This book seeks to examine the most basic art therapy approaches to treatment of traumatic conditions due to sexual exploitation or abuse. It is comprehensive in that it considers various methods of using art therapy with this population, and it reviews current research and provides case illustrations. Specific areas covered include individual, group, and family art therapy. Legal issues and concerns are discussed, including the use of drawings in court proceedings and art therapists as expert witnesses. Additionally, the text addresses the "false memory" debate. The theme throughout the book is on the importance of capturing iconographic material, through the use of art therapy, to assess and/or treat individuals who have experienced sexual abuse. The collective content of the book is especially important to art therapists who are just beginning to work with this victim population. This volume pro- vides a compendium and review of a number of historical and controversial areas that are important to art therapists and other disciplines as well.
