About this item

Wexler, a clinical psychologist, provides a manual and workbook that shows therapists, social workers, and other counselors how to provide group treatment for women who abuse, to help them explore the roles and management of trauma, emotional dysregulation, self-esteem deficits, and the history of personal victimization. The manual explains background on female intimate partner violence, clinical and group guidelines, the rules of engagement, stages of change and motivational interviewing, competence, and pacing and leading, as well as information on the program. It presents orientation materials and a guide to each of the 26 sessions. It includes many of the same sessions as the STOP (skills, techniques, options, and plans) program for men, with changes in pronouns, vignettes, and examples, and new material for issues relevant to women, such as victimization, shame, grief and loss, parenting, jealousy, and gender roles, as well as guidelines for a substance abuse focus. The workbook contains accompanying handouts and homework for participants. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
