The literature reviewed to develop this resource makes repeated reference to creative ways of working with people with intellectual disability.
Creative approaches such as drawing, drama, psychodrama, music, puppetry, sand and storytelling, among other activities, may serve as ways for trauma victims to communicate their feelings (Carey 2006, p. l8).
WWILD practitioners have successfully used creative models of practice when working with women with intellectual disability.
This area is under-researched and the information in this resource should be taken as a guide only.
We would encourage counsellors to further investigate each of the four models discussed in this section through professional training.
