About the Author

Bonnie Meekums is a senior registered dance movement therapist and an accredited humanistic psychotherapist, registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy. She is currently lecturing in counselling for the University of Leeds and working as a freelance therapist, trainer and consultant.She sits on the general board of The Arts in Psychotherapy and holds office within the Association for Dance Movement Therapy on the Membership Registration Committee. Her previous posts have included dance therapist with East Leeds Family Service Unit and external examiner in dance movement therapy for the University of Hertfordshire.


This is a very well written and readable book balancing academic research and practitioner orientation. This balance is seen in the division of this book into two equal parts: "Theoretical Concerns" and "The Practice'. Indeed, Meekums says she had workers in mental health settings in mind when she wrote the book. This book is a good read, but is also much more an informative guide to practitioners interested in understanding more about the therapeutic issues related to sexually abused clients and also a useful resource for those who are looking to set up a group for survivors. -- Mental Health & Learning Disabilities Care
This book is a well-structured, sensitive and practical exploration of a multi-method approach to the language of healing. The book offers a springboard for creative thinking. It affirms the transformative power of witnessing and the ability of each survivor to "reclaim her own land". It contains ideas and insights about the survivor's journey from striving to thriving, which will be useful to a range of practitioners whether or not they use group work. For anyone engaged in the latter, this book is a must. I hope that it will also be used by managers and supervisors to appraise treatment resources and professional supervisory needs. In the present climate dominated by the debate about real or false memories, it is a courageous work and does not shirk this issue. -- Community Care
