Tip: To sort articles by Rank…

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search.    This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search.  Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

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

Robert D. Gillman, M.D.

In this chapter we will present the analysis of a 6 ½-year-old boy who was the victim of two major traumas. At 4 ½ he was seduced into mutual fellatio by a teenage cousin; at 5 ½, while playing with fire, he was seriously burned. He required several hospitalizations for skin grafts, and he remained disfigured with visible scars on his face and hands. Thus his traumata included sexual seduction, pain, hospitalization with anesthesia, surgery and other procedures, and disfigurement.

Trauma and Reconstruction in Children: General Considerations

Analytic work with a young child provides an opportunity to reconstruct how dramatic external events interact with inner fantasies and later experiences, and how this interaction influences the child's development. We can study how the child integrates the trauma in terms of the developmental phase in which it occurred, and with the immature thought processes, fantasies, and wishes of that phase.
