Abstract (Summary)

This curriculum was created to assist master level social workers (MSW), Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW), Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT), and psychologist in working with female survivors of childhood sexual abuse. The purpose of this curriculum is to provide an evidence based guide for skills specific to building and maintaining more fulfilling and productive friendships and romantic relationships. Previous curricula targeting this population have consisted mainly of symptomological aspects associated with survivors of childhood sexual abuse, such as affect regulation, depression, anger, and etcetera. This current curriculum focuses on beliefs and skills that might be lacking in this population due to the abuse and provide these women with the tools to strengthen their skills important to healthy relationships. No other curriculum has been found to target the skills associated with healthy relationships for this population.
