This book has certainly stood the test of time, and now in its second edition, it continues to hold its own in the under-researched and grossly underestimated world of elder abuse. The layout is clear and highly user-friendly, and this clarity is reflected through the jargon-free choice of language... It is an essential reference for any practitioner working within the community or hospital setting where older people are encountered.
Nursing Times

This well researched, informative book... would be of use to anyone working with elderly people in a hospital or community setting. Students would find it easy to understand and full of useful learning material. The book is highly recommended.
Therapy Weekly

[the author's] reputation guarantees a large and diverse readership... Workers engaged in all forms of training will find this book an invaluable aid. Community Care
...reflects wide experience and sensitivity, will be invaluable for all concerned with the care of elderly people.

"Can You Read Me: Creative Writing with Child and Adult Victims of Abuse" is the featured book of the month.
Offer price: £17.10 (P&P is FREE)

'Occupational therapists will already be familiar with the principles of group work but the book demonstrates who the use of poetry can be used to order the chaos of the thoughts of the writers and describes the practical use of journals for workers in helping victims through the healing process. The book is also littered with useful snippets of advice. It is written in an economical, plain language sensitive to the subject matter and is deceptively quick to read as you are drawn in by the emotional raw poetry and writing it contains.' (Mental Health Occupational Therapy Journal)

'The first sixty-seven pages explore the creation of the book, understanding the origins of the work it presents and seeking to analyse it. These pages, in my opinion, concretise the book's real value. In my own experience as a counsellor with survivors of abuse, writing is frequently employed as a therapeutic tool but is less frequently well-understood. The book is clear and understandable. Various exercises are handily summarised in a series of readymade handouts, which may be photocopied and reused. This would be a valuable addition to the library of anyone working, or considering work, with survivors of abuse.' (Lapidus)
