Three Voices No One Heard Until A Therapist ListenedBook - 2005
From the bestselling author of One Child comes the story of three of former special education teacher Torey Hayden's most extraordinary challenges.
Nine-year-old Cassandra, kidnapped by her father and found starving, dirty, and picking through garbage cans--is a child prone to long silences and erratic, violent behavior.
Charming, charismatic four-year-old Drake will speak only in private to his mother--while his tough, unbending grandfather's demands for an immediate cure threatens to cause irreparable harm.
And though she had never worked with adults, Hayden agrees to help fearful and silent eighty-two-year-old massive stroke victim Gerda--discovering in the process that a treatment's successes could prove nearly as heartbreaking as its limitations.

"You believe that if you only do this one more thing, you will finally connect with the person and he or she will start to get better. This is actually a normal caring response... The person in need responds to them by getting better... The highly manipulative individual has a different reaction. Instead of improving, he or she uses these responses to perpetuate a destructive behavioral cycle and, in fact, actually manipulates people to provoke such reactions from them to feed this cycle. Consequently, the normal caring response has the opposite effect on these mentally ill individuals and actually perpetuates the problem rather than stopping it. In most instances, this manipulation is not a conscious effort on the part of the mentally ill person. They do not set out purposefully to control other people in this manner."
