Synopsis

Group Work with Sexually Abused Children A Practitioner's Guide by Lynn Grotsky, Dr Carel Camerer, Dr Lynn Damiano

`This is a well-written and nicely organized book that can be both a helpful handbook for clinicians just starting to do group treatment for young victims of sexual abuse as well as a terrific resource for useful group treatment activities for the more experienced clinicians. It addresses important issues in the treatment of sexual abuse and offers suggestions and hints when using different activities, as well as discussing potential problems for each activity. The book is full of examples taken from actual groups and includes materials to use for both support and therapy groups for boys and girls, ages four to eighteen. As someone who has provided group treatment for many years, I found this to be a comprehensive book that successfully incorporates treatment issues for both children and their parents with great new and practical ideas for group treatment' - Kerry J Todd, MSW Children's Response Center, Bellevue, Washington This easy-to-follow manual presents techniques for working with groups of children who have been sexually abused. It begins with an overview of the theory and literature of group therapy with children and then offers seven sections on psycho-social skill-building techniques: trust-building; self-esteem, identifying and expressing feelings; healing the inner child, relationships; boundary setting, and prevention skills.
