A Therapist’s Guide to Growing Free: A Manual for Survivors of Domestic Violence

A Therapist’s Guide to Growing Free: A Manual for Survivors of Domestic Violence

Help victims and survivors break the cycle of abuse!

Trying to get victims and survivors of domestic abuse to recognize their own victimization can be a frustrating experience. They often become so frightened, isolated, and self-doubting that they make excuses for the abuser. Combining psychological insight with practical safety information, this book helps therapists guide their clients into understanding–and ending–the vicious cycle of wooing, tension, violence, and remorse.

A Therapist’s Guide to Growing Free provides a comprehensive outline of the issues, tasks, and goals involved in the treatment of victims and survivors. Its chapter-by-chapter breakdown of how violent relationships function and how to end them safely can help you guide a traumatized woman through her therapeutic journey.

The guide’s companion volume, Growing Free: A Manual for Survivors of Domestic Violence is the perfect handout for clients in individual therapy, group therapy, and battered women’s shelters. Reading stories like their own may provide the shock of recognition they need to be able to understand–and eventually to end–the cycle of violence that characterizes all levels of domestic abuse. It outlines a series of steps they can take to ensure their emotional and physical safety. Its stories of women in abusive relationships and discussions of the cycle of abuse are direct and easy to read without ever being condescending.

A Therapist’s Guide to Growing Free provides the insight and therapeutic models needed for effective intervention and treatment, including:

  • psychological effects and belief systems of victims and survivors
  • discussions and illustrations of the cycle of violence
  • the effects of domestic violence on children and adolescents
  • the therapeutic challenges of couple/conjoint therapy
  • handling crisis intervention
  • suggestions for conducting group and therapeutic therapy for victim and batterer
A Therapist’s Guide to Growing Free and its companion volume provide both therapists and clients with a practical, action-oriented approach to the problem of domestic violence. It is ideal training and reference material for counselors at women’s shelters, emergency room personnel, law-enforcement officers, and other professionals involved in the rescue, support, defense, and treatment of victims and survivors.

Your Degrees Won’t Keep You Warm at Night: The Very Smart Brothas Guide to Dating, Mating, and Fighting Crime

Your Degrees Won’t Keep You Warm at Night: The Very Smart Brothas Guide to Dating, Mating, and Fighting Crime

Witty, crass, insightful, and uproarious, The Champ and Panama Jackson of VerySmartBrothas.com combine a unique blend of past experiences, tongue-in-cheek observations, timely pop-culture references, and outlandish analogies to create their occasionally exasperating but always entertaining relationship expertise. And, whether they’re addressing the importance of Facebook chivalry, listing signs that he’s a “pretend playa,” outing the “Diva Dudes,” or outlining why a working sense of humor is so critical when recording a personal sex tape, Your Degrees Won’t Keep You Warm at Night is the definitive guide for the contemporary dater.

From Helena Andrews (Author of “Bitch Is the New Black”)

“Written by Damon “the Champ” Young and Panama Jackson, the two “very smart brothas” behind the blog of the same name, Your Degrees isn’t the latest literary money pit for pitiful women looking to “find, keep and understand a man.” Instead, the book, which reads more like a “best of” blog series (in a good way), is a case study in new-millennium mating for like-minded folk who live near a metro. The book is playful without being patronizing.”

From award-winning essayist and media personality Jamilah Lemieux

“The VSBs do take a few stances that I don’t agree with; for example, The Champ is very cynical about platonic friendships between men and women (though he mentions having homegirls a few times in the book) and both of them are a bit old-school about the idea of a woman approaching a man. However, I’ve found a lot of things that I connect with throughout the book and the run of the site (I predict the term “Diva Dudes” to become part of the official educated Negro lexicon within the year) and reading their work feels like talking to a few of my snarky, brilliant homeboys more than anything else.”

Pandora’s Box – A Man’s Guide To The Female Mind – Get INSIDE HER MIND, Know Her Better Than She Knows Herself!

Pandora’s Box – A Man’s Guide To The Female Mind – Get INSIDE HER MIND, Know Her Better Than She Knows Herself!

Vin DiCarlo has discovered how to “profile” women into 8 types…

Based on each “profile”, he has a custom way of reading her mind and
attracting her…

He calls it “Pandora’s Box“… and it’s the HOTTEST new system for picking up women…

Do you like chocolate ice cream, or vanilla? Maybe you like a different flavor…
Maybe strawberry or butterscotch… What does this have to do with meeting
women? EVERYTHING!

