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.
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.

In the wake of the tragedy where Reality TV Star lawyer Loredana Nesci, Esq. was murdered by her boyfriend Robert Reagan, we feel it is important that we discuss domestic violence. The signs, the symptoms, the forms, the problem. Many times people do not realize that they are being abused because the abuse takes the form of emotional abuse. No abuser starts off with physical abuse; it is a progression. First it starts with emotional abuse.
Listen in to the show to learn more about domestic violence.
