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.
