For a group facilitator, this is a juggling act. Making sure everyone can share if they desire is imperative. The real trick is knowing when too much is too much, as well as knowing when someone wants to talk, yet doesn’t know how to start. Cueing clients in a group setting can be an effective strategy for a clinician in a group setting. In a setting where sexual abuse/assault are being discussed drawing out individuals to respond can be challenging. The second pitfall that can occur in a group such as a sexual assault group is clients ganging up on another client (Thomas & Caplan, 1999). This can occur so quickly and can damage the therapeutic process so quickly. It is the clinician responsibility to allow the free flow of conversation as well as keeping it a safe environment for each other to exchange some very heavy emotions. Sexual abuse/assault is a heavy topic to discuss. There will be triggers being set off among the group
members, this is unavoidable. Yet, if the clinician knows how to redirect a group or an individual it can be avoided. References Thomas, H., & Caplan, T. (1999).

As stated earlier, many join a group in order to increase their social support network and seek to develop a support system around them who can understand the issues and problems that they are going though. For sexual assault survivors to begin the healing and recovery process, it is vital that they feel that the environment in which they are in is safe and trustworthy. This means that participants in a group need to be able to rely on consistency and clear guidelines. Simply put, they need to know what to expect from the group facilitator, the group process, and from themselves. Reply Quote Message Read Mark as Unread Message Not Flagged Set Flag 1 month ago
