dc.description.abstract The effectiveness of Cognitive Analytic Therapy delivered in groups has been under researched considering the popularity of the approach. This study sought to investigate the effectiveness of 24-sessions of group Cognitive Analytic Therapy (GCAT) delivered in routine practice for female survivors of childhood sexual abuse (CSA). In a longitudinal cohort design, N=157 patients were treated with 24-sessions of GCAT. Validated outcome measures were administered at assessment, pre and post-GCAT. This enabled rates of reliable and clinically significant change to be compared between wait-time and active group treatment. The uncontrolled treatment effect size was then benchmarked against outcomes from matched studies. On the primary outcome measure, GCAT facilitated a moderate effect size of 0.34 with 11% of patients completing treatment meeting ‘recovery criteria’ The drop-out rate was 19%. Significant improvements in interpersonal functioning, anxiety and wellbeing occurred during GCAT in comparison to wait-time on secondary outcome measures. GCAT appears a promising intervention for adult female CSA survivors, with further controlled evaluation indicated. (Author Abstract) en_US
