Myriads of unhappy women feel overwhelmed by formal legal processes and a criminal justice system they believe to be ridden with gender and other biases. Personal crises, whether in their captive lives or in correctional institutions, leave women facing dead ends and crossroads that cause lasting visible and invisible damage to body and mind if not addressed. They need help that is professional without being intimidating. In Conflict and Custody recommends fine-tuned agenda-free professional counselling as the most constructive method of addressing the mental health issues of women in two problematic contexts in the Indian society conflict and custody.

The book imparts theoretical and practical guidance for trainers and would-be counsellors to equip them for therapeutic counselling of women faced with a range of personal, social, and legal problems. It demonstrates how professionally conducted therapeutic intervention can be the most empathetic way of enabling and empowering distressed women to take charge of their lives.
