Activity Manual for Adolescents

Activity Manual for Adolescents

December 1997 | 120 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Designed for use along with Treatment Strategies for Abused Adolescents therapist manual, this activity manual is accessibly directed toward the adolescent in a therapeutic setting healing from early physical, sexual, or emotional trauma. Addressing the critical need for materials designed for this age group, Cheryl L. Karp, Traci L. Butler, and Sage C. Bergstrom present a four-stage approach to recovery that includes building a therapeutic relationship, incorporating corrective and reparative experiences during the abuse-focused portion of treatment, repairing the sense of self, and becoming more "future oriented." The trauma resolution activities in this book are interesting, well-planned out, and developmentally structured. Each chapter begins with an introduction skillfully and sensitively addressed to the adolescent. Together with the therapist manual, this activity manual is a welcome and timely package for therapists who often find frustration and dead-ends when searching for publications that are age-appropriate for this group of young people.
