Transcript W>men and Change By Deborah Diamond Hicks "These courses are for women who want to go beyond neighborhoods 77035 and 77096," says Marsha Elefant, director of the Individual Development Center. "We're going a step beyond consciousness raising. We're emphasizing action and change." The Individual Development Center is co-sponsoring a six-week series of seminars with the Bay Area Committee on Drug Abuse during April and May. Area women, experts in their fields, will lead the sessions. Their remarks appear below. Sheila Sheinberg, Ph.D., Univeristy of Houston, Dept. of Sociology, "A Woman and Change" "Life cycles is a perspective, a new paradigm for, interpreting sociological behavior. We too often assume that we are socialized one way in our youths and then just live that out. But change is continuous. Physical changes are most dramatic through adolescence, but equally important sociological and psychological changes are going on throughout life. All the significant studies of life cycles have been male-oriented - Shakespeare's Seven Ages of Man, Erikson's Eight Stages of Life, Levinsen's Four Seasons of Man. The female life cycle is totally different. —Take the success/motivation studies. These are all based on a male model. Competitive occupational/vocational success is the male dream; marriage and the children, the female dream. When we measure females against this male model we are measuring the disparity, the conflict, between the socialized female and the male dream. We need to look at motivation across the life cycle. Nancy Gulanick, PhD., University of Houston lecturer and counselling psychologist, "A Woman and Her Body" (May 2): "The media image does more than show us our imperfections, it creates them by promoting certain standards. We try to mold our bodies to fit these images. Look in the museums and see how women tried to mold themselves in various ways.. It seems absurd, but it's the same thing we're doing with support hose, high heels, and tight waisted clothing that doesn't even allow us room to eat. We take an ugly part of ourselves and project it on our whole being. We reinforce it every day by looking at it, and then we don't look any further. We need to break out of the pattern. We need to be aware of things that block an OK body image - the media, the perfection ideal - to start looking for what looks good and accept it, to set realistic goals for ourselves and take steps in areas where we can change ourselves." Dale Hill, PhD., practicing psychologist, "A Woman and Male/Female Relationships" (May 9): "Women in transition tend to go through a four-stage process. We start out with the 'sleeping beauty syndrome' - living an unaware, passive existence, and getting our affirmation from men. The second stage is anger - when women become anti-male - a negative reaction in which they are still defining themselves in terms of men. The third stage is characterized by a redirection of energy. Women Workshop participants (front row): KATHY WHITMIRE, NANCY GULANICK; (back row): CAROL WALSER, DR. DALE HILL, MARCIA ELFANT, and SHEILA SHEINBERG. find affirmation with women, and men are irrelevant. The final stage is reconnection, hooking back up with men in equal ways if such men can be found. Self-affirmation is the goal. At this point the woman is ready to deal with herself, with social issues, and with the community. It takes an aware therapist to see the stages. And the therapy should be action- oriented toward a change goal, not just emotive." Carol Walser, Director of Volunteer Services at TRIMS, "A Woman and Volun- teerism" (May 16): "Volunteerism is one of the action choices a woman can make. This is an opportunity to break out of the home — a bridge between motherhood and paid employment. Volunteerism is not an end in itself. It's an important stepping stone. Volunteers create paid positions, not take them away. They prove the need for a paid position." Goldie Rappaport, M.S.W., social psychotherapist, "A Woman and Guilt"(May 23): "Guilt often inhibits action. A large portion of behavior is a response to the shoulds, musts, and ought-tos in life. Guilt can rob us of good feelings, detract from our joy, and leave us feeling uncomfortable. But there can be a balance between the immobility from too much guilt and the amorality of too little." Kathy Whitmire, City Controller, "A Woman and Success"(May 30): "Women can integrate their personal style into a leadership/management situation. Since there are no role models, women can make their own rules. Women who break ground are on the spot all the time as a representative of women. They have an obligation on behalf of all other women to succeed." All sessions of this course will be at 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays at St. Paul's Catholic Church, 18223 Point Lookout Drive, Nassau Bay. Registration for the entire series is $40, or $8 individually. For further information or registration call 776-0047 or 333-3111.
