This updated and expanded edition provides comprehensive coverage of the theory and practice of counselling survivors of child sexual abuse (CSA). In a reasoned and thoughtful approach, common stereotypes of abusers and their victims are replaced with current knowledge on the incidence of CSA and its long-term impacts on adult survivors. Christiane Sanderson explores the therapeutic relationship from building trust and meeting the client's needs to establishing boundaries, addressing transference issues and avoiding secondary traumatic stress. She evaluates various treatment approaches and techniques, and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of group therapy. Stand-alone chapters provide in-depth coverage of: * CSA's impact on survivors' sense of self and their relationships with others * self-harming behaviour, including self-injury, substance abuse and eating disorders * how memory is constructed and reconstructed, including the controversial issues surrounding recovered memories * useful approaches to coping with fear and loss from working with other types of trauma * normal sexual development and typical sexual difficulties for survivors * working with shame and dissociation. Counselling Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse honestly addresses the complex issues in this important area of work. It provides practical strategies for those new to counselling in this field and valuable new insights for experienced counsellors.

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.

This book is a useful reference for anyone seeking to provide therapy to survivors of sexual abuse. The approach represented here is a holistic one that utilizes various approaches to heal the various manifestations of sexual abuse trauma. Since the acts associated with such abuse are often so difficult to discuss, this book presents several methods of communicating these unspeakable horrors nonverbally, allowing the survivor to express their trauma with less difficulty.

"It is the denial of self with all rights refused." This line, taken from the poem that opens Casualties of Childhood, reflects and resonates the profound impact of sexual abuse on its victims. The poet is able to name feelings. But for those who cannot, for whom feelings lie beyond verbal expression, art can offer a significant alternative vocabulary, a compelling language of revealing imagery. Over 150 pieces of art are reproduced within these pages. Authors Bobbie Kaufman and Agnes Wohl are effective and compassionate translators. Against the backdrop of powerful case vignettes and their accompanying House, Tree, Person and Kinetic Family Drawings, the discussion focuses primarily on the essential link between childhood sexual abuse and specific developmental problems. Given that sexual abuse is commonly directed toward latency-age young people, it is imperative that this connection be given greater emphasis in the literature. Casualties of Childhood represents an important step in that direction. Carefully laying the foundation for their discussion, the authors begin by defining Paradigms of Trauma and Sexual Abuse followed by General Principles in the Analysis of Projective Drawings. With this groundwork in place, attention is then turned to specific areas of investigation: The Projections of Ego Functions of Sexually Abused Children; Aberrations in the Superego of Sexually Molested Youngsters; and the Incestuous Family's Influence on the Development of Object Relations During Latency. The book concludes with an enlightening perspective on Adult Survivors: The Long-term Effects of Childhood Sexual Abuse. Taken as a whole, Casualties of Childhood brings to life the full dimension of sexual victimization, its meaning and consequences for the individual, the family, and, by extension, the society. For therapists of all persuasions, it is a much-needed resource.

While the psychotherapeutic world has made significant strides in documenting the treatment of women victims of sexual abuse, little has been written on therapeutic responses to men. This may be understood as being partly due to the reluctance of male survivors to expose their history of abuse to clinical eyes. This may be exacerbated by a particular brand of masculine shame that causes male victims to be even more silenced than female survivors. Based on the author's extensive clinical experience of working with children and adult victims of sexual crime, Psychotherapy with Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse looks at the long history of male sexual abuse, positioning it not simply as a new phenomenon, but one that has a long but undocumented history. Anonymised case studies provide the backdrop for in-depth explorations of various consequences of sexual abuse, including sexual addiction, profound depression, gender dysphoria, eating disorders, self harm, suicidal ideation, and dissociation.

#1 New York Times bestseller “Essential reading for anyone interested in understanding and treating traumatic stress and the scope of its impact on society.” —Alexander McFarlane, Director of the Centre for Traumatic Stress Studies A pioneering researcher transforms our understanding of trauma and offers a bold new paradigm for healing in this New York Times bestseller Trauma is a fact of life. Veterans and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat; one in five Americans has been molested; one in four grew up with alcoholics; one in three couples have engaged in physical violence. Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, one of the world’s foremost experts on trauma, has spent over three decades working with survivors. In The Body Keeps the Score, he uses recent scientific advances to show how trauma literally reshapes both body and brain, compromising sufferers’ capacities for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust. He explores innovative treatments—from neurofeedback and meditation to sports, drama, and yoga—that offer new paths to recovery by activating the brain’s natural neuroplasticity. Based on Dr. van der Kolk’s own research and that of other leading specialists, The Body Keeps the Score exposes the tremendous power of our relationships both to hurt and to heal—and offers new hope for reclaiming lives.

Psychological trauma is a multifaceted phenomenon with extensive involvement of biochemical and neurological changes. This book originated on the basis of clinical observations and the authors believe that trauma is the region in which psych and soma meet each other and integrate, becoming a single entity. In this text, the authors attempt to integrate the psychosocial and bio-neuro-endocrine aspects of human experience, including trauma. Chapter 1 provides a psychobiological perspective of incest, and sexual abuse, and considers the stages of and reactions to incest that trauma clients have experienced. Chapter 2 focuses on trauma-related syndromes associated with survivors of sexual abuse. Chapter 3 continues the theme of the second chapter, providing further discussion of the link between sexual trauma and somatic sensations of discomfort and pain. Chapter 4 describes the frustration in treating drug/alcohol addicts and the discovery that these individuals have a history of hidden trauma which haunts them and prevents recovery. Chapter 5 explores the victims response to trauma and examines the nontraditional treatment models for psychological trauma. Chapter 6 presents psychotherapy practices used with incest survivors, and details treatment principles and goals and explains new treatment options. Chapter 7 explores the practice of pharmacotherapy in treating trauma-related disorders and focuses on the use of a variety of psychiatric medications for the treatment of PTSD. Chapter 8 presents creative and rehabilitative practices for treating victimized children and adolescents, pointing to the importance of art therapy in the recovery process of traumatized individuals. Chapter 9 provides an overview of play therapy/cognitive-behavioral therapy for sexually abused children and adolescents. Readers will find in this text a diversity of research topics and a variety of clinical observations that are not only useful but timely.

This book integrates nonverbal modalities - visual imagery, kinesthetic imagery, and body movement - into verbal psychotherapy with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. These survivors often have difficulty verbalizing their memories and their pain. The use of nonverbal modalities may assist them in transforming the silence of childhood into the language of the adult. Based on her work with women survivors, the author presents explicit exercises, case examples, and patients' artwork demonstrating the use of art and movement therapies in the context of goal-specific treatment. Each task is carefully selected to match the phase of therapy and to meet one of three goals: containment, exploration, or expression. Within this framework, nonverbal modalities can be used to enrich the assessment process, contain flashbacks, create a safe environment, develop coping mechanisms, connect body and mind and enhance creative problem-solving. In addition, the author shows how to use art and movement strategies in memory retrieval, anger work, and development of a sense of self. In the hands of sensitive, well-trained therapists, nonverbal modalities can be a powerful addition to the treatment of sexual abuse survivors. Susan Simonds bridges creative arts therapy and survivor therapy to enable therapists to make the most of this power.
