Family Sexual Abuse Training Program.
Larson, Noel Ruth
This report describes various aspects of an inservice training program for human service professionals concerned with family sexual abuse. Covered in the report are the content, objectives and phases of the training program, demographic information on the trainees, and a description of the types of evaluation conducted. The overall purpose of the training program was to enable professionals to skillfully intervene with families characterized by sexual abuse, to provide therapy for family members, and to develop additional resources in their own communities. The training content included child and adolescent psychosexual development, family systems theory, the impact of family sexual abuse on child development and the family system, addiction theory, personal attitude awareness, family member roles in incest, family intervention strategies, marital therapy, community development and program coordination, and sex therapy. The training involved three phases extending over a year's time. These phases focused on theory, process supervision, and community-based intervention. Sixty professionals from throughout the state of Minnesota participated in the training program. Evaluation was designed to help make adjustments in the program on a daily basis, to make the program accountable to the funding agency, and to provide a data base for a dissertation. (SS)
