Transcript of Small Group Communication

Helping Hands is a group of six
Communication Studies majors
who joined Small Group Communication class
in order to learn how to work as a group in the
fight against abuse. JBWS stands for the Jersey
Battered Women's Service.
JBWS is a full-service,
private,non-profit agency
against domestic violence.
They have been preventing
domestic violence and
providing a shelter for
women in Morris County
since 1976. Sophia
"I wore makeup to cover my
bruised and puffy face. I wore
long sleeves in the middle of
summer to hide my bruised body.
I stopped looking in the mirror
because I hated what I had become." "Nobody cared about
me—my husband often
told me so. The memory
of his words stung. I should
have stayed for the kids’
sakes. They would never
forgive me for robbing them
of their Christmas." Laurie Pay it Forward Group Bios Team Contract

I, ______________________________________________ , as part of Helping Hands, agree to abide by the following rules:
I will be an active member of the group during group meeting times.
I will be respectful of my group members and their time.
If I am not able to attend a meeting or will be late to a meeting, I will let my fellow group members know beforehand.
I will offer nothing but my best work and effort to the rest of the group.
I will always keep the main objectives and goals of the group in mind.
In addition to the group goals, I will keep in mind the missions and intents of the Jersey Battered Women’s Service, and try to serve those missions appropriately. Values
