Part 2 Continuing our talk on domestic violence within Israel ...
Domestic violence is a term used to characterize a pattern of obvious and subtle hash and brash behaviours resulting into physical and psychological abuses between partners in any types of intimate relationships or other members in a household. Domestic violence can be in a cumulative form of physical, emotional, verbal, economic and sexual abuse or any other type of control mechanism to coerce another individual perpetually. Consequences of domestic violence vary from anxiety, dismay, social disconnect, fragile mental state, tension, breakdown mental and unpredictable consequences such as illness, homicide or permanent disfigurement.
Although domestic violence is a punishable crime and a civil wrong in most well developed countries, it is often under-reported for obvious reasons and hard to prove before the consequence of violence has already taken its toll on the victim, who also may act in self-defence or retaliation. This problem is a growing concern for law enforcement everywhere, as it creates inherent problems in the criminal justice system. Therefore, it is within our civil responsibility to the society as well as it is to the state that we address this issue together. We urge people to join the discussion to help shed a light on various perspectives surrounding domestic violence and more on how to encourage victims to talk openly about how to identify and correct the pattern before it escalates. There are help programs for both abusers and victims.

Join hosts Alice Lynch and Sumayya Coleman and show commentator Tonya Lovelace as they bring forward the voices of African American survivors of domestic violence. They will be joined by guests Asia Smith and Lavon Morris-Grant. Studies show that approximately 4 out of every 10 African American women have experienced rape, physical violence, and stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime, about 35% higher than that of white females, and about 2.5 times the rate of women of other races. It is through the voices of survivors that we will best learn how to address this alarming issue in our community. This show is dedicated to hearing the stories of survivors and receiving guidance from them on the best strategies for reaching and serving African American women, their families and their communities.
We here at Taking Shots Radio love women. Love Them! Lately we've been accused of being misogynists (google it). So to stop all that noise we dropped a classic on domestic violence. We tell you what to do to avoid having a hardcore wrestling match with your significant other and then run down the list of a few celebrities that have knuckled up against their spouses!
Join hosts Alice Lynch and Sumayya Coleman, and Research Commentator Shasme Jackson as they speak to Zoe Flowers about the importance of supporting survivors in their recovery from domestic and sexual violence, and various methods that may help with the healing process. The show will also discuss vicarious trauma and ways that it impacts those working in the caring professions.
October is the month most widely acknowledged as NATIONAL BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH. However, another cause which is acknowledged is DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS.
Both of these topics are ones friends and family members would prefer to never have to face or discuss. However, many have found one or both necessary.
Tonight's program invites those who have not only survived but have overcome the sense of darkness and aloneness associated with these circumstances they may have found themselves in.
If your life is or has been impacted, or you are a survivor/ overcomer in either of these situations, please join in tonight's conversation and share your story which may education and/or encourage someone else!

Domestic violence is a heated topic with many different views on what is abuse and how victims should deal with it. Laws have been put in place to have zero tolerance but have they worked the way they were intended and have they created criminals for incidents that should not have resulted in arrest. Is it a problem for just women and why do victims stay so long. Can ABUSERS be changed and if so how. This topic needs more attention and not just for the obvious reasons join us live and share your thoughts
