Abstract

This article presents an alternative model of intervention to deal with cases of female sexual abuse. The model is predicated on the principle that Western models of intervention, if applied in collective, non-Western societies, could lead to the exclusion of the victim from normal social participation. It offers features designed to ensure the safety and welfare of the victim and to preclude her exclusion from future normal social participation. A detailed description of the model is presented along with the theoretical assumptions on which it was constructed.
