The goal of this paper is to look at ways that a technology training program can help to economically empower victims of domestic violence. In order to be effective in creating a program that is sensitive to their special circumstances, the root cause of domestic violence, which is control, was examined. Also looked at was the way control played itself out in both the home and the workplace, as women worked to better themselves over the centuries. Also outlined were some of the psychological issues that fed and complicated a battering relationship. The program proposed is a self-taught/self-paced educational program, to prepare domestic violence victims for better jobs in the American market place. While this program concentrated heavily on technology training, it also included tutorials in various other topics, such as American English (as a second language), literacy training, and counseling.
