British Journal of Occupational Therapy
The therapeutic interventions are excellent in this book; the author explains and describes the use of a variety of creative media in different clinical settings. There is also a strong theoretical element which complements the use of case studies and the practical application of using art as a medium in the recovery process. Professionals who are dealing with children who have been sexually abused or adult survivors, or those working in specialist treatment centres with perpetrators, would therefore find this book an invaluable resource and compulsory reading.
Maralynn Hagood brings many examples and practical suggestions, backed up by ample references, images, and personal experience, to demonstrate very clearly and extensively the effective use of art in counselling child and adult survivors of sexual abuse.
