By pretending to order pizza, while actually calling 911, an Ohio woman was able to help police catch the man hitting her mother.

29 Reasons Why Play is So Important During Times of Crisis and Stress | PlaygroundEquipment.com

Very important info. from our sister program, Family Services Counseling!

When a child’s environment is stressful and confusing, they often naturally turn to play to help self-soothe, gain a sense of control, and sort out their emotions. A child’s play provides a powerful, resilient tool for cultivating peace, confidence, and empathy. These qualities can help children...

Your voice speaks volumes. So, let it be heard! Come and participant in a quick research study about trauma and attachment. Recruitment is currently open.

Reach Out To the father of his father's father... for it's he who taught his son.... that when...in life...words weren't enough... his fists could overcome... his feelings of insecurity... the anger and rage inside... the notion that somehow force... could protect his childish pride. Through all the years...of anguish and tears... round and round the carousel... again he passed his legacy of pain... his inheritance of hell... to another generation... of men who will never be men... because as he has done to his son... so his son will do again. Animals act on instinct... but only the lowest ones... abuse the family around them... the time has finally come... to show these pathetic creatures... for the cowards they really are... today...gathered here together... we are just the tiniest part... of the huge and growing movement... that is demanding an immediate end... to the tolerance of any abuse... by these animals who think they are men. Fear has kept this lady... from leaving and living her life... isolation has insured him... that she would remain his wife. Love for her innocent children... has forced her to quietly endure... the pain both mental and physical... hoping someday she might find a cure... for whatever it was that changed... the man she loved back when... to the monster who now holds her captive... as he loves her then hits her again. She need but look around... at the army that is gathering before her... to see the power she has gained... through the millions of those who support her. Now she will never be alone... if she should decide to go... now there's a legion of friends... who will help her because they know... just exactly what she is feeling... because they've been there themselves... they've known the terror and uncertainty... the fear of asking for help. So here we are today to offer another solution... we can change the way it is... to how it will be in the future. United we can tell the father... and the father's father before him... it’s his turn to be afraid... because now the laws won't ignore him. This crime will never again... be called just a family matter... next time he raises his fist... to slap, beat...or batter... the lady he promised to love... the love he promised to protect... we promise this lady today... we will never again reject... her pleas for understanding... her fear of leaving her home... her fear of losing her children... her feelings of being alone. All of us here today vow to stand beside you... if you decide to leave... we’ll be there to guide you. All of us here today... vow to change the laws... that have always up till now... ignored the problem because... up till now we've been hiding... like the ostrich with his head in the sand up till now...pretending... we didn't know...so we couldn't understand. But finally...it's out in the open... it's time for the cowards to run there's an army of angry people... and the battle has just begun. How dare you beat the ones who love you... just because you can. from now on...we promise you this... each time you raise your hand... you will hear such a cry... such a blood curdling scream... from the millions of people all over the world... who have lived that horrible dream. You’ll never again be allowed... to think that you have the right... to raise your fist to anyone... because of some stupid fight. It's a shame it took so much pain... to finally see the way... maybe...at last....it’s coming to an end... as all of us join here today... to promise each and every woman... with bruises and broken bones... reach out...and we will be there... and you will never, ever...again be alone. co 1999 skybird pub co james bruce joseph sievers
I am a survivor of domestic violence for over three and a half years. I was in the Beloit domestic violence Center in Janesville. I have spoken for them a few times so that others know they can survive this too!!!
