ESFT Stage III: Sexual Abuse in a Family Context

November 30 @ 1:15 pm - 4:30 pm


This workshop first provides a comprehensive overview of sexual abuse including: the definition, prevalence and demographics of both child victims and offenders. A model of assessment is then described covering abuse level, family context, depth of the trauma, and warning signs in children, adolescents and families. Focus is then given to how the Ecosystemic Structural Family Therapy model treats sexual abuse in the family. Interventions are specified within each of ESFT’s four stages.

Educational Objectives:

1) Identify at least two symptoms of sexual abuse.

2) Clarify how family transactions either help or hinder coping.

3) Describe at least two interventions used with both incest survivors and adolescent offenders.
