dc.description.abstract The present study investigated the treatment availability of male incest victims in Kansas community mental health centers. Directors in Adult Outpatient and Children Services were asked to complete and return a survey questioning treatment availability for victims of incest. The return rates for the adult and children surveys were 21 out of 30 (70%) and 22 out of 30 (73%) respectively. An interaction was found between age and gender in treatment availability. The results of the study indicate that a greater percentage of females are treated at mental health centers than males, and, specifically a greater percentage of females are treated for incest than males in this population. No differences were found in screening for incest on intake. However, significantly more mental health centers were found to provide females rather than males with separate specific treatment programs for incest and more sexually abused females received treatment than did sexually abused males. Center directors responded that specific group treatment programs for victims of incest were equally available. en_US
