    Teen Dating Violence statistics are alarming

    in Current Events

    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.

    Anger: Hypnotherapy and Domestic Violence

    in Health

    This month of November 2015, Nick & Joanna will be talking about Anger; first discussing the perspecive of Ayurveda on this intense and sometimes mysterious and dangerous emotion, and then on the 25th, as it relates to Domestic Violence and how hypnosis can be a  helpful tool for addressing and manging it.

    As with all things in Ayurveda, we go back to the doshas.  Anger is primarily a Pitta emotion (Fire). The fire of Pitta, when out of balance can rage out of control and create havoc emotionally.  And as Ayurveda views all symptoms, we ask the question, what is it telling us; about our physical, mental, emotional and even spiritual well-being? 

    Are there some people who are just prone to an anger response when under stress?  Should anger always be judged as a bad thing? Is it ever justified? What can be done to manage anger from a Vedic perspective?

    We will be talking about these things and more as well as providing some suggestions for keeping that internal fire burning brightly, but not out of control.  

    On the 25th, the focus will be on hypnotherapy as a tool to deal with anger as well as answer all of the questions above, from the perspecive of the hypnotherapist. We will also be focusing on domestic violence as a serious problem in our culture that must be addressed, and what we can do individually and collectively to be a part of the solution. It's more than just raising awareness.

    A Hezekiah Moment About Domestic Violence

    in Christianity

    If you're read my book you'll notice that I've been married twice. I learned a long time ago after marriage that you need to know someone before you marry them, or at least give yourself time to get to know them before you tie the knots. I learned the hard way that my first wife had an anger management problem and when she got mad she would start hitting me. Mind you she didn't do this while we were courting, but it soon came after the I do's. I took this off and on beating, the pushing down the steps, the hitting me upside my head with a glass object for several years until I broke and finally fought back, and then I got into trouble with the law because I had never said anything about her beating me. I said to myself, which was wrong of me that she was only doing it because her father had the same problem and beat her mom years ago before they divorced.  Well I think that's what all victims think or make excuses about.  I myself watched my father abuse my mom too, and made a promise that I would never do that, but I'll admit that after three or four years of that I snapped one time and regretted ever since.  

    The thing I didn't realize is that that seed along with other mess was in me and I didn't even realize it till years later. And when other mess was building up in me, or as Pastor Larry Watkins put it, when Satan slow walked me into my mess, instead of being abused I became the abuser.I'm glad God slowed me down, forgave me and put me here to help others and get the word out that domestic abuse, sexual abuse and all the other abuse is REAL.

    Join me this Friday November 13, 2015 as we Welcome LaQuisha Hall to The Man In The mirror platform and she continues to tell us about her powerful role in helping and educating those who have been through domestic violence and then empowers them to go beyond what they've been through.
