Empowering Abused Women: Multi-Cultural Counseling Techniques.
Hardin, Ann; Sukola, Kelly Renae
In the mid 1980's some of the counselors on Guam began to explore oppressive family patterns. This resulted in major legislative, child welfare, and law enforcement changes, as well as a quest for treatment strategies that would meet the needs of this unique multi-cultural population. This paper discusses the use of experiential, culture-sensitive techniques to help women experiencing partner abuse. Themes are used as treatment strategies for education and recovery group counseling of abused women and include personal safety, victim blaming, growing up females, and denial. (JDM)
