Synopsis:

The accounts of group work are fascinating. . . . The authors' experience over many years is well organized and presented, and the level of detail given enables the real dilemmas and problems presented by this work to be dealt with. The role of education concerning the effects of abuse in order to enable participants to better understand their own reactions is helpfully explained, and is relevant in dealing with victimization generally. . . . This is a book that raises important issues for practitioners in this field. --Anne Viney in Criminal Behavior and Mental Health As a widely used and accepted form of intervention, group therapy has been successfully applied to a variety of populations.
