    The Gentle World Cafe: Emotional Abuse - The Role of Religion, Part I

    in Culture

    Domestic abuse can take many forms, one of them being emotional abuse. Many women face consistent emotional abuse that holds them captive because of their faith. In fact, their faith is used to enable their own abuse and they are left feeling it is God's will or their own fault.


    Suparna Malhotra, host of the Gentle World Cafe on the Voice of Leadership Radio Network will be talking to Nataline Daycreator, author, speaker, minister and coach who will share her experiences about emotional abuse, what it ia and why it happens in this first part of 2-part series.


    About our guest: Nataline Daycreator is the Ambassador and Founder of the UK based organisation, InterNations All Against Spiritual Abuse. Passionate to see individuals experience justice and freedom as a God given right, She campaigns with individuals, communities and agencies to raise awareness of Spiritual Abuse.


    Through her personal struggle of seeking protection for herself and her children, Nataline learnt the harsh realities of a legal system that failed to recognise Spiritual Abuse and is now determined that the law provides remedies in cases where it is needed.


    As a sought after speaker and international consultant on Spiritual abuse and Domestic violence within religion, Nataline draws from her personal journey of renewal and living in freedom after 14 years spent within a spiritual abusive place of worship in the heart of London.


    Her first book, "Wounded Sheep" chronicles this experience and will be released in 2015.

    in Art

    I think many times abuse of our hearts can be as traumatic as physical abuse.


    Of course it’s not nearly as obvious, but emotional abuse can be just as damaging to our souls and our spirits.


    Any form of abuse carries with it a tremendous blow on our self-worth and can lead to anxiety and depression. We know that.


    On this program, we're going to talk about the things that most don't know about emotional abuse and how self love can be your way out and through emotional abuse.

    Does Your Mate Just Have An Annoying Personality Trait or Is It Emotional Abuse?

    in Women

    Everyone has some aspects of their personality that can be annoying at times. If the one you love gets on your nerves sometimes, that's normal. Most things you can learn to overlook, forgive, and ignore, such as messiness, bossiness, forgetfulness, crankiness, and other behaviors that may appear or disappear depending upon your mate's moods. But some negative behaviors can be so intense as to cause emotional distress. How can you tell when you should be patient, tolerant and forgiving and when you should put your foot down because you're being abused? Today we'll discuss some situations that our listeners are experiencing and determine where to draw the line when it comes to tolerating unpleasant behavior from your mate.

    Verbal & Emotional Abuse: As An Onlooker, When & How Is It Okay To Interfere?

    in Relationships

    They say African Men are Aggressive!!!


    The other day I overheard a couples' conversation or rather argument. The husband said to the wife as quietly as he could muster under his breath (this was in the mall), "If you talk one more time!'" 


    Initially I thought he was talking to their kid, come to find out he was talking to his wife!!! No kids in sight!! I could see the fear in her eyes as she cowered under his command. Our eyes met for one brief second and the husband looked at the direction she was glancing at and he saw me looking at them. 


    I gave him my dirtiest, angriest look!! 


    He pulled her away and I tried to follow stylishly because I feared for the woman's fate with him.


    This makes me wonder, When and how do you interfere in a couples' squabble that you witness??? The whole scene was bordering on Abuse & Domestic Violence!!!


    Join us tonight at 8pm Central Time as we put such menace to rest.

    All domestic violence is not physical. In fact many would say that domestic violence begins with subtle emotional abuse.

Domestic Violence also happens among people in the church - congregants and leaders.

    Is Refusing Sex a Sign of Emotional Abuse?


    Many women think of sex as their ultimate power when it comes to relationships. Even a joking comment, "Haha! No bootie for you, patootie!" can make a man's chest clench in anticipated agony!


    When she's not joking, and instead uses her sexual availability to manipulate her boyfriend or husband into doing things her way, she's engaging in a form of emotional abuse. This passive-aggressive technique may be overt or covert. She might say she doesn't want to play unless he comes around to what she wants, or she may feign headaches, tiredness, or other ailments to avoid intimacy.


