In the Healthy Relationships groups, women will be addressing issues of co-dependency, process love and/or sex addictions, and gain education on healthy boundaries and communication in a relationship. Our curriculum is founded on extensive works published by Pia Melody, Brene Brown and Patrick Carnes. Biblio-therapy is used, as well as recommendations and encouragement to read specific books outside of groups. Safe Harbor will introduce women to many concepts including the importance of boundaries, protection and containment, family roles and systems, entitlement, the caretaking of others, and the Karpman Triangle. Building self-esteem through esteem-able acts, understanding the “wounded child” and “adapted-adults,” and finding acceptance allows the women at Safe Harbor to empower their selves. The end result is to become functioning adults with balanced self-value and worth.
