Faisandier, John; Thomson, Vivienne Social Atom Repair and Lifelong Learning (PDF, 325.4 KB) Journal 23 December 2014 Joan Chappell was one of the great thinkers and quiet toilers in AANZPA. She died in 2013 at the age of 92 in Tauranga after a life of working as a psychiatrist, GP and psychodramatist. She grew up in England, moved to Christchurch in the early 1970s before retiring to a 'lifestyle village' in Tauranga in 1992. She was not easily understood by many in AANZPA. Vivienne Thomson and I were her only two TEPITs (Trainer, Educator, Practitioner in Training) because somehow we were able to tune in to her way of working. At conferences and FTINZ meetings she would make herself available to us, sometimes at 7 in the morning for supervision. Despite, and perhaps because of, her quirky way of working we gained a tremendous amount from Joan. 9 2014-12
