A Note from Mark Felber

Ordinary Heartbreak

And the little girl didn't want her hair cut,
But long ago learned successfully how not to say
What it is she wants,
Who, even at this minute, cannot quite grasp
her shock and grief,
Is getting her hair cut, "For convenience," her mother put it,
The long waves gone that had been evidence at night,
When loosened from their clasp,
She might secretly be a princess.

Rather than cry out, she grips her own wrist
And looks to the mother in the mirror.
But her mother is too polite or too reserved.
So the girl herself takes up indifference,
While pain follows a hidden channel to a deep place
Almost unknown to her.
Convinced as she is that her emotions are not the ones
her life depends on,
She shifts her gaze from her mother's face
Back to the haircut now,
So steadily as if this short-haired child were someone else.

Eleven seminarsMirror, Mirror on the Wall: How Your Body Image Could Be Harming You

Do you ever have thoughts like these?

  1. My life would be better if I looked better.
  2. I will never look as good as __________.
  3. My _________ is/are so ugly.
  4. I am so fat.
  5. That scale/size can't be right.
  6. I look disgusting; no one could ever love me.

If you do, you're not alone. In 1996 author and psychology professor Linda Smolek found that 80% of American women are dissatisfied with their appearance. And women aren't the only ones with poor body images; numerous recent studies indicate that men are becoming increasingly bothered as well.

  • How growing up in an addicted home causes chronic trauma
  • What the "victim mythology" is, and how it affects a person's worldview
  • The effect of unconscious parenting
  • What a symbolic relationship is and how it affects the child
  • How having an overly critical, shaming or perfectionistic parents affects the child
  • How the wounds of childhood trauma affect the adult
  • Ways that an adult repeats the patterns of their childhood trauma
  • How to develop "empowering tools" for breaking the cycle of abuse
  • How to recover from childhood trauma and stop the cycle before it affects another generation
