Product Description

Thelma Blumberg has seen it all: children with elective mutism, children physically abused, children on drugs, children who create fear in others and children who live their lives in fear. The Baltimore City School system is a good place to find a cross-section of such children. The Jewish Day Schools also present experiences which keep a school psychologist on her toes. Working in Israel, in Kiryat Arba, among other places, Thelma sees what happens when shock and trauma become everyday occurrences. While in Israel, Thelma finds herself counseling children sent by their parents to “find themselves” – to kick their drug habits and/or their non-responsiveness to Judaism, and come back home “cured”. Through it all, Thelma has to care for her emotionally troubled son, making sure he has what he needs to confront his obstacles. How does she do it? That’s the secret of Thelma Blumberg.
Thelma Blumberg was School Psychologist for the Baltimore City Public Schools for almost 25 years. She is a member of the National Association of School Psychologists and presents workshops for teachers, psychologists and public service workers of the Baltimore City Schools, as well as P’Tach and the Jewish Day Schools of Baltimore. Thelma has written for The Baltimore Sun, The Jewish Press, The Chicago Sentinel, and Little, Brown & Co. She was Contributing Editor for Communique, the monthly publication of the National Association of School Psychologists. Her award winning research article, “Alvin: A Case Study” appeared in The Evening Sun.
