Group Treatment for Adult Survivors of Abuse

Group Treatment for Adult Survivors of Abuse
A Manual for Practitioners

July 1996 | 216 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The long-term effects of child abuse are addressed holistically in this positive volume, which provides a tested treatment model that has been successful in assisting many adult survivors to neutralize or reverse the traumatic effects of early abuse.

The authors provide case studies to demonstrate the cumulative, debilitating and long-term effects of the abuse experience, and the value of accessible group therapy in conjunction with an individual treatment programme. Webb and Leehan also discuss the advantages and complications of group treatment for this particular client population, suggest strategies for management and containment, and include an important chapter on therapist self-care.
