Example text

So some of our work is helping parents to perceive that their child’s behaviour is not driven by naughtiness but fear. Applying appropriate parental management to such a situation may be the opposite of enforcing punitive measures. Working with children and families I try to make the experience in the play room, where the art therapy sessions take place, an interesting one. This can engender an openness to learning and new ways of being. It is important groundwork for establishing a safe relationship with an adult (someone other than a relative or teacher), in which the child can practise new behaviour.

This time she and her mother were taken into our child protection service. Now aged 13, Eliza experienced disturbing and explicit flashbacks of the abuse. She had no comprehension of how someone could deliberately hurt her, and expressed puzzlement that ‘he didn’t say sorry’. Eliza cried and accepted comfort from her mum, after describing cruel physical and sexual abuse. It was more difficult for her to express the anger that was underlying her tears. She loved to draw, but her images were of ‘happy things’, such as flowers and sunshine, perhaps reflecting her mother’s urgent wish to make things better for her, and Eliza’s wish to please.

Working in tandem with the non-abusive parent alongside the child can have a significantly positive effect on the outcome (Ambridge 2001). Eliza’s ability to express her anger in such a direct way was almost certainly made possible by her mother, Karen, acquiring the ability to receive it. The first step was separating from her abusive partner. This enabled her, even before Eliza disclosed the abuse, to think about the way she (as well as the children) had been systematically controlled. Memories flooded to the surface and were quickly shared and addressed in a process which helped her to regain her autonomy and power as a positive, protective and confident mother.
