Adolescence is a difficult time but it is particularly difficult for those who have experienced sexual abuse. The consequences to mental health from such abuse are now widely recognised. Often one of the most painful times in a young person’s life is disclosing the abuse – this can have traumatic and disruptive effects on him or her and their family that only add to the stresses of adolescence. Kate Ollier and Angela Hobday provide ways of working with teenagers helping them regain confidence and feel positive about their future to make their therapeutic journey a stimulating yet emotionally stabilising time. Emotional regulation and the development of identity, values and morals are severely hampered when the child has spent years dissociating and denying an abusive experience. Achieving attachment and healthy relationships, in a previously chaotic system, is an essential part of individual therapy and survivors of child sexual abuse need more guidance than most if they are to attain essential emotional milestones. This book is certain to appeal to all therapists 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.
