The prevalence of childhood sexual abuse among deaf people has not been widely reported. Moreover, documented effective treatment approaches with this population is very limited to traditional forms of individual psychotherapy treatment. The purpose of this study was to explore the feasibility and challenges of implementing a mixed gender group psychotherapy program with deaf survivors of sexual abuse in childhood. Two, year long mixed-gender groups provide the case material to discuss issues related to the setting up of such a group as well as the effectiveness of treatment. Anecdotal findings from the two groups are reported.
