      Say you were a mental health professional, well respected, a leader in your field Well liked by your peers, your opinion is sought on their cases, and they often ask for your assistance with their trickier clients Now, say your boss calls you into his office and tells you that you re fired Not because you can t do your job, not because you re difficult to work with, but because it s 1980s Florida, and Dade County has just passed sweeping anti gay legislation, and it s been discovered that you an [...]

      Recently I saw the film adaptation of this book, Trapped in Silence, and it was an amazing film so I decided to read the book to see if it was as good I can gladly say that the book is even better It s much detailed and gripping, really a wonderful story of one woman who makes all the difference in the world to a forgotten kid.

      all hayden books get 4 stars from me bc they changed my life when i was in high school and made me want to be a psychologist to help kids like she did She is not meant to be a young adult writer I think her books are meant for adults, so don t think it s a kiddy book just cuz I read em in high school I don t remember much about the writing they are all written in first person but the TRUE stories about the children who she has worked with are heartbreaking and inspiring Haven t read one of her b [...]

      I have been employed in the rehabilitation field since 1983 and have held my current position with the New York State commission for the Blind since 1989 If you were to ask me the author whose writing has had the most impact on my work, I m pretty sure my answer would surprise you It wouldn t be a vocational theorist, though their publications are certainly important It wouldn t be a researcher, though I definitely value what they publish It wouldn t be a blindness expert or one of the many blin [...]

    7. The Book Girl (Andrea) says:

      I have mixed feelings about this book but will take it at its merit This is a supposed personal true story told by a therapist Does anyone but me think that it is unethical that this story was told or published Maybe I am silly I disliked the way the author expressed her view in this book She was judgemental and at times rude in her talking about Kevin She says shes helping him, but then talks about him the next moment I felt she lacked compassion, which she was supposed to provide these childre [...]

      As always, Torey Hayden s writing rips out my heart and stomps on it, leaving me feeling slightly broken and battered No one writes as beautifully as her about such starkly horrible things, and I have no idea how she manages to do what she does.Murphy s Boy is the story of one of Hayden s unloveable, unredeemable children in this case, a fifteen year old boy whose eight year silence conceals a terrifying rage Her willingness to continually put her own safety and sanity at risk in order to help c [...]

      3.5 starsI like her books, always have Guess they appeal to the teacher part of me But they always make me so sad, too that there are so many kids out there with such trauma in their lives and the system fails them.This one is about Kevin who is almost 16, elective mute, afraid of everything, hides under the tables Once again Torey works her magic.

      I wish there was a way to review Ms Hayden s books as a group It would hard to overstate the impact they had on me in my young adult years The stories themselves are mostly not for the faint of heart, and close to horrifying But they serve a golden purpose in teaching people to think outside their own minds, to understand realities other than their own, and hopefully apply a effective filter to the human problems around them Murphy s Boy tells of a young man with horrific challenges and life c [...]

      Torey deve affrontare il caso di un ragazzo di sedici anni, che sembra non parlare da quando era molto piccolo e che si sente al sicuro solo sotto un tavolo e circondato da sedie Per Torey, che ha lasciato l insegnamento, forse la sfida pi difficile, per l et del ragazzo e per il suo vissuto da incubo, picchiato dal patrigno e lasciato in istituto dalla madre che ha volontariamente deciso di rinunciare alla patria potest ha preferito un uomo al proprio figlio

    13. Demi says:

      I liked that this story was about a child that was older and spanned for a few years as she worked at a clinic and I suppose it s a bit based on how well someone is rather than not just being the end of a school year It was extremely sad and highlighted how bad the system can be sometimes An excellent story

    14. Angela says:

      This was a well written account of the author s experience with a 15 year old elective mute during her clinical psychology career in the 1970 s I feel like this story illustrates how far we have come in understanding children s psychology, but it is also a reminder that we need to do and be better advocates for children Haunting.

      It s been a while since I ve read a book and didn t want to put it down I loved it and it might have been because of my background in psychology.

      Toreys relationship with Kevin enables him to heal from extreme family trauma

    19. Evelyn Killian says:

      Another captivating book by Ms Hayden It brought tears to my eyes It still remains in my thoughts.

    20. Elisa Vangelisti says:

      Questo un gran bel romanzo Il fatto che me ne debba distaccare un dettaglio la storia di due anni e mezzo di terapia intensiva, proseguita per tentativi, con momenti di stasi e regressione profondamente sconfortanti Ma l autrice non ha mai tentennato ed ha continuato a insistere Ad esserci Perch una storia vera La storia di un bambino ha cui stata imposta un infanzia terrificante, ma che riuscito a trovare il coraggio di vivere.

    21. Margret says:

      It was good, but a little disturbing Kevin character I didn t got into him until the middle of the book Still, it was good.

    22. Allison says:

      That book was very intense but also heartwarming as not all cases Miss Hayden works with are easy to solve The book was quite a bit longer than I thought it would be, but I don t regret spending time on it.

    23. Meagan says:

      I enjoyed this the way I have enjoyed the authors other works Written so similar to fiction, sometimes I forget these are actual patients and people she has worked with.There were many instances I disagreed with the approach that Ms Hayden took in her treatment of Kevin However, I can see why she continued working with him after situations and events that would cause most people to halt any further activities She has the ability to see through her patients students pasts, as is the case of Kevin [...]

      Inspiring how someone can stick by an unloveable boy who doesn t respond to them and give him the chance that every child deserves.

      I ll admit that this book warranted a 5 star, but that s a true score and not because I m a fan of the author, since I haven t reach the level I can be a fan of many authors but my reviews will stay true it it won t deter my honesty on whether I like the book or not Fan status aside I say this because reading some reviews on this one many quoted being a fan hence I believe this book getting the ratings handed out on it.I was perturbed in the beginning by this book I was disturbed not by the desc [...]
