plus P&P (if applicable)

Dr. Lenore Walker has worked with physically, psychologically, and sexually abused women for more than 30 years and has developed an approach to their treatment called Survivor Therapy. In this dramatic recreation of key moments in the two-year course of therapy with Sarah, a 36-year-old battered woman with a history of childhood sexual abuse, Walker (the recipient of the American Psychological Associations 1994 Distinguished Contribution to Women's Health Award) illustrates the basic principles of her approach.

By watching this video, you'll gain increased understanding and skills in:

  • Conducting the critical first session interview
  • Collaboratively developing a crisis intervention safety plan
  • Effectively working with trauma and the cycles of violence
  • Helping abused women to gradually shed coping strategies that are no longer adaptive, regain self-esteem, and rebuild healthier lives

Combining scenes from numerous therapy sessions with commentary by Dr. Walker, this video is a valuable teaching tool for practitioners of all orientations and experience levels.
