Chronister, Krista M.; Davidson, M. Meghan
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v35 n2 p115-123 Jun 2010
Advancing Career Counseling and Employment Support for Survivors (ACCESS; Chronister, 2006) is a group intervention designed to foster the career development of women who have experienced intimate partner violence. The ACCESS curriculum is based on theory and research from multiple disciplines including intimate partner violence, counseling, and vocational psychology. The purpose of ACCESS is to contribute to distributive justice for survivors by restoring vocational and economic opportunities that have been diminished by abusive partners and oppressive social structures. This article focuses on group processes used to facilitate ACCESS activities and promote justice by fostering survivors' mental health and vocational development.
