Alexander, Helen; Kempe, Ruth S.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v6 n3 p329-34 1982
Lay therapists working with abusive parents augment the existing treatment and provide support and acceptance to the parent. They may also help by listening, reflecting the reality of the situation, and providing concrete assistance such as transportation. Careful selection, training, and monitoring of lay therapists are essential. (CL)
