Who Can Curly Trust
Who Can Curly Trust is a book that addresses the therapeutic processes in a way that children and low functioning teenagers/adults can understand. Confidentiality is a major of part of the functions of psychotherapy, especially with children. Confidentiality plays an important role in the administration of individual and group therapy. This children's picture book takes the reader through the process of attending therapy and explores issues such as confidentiality that can be understood in a non threatening manner. Today many clinicians see children who have been victims of sexual trauma, neglect, bullying, foster care, arguing parents and many other phenomena that have victimized them. These children often have emotional, psychological, and behavioral symptoms that affect them on a daily basis. When children have been victims of significant trauma they build walls around themselves and distrust not only other people but the world in general (i.e. Freud's oral stage of development; trust vs. mistrust). Who Can Curly Trust is a book that can be used by clinicians to build rapport and trust with their young clients, at the same time explaining to them how therapy works and the limits of confidentiality. Clinicians frequently struggle with explaining confidentiality to child-aged clients, this book can be used as a tool for therapists to open up a discussion and explain their mandated requirement of privacy to young children.
