Samuel's mother, Hannah, offers Samuel to God in thanksgiving to God for her
conceiving and bearing a son. Eventually Samuel, as a young child, hears and

who, upon hearing his name called, persists in running to Eli the priest, who
finally recognizes that it is God calling him and instructs the little boy to respond, “
Speak, Lord; for thy servant heareth.”10 African American religious tradition

In the centre of the building a tall brick chimney reached for the sky like the arm of
an eager child, desperate to ask a question. Elizabeth hadn't expected the
building to be so big. In her mind she'd imagined that her mother's case was
somewhat isolated, but seeing the size of the building made her understand that
there were many people like her mother who had also been locked away. Each
red brick represented one word in the sad narrative of her mother's life: one brick

I am told that while I was still in baby clothes I showed many signs of an eager,
self-asserting disposition. Everything that I saw other people do I insisted upon

everyone's attention by saying “Tea, tea, tea” quite plainly. They tell me I walked
the day I was a year old. My mother had just taken me out of the bathtub and was
holding me in her lap, when I was suddenly attracted by the flickering shadows of
leaves that ...

... past them to skulk in the sunken houses. Sarah's ghost, her blond curls water-
tousled, still wearing her spotted swimsuit, was among them. Naomi wetted her
lips with the sharpened point of her tongue. “Tell us about Teodora. Tell us about
the woman who sat combing her long dark hair and staring into the fire, while her
husband froze to death on the mountain.” With a heavy heart, Owen realized she
was as insistent as an eager child wanting to hear a favorite, oft-told bedtime
story.

The pace of learning, however, will depend on whether and to what extent the

These qualities have led clinicians and researchers to consider the use of PCIT
with other clinical populations including families with a history of child physical
abuse (CPA). Looking back, we can see how the focus on the parent-child
relationship and the direct coaching of skills in vivo make PCIT a logical fit for use
with families with a history of CPA; however, it took the vision of a pioneer in the
field of child maltreatment (Barbara Bonner) and an eager post-doctoral student
