An innovative technique of video replay for reempowering an incest survivor and protecting the integrity of the family
An innovative technique of video replay for reempowering an incest survivor and protecting the integrity of the familyRésumé :
Reports on the combined individual and family therapy of a 17-yr-old survivor of incest following the incarceration of her father and her removal from home. After 1 yr of individual therapy, family therapy was initiated including the perpetrator-father who was released from jail for the sessions. The aims of therapy included protecting the integrity of the family and reinstating the victim's position in the family if possible. Therapeutic tools which were most relevant in promoting these changes are detailed with specific emphasis on an innovative use of video which served both to protect the youngster, reempower her, and reengage the family with her. The dilemma of voluntary vs legally mandated therapy in the management of resistance is closely examined.
