The term 'dysfunctional' family has become a com- mon term in our culture and is joked about with cool detachment. How- ever, serious issues may be underlying, which have a negative impact on all those involved. Depres- sion, substance abuse, rela- tionship problems, or more serious brain disorders af- fect not only the individual, but care-givers and family members as well. As the familiar nursery .rhyme goes••, ash~s, ashes, we all fall down. For more than 25 years, the Center for Counseling, Growth and Development has been offering counsel- ing services through Jewish Family Services. Experi- enced mental health profes- sionals are available to help in a confidential setting. Licensed staff provides as- sessment and counseling sessions for individuals, couples, children and fami- "lies regardless of religion or ethnic background. As Susan Weissmann, LCSW, clinical.director at CCGD, puts it, "Living with the various psycho~ocial, emotional or physical adversities disrupts lives and affects families long after the initial onset has occurred. These dynam- ics left untreated isolates families and family mem- bers, thus adding to today's stress and the easy use of the term 'dysfunctional' family." CCGD now has two • offices where a multi- dimensional approach to therapy helps promote resilience and is provided in a safe and caring en- vironment. The two lo- cations are, The George Wolly Center at 2100 Lee Road in Winter Park and the new Southwest Orlando Office at 11184 S. Apopka-Vineland Road in Orlando. Fees are charged on a sliding scale basis, and the program accepts in- surance payments from Medicare, United Health- care and Aetna• Day and evening appointments are available. If you or someone you know could benefit from professional counseling, call 407-644- 7593, ext. 231. Greg Dawson, Orlando Sentinel consumer col- umnist, will talk about his recently published book "Hiding in the Spotlight: A Musical Prodigy's Story of Survival, 1941-1946" at the South Orlando Jewish Congregation on Sept. 23 at 5:45 p.m. The story is about how his mother, Zhanna, sur- vived the Holocaust. She was a young Jewish girl from Ukraine, who also happened to be a piano prodigy, giving concerts by the age of 6. When disaster struck her hometown a'nd her family was condemned to exile and execution, Zhanna managed to es- cape the famed Nazi death march to Dorbitsky Yar and used her rare musical gift to help her survive. Performing and giving concerts for the occupy- ing German troops as they moved throughout Europe, Zhanna kept her true iden- tity a secret until a young American soldier with ties to Jul'liard adopted her. Dawson is a columnist for the Orlando Senti- nel. He has been a journal- ist for over 40 years in a variety of writing positions since his high school days covering sports for his hometown newspaper in Bloomington, Ind. He was 20 years old before he knew he was Jewish and 50 before he knew the full story of his mother's plight during the war.
