Arts Therapies and Sexual Offending
A resource for arts therapists and other clinicians on working with people who have committed sexual offences. There is a strong focus on the value of establishing a therapeutic relationship involving non-verbal media as a cornerstone, drawing upon current research and practice. Emphasis is placed on working with transference and counter-transference, being trauma-informed, and making use of effective supervision.
This group of offenders can benefit hugely from the provision of arts therapies, and this book provides valuable experiences of working with people who have committed sexual offences.