You see, all women are different, because no two people are the same. Yes, we
have the same instincts and the same sexual desires but our personal preferences
are as different as grains of sand in the desert. (That’s why the saying goes that
people are as unique as snowflakes)

All women don’t like the same food, they don’t like the same clothes… They don’t
even like the same COLOR. So how can all women be interested in the same thing
from a man? Think about it Some women like funny men. Some women like cocky
men. Other women like gothic men, jocky men or men of a certain race, age or
financial status.

So approaching women with the same techniques for starting conversation, or even
the same techniques when it comes to the bedroom is a losing bet… But it’s been our
best guess to date! It’s like playing the roulette wheel at the casino, and only placing
your chips on either red or black.

Yeah, you’ll win 50% of the time, and maybe you’ll get her a little attracted to you…
But it’s better than playing the numbers in the middle where your chances of success
are slim and you’re likely to lose your shirt. It’s not the best way to play the game,

however, it’s the SAFEST way. With the skills you have know, it’s the EASIEST way to win.

What if there was a BETTER way?

What if you could confidently bet all of your chips on a number in the middle? You’d win
every time and you’d make a KILLING in profits. It’s the same way with women: When
you know exactly what she likes; the deepest, darkest thoughts she thinks; and when
you know what she secretly CRAVES from men, you can match her dating and sexual
needs perfectly.

You’ll be the guy she’s been looking for. You’ll appear like a mind reader. You’ll seem like
you know her better than she knows herself. Even if you just met her a few minutes ago.

Until now, you couldn’t get this information about her unless you stole her diary and read it.
But recent insights into Female Psychology have cracked her mind right open, and you can
peek into the Pandora’s Box to see her secret thoughts and read the contents. For example:

Did you know that there are two ways women like to be approached? 50% of women respond
well to a compliment while the other 50% of women wouldn’t DREAM of falling for a line like that.
If the beautiful woman you just met likes the compliment you gave her, she’ll start to connect
with you and find her attractive.

If she doesn’t vibe with your line You’re dead where you stand. You won’t get another chance
to win her heart, and she’ll go back to whatever she was doing.

You can have THAT GIRL! You can save that conversation! With the new Pandora’s Box Techniques
Vin DiCarlo discovered, you’ll know whether she’s a compliment girl or not before you ever
approach her. (They’re called Testers and Investors… And the strategies to meet each type are potent and powerful)

Don’t miss out, though… Because she’s eventually going to meet a guy who knows the Pandora’s Box system and wins her over.

The Man’s Guide To The Perfect Date: Fun, Romantic And Creative Date Planning Ideas To Make Your Date The Best Ever

The Man’s Guide To The Perfect Date: Fun, Romantic And Creative Date Planning Ideas To Make Your Date The Best Ever

Have you ever been able to blow her mind on the first date, to a point where she’s reeling from the enjoyment and ecstasy of the night you just gave her?

Have you ever gone home, after a date, knowing for a fact that she will be thinking, wanting, and even dreaming about seeing you again?

If you answered “No” to the above questions, you are not alone. In fact, most guys have had the exact opposite of the above experiences during (and after) a first date…

There’s nothing worse than going home after a date, wondering if the girl will ever want to see you again… or if she will even answer the phone when you call her the next day… or wondering if this will be like most first dates where all your effort and hard work would once again go to waste – with nothing to show for it… not even a goodnight kiss…

Let’s face it… if she doesn’t at least have an above average date with you, you would be lucky to even get a second date with her.

And, if she has a bad date with you, you can pretty much guarantee that you will never see her again. She may not even answer your phone calls, text messages, or emails.

The truth is, most guys can be so ‘average’ and boring during the first date, that the girl just wants to go home and be alone for the rest of the night… OR… she is tempted to call some other guy, who can give her the thrill and passion that she wants… (while you end up going home alone.)

The worst part is, she will never tell you WHY it didn’t work out, or what you did wrong to mess the date up – even if you asked her point blank.

And, you would just have to continue ‘guessing’ as to what went wrong… and hope that you’ll get it right when you start all over again, with somebody new…by going on yet another “first date”…

So, just what the heck is it that you’re supposed to do on a first date that will get her to enjoy, and even cherish the memories – after the night is over… to a point where she won’t be able to wait to see you again, and spend more time with you?

Would you like to find that out – once and for all – so that you can stop guessing at what works and what doesn’t… and stop making those same “expensive” mistakes over and over again that continue to kill your chances with any girl you’re attracted to?

Because, you’re about to finally get the exact recipe to creating fun, excitement, romance, passion, connection… all the ingredients to pack into that first date, to make it a special and memorable one for her.

Now, you can learn exactly how it’s done … step-by-step… so that you can give any woman a magical night that she won’t soon forget…if ever!
