Abstract:

This book describes a women-centred group counseling program to help women interpret their relationship in valuable new ways. The book describes how women react to partner abuse, how they and their abusive partners see the relationship, and outlines ways of changing the abuse dynamic. There is nothing simple about the conflicting emotions and practical challenges of living with an abusive man, and there is seldom a quick or easy solution. The book also shows family, friends, and professionals that what abused women need most is support people who appreciate how difficult their situation is, and can hang in with them during the long run. Women’s stories are used throughout both to illustrate the practical and theoretical issues, and to help women learn from the experiences of women. The book also includes exercises from the authors’ counseling program.
