Talking About Abuse and Trauma Pack

$107.48
Books Beyond Words - Wordless Therapy Storybooks
 
Thinking in pictures
 
People who can’t read or who don’t like written words are often very good at reading pictures. That’s why there are no words in these picture stories. These books all tell a story, but they also let the reader tell their own story – the one they see in the pictures. This can tell you a lot about a person’s inner world and their understanding of situations. There is plenty to talk about and each story explores feelings and relationships as well as giving information.
 
This pack contain 5 books:
 
Bob has moved to a group home, but his erratic behaviour and terrifying nightmares unsettle the other people living there. Sensitively, a social worker helps Bob unravel his painful past as a victim of sexual abuse. Bob discovers that talking with people he can trust begins a slow, but positive, healing process.
 
Finding a Safe Place from Abuse
Katie meets David and falls in love. She moves in with him, but the relationship turns difficult and dangerous when David begins to steal her money and hurt her. Katie quickly gets help through her GP. After a stay in a refuge, Katie begins a new life with a new sense of confidence.

The book shows that it is possible to find help and ‘get through it’. One very worrying fact is that often the person accused of hurting the man or woman with intellectual disabilities is not made to appear in court. This may be because the police and the lawyers do not think they can find enough evidence or they do not think that the person with intellectual disabilities would be able to appear in court and be a good witness. There are lots of improvements that need to be made to help people with intellectual disabilities look after themselves and know what to do. 
 
Jenny Speaks Out
Jenny has moved to a group home, but she is very unhappy and unsettled. Sensitively, her carer helps Jenny to feel secure enough to talk about why she is upset. Jenny discloses that she was sexually abused by her father. The story shows how the warmth and trust of her carer and friends begin a healing process which will bring hope and a fresh start for Jenny. Jenny Speaks Out may enable a person with intellectual disabilities or mental health problems to open up about their experience of sexual abuse.
 
When Dad Hurts Mum
After her dad is violent towards her mum, Katie is sad and distracted at college. Her teacher supports the family to get the help of an Independent Domestic Violence Advocate and the police. Katie and her mum are kept safe. Katie’s dad is court-ordered to join a group to stop his abusive behaviour.
