PEP-Web Tip of the Day

When you hover your mouse over a paragraph of the Standard Edition (SE) long enough, the corresponding text from Gesammelte Werke slides from the bottom of the PEP-Web window, and vice versa.

If the slide up window bothers you, you can turn it off by checking the box “Turn off Translations” in the slide-up. But if you’ve turned it off, how do you turn it back on? The option to turn off the translations only is effective for the current session (it uses a stored cookie in your browser). So the easiest way to turn it back on again is to close your browser (all open windows), and reopen it.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Power Issues and Power Struggles in Mental Illness and Everyday Life

Stuart W. Twemlow and Edythe Harvey

The paper outlines a psychoeducational group, used in an inpatient setting that has as its goal to make conscious and useful to the patient, certain power issues that influence all human relationships. This 11 session process allows the patient to explore the perspective to see if power issues and dynamics have been active in their psycho-pathology, and especially in their ability to engage in a therapeutic alliance, where they need to take a major role in the management of their problems, and not displace this expectation onto the doctor alone. The power issues involved are not, by definition, pathological, so applications to social problems are also involved. This wider application of these ideas to problems of bullying in schools, the workplace and in local governments are also explored and summarized.
