    Male Abuse Awareness Domestic Violence Victims - 'Shame' the movie

    in Self Help

    Male Abuse Awareness - Domestic Violence Victims - Featuring 'Shame' the movie!!! Ms. Jennifer Irons, CEO/Exec. Writer/Producer of this short film depicting the Male vs. Female relationship. In it you will be quite shocked indeed. I know I certainly was. Fantastically featured as a 'male victim'; we see how one guy just isn't quite sure of the steps he should take or acknowledge that the pain is real.

    We are very blessed to have Ms. Irons and some of her film's cast crew join in with us about how they came up with this idea and just exactly what we can learn as we begin opening the door to this very serious reality.

    The truth is our 'little girls' aren't so precious anymore. They can be just as mean and vindictive as the accused male counterpart. We must see how it begins within our teen's releationships and how we as parents have the ability to help them see deeper then the surface of the issue. We cannot allow our son's or our daughter's to continue in an accepting and tolerating the pattern of these relationships. We have the ability to intervene with the truth and empower all persons trapped in this violence by just being a friend, providing a resource, or helping them find their own path to safety.

    We are a production of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery. You can visit our site and find immediate resources for all victims. In partnership with PLuna Foundation's Male Abuse Awareness Week event we bring you an entire week filled with fabulous interviews. Be a voice together for those who have none. Thanks

    Tonight's focus we hear a incredible Male Survivor. Actually to call him a survivor really doesn't quite say enough about all this guy has been through and how he gives back so much of his empowerment to bring courage and hope for others. Michael Kullik has made his way through healing by his creative talents in singing & poetry. Sadly abuse and sexual violence had been always been a part of his life. He was 38 years old when he jumped into healing with both feet. He knew he had to take back control of his life and that his life meant much more than all the evil others had done to him. It was in this healing path that he had the poem 'In Cabin Six' published in 2000 and then developed Creative Healing via the Arts, Inc and his Facebook group; Circle of Love.

    Remember 'Survivors World' is a broadcast production of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery. This is in no way any from of professional therapeutic or psychological service. We hope to empower your journey of healing while educating society about the deep lasting impact of these types of crimes.
