Art Therapy with Young Survivors of Sexual Abuse: Lost for Words Paperback – December 14, 2000
by Jenny Murphy (Editor), Diane Waller (Foreword)
Dealing with the aftermath of childhood sexual abuse remains one of the major issues in child and adolescent mental health. Yet, until now, little has been written for art therapists and related professionals involved in this sensitive field. Art Therapy with Young Survivors of Sexual Abuse is a guide to practice with this group. Containing a range of illustrative case material from both individual and group therapy, the book addresses the important issues faced by professionals, including:
* male therapist countertransference
* the therapist’s relationship with the client’s family and wider networks
* assessment using art therapy
* the value of art therapy with groups.
Art Therapy with Young Survivors of Sexual Abuse will provide not only art therapists, but other professionals working with sexually abused children and adolescents, with a stimulating discussion of the current issues in this area.
