An exploration into the concept and phenomenon of shame within the context of child sexual abuse: an existential-dialogical perspective of social work within the settings of a Norwegian incest centre
MetadataShow full item record
The present study is an exploration into the concept and phenomenon of shame within the context of sexual abuse and within the settings of a Norwegian Incest Centre. The problem of interest which I have chosen in this study is how shame is used as a concept and how it appears as a phenomenon at the Incest Centre in Vestfold. This is an institution which has struggled for the recognition of sexually abused children since 1988. The Centre is founded and led by a professional social worker who endorses the use of social work practice among victims of child sexual abuse and their relatives. Howsocial work is advocated in this institution is of interest in this exploration.
