Written by John J. Liptak, Ed.D and Ester Leutenberg. Domestic abuse is very complex and can take many different forms: physical, sexual, psychological, emotional, and verbal. The five sections of the workbook help participants learn skills for recognizing and dealing with abusive relationships.
Over the last century many different workbooks, workshops and self-help systems have been designed to help people explore ways of overcoming abusive relationships. In the past twenty years, many research studies have focused on the value of self-reflection and journaling as a way of exploring personal characteristics, identifying ineffective behaviors, and examining thoughts and feelings that lead to these ineffective behaviors. This book is unique in that it combines two powerful psychological tools designed to enhance domestic violence coping skills: self-assessment and journaling.
