A triad of very early development factors produce an abusive personality.
1. Witnessing abuse in the family of origin.
2. Being ashamed by a parent.
3. Being insecurely attached to a parent through their erratic emotional availability.
The full development of the abusive personality may be formed over time but the direction is set early on.
These are just a few of the factors in developing an abuser male or female.
Join us as we discuss how these factors manifest themselves in later adult relationships.

THE MIC WILL BE OPEN FOR EXPRESSION, COMMENTARY AND SHARING OF RESOURSES AND INFORMATION. SPECIAL GUEST COHOST IS WINGMAN GERALD GREEN A VICTIM TURNED SURVIVOR NOW A TIRELESS ADVOCATE TO BREAK THE CYCLE IN THE LIVES OF OTHERS.
SPONSORED BY MARK PITTMAN--Domestic abuse is a serious issue. Victims are traumatized by direct threats, and imprisoned by conditioned co-dependency. When someone you love, depend on, or who has supported you turns violent or becomes the very oppressor they once shielded you from, the damage is hard to repair. African-Americans on a whole suffer massive domestic abuse...by the nation that was supposedly built on freedom, civil liberties, choice and morals. A country that promised to afford and protect the rights of people to live freely and choose their deity, wardrobe, faith and preferences without fear of repercussions or harm. The victim pool is massive among these two factions. How do we overcome the chains and the self-lothin instilled in us by our perpetrators? How do we truly break free from the chains that bind us to the pain we loathe yet cannot seem to put in its rihtful place...which is back on the people who gave it to us. Join in tonight at 10:30 pm EST with your thoughts.

The question comes up quite often regarding domestic abuse and those who survive it. "Did you choose to be abused?" It may seem to be a harsh question to ask a survivor and really asinine to ask this question.
However, if you do not understand how domestic abuse slips into your world and begin to tear at your very core. Yes, maybe the quesiton should be asked.
We will share how one may choose it and more important how not to choose it.
Conscious-decision is very important in which relationship you will choose. Are you choosing one that will set you up to be abused or choosing to be in a "healthy" relationship?

DO RELIGIONS HELP OR HINDER DOMESTIC VIOLENCE VICTIMS?
Popular televangelist Pat Robertson recently advised a child who wrote in asking what to do when his father waves a gun around the mother when they fight. With all apparent concern and sincerity, the TV preacher told the child, “you don’t want to get your father busted,” and that instead of calling the police, the child should tell his mother to tell the father to get help. Huh?? This man clearly has no business giving out advice about domestic violence when he so clearly has no grasp of what it is nor how to handle it. Unfortunately, the young listener isn’t the only one who is getting dicey and dangerous advice about DV.
So is Robertson typical of the religious stance on domestic violence? Are women being given advice by their clergy that is wrong, harmful, lacking in understanding of what DV is? Unfortunately, some women are. The good news is that some clergy have the knowledge, understanding and common sense to really help in these situations.
