PAGE — Page Regional Domestic Violence Services Executive Director Katherine Reusing published a self-empowerment book titled “The Pinball Effect — Making Change: Facilitate Change and End the Shame Blame Rage Connection.”
The book includes curriculum used in the “Making Change” offender intervention program and focuses on making healthy choices.
“We need to learn to heal from the things that cause rage in us,” Reusing said. “It’s because of unresolved feelings from the past that lead us to that point.”
She said the desire to act out usually comes from unresolved feelings. Understanding where these feelings come from and working through them can help a person become more self empowered.
“People don’t deliberately get up in the morning and see how bad they’re going to screw up their day,” Reusing said. “They do what they know, and what they know doesn’t bring the results they want.”
The book is about teaching someone how to make healthy choices and create healthy relationships. It focuses on concepts like communication. For the complete article see the 05-02-2012 issue.
