Resumé

Med udgangspunkt i subjektteoretisk tilgang og et empirisk projekt diskuteres nogle aspekter ved støtte i grupper og dens særlige betydninger for kvinder, der har været udsat for seksualiserede overgreb som voldtægt og voldtægtsforsøg. Hvilke aspekter er til hjælp og hvilke kan være problematiske? Hvad kan vi lære af arbejdet med grupper. Diskussionen omhandler herunder spørgsmål  som den sexualiserede tvangs mulige betydninger, offeridentitet, professionelles privilegere position,  køn og gruppedeltagelse.
