Abused Woman Recovery Program (AWRP)

“Empowering the abused woman to recover”


What It Is: A program designed to provide educational support, through training, to abused and battered women of domestic violence.

Mission: To teach abused women how to recover from the bondage of domestic violence.

Purpose/Goal: To help abused women realize they can recover from the bondage of domestic violence and show them how to recover.

Program Theme: The theme of the program is “Recovering From Abuse.” Each book or teaching/lecture we discuss will be centered on recovering from the bondage of domestic violence. However, the main tool that will be used in the AWRP is an educational skills training program called, “Tools for Triumphant Living” (will be explained later).

Program Vision: To empower abused women of all nationality through education and training so they will be set free from the bondage of domestic violence.

Program Topics: The AWRP topics will be all the components of the “Tools for Triumphant Living” Program (will be given later) plus additional lectures (as described below). After completion of the components of the “Tools for Triumphant Living” Program, the client will receive a Certificate of Completion. However, there will not be a Certificate of Completion given for the Lecture classes because they are a part of the “Abused Woman Recovery Group” sessions. They can be taken as individual classes but the client will not receive a certificate for completing them.

Additional Lectures:

  • In depth study of Dr. Dorothy E. Hooks’ book, “Unholy Matrimony: Healing For The Abused Woman.” In the book, Dr. Hooks talk about the consequences of marrying outside the will of God and shares her testimony of how God brought her though her process of deliverance from the bondage of domestic violence after 37 years. So Dr. Hooks knows what it feels like be abused, hopeless,   helpless, and homeless.

 

  • In depth study of Drs. Henry Cloud & John Townsend book, “Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No, To Take Control of Your Life.” In this book, Drs.   McCloud and Townsend explain what boundaries are and how to set them in    your life.

 

  • To help abused women realize they are not alone, Dr. Hooks addresses the issue of loneliness in her lecture entitled, “You Are Not Alone: A Study about Loneliness.” Dr. Hooks has battled with loneliness herself after leaving her abuser and every woman she has spoken with, had the same problem. Now, she recognizes it is a tool that can be used to cause women to go back to the abusive relationship.

 

  • Other lecture topics will be created as the need arises.

 

 

TOOLS FOR TRIUMPHANT LIVING CHRISTIAN BASED EDUCATIONAL SKILLS TRAINING PROGRAM
