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.

We are talking with a young lady today about the way she survived Domestic Violence and some of the measures that were taken to ensure her survival. She will also share with us where she is today in life and her pursuites and passions that drive her in the business world. She has started her own non-profit organization to assist women who are in a Domestic Violence situation and while she is building the organization she continues to reach out and help others.
When it comes to Domestic Violence we need to take a second look at the premise of power and control and an even harder look at choice. If you ever witnessed Domestic Violence in the home; if you have always wanted to ask professionals in the field questions that have bothered you for years; then join me and my guest Dr. Yvette Karanick on 8/31/2015 at 7:30 pm as we discuss the issues pertinent to men as it relates to intimate partner violence.

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.
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.
We have all seen or heard about it more than once or twice on the news, but workplace violence and bullying is a issue that's all too real but no one really wants to discuss it until something happens. Please join us this Wednesday we try to gain some type of clarity in terms of the causes, effects, and consequences of workplace violence . Silence with situations like this should never be acceptable.
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. Each of them share the same feelings of helplessness, isolation, guilt, fear and shame. Every one of them hope the violence will never happen again, but in all truths, it doesn't.. 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!!!

In light of the ever growing warlike living conditions across our country a plethora of grass root organizations are coming forward to rectify what seems to be the inevitable. Penelope Griffith, Founder of Collaborative Solutions for Communities is one of many making a difference.
