Treatment Strategies for Abused Adolescents
From Victim to Survivor



January 1998 | 216 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Therapists can find helping adolescents who have suffered from early physical, sexual and/or emotional trauma to move through trauma resolution to emerge as healthy survivors a frustrating task, because of a scarcity of reference material available for this age group. This volume - together with the accompanying Activity Manual - has been written to fill this gap.

The volume provides a practical and accessible package of theory and hands-on activities, specifically designed for use by practitioners in either individual or group settings. The authors highlight their four-phase approach of recovery: building the therapeutic relationship; processing the abuse; repairing the sense of self; and becoming more `future oriented'. Case studies are included to demonstrate how some of the activities have been used in actual therapeutic situations.
