In Counseling Women Affected by Sexual Abuse and Domestic Violence, Dr. Morven Baker provides Christian counselors with the information and tools they need to effectively minister to female abuse victims. The course begins with a focus on sexual abuse, exploring its effects on children, the behavior and strategies of abusers, family roles and long-term consequences. It then covers domestic abuse, focusing on the impact and cycle of abuse, the reasons for abuse and the character of abusers. Throughout the course Dr. Baker includes tools for the protection and healing of victims, as well as self-care tips for counselors.
