Group Therapy for Abused and Neglected Youth: Therapeutic and Child Advocacy Challenges
Wanlass, Janine; Moreno, J. Kelly; Thomson, Hannah M.
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v31 n4 p311-326 Dec 2006
Although group therapy for abused and neglected youth is a viable and efficacious treatment option, facilitation is challenging. Group leaders must contain intense affect, manage multiple transferences, and advocate for their clients within the larger social welfare system. Using a case study of a group for sexually abused girls, this paper explores some of these issues and discusses ways in which therapists recognize and deal with the dual challenge of advocating for and treating children.
