Overview

Create compelling women's groups that deal effectively with domestic abuse Journey Beyond Abuse and its accompanying participant's journal, Moving Beyond Abuse, give you complete tools for facilitating a powerful group with life-changing results. Used together, these unique books can help you create a program where women increase their understanding of the dynamics of abuse, feel less alone and isolated, feel empowered to make positive choices, and have a greater awareness to channels of safety. Adapt this flexible program to your group's specific needs No two groups are the same. Journey Beyond Abuse gives you twenty-one group sessions, which you can combine to create groups of differing length and focus.

You'll get detailed instructions on how to facilitate each session including its goals, format, activities, and important issues that the session raises for both the participants and facilitators. This practical guide also includes an overview of the history, philosophy, and goals of this model and how to best use the program; information and tips on how to handle 28 special issues such as child care, safety and protection, and substance abuse; facilitation techniques, cofacilitation, intake and individual counseling, and recommended policies and procedures; useful appendices including reproducible forms such as a women's domestic abuse summary sheet, her goals and strengths, self-care plan; and much more.
