Women who enter treatment for issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, stress disorders, sexual infidelity, partner betrayal, substance abuse, and disordered eating behaviors often have struggled with self-esteem and self-worth. They may have been verbally or physically battered and may suffer from the emotional aftermath of trauma from childhood. In tandem with other therapeutic approaches, women\u2019s empowerment classes can help clients develop self-esteem. Additionally, they can set boundaries and effectively communicate their needs. At a dual diagnosis treatment center, these classes can be the difference in your treatment. What Are Women\u2019s Empowerment Classes? Women who are not yet comfortable speaking up for themselves or are unable or unwilling at first to make comments in a group or during an individual therapy program may need ongoing support in order to begin their healing journey. At Promises Treatment Centers, we offer women\u2019s empowerment classes as part of group therapy to help clients repair or build a healthy self-perception, gain knowledge of helpful resources, and begin participating in social settings and gatherings. In a safe and supportive environment, women learn that they have the ability to: \tDevelop and maintain boundaries \tAssert their needs \tThink positively about their ability to create change \tLearn skills for claiming their personal power \tDevelop a healthy self-image \tParticipate in activities that contribute to their ongoing health and healing \tLearn to let go of self-consciousness that holds them back from getting their needs met Along with individual and group therapy, participation in women\u2019s empowerment classes adds to our clients\u2019 abilities to venture out on their own again following treatment. They come to recognize that they have value and that they\u2019re deserving of love and trust. At first, they may be fearful of attempting to find their voice, but they soon learn that what they have to say is important and that they are worthy. Finding Womens Empowerment Programs When you begin to seek treatment for yourself or a loved one, seek out facilities that provide womens empowerment programs as well as gender-specific care. It's vital that women gain confidence in their abilities in order to succeed after treatment. By entering these programs and classes, women are able to participate in treatment that is fulfilling, supportive, and enriching. Gender-specific care is also crucial to treatment because it places a focus on the unique problems women face. Such an environment helps clients feel comfortable to share their stories and work through the problems that led them to seek out treatment.
