One of our Headspace therapists, Liz Smith, contributed a chapter to the newly released book #MeToo – Counsellors and psychotherapists speak about sexual violence and abuse. This edited collection is co-written by counsellors, therapists and clients. It explores issues of ‘dual identity’ and offers a space for counsellors and therapists to talk about their own lives as practitioners, trainees and trainers with lived experience. Liz and co-author Sara Mollis write from a person-centred perspective about the denial and erasure of dual identities in therapy training and how this impacted the development of their professional identities as therapists. The book has been in demand since its release, selling out on Amazon on its first week and attracting high profile reviewers in the field.
“#MeToo presents a diverse, accessible and deeply moving collection of chapters on this issue, from both personal and professional perspectives. As such it is a vital resource for our field” – Mick Cooper.
