The purpose of this applied project is to guide professional helpers in offering services to adolescent females who have experienced sexual coercion. This project contains a review of relevant literature as well as a description of and instructions for implementation of a therapeutic group program. Literature pertinent to sexual coercion and consent, adolescent development, effective and ineffective coping, and group and expressive arts therapy is summarized and synthesized. Following this, the literature review process and group program creation are described, an overview of the group program is offered, and project strengths, limitations, and future research directions are discussed. This project culminates with an appendix that contains a group program manual instructing therapists on how to implement an expressive arts therapy group with adolescent females who have experienced sexual coercion.
