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.

As humans, we often neglect a large source of knowledge in our lives. We are taught to pay attention to our thoughts and behaviors, sometimes our emotions. However we often forget that our spirits, thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are all housed in our bodies. Often, if we were to listen to the various sensations of our bodies, we would be able to understand our spirits, thoughts, emotions, and behaviors in a much more profound way. We may even have a better chance at changing our unwanted thoughts, emotions, and behaviors if we would only listen to our bodies’ knowledge. Ironically, in our sexual worlds, where we use our bodies often, we neglect to reflect on all of the knowledge our bodies have to offer. Join Devin Kent and Dr. T as we talk about embodied consensual non-monogamy.
Sometimes it may seem hard to exercise your no in your consensual non-monogamous life. At times, we may have taken one for the team, expecting that our lovers will do the same for us. Other times, we do not know how express our desire for friendship without sex in consensual non-monogamy. Just because we live consensual non-monogamous lives does not mean we have to fuck everyone. Join Devin Kent and Dr. T as we take about exercising our no in our consensual non-monogamous lives. Should you miss this one? No!
One out of every four women in this country will suffer some kind of violence at the hands of her husband or boyfriend, and very few will tell anyone. Victims of this type of cruelty comes from all walks of life--- all cultures, every income group, all ages and all religions.

Tonight you will have te oppurtunity to call into our studio and talk about this topic that should not be talked about, but due to the fact that so many women are constantly losing their lives because of this unexceptable crime, Yes, we find ourselves speaking about it again.

But first we will have the pleasure of chatting with Jasmine Knight, part owner of "Bending Reality Magazine". This queen will be entering our red carpet room on tonight, as she will be sharing her story and endevours with us and the world. Its all about to go down on blog talk radio. Stay tuned in!!!
For years we have heard victims of Domestic Violence say they are staying for the sake of the children. Truth is they're doing their children no favors and expose them to greater harm than they imagine. Join me and my guest Dr. Yvette Kanarick , Psychologist and Author on August 17th, as we discuss attachment and bonding, influences on the behaviors of victims and batterers and the implications of child victims of domestic violence in the long run. The number for the show is 713-955-0734.
“Long term monogamy with a partner of either sex tends to destabilize bisexual identity narratives” - Eadie (1996).
Bisexuality has an interesting place in society. Bisexual individuals get a lot of pressure to live heterosexual lives or homosexual lives, both groups not valuing the bisexual (or queer for that matter) identity. Individuals in the consensual non-monogamous world often see themselves as more accepting of diverse individuals. However, is this true? Is being bisexual in the consensual non-monogamous community "accepted" Join Dr. T and Devin Kent as they discuss bisexuality and the consensual non-monogamous world.
Tonight on Tackling Domestic Violence, Troy Otradovec welcomes Laura from We Are Survivors International to the show. Laura was in an abuse relationship, and she will share her story. Today her and her chlidren are still coping, but taking all the right steps forward. From the words of Laura:
"Two years ago, I left my emotionally and physically abusive husband. It has been an emotional roller coaster but we are two years free and my two children and I are working through the aftershocks of a violent marriage. The effects of one monster's brutal behavior has changed our world, our outlook on life and relationships. We went through hell, but we are working through it and are in a much brighter and safer place now. The three of us will deal with the impact of this for the rest of our lives, however we are survivors and I am hopeful that we will break the cycle."
Domestic Violence affects one in four women, in their lifetime. Over six million children will witness some form of domestic abuse this year. It is time to stop domestic violence one person at a time. Listen in and call the show with your thoughts.
As domestic and sexual abuse awareness grow, the common statement "Why didn't they just leave," still gets mentioned. Matthew Eaton will join the show today and talk about the 13 insidious rules of sexual abuse survivors. Many times we associate abuse with some form of physical abuse. However, the emotional abuse that goes along with the physical abuse can be more harmful, than the bruises. The bruises go away, but the emotional torment can take a long time to go away. Mathew will also share his story, and how he has survived. He now writes and blogs about sexual abuse, and is an advocate to raise awareness.

Penelope Griffith, Founder of Collaborative Solutions for Communities is one of many making a difference.
