DOMESTIC VIOLENCE – APPLY WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED


When it comes to domestic/intimate partner violence, spouse abuse or rape crisis intervention, there seem to be enough existing articles and theses written to paper the Grand Canyon. The information available is limitless. Not every piece substantiates others. As if that were not enough to bring confusion to us, the numbers are constantly changing. When … Continue reading

Signs of Possible Molestation


Are you aware that 90% of all children who are sexually abused know their perpetrator? NINETY PERCENT!? That means only 1 of 10 molested children is assaulted by a stranger.

While I do not intend to minimalize that issue, I do want to bring a separate issue to the forefront…One of, if not the foremost, enemies of abuse, molestation or domestic violence is silence! So when it comes to stopping the unacceptable levels of children being molested and/or abused, or victims being physically violated, or killed, DO ASK! And victims? Be sure you are safe, but DO TELL.
