Abstract

It gives me great pleasure to comment on Nora's description of her tenacity and those of her group in attempting to get a CAPSLE program going in the very complex and violent situation in schools in a Budapest district. She summarizes both the immense effort and the failure of that effort together with a number of likely unconscious reasons for that failure. My own reading of the situation presented openly for readers of our journal, is that the error in reality was primarily mine.
