Our Women's Abuse Recovery counseling group focuses on providing support to women who are either currently in or have been in an abusive relationship. Group members work towards recovery by learning about various forms of abuse and controlling behaviors and beliefs, while learning how to set clear boundaries, develop effective communication skills, and practice positive self-care. The group offers support for day-to-day living in addition to examining the challenges of relationships.

WOMEN'S ABUSE GROUPS
Our Women's Abuse Intervention Groups allow for women to understand the root of their anger, and how to better control it. The causes of women's abusive behavior tend to be more complicated and somewhat different than the common causes of men's abuse. Many women arrested for domestic violence are 'secondary aggressors.' While abusive, it is within the larger context of more serious and on-going abuse from their partner. For this reason, we offer two unique specialized women's abuse intervention programs to reach each population effectively.
Our women's anger program has a similar curriculum to that of the men's program, however, there is a greater focus on victimization issues common among women, such as managing trauma, assertiveness, and boundary setting. These groups focus on providing support to women who are either currently in or have been in an abusive relationship.
