This chapter describes and illustrates through case example the use of cognitive-behavior group treatment with non-offending parents (typically mothers) whose preschool children have been sexually abused. The empirical evidence for cognitive-behavioral treatment with sexual abuse victims and their families is presented, followed by a rationale for the use of a group modality with this population. Techniques are targeted toward decreasing maternal stress and improving coping; building maternal support; and providing information on sexual abuse dynamics and how to handle symptoms in children.

Keywords:   cognitive-behavioral therapy, sexual abuse, non-offending parent, group treatment, maternal support
