A comprehensive handbook for counsellors and therapists working with victims of child abuse - using Parks Inner Child Therapy.

Developed by Penny Parks, based on her own experience of recovering from childhood abuse, Parks Inner Child Therapy (PICT) is a flexibly structured approach to inner child work, which works through the 'today' adult to assist resolution of trauma within the 'past' child. Developed specifically for counsellors treating patients using aspects of the PICT method, this guide covers:

- The effects of childhood trauma
- PICT steps for identifying and changing mistaken beliefs
- Sample material and guidelines for use
- Dealing with anger and guilt
- The four basic Therapy Blocks

Widely used by counsellors to help people recover from sexual, physical and emotional abuse during childhood, this is a valuable reference for trained professionals overseeing recovery, as well as a useful guide as part of a self-help programme.
