"We must have shelters for women before we start providing services for the batterers. It would be extremely irresponsible and dangerous for us to reverse those priorities." While little is known about batterers there do seem to be some characteristics which most share. According to Hamlin, batterers "minimize, deny, and sometimes lie. He will tell you that all he did was shove his wife when in fact he broke her arm. "Many have these Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde personalities. They can be very charming and manipulative one minute, then extremely violent the next." Depression and suicidal impulses are also common among the batterers. Hamlin told the audience that batterers "may kill themselves. They may kill their wives. If you're going to work with domestic violence you'd better be prepared to deal with death." Star called on the audience to fight violence on all fronts and to form community coalitions. "This has been a year of tremendous growth, development and change," said Fojtik. "But there's still a long way to go." Goals parents never taught you BY DIANE DURBIN Women who attend the workshop on Women and Management at the Family Service Center on March 1 will work with someone who has gone through the process she's counseling about. It took Patty Feigle two years to decide to return to college. She made the transition from Memorial housewife, to graduate student, to a position as a therapist at the Family Service Center. And she has set the kinds of career goals for herself she urges women she counsels to work toward. Feigle says the way women are socialized in this culture results in a mind-set that makes them passive and afraid to take a risk. "It happens very gradually from the time the child is born. There are certain (sex-role) expectations. I think orte of the most limiting things is the parents' overprotectiveness of the female — not allowing them to take a risk." Men see risk as an opportunity of winning or losing, while women see it as entirely negative, she feels. Two books she recommends in the workshop are The Managerial Woman and Games Your Mother Never Taught You. The Managerial Woman is "so objective," Feigle says, "it doesn't say 'poor women.' It doesn't put men down, or the system. But the other work is much more judgemental of the system and men in general. The books deal with the patterns of difference between men and women and the way these differences affect career decisions. Men are taught from childhood they'll have to get a job and be self-reliant. The result is that men make early career decisions Women, however, learn to be dependent and seek out a man to take care of them. As a result, women make late career decisions. And after decisions are made there may be conflicts with ideas about being a wife and mother. Feigle makes no value judgements about whose characteristics are best. Instead, she uses techniques of therapy to teach women to use the information to increase awareness of how differences limit women seeking advancement, ways to break old patterns, and how falling back into old habits hinders development. Feigle says the most important thing for any woman to do is establish a support system outside the job and find a mentor — or, ideally, both a male and a female mentor — on the job. "The world has been developed and Diane Durbin is a graduate student at UH/CLC and is the mother of two daughters. built by men for men," Feigle says. "So, as we move out into it, it's just like moving to China. If we want to live and survive in China, we've got to learn Chinese. Then, we may be able to share some of our own knowledge and they could get some new information from us. I think women will do that. And in time men will learn. When there are enough women in power positions, it will change. But you can't change it until you've got the power to do so." The first technique Feigle uses is a free association exercise in which women "write down things they like, just anything, as wild and wooly as they want. As you look back over the list you can see patterns in life about what you want," she says. Feigle then has the women fantasize two job descriptions. "I want them to dream as far as they will allow themselves to dream. The point is to take the lids off," she says. "If you ask them to make it a reality thing, they will limit it so much that the exercise will not be beneficial." Next, Feigle has the women fit one of their dream jobs into reality by constuct- ing a time line for how long it will take to reach their goal. She also asks them to include on the time line what they would like to do after they reach their goal. "It's pretty darn scary to get to the end of the road, so some people will stop themselves from making their goal because they don't have anywhere to go afterward," she says. Now the women are ready to figure out action steps for reaching their goals. "We actually do that in the workshop," Feigle says, "so that when they leave they have some pretty good handles on where to begin.' The Women and Management Workshop is something Feigle has brought into the Family Service Center in the year and a half she's been there. "Moving into the whole business end of consulting has been my idea. I've gotten the green light to go to workshops to learn to do some of these things." Feigle will conduct the workshop at the Center's central office, 3635 W. Dallas. It costs $25 and will run from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Reservations should be made at least a week in advance by calling the Center's Educational Coordinator at 524-3881.
