Abstract:
This study investigated the effect of group counseling on the self-concept of women who were sexually abused as children. The Tennessee Self-Concept Scale was administered to two groups of women, aged 19-60, at a sexual abuse treatment center in a major Southwestern city. A static-group comparison model was followed, with a pretreatment group (N = 11) compared to a group (N = 10) that had been in treatment for 12 months or more. Scores were analyzed by a t-test to determine whether any significant differences existed between scores. The True/False Ratio was the only score that showed significant variance. Moral-Ethical and Net Conflict scores also tended toward significance. Most TSCS scores for both groups were generally in the below-average range compared to the norm groups, with pretreatment group scores lower. Possible reasons for results were discussed, along with ramifications for the treatment center.
