It provides strong theoretical evidence for working creatively with traumatized children and presents relevant case material which illustrates how Bannister has successfully applied this theory to practice...It is an essential resource for all creative therapists working with children who have suffered abuse, providing a model of intervention which seeks to "return the power of regeneration to the young person." ' - Irish Association of Creative Arts Therapists Journal 'a lovely combination of theory and practice written in an easy to digest style...It was rewarding to read how the arts could be used so effectively to help children in what was very short term work. During the case studies there were some inspiring pieces of work presented as both therapist and children strove to make sense of the unthinkable and unsayable using the arts.' - Family Futures Consortium 'Anne Bannister is one of Psychodrama's great practitioners in the field of working with children and young people. This book is testimony to her endless and untiring work alongside children. She is someone who is playful, creative, energetic, and a strong advocate and witness, for those children whose voices may have been silenced through abusive experiences...This book is a must for all who work with traumatised people and it provides a well grounded and safe model that allows for people to grow and develop.' -BPA Journal
