Q: 

domestic Violence/Interview

A: 1)How do you feel about domestic violence, do you think it is good/bad and why? I, personally, feel that all domestic violence is bad.  I don"t think that violence, in any form, is ever the answer to any problem.  The real issue is that domestic violence is not only about abuse, it is about control.  Most often the batterer becomes abusive when something is not going in the direction that they feel it should go. 2)Who is the main offender in most cases of domestic violence? In approximately 90%-95% of cases the batterer is a man, the victim is a woman 3)Have you dealt with a lot of domestic violence cases? Without revealing any details ?...


Q: 

Difference in domestic Violence and Anger

A: Dear Jenny,    Hi Jenny, thankyou for taking the time to choose me to help you with the issues that you currently have.  Well, to start off, domestic violence isn"t just intense violence where someone has to go to the hospital.  Anytime that someone physically puts their hands on you to harm you without you giving them permission is considered domestic violence.  Pushing, slapping, spitting, kicking, shoving, throwing, choking, pulling, pulling hair, punching, beating, etc., those are all considered instances of domestic violence.  domestic violence is not always extreme or severe.  If someone has pushed you, that is...


Q: 

What Is a domestic Abuse Hotline?

A: The purpose of a domestic abuse hotline is to provide information to those who are in an abusive relationship. Phone counselors at these crisis hotlines can help with safety planning and provide referrals to local agencies that may be able to assist with food, shelter, or other needs if the caller wishes to leave the relationship. This is especially important for victims of domestic violence who have small children still living at home. With so much information freely available online, it''s tempting to question why domestic abuse hotlines are still needed. Since many domestic violence victims have their computer use monitored or live in homes without Internet...

Q: 

Bipolar disorder leading to domestic Violence

A: Bipolar Disorder does not lead to domestic violence as much as it can occur along next to domestic violence, if that makes sense.  Meds and therapy can only do so much with the bipolar disorder symptoms, it"s important for you to recognize that they will never be an absolute and complete fix.  As for their ability to help with the domestic violence part...that all depends on your husband.    Having been in a relationship with someone who is also bipolar (and being bipolar myself), with severe domestic violence being committed by him for the better part of the 8 years of our relationship (one thing that I think is important to note is that he...


Q: 

domestic Violence questions

A: Dear La"Tasha, I will do my best to answer your questions. 1.  I"m not sure what you mean by a lot, but I"ve dealt with my fair share of them 2.  The most common thing I see in both verbal and physical abuse is that the abuser takes little or no responsibility for his/her actions and the victim allows the abuse and has poor self esteem. 3.  My best advice is to get to a counselor as soon as possible and if that doesn"t work, get out of the relationship. 4.  domestic violence is terrible.  At its root is a lack of honor and respect for people at a most fundamental level.  Everyone deserves to be treated with respect. 5.  In most cases, the male is the most common offender.  There are a smaller percentage of cases...


Q: 

domestic Violence

A: Hi Amber, It does not matter whether the offending violent perpetrator is a woman or a man, the same rules should apply. Violence should never be tolerated or minimized in any relationship. I would give the same advice to a man that I would give to a woman. When you are involved with someone, if that person is ever violent in any way, you leave, period. The issue is that laws in this country are way too lenient. I think that the laws should be tougher for violent offenders of both sexes. If people would act normal and get their acts together, maybe violence can be reduced, because it will never be eradicated. Although I have my own beliefs, with therapy, some people may be capable of change from exhibiting violence in the past, but I would never hold my breath on that one. I hope...


Q: 

Issues of domestic Violence

A: Hello Patricia: I thank you for your inquiry. I am terribly sorry for your suffering at the hands of your husband. But I believe you are doing the right thing by not returning to your home. Your questions basically deal with legal issues that have to do with the court system. I am not a lawyer so I am unable to answer your legal questions.

Now with regard to your housing issue. Hmm I imagine Safe Horizon has been receiving a lot of...


Q: 

parenting after domestic violence

A: Greetings, I am very sorry that you and your daughter are having to go through this struggle. You mentioned that you contacted the domestic violence hotline and I think that that was a good move.  It would be very helpful right now for you to have what is called an advocate.  An advocate can walk you through this whole process, and unfortunately it is a process. It sounds like you are handling it as best as it can be handled. For one thing you are gathering all of the information that you can and more than that you are surviving every day. You asked me about books or sites for parenting teens. Parenting teens from can be challenging at best for any teen but add in divorce and domestic violence...
