Transcript ALONENESS By Jeanne Gibbons Being alone, by chance or by choice, can offer opportunities for creative growth according to counselors Mary Jane Hurlbert and Jan Burke. Inspired by Marilyn Doyle's multi-media presentation entitled Aloneness, these women are offering a "Creative Aloneness" workshop at the First Unitarian Church to assist persons in developing assertive- ness communication skills and increased self-awareness. They hope to de-mythologize alone- and togetherness and explore alternative, to aloneness. "Knowing that I am afraid of aloneness has caused me to i .amine my behavior," explains Burke, "and to become Nurses meet October 29 cr n zr -y ft c cr O aware that I have to make other choices." Men and women-marnea and single-can be lonely say Hurlbert and Burke, and often either sex assumes that the other deals with aloneness better. Both counselors have worked with men who resented the socialized male role of choosing and initiating actions and with women who resented their socialized role of waiting to be chosen. Hurlbert and Burke, both professional family, marriage and divorce counselors, plan to identify the real and imagined limitations to creative living: the way people become addicted to roles, work, schedules and even other people, including children. They are also planning other workshops to be held at the First Unitarian Church, on "The Power To Choose" and "Transitions." The "Creative Aloneness" workshop begins October 5 at the First Unitarian Church, 5210 Fannin, from 9:30—10 on five consecutive Tuesday evenings. For information and/ or reservations for the class, call 527-0712 or write Mary Jane Hurlbert, 3303 Louisiana, Suite 211C, Houston 77006. The fee is $35 for members of the First Unitarian Church, $40 for non- members and is payable at the workshop. Nurses from all over southeast Texas will gather October 29 at the Astroworld Hotel to discuss the sex role problems of professional health care. "Nurses have yet to . . .overcome their feminine socialization enough to feel it is appropriate to ask what they are getting in return for all their services," Dr. Janet Chafetz told Breakthrough. Chafetz will speak about "social programming for a feminine profession" at the conference sponsored by the Texas Nurses Association, District 9. The meeting, called "A New Era: Power for Professional Change," is open to non-members. Chafetz says the role of the nurse now is that of helper and stroker but lacks authority. The nurse is always subordinate to the doctor. Neither of the two most common stereotypes of nurses— the Cherry Ames sweet, docile little girl looking for a doctor husband and the Hot Lips Houlahan sexy bitch-resembles real nurses. All women's roles are defined as selfless helpers of others, Chafetz says. Nurses are just beginning to learn-as teachers have-that it is neither unprofessional nor unfeminine to be concerned with pay, fringe benefits, working conditions and status in the profession. Given its high educational requirements, it is only because it is a predominantly female field that nursing has remained so poorly organized, poorly paid and low in prestige. For more information about the meeting and registration fees, call the Texas Nurses Association at 523-3619.
