Abuse, Trauma, and Addictive Behavior
Most of us have either known a woman who has been traumatized and abused, or we have experienced it ourselves. Based on your experience (whether in observation or personally) and/or the readings, presentations, and videos over the past 2 weeks, provide your insights into what you think is most meaningful to emphasize when counseling an abused or traumatized woman. (If you have not had any observational or personal experience in this area, use your course materials speculate on what you think would be most meaningful to emphasize.)
