For October’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I will be writing and sharing postings about abuse and it’s damage.  I encourage each of you to notice the warning signs and report abuse!

Various abuses…
are treated with a shrug…
as many ignore the warning signs…
like dirt pushed under a rug.
For if you don’t see it…
then you can pretend it’s not there…
but in it’s aftermath…
it appears you really didn’t care.

The Trauma of Abuse

An excellent post. What it has to say about the memory disruptions caused by abuse is true.

The Abuse Expose' with Secret Angel

As October’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month comes to a end, I want to share one of the last things that was discussed in a conference recently. Many victims can not remember all that happened or what was said when they experienced the abuses in their lives. But there is a reason… and sadly, many decisions in the courts are based on what victims can recall. More education needs to be done regarding the effects of abuse and domestic violence upon it’s victims. Lives depend on it…

The trauma of abuse…
negatively affects the brain.
And it’s for this reason…
that some memories are not retained.

Stalking in Domestic Violence

Stalking, it’s sick, not funny, and dangerous….

Stalking and the lethality assessment were topics that were presented at a recent domestic violence conference. There is a direct correlation with stalking and the lethal behaviors of these stalkers. Check out this lethality assessment and see where you stand.

Stalking in domestic violence…
is a definite reality.
And it’s an important aspect…
for it’s tied to lethality.
For 1 in 4 victims are abused…
and a high number are killed…
by someone with distorted reality…
of a relationship unfulfilled.
