All my relations, a native treatment approach for children of sexual abuse
The practicum describes one application of an Aboriginal Treatment approach to working with Native children who have been sexually abused. Through a combination of non-directive play therapy and extensive parental involvement in an Aboriginal setting, 6 children in 5 separate families participated in this practicum. Native social work practice was outlined in a broad manner, and modifications of these practises were utilized with the families over a six month treatment span. The highlights and outcomes of the practicum are discussed along with some recommendations for further work on this area.
