    Teen Dating Violence statistics are alarming

    in Current Events

    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.

    Anger: Hypnotherapy and Domestic Violence

    in Health

    This month of November 2015, Nick & Joanna will be talking about Anger; first discussing the perspecive of Ayurveda on this intense and sometimes mysterious and dangerous emotion, and then on the 25th, as it relates to Domestic Violence and how hypnosis can be a  helpful tool for addressing and manging it.

    As with all things in Ayurveda, we go back to the doshas.  Anger is primarily a Pitta emotion (Fire). The fire of Pitta, when out of balance can rage out of control and create havoc emotionally.  And as Ayurveda views all symptoms, we ask the question, what is it telling us; about our physical, mental, emotional and even spiritual well-being? 

    Are there some people who are just prone to an anger response when under stress?  Should anger always be judged as a bad thing? Is it ever justified? What can be done to manage anger from a Vedic perspective?

    We will be talking about these things and more as well as providing some suggestions for keeping that internal fire burning brightly, but not out of control.  

    On the 25th, the focus will be on hypnotherapy as a tool to deal with anger as well as answer all of the questions above, from the perspecive of the hypnotherapist. We will also be focusing on domestic violence as a serious problem in our culture that must be addressed, and what we can do individually and collectively to be a part of the solution. It's more than just raising awareness.

    For years, there’s been a telephone number in Texas that anyone who needs information about domestic violence can call. It’s become the one resource that clinics, shelters, women’s organizations and advocates can post in notices, put on rest room doors, and print on the back of brochures. It has consistently been the go-to number that is the first stop for victims throughout the nation to use when they are seeking help or information about DV.

    This Saturday we are fortunate to have three people who know the Domestic Violence hotline number and organization intimately, and can tell us who calls, what happens when they do, and how this simple phone number has been a godsend for decades.

    Cameka Crawford is the Chief Communications officer at the National Domestic Violence Hotline and its youth-focused program, loveisrespect. Brian Pinero, Chief Programs Officer at the NDVH, and former guest on the show will join us as will Whitney Laas, who oversees the daily operations of The Hotline and loveisrespect's 24/7 crisis chat lines and text messaging service. No one knows more about the history, functioning, and benefits of the national hotline like these three.

    Please join us Saturday to learn more about the national hotline and the kinds of calls that come in each day, and the lasting good a simple phone number can do

    Call-in to share your opinions and questions at (646) 378-0430.

    A Hezekiah Moment About Domestic Violence

    in Christianity

    If you're read my book you'll notice that I've been married twice. I learned a long time ago after marriage that you need to know someone before you marry them, or at least give yourself time to get to know them before you tie the knots. I learned the hard way that my first wife had an anger management problem and when she got mad she would start hitting me. Mind you she didn't do this while we were courting, but it soon came after the I do's. I took this off and on beating, the pushing down the steps, the hitting me upside my head with a glass object for several years until I broke and finally fought back, and then I got into trouble with the law because I had never said anything about her beating me. I said to myself, which was wrong of me that she was only doing it because her father had the same problem and beat her mom years ago before they divorced.  Well I think that's what all victims think or make excuses about.  I myself watched my father abuse my mom too, and made a promise that I would never do that, but I'll admit that after three or four years of that I snapped one time and regretted ever since.  

    The thing I didn't realize is that that seed along with other mess was in me and I didn't even realize it till years later. And when other mess was building up in me, or as Pastor Larry Watkins put it, when Satan slow walked me into my mess, instead of being abused I became the abuser.I'm glad God slowed me down, forgave me and put me here to help others and get the word out that domestic abuse, sexual abuse and all the other abuse is REAL.

    Join me this Friday November 13, 2015 as we Welcome LaQuisha Hall to The Man In The mirror platform and she continues to tell us about her powerful role in helping and educating those who have been through domestic violence and then empowers them to go beyond what they've been through.

    Stop the Violence: End Domestic Violence Part 2

    in Self Help

    This show continues our purpose to bring awareness to the ever growing epidemic of domestic violence in our country and around the world.  

    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. The frequency and severity of domestic violence can vary dramatically; however, the one constant component of domestic violence is one partner’s consistent efforts to maintain power and control over the other.

    Domestic violence is an epidemic affecting individuals in every community, regardless of age, economic status, sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, or nationality. It is often accompanied by emotionally abusive and controlling behavior that is only a fraction of a systematic pattern of dominance and control. Domestic violence can result in physical injury, psychological trauma, and in severe cases, even death. The devastating physical, emotional, and psychological consequences of domestic violence can cross generations and last a lifetime.
