Dealing with Domestic Abuse: Lessons from Kathy By Dr. Angelea PanosTop Rated Kathy was a smart, logical and practical woman. At 27, she already owned her own home, car and successful floral business. She was awe-struck the moment she saw Kirk. He was handsome and very charming. He came into her store to buy two dozen roses for his girl-friend. “It must have been quite a fight,” Kathy joked. Little did she know how true her words were. Kirk smiled, but said nothing. However, he came back a couple of days later for more flowers. Kathy asked him how it had worked out.“We broke up.” he stated. “I am here to get some flowers for my mother who is in the hospital.” Nearly every day he came in and bought flowers, and their conversations grew longer. After a couple of weeks Kirk asked her out. http://www.giftfromwithin.org/html/dviolenc.html -

Domestic Violence Doesnt Discriminate A good overview article on domestic violence and abusive relationships, helping you to understand that it's a more complicated issue than what it might first seem. Psychological abuse can be hard to recognize because it doesnâ€™t produce physical scars. Yet many women agree that it is actually much harder to bear than physical abuse, according to Elaine Weiss, Ed.D. of the Department of Family Preventive Medicine at the University of Utah School of Medicine. Weiss is author of Surviving Domestic Violence: Voices of Women Who Broke Free. http://psychcentral.com/library/domestic_violence.htm -

Our team name is S.L.A.P. (yes, to all the UK members, I am a slapper! LOL) Come visit our site, meet the team and find out more about how, what and why we are doing this hard and dangerous race.
Noone needs to suffer at the hands of these cowardly bullies any longer. People need to know there is help and advice out there for them.
Please visit our site and help us help others. If we can help just one person out of a frightening and dangerous situation then all our hard work, training and efforts will have been worth it. http://www.runforsafety.bravehost.com/ -

Silence Speaks Violence shapes the lives, experiences, and dreams of countless adults and children each year. In the case of people of color, lesbian/gay/bisexual/ transgender individuals, and youth, this violence can be compounded by experiences of racism; homo/transphobia; and ageism and insensitivity to youth culture. Sadly, few opportunities exist for survivors to tell their stories in their own words. Silence Speaks fills this gap by connecting survivors and witness of abuse with their creativity and making their voices the centerpiece of violence prevention and social justice efforts.
