Summary

Summary

Telling Secrets presents the art and dreams of Jane Orleman, a victim of childhood sexual abuse, as a means to identify and examine symbols of her abuse and to establish a method for aiding the healing process of other victims. The powerful color illustrations -- 103 in all -- combined with dream descriptions and insights in the accompanying text, are an effective starting point for caregivers who want to understand the overwhelming effects of childhood abuse. Survivors, therapists, therapy groups, judges, lawyers, law enforcement officers, sex offenders, teachers, and students, among others, will benefit from Jane Orleman's shared experiences.
