COSTA, Liana Fortunato; PENSO, Maria Aparecida e ALMEIDA, Tânia Mara Campos de. The multifamiliar group as a method of intervention in situations of child sexual abuse. Psicol. USP [online]. 2005, vol.16, n.4, pp. 121-146. ISSN 1678-5177.
We present in this text our proposal for a psycosocial intervention in families in which sexual abuse occurred involving children and/or teenagers, as from an adaptation of a model of Multifamiliar Group for this type of context. The general objective of this project aims at deepening and increasing the knowledge in the area of methodology of Multifamiliar Group directed to the clinical context, in a modality of special attendance which occurs as from judiciary demand. We still intend to point out the methodological-theoretical limits and the possibilities of working in Multifamiliar Group with the intrafamiliar violence problem, more specifically with sexual abuse involving children and their parents. Children, by means of various expositive and expressive strategies, can indicate how they wish and need to be cared for in their everyday life. On the part of adults, there occurs a better comprehension of their duties in relation to the cares with their own children and the others of the community.
