Participating in a group makes it clear that CSA is a social phenomenon that affects lots of people--not a disease that you need a doctor to treat in a private consulting room. For me, the main drawback was the open group, where people dropped in and out from session to session. There was a core of "regulars," but the changing roster kept the atmosphere very close to square one.

This sounds exactly backwards to me. I think an individual therapist can best determine whether you'd benefit from a group.
