Book Description

30 Jan 2010 1843104377 978-1843104377 1
Children and Adolescents in Trauma presents a variety of creative approaches to working with young people in residential children's homes, secure or psychiatric units, and special schools. The contributors describe a wide range of approaches, including art therapy and literature, and how creative methods are applied in cases of abuse, trauma, violence, self-harm and identity development. They discuss the impact of abuse and mistreatment upon the mental health of 'looked after' children, drawing links between psychoanalytic theory and practice and the study of literature and the arts. This indispensable book provides useful insights and a fresh perspective for anyone working with traumatized children and adolescents, including social workers, psychotherapists, arts therapists, psychiatrists, counselors, psychologists and students in these fields. Community, Culture and Change encompasses a wide range of ideas and theoretical models related to communities and cultures as a whole, embracing key Therapeutic Community concepts such as collective responsibility, citizenship and empowerment, as well as multidisciplinary ways of working and the social origins of distress. The ways in which our social and therapeutic worlds are changing are illustrated by the innovative and creative work described in these books.

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding read 3 April 2012
By Sapphi
This is a 'must have' book for those working with children and adolescents in crisis. It offers deep understanding into the issues professionals face and what might be and will be effective in response. It is great because, with several contributing professionals, it provides a superb all-round balance in experience, knowledge, insight, topics and in offering ways forward. Lots of depth to the content, it is a book you repeatedly go back to and find increased understanding over time. Excellent.
