Adolescence is a difficult time but it is particularly difficult for those who have experienced sexual abuse.
In Creative Therapy: Adolescents Overcoming Child Sexual Abuse, authors Kate Ollier and Angela Hobday provide ways of working with teenagers to help them regain confidence and feel positive about their future and to make their therapeutic journey a stimulating yet emotionally stabilising time.
As each person reacts differently, Creative Therapy has a wide variety of over 100 activities and coping strategies that can be tailored to the individual. The activities use a multi-modal approach, designed to make therapy both effective and, as far as possible, fun.
The activities cover many areas of need for survivors of sexual abuse, from learning to recognise and regulate emotion to self-identity and coping strategies on which the young person can build a bright future.
Creative Therapy is certain to appeal to all therapists and clinicians working in the area of abuse. Even the most experienced professional is likely to be inspired by the range of lively ideas dealing with a very difficult subject.
