dc.description.abstract The present study explores how trauma clients experience participation in an inclusive stabilization group approach. Upon completion of treatment, all 31 clients from six stabilization groups for women were invited to participate in a qualitative post-therapy interview study. Thirteen clients consented to participate. All interviews were carried out by a team of three health-care workers shortly after completion of treatment. Five main themes were identified: Dreading and Hoping; Preparing for Participation; Tuning in and Staying Put; Meeting Other Trauma Survivors; Acquiring a Stabilizing Ballast; and Being Receptive to Change. Participating in the stabilization group was experienced as demanding, while also providing new and helpful experiences. Participants emphasized the importance of being receptive to help in order to benefit from treatment. (Author Abstract) en_US
