The story of a long-standing weekly The respect Petr Třešňak and psychotherapists and crisis intervention trainers Petra Tresnakova we know of one of the most watched and beneficial post-revolutionary documents, of Full Moon Children. And if not, in short, it can be read not only in periodicals focused on psychology and autism, but also in the online presentation of their new book called Awakening sounds, already published by the publisher (Druhé město) by publishing the “Thursday of the Big Book” on March 19. Due to the coronavirus situation, promotional efforts did not go as planned, but also the subsequent closure of the stone bookstores book Awakening sounds won’t hurt. The readers for whom it is primarily intended, namely parents and relatives of children with autism spectrum disorders or psychiatric diagnoses with similar manifestations, will get it anyway, as there is probably no source more useful information, experience or encouragement in the home environment.

Destruction of an unaided relative
The wake-up noises mentioned in the title, which are mentioned several times in the publication, are blows to the head, with which 13-year-old Dorotka has been damaged since childhood. The girl’s parents demand almost three hundred pages to explain why this is happening, trying to describe Dorothy’s development from a “beautiful, healthy, strong child” to a “rebellious toddler” stage at a hyperactive, sleepless autistic unable to follow even basic hygiene habits and describe efforts to improve his condition, the dead ends and what worked to some extent.

They take turns in their narration. As you might expect, journalist Petr Třešňák is analytical, but he doesn’t hesitate to open up about his dreams, with obscure drug tests and unlikely treatment methods not too far removed from AKTIP practices, or with more or less esoteric experiences (pragmatists may frown when describing Indian teepee experiences). Dorotka’s mother, Petra Třešňáková, will enter the Blue Pages narrative three times, describing her mother’s experience, describing how Dorotka’s two older sisters view the situation, and possibly also reminiscing about their journey. of purification in Brazil, a ritual of ten days lived in the spiritual. community.
She was on the verge of strength. The Czech Republic does not have a social system adapted to autistic clients who require extremely demanding care; there is a lack of trained assistants and financial resources for their engagement, there is a lack of rescue services and accommodation. As a result, parents are destroyed by the often hopeless and endless mental care of an adult, even a child who is only a few months old; they have no chance to rest or to build a safe and enjoyable home for their child (and siblings).

don’t cry over you
Authors Awakening sounds they did one crucial thing: not cry over themselves, not present themselves as messiahs and, as they say, not smear it. Yes, it’s a sad story, but you can find small beautiful things in it, moments of happiness and joy about Dorothy’s progress or improvement, about the help offered by friends to completely exhausted parents. As the book draws to a close, Dorothy’s condition improves. The reader will also experience a certain “alternate” happy ending in the hopeful episode of Ivan, a much-feared severely mentally retarded patient in the “chronic agitation department” at Bohnice Pavilion 14, who was made happy by the great care of his therapist Jan Uhlíř.

The Třešňák couple worked on their book for five years and it is admirable that – despite the exhausting daily care of her daughter and the demanding job of one of the couples (Petr Třešňák was in The respect until recently, the deputy editor and his many analytical articles, especially popularizing psychology and psychiatry, won domestic and foreign awards) completed and so beneficial. Yes, sometimes it’s repetitive, and somewhere there are paragraphs about the spiritual dimension of life or the benefits of autism in the family just out of the question for someone who doesn’t have children or, thank God, who is in perfect health. But the strong points (such as describing the nervous fluctuations and subsequent physical assaults on the child) predominate. If the state doesn’t help the autistic parents associated with the Full Moon Children (currently over seventy families), thanks to the story described in this book, then…
