dc.description.abstract In this investigation an attempt was made to show from the literature, and with an empirical study, that a system- theoretical orientated approach could be therapeutically effective in the management of the incest victim. The literature focuses mainly on three therapeutic methods: family therapy, individual therapy and group therapy. Various empirical investigations point out the inadequacy of these. Incest has a significant short and long-term effect on the personality development of the victim. This investigation showed that an individual approach would be inadequate if factors which contribute to maintaining the victim's symptoms, and are not reconstructed together with the individual management of the symptoms, are present in the system. A family system approach also appeared to be inadequate as the victim is not sufficiently acknowledged as individual in a system, and the particular needs and problems are not treated accordingly. This implies that the victim s personality and development problems could be remedied if both the victim s dysfunctional behavioural responses, and the systems which maintain the dysfunctional behaviour, are restructured. Therefore, the specific purposes of this study are two-fold, namely to establish a theoretic goal which gives a thorough explanation of incest from a system-theoretical outline, and to establish a system-theoretical orientated management strategy which manages an incest victim from a general perspective. On the grounds of the exploratory nature of this study, the recommendations resulting from it are aimed at improving the therapeutic effectiveness of treatment strategies regarding victims of incest. en
