This is a trailer for a documentary that will be available on the blog shortly. It will include an interview with the survivor who wrote the first-hand account of the therapy that can be seen elsewhere in this blog. This young man experienced many years of severe anxiety and trauma after undergoing a two-year programme of Holding Therapy in the UK – he continues to undergo (non-intrusive) therapy even now. A remarkable resilience has enabled him to tell his story.
The full documentary will include an interview with Professor Jean Mercer and a US survivor of Holding Therapy (who is referred to in Professor Mercer’s British Journal of Social Work article). There will also be an update on the legal and criminal investigations that are now being conducted into this programme of H.T.
