Book “Putting soul to pain. Therapeutic intervention with children, girls and adolescents victims of child sexual abuse” coordinated by Pepa Horno

Portada del libro "Poniendo alma al dolor"Technical supervision is a unique learning space, not only for those who receive it but for those who supervise. In recent years since CI Spirals We have the privilege of supervising teams of professionals from different areas of the protection system. The objective is to improve the quality of the intervention from the professional's awareness process. A space in which cases are discussed, but above all from the internal experience of each professional and as a team.

In these spaces we meet incredible professionals. Professionals with a great technical background, but above all with an inestimable human quality and a commitment to the pain of the people they serve difficult to match. This is the case of Elena González, Carolina Moniño and Carmen Ruiz, psychologists of the UTASI, The Therapeutic Unit for Child Sexual Abuse who created the Directorate General of Children, Youth and Families of the Government of the Balearic Islands to take care of the children, girls and adolescents victims of sexual abuse and with protective families.

Within the framework of this supervision, the project for this book arose, Putting soul to pain. Therapeutic intervention with children, girls and adolescents victims of child sexual abuse, which has just been published by the editorial Desclée De Brouwer. Again we thank the editorial Desclée De Brouwer its commitment to the publication and dissemination of works aimed at improving technical interventions from psychology.

In recent years, many publications on child sexual abuse have been developed in our country. But very few describe the therapeutic process for caring for children, girls and adolescents victims of sexual abuse. We are not referring to a technical manual on areas to address or understanding abuse, but to a detailed description of HOW to approach it. A description of the process that is followed in the consultation from the first day the child arrives, girl or adolescent until closing session. With enough detail to allow it to be replicated by other professionals in various contexts. Professionals who work, being or not aware of it, with children, girls and adolescents victims of child sexual abuse. For this reason, from CI Spirals we recommend reading it to all professionals who work in the protection system, but not only, also to any therapist who works with children, and adolescents.

Putting soul to pain also has a second value, and it is the bet that its authors made to give soul and voice to that story. And it could not be another voice than that of children, girls and adolescents who went through treatment at the time and their families. Because his voice is the only one that can convey his courage, their capacity for resilience and their therapeutic process.

Child sexual abuse does not have to be a conviction, and the stories in this book prove it. It does not imply a sentence if the appropriate therapeutic help and accompaniment is received, in which affective warmth is understood as a condition for technical rigor. Nor is it a condemnation if you have a solid emotional support network, which is another factor that is talked about a lot in this book: the role of the support network beyond families. The stories in its pages give this book congruence and consistency.

For me it has been a privilege to coordinate and participate in the development of this book, as well as for Javier Romeo carry out the first technical review of your content. We believe that it is a necessary book and had to be written by active professionals, with the legitimacy of years of experience watching children, girls and adolescents victims of child sexual abuse. And with the soul that only three professionals like them could give their pages.

As I wrote in the prologue, “This book keeps the horror and wonder of which the human being is capable. Y, especially, the light that arises from the darkness when professional rigor is united, honesty and human warmth”. We trust that you will receive the welcome you deserve.
