With the Ray Rice incident, we are missing a teachable moment for domestic violence.
We keep sending the same message, which is that men shouldn't hit women, but we need to deliver the message that women should also keep their hands to themselves.
To blindly claim that dealing with the victim's side is "blaming the victim" is also harming the victim. By focusing on shutting down ALL violence, the actual abusive behavior can be reduced. How? By truly understanding domestic violence, instead of pretending that every man who hits a woman is a one dimensional ape.
Domestic Violence is a horrible crime against the institution of family. It is most often perpetuated against women, but is also perpetrated against men and children. This show will discuss the co-dependent relational behaviors that help to sustain an abusive relationship, which include behaviors of both men and women that feed into the need to abuse and be pabused. Special Guest Dr. Donald Grant, Jr., a practicing psychologist will help to identify behaviors and define abuse. Co-hosts, Tracy Powell, Dr. John Hamilton, Marcus D. LeGall, III and DJ Gates

In light of what's transpired this week, after the video of Ray Rice assaulting his now wife was released, my TL on Twitter has blown up. Most of the tweets have been in regard to domestic violence and I wanted to open up the phone lines and do a special show about this topic. This show will begin with my sharing . . .
In April 2004, I completed an Advanced Threat Assessment and Management Academy held by Gavinde Becker & Associates at the UCLA Conference Center. On January 25, 2009, I earned a Master's Degree from Boston Univerity in the field of Criminal Justice. Somewhere along the way I read a million books, or what felt like a million books on the topic of domestic violence. The reasons why might surprise you.
I think the way the NFL Commissioner handles matters like these is abysmal. I'm trying to understand why. What did he and/or the Ravens learn from the release of this video, that we didn't already know or should have known? I don't understand why Ray Rice was cut. Why not a six game suspension, if they were going to make any adjustments at all? I don't get it. Feel free to enlighten me 'cause I'm just as confused as ever about the National Football League.
Domestic Violence: The complications of love, abuse, and society passing judgement. Why doesn't she just leave? Some part of her must like it. She's stupid for staying with him. She probably deserved it.
Join Chrystal and Chiara tonight as they discuss this extremely hard topic.
Domestic Violence is nothing New! But its been running rampid on the News recently!! The Drop wants your opinion, we want your stories!! How do you feel about the recent situations (Ray Rice, The NFL) and how they're being handled! Then there's Child Abuse (Adrien Peterson, The NFL) When is it crossing the line, when it comes to disciplining your child?? Tell us how you feel about it, how do you discipline your children? Do you use a switch? Do you use a belt? Or just put them on Time Out?
Social media has been buzzing this week over a newly released video showing ex-NFL player Ray Rice violently striking his then fiance' in an elevator. So, tonight we decided to re-play a show we did on domestic violence. It was one of the most popular shows Center Stage has done, and provided a lot of good information for anyone who currently finds themselves in this situation.
The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) was the first major law to help government agencies and victim advocates work together to fight domestic violence, sexual assault, and other types of violence against women. It created new punishments for certain crimes and started programs to prevent violence and help victims. Over the years, the law has been expanded to provide more programs and services.
Domestic violence is considered one of the most pressing issues in American society. Everyone quotes the statistics given by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence: 1 in 4 women will be victims of domestic violence at some point in their lives, 1.3 million women are assaulted by their partner every year, 85% of domestic violence reported is against women. However, in a conflicting survey taken by the CDC in 2010, it was found that 40% of the victims of severe, physical domestic violence are men.
The media and government focus the most attention on the female victims of domestic violence. Men are largely silent on the issue because of the perception that men are physically stronger and should be able to subdue a female attacker easily. Those men who do report physical violence are more likely to be ridiculed–both by law enforcement and by the public–than women are.
Physical Violence and Domestic Abuse Are not exclussively to having female victims! Men are significantly abused and victims of physical violence OFTEN in relationships by their female counterpart! We REALLY have to elevate our level and methodology towards EDUCATING ALL PEOPLE to the down sides of #PhysicalViolence and #DomesticAbuse We must STOP SETTING OUR WOMEN UP with the ignorant notion and cindiotoning that they can merely violently act on thier emotional empulses of dislike and distain, etc!!! This will significantly help our society as a whole, vs just the "battered women of the country"!
Make sure you CHeck out the archive from this show...
Domestic violence and you. The world is moving and you have to be part of it or you may find that you are a part of the problem. We have a lot of attention on the subject with the recent violance in the sports world and other places. Note sports are just a small window of the world at large.
Violance is happening all around open your eyes.
Domestic violence is a term used to characterize a pattern of obvious and subtle hash and brash behaviours resulting into physical and psychological abuses between partners in any types of intimate relationships or other members in a household. Domestic violence can be in a cumulative form of physical, emotional, verbal, economic and sexual abuse or any other type of control mechanism to coerce another individual perpetually. Consequences of domestic violence vary from anxiety, dismay, social disconnect, fragile mental state, tension, breakdown mental and unpredictable consequences such as illness, homicide or permanent disfigurement.
Although domestic violence is a punishable crime and a civil wrong in most well developed countries, it is often under-reported for obvious reasons and hard to prove before the consequence of violence has already taken its toll on the victim, who also may act in self-defence or retaliation. This problem is a growing concern for law enforcement everywhere, as it creates inherent problems in the criminal justice system. Therefore, it is within our civil responsibility to the society as well as it is to the state that we address this issue together. We urge people to join the discussion to help shed a light on various perspectives surrounding domestic violence and more on how to encourage victims to talk openly about how to identify and correct the pattern before it escalates. There are help programs for both abusers and victims.
