British Journal of Social Work Publish Article on Holding Therapy

The British Journal of Social Work have published an article which attempted to rehabilitate Holding Therapy in the UK. The original study, which concerned the same organisation described elsewhere in this blog, was undertaken a number of years ago. The recently published findings have been critiqued in an article by Professor Jean Mercer which can be found at –

My sense is that the publication of this article will be a key event in the campaign to raise awareness of Holding Therapy in the UK.

    – I totally agree with these reasons..Good work letting people know about this.

    Words cannot describe my shock/horror that this so called ‘therapy’ is perpetuated, when it has caused deaths/torture to vulnerable children. In the US, a state governor passed the ‘Candice’ law, after a child was re-birthed and suffocated.
