Abstract

A three phase group treatment program for women who were sexually abused as children was examined for outcome effectiveness. Standardized evaluation questionnaires were utilized to measure change in self-esteem, locus of control, and level of internalized shame at the end of phases I and II. An informal evaluation discussion was used to determine subject satisfaction and content at the end of phase III. -- Results indicate a significant positive change in self-esteem, locus of control, and level of internalized shame after phase I, and a further significant positive change in self-esteem for six of the eight subjects after phase II. All subjects reported feeling more content, more in control of life experiences, and less shameful at the end of phase III.
