A Domestic Violence survivor turns her test into a testimony, and is willing and ready to share her story.
Domestic violence and toxic relationships are extremely widespread and can escalate at any moment without warning to be harmful and even fatal.
Often times victims hide behind the shame, or guilt, and want to keep the kids in a two-parent household.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Tune in to hear the rebroadcast of my interview with success coach and domestic violence survivor, Liz Simpson. Every 9 seconds, in the United States, a woman is assaulted or beaten. More than 1 in 3 women have experienced rape, domestic violence or stalking and kept quiet. The first step to putting the pieces back together is not easy and can be daunting at times. Many victims feel ashamed, helpless and emotionally spent. Liz J. Simpson used to be one of those women. Her debut book, The Puzzle Pieces Of Me: How To Find Yourself, Love Yourself & Live The Life Of Your Dreams is a self-help memoir and was released on October 1st. This heartfelt, empowering story shared publicly, for the very first time, chronicles Simpson’s life as a college student on academic scholarship at a big ten university, changing her major and unknowingly triggering a series of events that would change her life forever. In a blink of an eye, she became a homeless, abused, single mother on welfare, living in a battered women shelter with an infant daughter. The book also illustrates how she overcame all that to become the success she is today!
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.

On Firday @ 7:30 EST Join me and experts as we discuss DV at blogtalk.com/blogtalkusa or call in (347) 855-8118. Domestic Violence against women should be viewed as violence against the community. We should see men’s violence against women as not stemming from individual pathology, but rather from a socially reinforced sense of entitlement. Continuously viewing this problem from an individual standpoint will never heal a nation. We must cut at the roots of the problem and not at the branches! We must reexamine the methods and assumptions in which men and women are educated about preventing and stopping Domestic Violence.
