IRCT Trustee publishes new book

Childhood Trauma and Recovery: A Child Centred Approach to Healing Early Years Abuse

By Mary Walsh and Neil Thompson

As one of our trustees, Mary Walsh has been at the forefront of delivering recovery for traumatised children for 30 years. In 1987 she co-founded Sexual Abuse Child Consultancy Services (SACCS), the leading provider of specialist care for children with a history of trauma, neglect and abuse. Within SACCS she also led the Mary Walsh Institute, focused on training sector professionals.

Childhood Trauma and Recovery presents best practice in helping children affected by early life sexual abuse to recover and lead healthy lives. At its heart is the SACCS approach. By creating recovery teams that cross over traditional boundaries to put the child at the centre of all activity, the approach enables young people to replace unhealthy ways of thinking with stronger, more appropriate cause-effect mechanisms.

There will be an official launch of the book at our Trauma Informed Practice Conference on the 25th and 26th September.
