Waldrop, Angela E.; de Arellano, Michael A.
Cognitive and Behavioral Practice, v11 n4 p343-352 Aut 2004
The present case study illustrates a modified version of a manualized cognitive behavioral treatment for physical abuse-related symptoms (Swenson, 1996; Swenson & Brown, 1999). The case presented in this article illustrates the adaptation of a group intervention for physically abused 8- to 12-year-olds for use with a 5-year-old African American boy who had experienced chronic, severe physical and emotional abuse by his father. The course of treatment and treatment outcome are described and challenges in treatment are addressed.
