The Mosaic Mind
Empowering the Tormented Selves of Child Abuse Survivors
In this book, Goulding and Schwartz offer an important addition to the increasingly popular and practical focus on resources upon which adult survivors of childhood abuse draw to get through traumatic and challenging experiences - resources which, today, continue to be available as essential tools in masterful living. As I read the case history that underpins much of The Mosaic Mind, I appreciated the honest and creativity Schwartz has brought to the development of his Internal Family Systems model. In it, he has expanded our understanding of working with parts - in both client and therapist alike - and added to the means by which these parts may be involved in the therapeutic journey in positive and creative ways.
