Item description for No Time for Lunch: Memoirs of a Inner City Psychologist by Thelma Alpert Blumberg...

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

Reviews - What do customers think about No Time for Lunch: Memoirs of a Inner City Psychologist?

No Time  Jul 28, 2006
Blumberg is a psychologist in the city of Baltimore, Maryland helping students and working in conjunction with teachers, social workers, and other school professionals. This book is her story- both inside school and in general. As the mother of an intellectually limited child herself, one of Blumberg's focuses is on increasing the interaction and understanding between health workers and the parents of the children she works with. Additionally, Blumberg is a staunch proponent of behavior management to help students, both inside and outside the classroom.

Quote: "Prevalent here are the success stories of children whose lives I helped transform, and included to are the tales of the naysayers who said `It can't be done.'"

I chose this book because I am about to begin teaching in a city school and am looking for tips and inspiration anywhere I can find them. Unfortunately, this book had very little of either. This book, short as it was, contained too much of Blumberg's life story outside of schools, and not enough just about working with the students. Ultimately, I'm sure she has helped many students during her career, it was just a bit too self-congratulatory a work for me.
