Effectiveness Traning for Women ETW Author:Linda Adams with Elinor Lenz Your husband drives so fast that it scares you. Your family won't share the housework. Your mother is full of put-downs. Your co-workers smoke and you can't stand it. Your boss gives you work so late in the day that you miss your ride home. — In situations like these, women's rights come off the speaker's platform, where they have been fought out... more » in recent years. Now these issues are waiting for solutions on your own home grounds, where "Effectiveness Training for Women (E.T.W.)" deals with them in a down-to-earth, everyday way for the first time.
E.T.W. is an entirely new program. It is not the assertiveness training you've heard about. Step-by-step, with many case examples and actual dialogues, it demonstrates precisely how you can overcome traditional female passivity and dependence; how you can master fears of self-disclosure, confrontation, conflict. You can stop worrying that you're "unfeminine" when you speak up for your rights. And you can quite spending too much of your time living for others.
E.T.W. gives you much more. It shows you specific new skills so you cna overcome the personal problems that society has inflicted on women, and shows how to apply those skills daily in such a way that you can become a true equal-calmly and without interfering with the rights of others!
This is no contradiction. It works. It worked for parent-child relationships in "P.E.T.-Parent Effectiveness Training," which "The New York Times" called "a national mmovement." For student-teacher relationships in "T.E.T.-Teacher Effectiveness Training." For boss-subordinate relationships in "leader Effectiveness Training (L.E.T.)." More than 2 million copies of the books based on these courses have been sold. More than 5,000 instructors are licensed to teach these programs nationwide. E.T.W. comes from the same team. E.T.W., too, is based on a course of its own so that every step has been tested with thousands of women. It, too, is a success. Because it, too, works.
It works even when conflicts seem irreconcilable. Your husband wants you to change religious or political affiliation. Your child is messy. You're supposed to ask people to dinner whom you don't like. Your boss wants you to entertain company clients and you don't want to.
E.T.W. really works-and it's all here for you to use for yourself.
