Pattern Changing for Abused Women
An Educational Program
- Marilyn Shear Goodman - Women's Resource Center of South County, Wakefield
- Beth Creager Fallon - Women's Resource Center of South County, Wakefield
Educational rather than therapeutic, the programme includes sessions on family roles, boundaries, feelings and assertiveness skills. It is designed to enable abused women to: understand the problem and reality of abuse for the entire family; set realistic goals; become aware of lifelong patterns which can change; and learn techniques for developing new patterns of their own choosing.
