Over time, without even realizing it, we may become numb to histories of suffering and cruelty. In its extreme form, this is a kind of “burnout” and interferes with our work. In a mild form, it’s just a way to cope. We may tell morbid jokes. We may breathe a sigh of relief when we find out that a child we are working with has “only” been abused physically and not sexually, or that a child is a victim of “garden-variety sexual abuse” with “only” one perpetrator. We may forget that the teenager who was raped “just once” was still violated and is in crisis.
Armstrong (1995) writes that we co-opt, defuse, and manage the social/political problems we encounter “by reformulating them as mental health problems . . this language tends to paralyze our critical skills and deflect attention from compelling social problems” (p. 25). When we find out a child has been hurt, we open a case file and seek an individual or family solution: foster care, parenting classes, psychotherapy, or often simply continued monitoring by state agencies. The links between inadequate resources for families and child maltreatment seem clear and paramount to me, and yet it is easier to seek and implement individual solutions, hoping to save a tree as we watch the forest burn.
Middle names are actually patronymics, meaning that they are formed from the father’s first name with “ovna” appended. For example, a girl whose American name is Lucy, but is the daughter of Alexander Popov, would be Lucya Alexandrovna Popova. Libby, the daughter of Vladimir Putin, would be Luba Vladimirovna Putina. One thing that may be confusing about this for people less familiar with Slavic cultures is that all the boys in a family will share a middle and last name, as do all the girls. And the girls and the boys in the same family will have different last names, since the girls have the endings appended.
