Women who attend Women's Group for problem gambling almost always use gambling to suppress angry feelings. What every woman the author has met in Women's Group most wants and yet at the same time what she most fears. Women's Group can help a member to identify the developed pattern of negative thinking and behaving that she has become frozen by. Betrayal can practise developing flexible boundaries and being more discerning about whom she might trust to let in. For many women rejection is a familiar feeling, and yet the sickening pain that crushes and grinds their self-worth to an even lower level is not eased by the repetition. Trust is ever a piece of the puzzle people fit together in Women's Group to complete the picture of why a woman's gambling problem began, where she is now, and how she will move forward into a productive, healthy and fulfilling life.
