Katherine Flannery Dering, author of Shot in the Head: A Sister's Memoir, A Brother's Struggle, shares her story of caring for her brother, Paul, who was diagnosed with schizophrenia at the age of 16.
Katherine Flannery Dering, author of Shot in the Head: A Sister’s Memoir, A Brother’s Struggle (Bridgeross Communications; 2014) is the second of ten children. Her younger brother, Paul, was diagnosed with schizophrenia at the age of 16. Busy with her own family and career, she helped with his care only intermittently for many years, but took on a more intense role after her parents death and especially after he developed physical ailments, as well as the psychological ones. She found herself very moved by the experience and writes about caring for her brother in hopes that it will enlighten the public on the role of caregivers. Katherine holds an MFA from Manhattanville College, a BA from Le Moyne College, an MA from the University of Buffalo and a MBA from the University of Minnesota at Duluth. Her poetry and essays have appeared in Inkwell Magazine, as well as The Bedford Record Review, Northwords Press, Sensations Magazine, Pandaloon Press, Poetry Motel and Pink Elephant Magazine. A narrative non-fiction piece, which later became a chapter of Shot in the Head, was included in Stories from the Couch, an anthology of essays about coping with mental illness. Dering taught Spanish briefly and is a former CFO at a community bank in New York. She currently serves on the board of directors of a startup bank and actively volunteers with the League of Women Voters and the Northern Westchester Community Center.

HOW DOES IT GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT!
in Self Help
When we go through a breakup, experience the loss of a loved one, home, job, lifestyle...it's quite natural to feel lost and afraid, even bereft. Especially when someone we love leaves or "betrays" us the feelings can carry us right back to our childhood, to our youth, to a time when mommy neglected or rejected us or daddy abused or abandoned us.
So what do we do during such times of pain and heartache? How do we handle loneliness and feelings of emptiness? And why is it vitally important that we look within, rather than "out there," when we're hurting and afraid. Please tune in Thursday, November 20 at 6:30 to Own Your Power with DeBora M. Ricks as we turn our attention to "Caring for the Child Within."
