Working With Sexually Abused Children
Analysis of qualitative interviews with ten female therapists who were currently working with sexually abused children resulted in two major themes. The themes included the impact of working with sexually abused children on the therapist's personal and professional life and coping with stresses associated with working with sexually abused children. The major finding in study was the relationship between the therapists' ability to work effectively with abused children and having strong personal and professional support networks, therapist psychotherapy, colleague group interactions, debriefing/supervision sessions, and increased training. These themes are explored in depth, recommendations and implications for therapists in this field are provided.
