Women as Winners: Transactional Analysis for Personal Growth

By Dorothy Jongeward; Dru Scott | Go to book overview

Preface
Women As Winners is a practical and positive book for women and men who are ready to better understand the dynamic and perplexing changes facing women. It is for people who are ready to help women move in positive directions toward wholeness.Prepared or not, aware or not, women are coping with rapid change. Today's complex living with broken homes, longevity, smaller families, and more opportunities in the market place compels women to reach further to attain what they are capable of attaining.More than a decade ago Betty Friedan's heated and controversial book The Feminine Mystique energized a conscious awakening among many women. As a result, a bevy of books on women graces the shelves of your local bookstore. The goals of this book complement some of these books and challenge others. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it is very personal. It offers few answers. However, it does offer psychological tools and thought-provoking experiences to help you to discover your own answers, to set your own goals, and to solve your own problems. It is a beginning which offers a fresh perspective.Women As Winners is written to meet special needs:
It will give people insight, awareness, and understanding into women's past and present circumstances, the psychological limitations set on their self-images, and the learned compulsions which shape their life stories.
It will help to heal or soften the barriers that exist among women. Many things cut women away from one another—the generations, their quest for men, and what they learn to believe is their proper role. Because of these chasms we want to build bridges to better understanding between younger and older women, between women who have money or the financial support of men and low-income and single women, between women who campaign for equal pay for equal work and those who choose homemaking as a full-time career.
