Counteracting mother-blaming among child sexual abuse service providers: An experiential workshop
Journal of Feminist Family Therapy | Published : 1994
This paper addresses the need for educators in the helping professions to take a proactive stance to counter mother-blaming particularly in the context of child sexual abuse. Attention is given to the responsibility of the offender for the abuse and his central role in structuring the relationship between mothers and their children when sexual abuse occurs. An outline is given of a workshop designed to specifically address these issues. © 1994 by The Haworth Press, Inc.
