This book provides understanding and practical guidance for those traumatized by sexual abuse, their families, friends and therapists. Stephanie Mines' approach can be applied with or without a therapist and involves healing through the therapeutic use of art-making in all its forms. A key to healing is treating trauma as a sacred wound on the model of the shaman's initiatic wounding. Stories of men and women healed through expressive therapies, sexual abuse in the name of spirituality, sexual abuse and the family, support resources including extensive lists of organizations and publications, and examples of patients' expressive work.
