It is not your fault – family counsellors work with sexually abused children and youth.

It is not your fault – family counsellors work with sexually abused children and youth.

Sexual abuse is a global phenomenon, occurring at every level of society. Previous studies show that victims often tell their stories about sexual abuse in a counselling setting. Family counsellors were chosen as respondents due to the fact that they work with different types of treatment and counselling and therefore they are most likely to meet victims of sexual abuse in their work. The aim of this study was to get descriptions of family counsellors work and descriptions of their work methods in the meeting with children and youth that have been sexually abused. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with six family counsellors in three different municipalities. The result of this study shows that the work of family counsellors is highly complex requiring high standards where collegial support and supervision is paramount for their work and motivation. Furthermore, the result shows that there is a need for specialised education about sexual abuse, however the most reliable knowledge about work methods in these cases comes from field experiences. The result also implies further studies are needed. (Less)
