DO RELIGIONS HELP OR HINDER DOMESTIC VIOLENCE VICTIMS?
Popular televangelist Pat Robertson recently advised a child who wrote in asking what to do when his father waves a gun around the mother when they fight. With all apparent concern and sincerity, the TV preacher told the child, “you don’t want to get your father busted,” and that instead of calling the police, the child should tell his mother to tell the father to get help. Huh?? This man clearly has no business giving out advice about domestic violence when he so clearly has no grasp of what it is nor how to handle it. Unfortunately, the young listener isn’t the only one who is getting dicey and dangerous advice about DV.
So is Robertson typical of the religious stance on domestic violence? Are women being given advice by their clergy that is wrong, harmful, lacking in understanding of what DV is? Unfortunately, some women are. The good news is that some clergy have the knowledge, understanding and common sense to really help in these situations.

THE POLICE AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE- MORE THAN ARRESTS
You’ve heard about mandatory arrest in domestic violence cases – somebody is going to jail if you call the police, right? What about dual arrests? Do police have special training for DV? How do they decide who is the perpetrator? Who makes decisions about police training and actions in these cases?
All these questions and more will be covered by Margaret Alquist, MSW, MPA, when she joins us Saturday to talk about correction departments and domestic violence. Margaret is currently a presentence writer for sex offenders and also DV lead. She has been involved in domestic violence issues for the Washington State Department of Corrections and is responsible for developing and implementing a DV policy, curriculum, and training for DOC staff. Margaret started out her DV career as a community-based DV advocate with New Beginnings. She also served as a crisis social worker for Oahu Hawaii’s child protection system. Margaret is an active member of the King County DV and Child Maltreatment Coordinated Response Oversight Committee and has participated over the last ten year in an East King County collaborative on DV coordinated response. So let’s talk police and domestic violence!

It’s recorded that every 9 seconds in the U.S a woman is assaulted or beaten. With those statistics that would bring us to almost 7 women a minute which is insane. It’s also recorded that a man is severely assaulted by his wife or girlfriend every 14.6 seconds. Relationships will go through their challenges but when it becomes violent it ignites so much other dynamics; Children are affected, mental and physical damage, and sometimes death in the end. This is a serious issue that sadly takes the lives of up to three women a day in this country.
TUNE IN for a heavy one!
