by Sharon L. Bullard Creative Development of Self (CDS): An Intervention for Healthy Self and Healthy Relationships is a workbook designed for facilitating group sessions with clients who have exhibited abusive behavior toward others. The authors advocate a multi-dimensional approach to treating individuals with attachment issues, self-pleasing defenses, cognitive distortions, and unresolved development crises. Through this outline of sixteen sessions, the use of clinical drawings is intended to facilitate the discovery of self and of healthy communication. Creative Development of Self (CDS): An Introduction for Healthy Self and Healthy Relationships is designed to provide flexible resources for the therapist and to assist in the facilitation of the group process. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Sharon L. Bullard, Titsa M. Flesch, and Michelle F. Newman are social workers and therapists currently practicing in South Carolina and Georgia. All three hold master of science degrees in social work, are members of the National Association of Social Workers, and have extensive clinical experience. Together they offer a unique perspective designed to break through defense mechanisms and lead to personal and behavioral changes. Their years of study and observations are combined in Creative Development of Self, their first collaborative work. (2003, paperback, 114 pages)
