It took 14 years to write this book. As it evolved through phases of yellow legal pads, master's thesis and finally a book, buried embers in my belly erupted into a roaring bonfire. My "mission" was born - to increase awareness of sexual abuse and trauma so greater understanding can be gained. Primarily, changing the paradigm from victim to survivor to healing and success in society. Creative arts innately allow the right brain to bypass the linear, cognitive left brain to promote positive therapeutic outcomes. From my personal experience of creative arts, augmented by talk therapy, I acquired the resilience to lead a productive and successful life. My book provides "therapy" in the creative arts - with my history, poems and drawings, a 60 page journal for you, professional art therapy modalities and an extensive resource guide. I pray, with all my heart, as you move through your wounded spirit, that you will find healing, hope and success in your life.

Bruce D. Perry, M.D., Ph.D.Bruce D. Perry, M.D., Ph.D., pens the foreword in Julia's book addressing sexual abuse: Healed by Light: Professional Art Therapy.

"It is my great honor to write the foreword for this courageous book. Over the years of working with traumatized and maltreated children I have been fortunate to meet so many strong and wise people. We know from years of research and clinical work that developmental trauma can cause alterations in the organization and function of the brain; the emotional, behavioral, cognitive and physiological impact of trauma in childhood is very high. Yet some find a way through developmental trauma to health. They exhibit elements of resilience and health despite all of their distress. Julia is one of these people. Through adversity and pain she grew wise. The cost of this wisdom is high; yet the insight of these heroes is remarkable. Heroism comes through in the pages of this book. Julia is a brave woman to open up her past and present to so many; she does it as a gift to us. We are meant to learn from her life lessons. And, what we will learn is that hope, endurance of the human spirit and the kindness of others can combine to heal even the most terrible of traumas. So, thank you, Julia, and let all readers be grateful for this gift."

Dr. Perry is the Senior Fellow for the ChildTrauma Academy in Houston, an international trauma consultant for the Columbine shootings, the Oklahoma bombings, the 9/11 Terrorist attacks and others. He has appeared on many national television shows including The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, 20/20, Nightline, PBS and others. Dr. Perry is the co-author of The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog.

Richard Ducote, Attorney for Children and Sexual Abuse ExpertRichard Ducote, Attorney for Children and Sexual Abuse Expert, endorses Julia's Healed by Light: Professional Art Therapy book, saying:
"Julia has taken her deepest pain and her childhood betrayal and wrapped them in the healed and confident words of a true survivor, giving the world a gift with her book so that we can all know the reality of the lives behind the headlines and statistics called 'child abuse'. Julia will never tire of fighting the battle of prevention and cure and never forget the precious legacy we leave our children through care, comfort and respect. This book is a compelling read for all those who know the problem, doubt the problem or would rather ignore the problem."

Attorney Richard Ducote has appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, 60 Minutes, CNN and many other national shows. He is widely known and has received coveted awards for his work with child abuse.

Gail Goodman, Ph.D.
Gail Goodman, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Psychology, University of California, Davis, writes:
"In my research I deal with traumatized children who must appear as witnesses, often in the same courtroom as their perpetrators. Julia Carroll's art therapy book presents tangible methodologies of how to move through and overcome past pain and suffering. Her book offers many messages of positive psychology, hope and encouragement.
