Paper Dolls and Paper Airplanes is a unique collection of more than 80 activities for mental health professionals working with sexually abused children in individual or group therapy sessions. The activities use paper, crayons, stickers, puppets, music, and other items and are designed to lower the threat level of the treatment process, helping children to heal. Activities are divided into age groups—preschool, latency, preteen, and teen—to take into account developmental differences, and each activity includes a materials list, directions, and discussion questions.

The book discusses topics such as defining sexual abuse, relationships with family and friends, identifying and coping with feelings, disclosure and documentation, responsibility, personal safety, and self-esteem. Noting that saying goodbye is as important as saying hello, the authors also include information on transitions and graduations.

Paper Dolls and Paper Airplanes provides clinicians with activities and ideas that they can integrate into any sexual abuse treatment framework.

Testimonials:

“A well-organized and easy-to-use book….This manual is an invaluable source of ideas, especially because the authors offer explanations and applications for the various activities.”

--Journal of Interpersonal Violence

“If you work with sexually abused children and adolescents and do not have this book, go out and buy it! This essential resource addresses multiple issues pertaining to sexual abuse. It is useful for preschoolers, latency age children, and adolescents. Practical and clinically sound.”

--Sueann Kenney-Noziska, MSW, LICW, LCSW, RPT-S
Las Cruces, NM

“I use this book in my work with children at a psychiatric treatment facility. I am so impressed by the organization of the book, the variety of experiential techniques for all ages of children and the information provided for therapists as guidance for using the activities. You need his book for your resource library!”
