About the Course:

Two therapists outline the dissociation, disowning, and devaluing after-effects of sexual abuse; propose ways that survivors can come to terms with their experiences; and offer examples of solution-oriented therapy with individuals, groups, and couples. A sampling of topics: disrupting problem patterns and evoking solution patterns and contexts, continuity and transition rituals for healing, and innovative methods for stopping self-harm and intrusive flashbacks.

This course is based on the book, Even from a Broken Web: Solution-Oriented Therapy for Sexual Abuse and Trauma created by Bill O’Hanlon, M.S., and Bob Bertolino, Ph.D.
