Safeguards and the therapeutic window. A group treatment strategy for adult incest survivors.

Abstract

A group treatment model for adult incest survivors is presented. It has been designed to take into account the traumatic nature and sequelae of abuse experiences. Based on the Stress Response Syndrome, the model emphasizes use of a "therapeutic window" as a clinical guide and includes protective interventions, clinical timing issues, and prominent themes relevant to these survivors.