    It can be a slippery subject, because man

    Looking at Abusive Behaviors: Emotional Abuse

    in Self Help

    Abusive behavior in relationships is a common problem. This series on such behaviors will help you to evaluate the abuse level in your past or present relationship.


    Abuse is any behavior that is designed to control and subjugate another human being through the use of fear, humiliation, and verbal or physical assaults.


    Day 1: Emotional Abuse



    Emotional abuse is any kind of abuse that is emotional rather than physical in nature. It can include anything from verbal abuse and constant criticism to more subtle tactics, such as intimidation, manipulation, and refusal to ever be pleased.


    Day 2: Financial Abuse



    Financial abuse is a common tactic used by abusers to gain power and control in a relationship. Financial abuse can be very subtle -- telling you what you can and cannot buy or requiring you to share control of your bank accounts.


    Day 3: Sexual Abuse



    Sexual abuse refers to any action that pressures or coerces someone to do something sexually they don't want to do. Sexual abuse is unwanted sexual activity, with perpetrators using force, making threats or taking advantage of victims not able to give consent.


    Day 4: Using Children As A Weapon



    Using your children against you as a means to get you to do something that you wouldn’t usually want to do; to manipulate you and control you.


    Day 5: Physical Abuse



    Physical abuse is an act of another party involving contact intended to cause feelings of physical pain, injury, or other physical suffering or bodily harm. The root cause of emotional and psychological difficulties later in later are often attributed to physical abuse.  


    If you are concerned about your relationship please seek local professional assistance.

    in Self Help

    SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 11 - SCAN host Bill Murray will be joined by special guest co-host Rivka Edery, MSW, LCSW, from NYC, author of the book “Trauma and Transformation: A 12-Step Guide." Bill founded the recently launched Adult Survivors of Child Abuse Anonymous (ASCAA). Together they will lead tonight's discussion on STEP 11: "Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out." Step Eleven is the daily practice and experience of deepening your awareness of your Higher Power through prayer and meditation. You are capable of prayer and meditation, regardless of your background or history. If you set aside the time daily, you can reach for whatever you believe is greater than, deeper than, or beyond yourself. Step Eleven also assumes that by now you have a conscious awareness of your Higher Power, and you are drawn to deepening that connection. ~~ A child abuse survivor herself, Rivka Edery is grateful for the spiritual recovery she found in the 12 Steps of AA. She's been active in the 12 Step community for over 17 years. Bill Murray credits his 30 plus years of recovery to the spiritual power of the 12 Step program, too. ~~ Join us every two weeks to further examine a 12 Step approach to recovery from abuse. Next show we'll address STEP 12. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: rebecca.edery@gmail.com

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1085

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Jay Lore from Laurel. Maryland, child abuse survivor and author  of the book "Sometimes You Lose, Sometimes You Learn: How I went to a party one night for twenty years and lived to tell about it." Jay is transgendered from woman to man, and agrees this was a part of his recovery, of "being comfortable living inside his own skin." That wasn't always the case. "I was 4 years old when it started, I don't know at what age the physicality stopped. I was 32 when I first spoke it out loud to someone." Because of the abuse, Jay turned to drugs early on. "I did my first drugs at age 11. LSD, to be exact. It escalated from there. In group my councilor used to get me to read my drug list because it was so extensive and there were things she'd never heard of. There were three suicide attempts. "I was a cutter. I loved the feel of the blade, the sting as it pierced my skin, the pain told me I was able to feel .. something. I lost my kids." Eventually Jay called an 800 drug line. That was in 1987, and Jay's been clean now for over 28 years. "I've been telling my story every chance I get," he says, "to anyone who will listen and some who don't want to hear it." He offers his book for free. Jay now lives with his oldest daughter and her family. He attends and serves at church faithfully. "It's about reaching that one someone that needs to hear my story as only I can tell it. To get that one to realize there is hope and love and light. And most importantly, that they need never walk alone again."
