Abstract

The literature on group therapies for women with histories of childhood sexual abuse has focused on outpatient treatments. A model of group treatment for inpatients and partial hospital patients is described here. 'Women's Safety in Recovery' is a first-stage trauma recovery group that promotes mastery of current life stressors and prevents regression through the use of psychoeducation about abuse effects, the practice of problem-solving skills, and supportive, topic-focused discussion. The group is structured in three one-week modules that patients can begin or leave at any time.
