I see it every day in my psychotherapy office; and never more clearly than in the case of Childhood Emotional Neglect (CEN).
In CEN, the child is given a subliminal message, often inadvertently, that his/her emotions are irrelevant.
When Zach walks into a meeting at work or when he walks down the hall of his daughter’s school, he knows, deep down, that he walks alone.A study team from the University of California, Davis, added that in lab tests on rats and mice, MTBE was also carcinogenic, raising the possibility of human risk. In 1997 the legislature authorized a ban on MTBE if further investigations confirmed the health risks.In March 1999, after more research and lengthy public hearings, Governor Gray Davis issued an executive order to begin the phaseout. The oxygenating additive is used in one-fourth of the US gasoline supply, especially in pollution-prone big cities, so New York, New Jersey and other places were also discovering MTBE’s unintended consequences for clean water.Let’s take a look at what is actually happening in this seemingly everyday incident.Actually, Zach is being invalidated in multiple ways and on multiple levels.Up to this point, the story sounded like an alarming but fairly conventional environmental problem.
