Abused women and survivor therapy : a practical guide for the psychotherapist by Lenore E Walker( Book )

22 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Walker posits that the use of traditional psychotherapies for trauma victims has not produced the type of treatment that abused women have found to be truly helpful and that modifications in traditional practice are necessary in order for clinicians to work effectively with abuse victims. These modifications must take into account the impact of the specific form of trauma involved as well as the individual's unique psychological response to the world and the impact of traditional socialization of women and men. /// The author claims that abuse is widespread and that violence against women occurs in all demographic groups. Her approach is strongly informed by a feminist, participatory perspective that emphasizes reempowerment and the client's role in helping to determine the course of therapy. She examines the effects of gender, race, ethnicity, culture, and sexual orientation as part of the larger context surrounding the reality of violence against women in society.

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Our Broken Family Court System is a collection of transcripts from the 2012 conference conducted by the Cummings Foundation, led by Dr. Nicholas Cummings. The conference tackles the problems within a disjointed and haphazard family court system, addressing a broken organization that often victimizes the innocent parties unfortunate enough to be involved. Anchored by the noteworthy film, No Way Out But One, produced by the prize-winning documentary director Garland Waller, and supported by a group of knowledgeable judges, lawyers, psychologists, and other authorities, this book addresses the inherent limitations and biases that are present in the current family court structure. Frustrated by the underhanded opposition of the entrenched interests, the speakers of this conference address the lack of understanding in family court cases, especially the ones involving childhood development, physical and mental abuse, as well as the outdated assumptions as to 'what is best for the child.' The speakers in this book identify weaknesses and contradictions in the current system and offer viable solutions that reflect the most recent understanding of family dynamics and childhood psychology. Our Broken Family Court System is a comprehensive analysis of a jumbled and confusing legal process that rarely takes into account the needs of the human psyche"--Page 4 of cover
