In “Genucel and Women Aware Walking Toward Self-Esteem,” Stephen Ray explains how the two groups help women who are the victims of abuse and as a result have developed lowered self-esteem and self-worth. Ray points out that one of the best ways to combat the symptoms of abuse, which can also include self-harm and lower self-esteem, is to find self-care methods and focus on them to improve personal worth.
Multiple self-care routines are recommended by mental health professionals and survivors for the best emotional and physical health following episodes systematic abuse. This many times would include self-reflection or in other words reminding oneself how beautiful, loved and worthy they are. Ray mentions at first survivors don’t believe in their own self-reflection, but if continued in repetition they do help improve the person’s outlook on life as some studies show.
Taking negative energy and focusing it on creative routines such as art or dance has been known to be very effective in the self-care improvement process. A victim’s self worth can also be increased through exercise and proper hygiene routines which of course center around keeping a healthy body.
One of the most effective steps for abuse survivors is to refocus on body positivity and wellness. This allows survivors the opportunity 2 rebuild their former selves, eliminating the stigma their abusers created during those events of degradation. A sub-company of Chamonix, Genucel displayed it’s support for children and women who have experienced abuse in their past by Distributing “beauty bags” to Women Aware. Inside each of these bags are Genucel by Chamonix products and toiletries.
Based out of Middlesex, New Jersey Women Aware is an organization of nonprofit that supports battered families in that area. The organization has been in existence since 1981, its focus is centered around providing shelter, food, and programs of recovery for the women of New Jersey and their families. With a domestically related act of violence taken place just about every 7 minutes, this state ranks with one of the most significant rates.
Having a confident feeling is a subset routinely significant in the process of healing. A realization such as this was brought to the attention of Genucel after the continuous service support provided by Women Aware. Genucel also took into account, that by assisting survivors in reducing physical appearance of abuse also helped eliminate reminders of their painful and haunting experiences of former lives back then.
