about

This program addresses the rapidly increasing awareness of female domestic violence and need for quality treatment services. Developed and field-tested for over twenty-five years among military and civilian populations, this program integrates contemporary interventions and client-centered guidelines to treat domestic violence offenders—who happen to be female. Based on the acclaimed domestic violence treatment program STOP Domestic Violence, which focused on male domestic violence offenders, this book recognizes what is now being widely accepted, abuse is abuse regardless of gender, and must be treated.

These worksheets and exercises, fully integrated with the main book, keep group members actively engaged in overcoming their abusive behaviors. Packaged as loose-leaf sheets, they can be added, removed, or rearranged to suit the needs of any leader administering the program.

Worksheets are arranged by sessions which help abusers understand why what they are doing is abuse, and how to overcome what drives them to do so. The abusers are held accountable for their actions rather than blame the victims or various substances. Each session comes with clearly labeled questions for the abusers to answer in the session and as homework, providing structure for recovery both within the sessions and at home.
