Description

Authors Jessica Eaton and Claire Paterson-Young present their new book 'The Little Orange Book' which contains a collection of real poems written by a child who was being sexually abused by different boys and men in her home town. Between the ages of 11 and 17, she kept a secret book of poetry where she explored her thoughts, feelings and experiences of sexual abuse and violence.

What can we learn from this unique example of writing from a child experiencing severe abuse, rape and daily violence? What can we learn about how she coped with and understood what was happening to her?

Jessica Eaton and Claire Paterson-Young work through the poems, performing thematic analysis and grounding the voice of the child in empirical literature to inform our understanding and to improve the way we support children during and after abuse. A must-read for parents and professionals alike.

The Little Orange Book contains over 20 poems, analysis, evidence from the literature and recommendations for supporting children who are experiencing sexual violence and abuse. Jessica and Claire have appointed a range of excellent peer reviewers for the book and an outstanding line up of guests for the launch day.

Confirmed speakers include:

Dr Kerry Daynes - Forensic Psychologist and Expert in Offending (Sky News, BBC etc)

Fay Maxted - The Survivors Trust CEO

Natalie Collins - Activist, speaker, writer and trainer in gender and abuse

Jo Watson - Psychotherapist, Activist and Founder of 'Drop The Disorder' FB Group

Becky Willets - Trainer for RSVP West Midlands

Frankie Hallas - Child Sexual Exploitation Lead, Statutory Services

Dr Alec Grant - Scholar in Mental Health


Launch day will include talks from both authors, talks from experts in the field of child abuse and book signings.

Tea, coffee and light refreshments are provided.
