This manual is for use by women who have been abused. It can be used as a guide for groups, for people who are working on their own healing and recovery, and by agencies or organizations for program planning and implemention.

Mary Ellen Copeland co-authored the book, Healing the Trauma of Abuse: A Gentle Woman's Guide, with Maxine Harris of Community Connections in Washington, DC. This important self-help book describes a weekly lesson process that women can use to relieve the effects of trauma in their lives, either when working in a group, with a counselor, or when, as many women must do, working on their own. It rebuilds self-esteem and gives back the personal power, trust and sense of connection that are taken away by a traumatic experience.

This book is based on the findings of an intensive study of strategies that help women who have been traumatized to heal from the effects of this trauma and make their lives the way they want them to be.
