A Psycho-Educational Group For Women Who Have Experienced

16.8% of females experience CSA
Indicators of risk include: gender, disability,
and single-parent households
CSA may lead to mental health problems
This author has learned that the issue of CSA
is a life altering experience that affects women
from all walks of life. Current and relevant
literature is readily available on this subject.
Literature supports the need for a group of this
type and confirms that this would have a
positive impact on the services provided by
social workers (Christiansen & Elklit, 2008).
By providing this service at the host agency,
the proposed project has the potential of
reaching women who may not otherwise be
able to seek a service of this type.
