On one hand, domestic violence committed by intimate partners — current or former spouses, boyfriends or girlfriends — has declined by more than 60 percent since the mid-1990s, according to Justice Department figures.
Yet the dramatic decrease from 1995 through 2004 has largely stalled, with the numbers stabilizing at a level that appalls people in the prevention field. The latest federal figures for "serious" intimate partner violence — sexual assault or aggravated physical assault — showed 360,820 such incidents in 2013, or roughly 1,000 per day.
October is "Domestic Violence Awareness" month, and it's important to shed a light on a matter that affects 1 out of 4 women during her lifetime. Too often we continue to believe that domestic violence has a look, or affects a certain race, financial bracket or many other traits that aren't true. Join us two survivors sit down to discuss their testimonies, victories and the aftermath of being in abusive relationships. They may look very different on the outside, but their journeys are quite similar.

Join Ms Reason and J Floyd as they discuss Domestic abuse. October is Domestic Abuse Awareness Month but we feel that everyday is awareness day. Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone, yet the problem is often overlooked, excused, or denied. This is especially true when the abuse is psychological, rather than physical. Noticing and acknowledging the signs of an abusive relationship is the first step to ending it. No one should live in fear of the person they love.
IS THIS WHAT WE CAN DO TO ELIMINATE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE?
We are always asking ourselves what we can do to prevent or eliminate domestic violence (DV). Could the Quincy Solution be the answer?
It makes sense that ending DV requires a legal system that women can use readily to get help, and that takes full legal measures against abusers, right? Seems reasonable, but for whatever reasons, it doesn’t often work that way. The Quincy Solution comes from a 1987 study by a suburban Boston judicial district that actually researched what could help eliminate DV, and they based the Quincy Solution upon that research. They found that in order to be effective against DV, the system had to empower victims and control abusers. Easy to say, but how do we do that?
Barry Goldstein, a nationally recognized domestic violence author, speaker and advocate will join us Saturday to talk about the Quincy Solution. He has written several of the leading domestic violence books including Domestic Violence, Abuse and Child Custody co-edited with Dr. Mo Therese Hannah, Representing the Domestic Violence Survivor, co-authored with Elizabeth Liu and Scared to Leave Afraid to Stay. His newest book is The Quincy Solution: Stop Domestic Violence and Save $500 Billion.
Join us Saturday at 11 am Pacific Time to learn more about the Quincy Plan and domestic violence.

October is the month supposedly set aside for Domestic Violence Awareness. However, it is also Breast Cancer Awareness and the issue of Domestic Abuse and Domestic Violence is overshadowed.
It is very important that we push to keep domestic violence on the plate of medias through whatever means are available to you. It is an epidemic and seriously out control and destroying families and relationships.
Join us as we share information regarding what you can do this month to support advocates who are against domestic violence and fighting to make sure that it is kept on the front and not the back burner.

This will be a heartfelt interview with my guest Suzanne Perry who is a survivor of domestic violence. Often you hide the bruises and the shame behind a smile while afraid on the inside to speak up and take control back in your life. Together we will give information on how to escape the behavior and take that first step towards the rest of your life before death becomes your alternative. Domestic Violence is not on a female problem but men are abused as well. Let's stop the cycle and stop the madness.

Ms. Bevelyn Mitchell, She has worked in the field of Social Work for the past 16 years. Much of her work has been done in Horry, Georgetown and Williamsburg counties. She believes that God has given her the compassion to relate to those who are hurting. This also allows her to educate the community, local hospitals, law enforcement, educators and anyone who listen. Rape is forced, unwanted sexual intercourse. Rape, sometimes also called sexual assault, can happen to both men and women of any age.
Dr. Beverly Boone, is a native of Troy, North Carolina. If you look at a map of North Carolina, you will see that Troy (Montgomery County) sits in the middle of the state.
