For years we have heard victims of Domestic Violence say they are staying for the sake of the children. Truth is they're doing their children no favors and expose them to greater harm than they imagine. Join me and my guest Dr. Yvette Kanarick , Psychologist and Author on August 17th, as we discuss attachment and bonding, influences on the behaviors of victims and batterers and the implications of child victims of domestic violence in the long run. The number for the show is 713-955-0734.
The words domestic violence are usually assoiciated with an adult woman being abused by an adult male. One in four women will be affected by some form of domestic violence, in their lifetime. Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another. It includes physical violence, sexual violence, psychological violence, and emotional abuse. http://www.ncadv.org/need-support/what-is-domestic-violence.
With awareness growing, studies have been geared to teen domestic violence. The statistics are alarming. http://www.loveisrespect.org/resources/dating-violence-statistics/ Over 1.5 million high school students will experience some form of physical abuse, this year. 43% of college dating women have reported some form of abuse. These numbers only include the reported number of cases. Statistically, only 33% of those vicitims every told anyone about the abuse. Parents that were surveyed don't believe that teen domestic violence is an issue (81%). The shocking part, only 58% of parents could identify the signs of an abusive relationship.
Organizations can spread awareness, but education is needed for our teens. As of July 2014, only 22 states had some form of legislation; in place, that addresses education for teen dating violence. http://www.ncsl.org/research/health/teen-dating-violence.aspx
Spreading awareness is a step in the right direction, but without educational programs we could see these statistics continue to grow.
Today I will talk with Dr.Linda Olson about the devastating effects growing up in a family of domestic violence has on children.
"More than 1 in 7 adults in the United States, or 40 million people, lived with domestic violence as children. Worldwide, the number of people who currently are living with it is 275 million."
(Martin, Brian F. (2014-09-30). Invincible: The 10 Lies You Learn Growing Up with Domestic Violence, and the Truths to Set You Free (Penguin Publishing Group).
As domestic and sexual abuse awareness grow, the common statement "Why didn't they just leave," still gets mentioned. Matthew Eaton will join the show today and talk about the 13 insidious rules of sexual abuse survivors. Many times we associate abuse with some form of physical abuse. However, the emotional abuse that goes along with the physical abuse can be more harmful, than the bruises. The bruises go away, but the emotional torment can take a long time to go away. Mathew will also share his story, and how he has survived. He now writes and blogs about sexual abuse, and is an advocate to raise awareness.
On this past Saturday we had a special event, with Driven 2 Destiny Outreach Center Inc and Women Empowerment Supportive Services On June 6th we ask people to join us by posting a comment stating that they are fighting to End Domestic Violence.....We will be sharing with you on today one story from one of those who joined us..
We are talking with a young lady today about the way she survived Domestic Violence and some of the measures that were taken to ensure her survival. She will also share with us where she is today in life and her pursuites and passions that drive her in the business world. She has started her own non-profit organization to assist women who are in a Domestic Violence situation and while she is building the organization she continues to reach out and help others.
Tonight on Tackling Domestic Violence, Troy Otradovec welcomes Laura from We Are Survivors International to the show. Laura was in an abuse relationship, and she will share her story. Today her and her chlidren are still coping, but taking all the right steps forward. From the words of Laura:
"Two years ago, I left my emotionally and physically abusive husband. It has been an emotional roller coaster but we are two years free and my two children and I are working through the aftershocks of a violent marriage. The effects of one monster's brutal behavior has changed our world, our outlook on life and relationships. We went through hell, but we are working through it and are in a much brighter and safer place now. The three of us will deal with the impact of this for the rest of our lives, however we are survivors and I am hopeful that we will break the cycle."
Domestic Violence affects one in four women, in their lifetime. Over six million children will witness some form of domestic abuse this year. It is time to stop domestic violence one person at a time. Listen in and call the show with your thoughts.
When it comes to Domestic Violence we need to take a second look at the premise of power and control and an even harder look at choice.

Victims of this type of cruelty comes from all walks of life--- all cultures, every income group, all ages and all religions.

In the wake of the tragedy where Reality TV Star lawyer Loredana Nesci, Esq. was murdered by her boyfriend Robert Reagan, we feel it is important that we discuss domestic violence. The signs, the symptoms, the forms, the problem. Many times people do not realize that they are being abused because the abuse takes the form of emotional abuse. No abuser starts off with physical abuse; it is a progression. First it starts with emotional abuse.
Listen in to the show to learn more about domestic violence.
