The month of October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Domestic Violence is something that must be addressed as it affects the lives of many. It is something that many do not like to talk about yet many individuals of all ages suffer in silence. Domestic Violence does not discriminate. It is considered a pattern of one trying to dominate or control another person. There are also other factors that may be involved. What makes it domestc is the type of relationship. Domestic Violence is a learned behavior. Children that witness domestic violence can also have scars due to witnessing domestic violence.
Join myself and others as we discuss this topic. With all that we are seeing on the news, in social media and within our homes and communities we must do something. Abuse is not love. If you are a victim of Domestic Violence help is available. One resource is the National Domestic Violence Hotline 800 799-SAFE (7233) If you are the person hurting another there are programs that offer The 52 Week Batterers Intervention Program. Call 211 or seek services within your community. Let's do better. To join in on the conversation call 516 387-1914. Hosted by Jeanette Abney LMFT.
