DAMASIO, Bruno Figueiredo; HABIGZANG, Luísa Fernanda; FREITAS, Clarissa Pinto Pizarro de  and  KOLLER, Sílvia Helena. Process evaluation of a social technology of professional training for psychologists handling cases of sexual violence. Contextos Clínic [online]. 2014, vol.7, n.2, pp. 207-219. ISSN 1983-3482.

In this study the process of a social technology of professional training in cognitive-behavioral group therapy offered to psychologists who handle cases of sexual abuse was evaluated. The sample was composed of 28 psychologists from 19 municipalities in Rio Grande do Sul State, Brazil. The participants responded a bio-social-demographic questionnaire and evaluative protocols about the training program. The results demonstrated a high level of satisfaction with the program. Suggestions and additional comments as well as opinions about the most positive and negative aspects of the training program offered subsidies to the qualification of future editions of the same training program. We expect that the results presented in this paper encourage the development of new professional training programs dedicated to the sexual abuse issue.
