Part Two reviews the testimonies of the therapeutic process from over 50 clients and therapists, including therapists who were themselves abused as children.These testimonies form a basis for the discussion of specific issues, such as becoming a client, talking about abuse and what happens when things go wrong in therapy. Part Three tackles the controversy surrounding 'recovered memory' and child abuse, and assesses the implications for the future direction of counselling and therapy.
