Welcome to my blog. This blog is dedicated to the many children that I have worked with along my journey in psychology. These children are the ones who can, “See beyond what they see,” or have the ability to see ghosts. For over 20 years, these children have told me their stories. Now, I am revealing their encounters with you. May be you can relate to them.
I encourage you to read these entries with an open mind, and add your own experiences in the comments. No judgment here! I am a witness to this phenomenon by way of these children, so your stories will not surprise me at all. I would appreciate hearing them.
If you think this is hard to believe, imagine how I felt as I worked with these beautiful children. At times it was scary; other times it was unbelievable, and then there came a time when I felt as if I had to start documenting their stories. Why? Because symptoms matched, although the children did not know one another. Parents had the same chronology, feelings, and stories, although they were unaware that other parents were telling me the same things due to confidentiality. Their comments were the same including, "I don't know what else to do about my kid saying that he or she sees ghosts." Most importantly, typical interventions used to assist these kids were ineffective which meant that I had to learn how to help these families.
Learning to help these kids took years. Understanding what was happening to these kids was hard. Unconventional treatment is what worked despite going against everything that I had learned in graduate school. My former graduate school advisor told me that I had to "think outside of the box" with these children. He knew of my stories. He also knew that I would always hear him fussing at me about thinking differently to assist these children toward healthy and productive lives. Today, he would be proud of me because I have finally allowed myself to step outside of my comfort zone to write this blog about these children. He would have said, "Well done."
I miss you...
