"Only Connect"--A Sexually Abused Girl's Rediscovery of Memory and Meaning as She Works towards the Transition from a Therapeutic Community to a Foster-Family
Cant, Diana
Journal of Child Psychotherapy, v31 n1 p6-23 Apr 2005
This paper looks at the role of individual psychotherapy with a severely sexually abused girl in a therapeutic community, and the place of this work as she makes the transition into foster-care. It emphasizes the importance, not only of the individual work, but also of the drawing together of the work around the child, particularly at such a critical time. There is discussion of the ideas of "deadness" versus "aliveness" in the therapy, and detailed case material is used.
