Group Treatment for Adolescent Girls in Incestuous Families.
A program for treating the incestuous family is presented which concentrates on group treatment for female adolescent incest victims between the ages of 12 and 17. Two groups which have met weekly for one year are described in terms of the girls' progress. Suggestions are offered to insure treatment success, including: (1) the ideal time for referral to treatment; (2) a flexible group structure; and (3) group facilitation by both a male and female therapist to stimulate an integrated family. Behavioral stages and the feelings experienced during group treatment are described, with an emphasis on the primary curative components as the emotional closeness and the sense of identification generated by a warm and supportive setting.
