Publisher:

While skin can be expressive of self-representation, skin can also be the origin of self-representations and of particular problems in self-representation. In the case described the patient is born with a congenital, severe skin disorder and the significant part that skin has played in a four-year psychoanalysis is described. The article then focuses on one function of skin, that of containment, and relates this containment function to the patient's sense of herself and to thoughts about psychoanalytic work.

Using the Assessment of Motor and Process Skills as part of the diagnostic process in an inner-city learning disability service

Authors:
MESA Sue, et al
Journal article citation:
British Journal of Occupational Therapy, 77(4), 2014, pp.170-173.
Publisher:
College of Occupational Therapists

Learning disability is characterised by significant impairment of both intellectual function and social and adaptive function, with onset before adulthood, and yet social and adaptive function is often omitted from assessment processes. This practice analysis explores the feasibility of administering the Assessment of Motor and Process Skills to assess adaptive function (alongside the assessment of intellectual function) as part of the diagnostic process for people with a learning disability. After a 2-year period, scores for the two assessments were correlated and a low level of correlation was found. Findings suggested that the Assessment of Motor and Process Skills should continue to be used as part of the diagnostic process alongside assessments of intellectual function, because assessment of intellectual function alone does not predict adaptive function and cannot be relied on for diagnosis of learning disability; doing so would ensure that practice was evidence based.

Empowering women with chronic, physical disabilities: a pedagogical/experiential group model

VAIL Svetlana, XENAKIS Nancy

Past research on group work in the hospital setting has focused on traditional psycho-educational support group models. This article describes an effective group model developed in the Initiative for Women with Disabilities, a hospital-based outpatient program for women with chronic physical illnesses or conditions in the United States. The group model integrates concepts of humanistic and self-psychology with pedagogical methods and experiential learning. A Women's Writing group and Women's Assertiveness group each with 10 sessions were designed and conducted according to this model. The group leader presented as a pedagogue and self-object that created a group experience that affirms humanistic values and fosters self-growth, socialization, and interpersonal change. The results of a self-administered survey suggest that the participants responded favourably to the format, structure and content of the groups, skills learned, and the identification of past and present issues.
