and specifically the “looking forward” to holidays that can provide “A Reason for Getting out of Bed in the Morning” (Vol IV 07 2023)
The second reflects on the importance of actively managing “Healthy Boundaries between School and Home” (Vol IV 08 2023)
If you have any comments, ideas, observations, or thoughts about present and past articles, or ideas for new content for the TCJ, please contact Sarah at [email protected]
See you all soon!
