Through the Never Going Back to Abuse Project women uncover their hidden talents, set new goals to awaken their creative potential and create a new, non-violent future for themselves and their children.
Women who reclaim their lives in this way are less likely to return to an abusive relationship and/or suffer the long-term physical and psychological consequences of the abuse they have experienced.
The Never Going Back to Abuse Project offers:
- motivational workshops and monthly support groups,
- private coaching sessions and weekend retreats
- other services to women to reclaim their lives after abuse.
CT-ALIVE has partnered with Susan Omilian, originator and faciliator of My Avenging Angel Workshops™, to provide these important services to women who have been abused.
This unique, innovative approach builds on the life-saving work of the domestic violence shelters and sexual assault crisis center. While the goal of those programs has been to get the women safely out of abuse, this project will help women rebuild their self esteem and work positively to stabilize their lives emotionally, financially and socially so that they will not return to an abusive relationship in the future.
Participants in these workshops have started their own businesses, returned to school to get advanced degrees in law and medicine, got new jobs at higher pay that more closely match to their skills and talents, resumed singing careers, become first-time homeowners, successfully managed their money and found new, healthy, non-abusive relationships.
