This latest book in the Living Therapy series has been written with the express intention of providing the reader with insight into the living experience of working with a client who is a survivor of child sexual abuse. The counsellor works from the person-centred model and, as with previous books in this series, Problem Drinking: a person-centred dialogue (Bryant-Jefferies, 2003) and Time Limited Therapy in Primary Care: a person-centred dialogue (Bryant-Jefferies, 2003), the actual dialogue and the characters involved are all fictitious. It is not intended that the counsellor or the supervisor be portrayed as perfect in their work, that would be unrealistic and would therefore be incongruent to the aim of this book, which is to offer a realistic experience. The counsellor takes the work he or she is doing with their client to regular supervision, and these sessions are also included. They provide an added dimension to the work being undertaken and offer the reader an appreciation of the use of supervision as both a personal and professional discipline to ensure healthy and safe practice both for the welfare of the client and the counsellor.
