Surviving Domestic Abuse examines how formal and informal supports and services can mitigate the damaging, and sometimes fatal, social cost of domestic violence. The book highlights victims’ perceptions of supports and lays a foundation for professionals and family members to effectively assist victims of domestic abuse. The book offers actionable recommendations and multiple-use cases to fill gaps in the understanding of the complexities that exist in domestic violence dynamics. Dr Finneran uses real-life interviews with victims to inform action and intervention for policy, strategy and decision-making for support and service providers including law enforcement, healthcare, social services and employers. Identification of successful supports and services can assist in preventing victims from returning to their abusive relationships, and the author provides real-life examples and a sounding board for the voices of real women who have endured domestic abuse. Spanning the gulf between research and practice, this is the ideal book for a range of professional communities including psychologists, social workers and healthcare professionals, and victims and survivors themselves. It’s also suitable for academics and researchers, and students taking domestic violence treatment and prevention courses.

A New York City domestic violence story. I was the victim, an African American male, I was abused for ten years. I have been stabbed over five times by my ex wife. I've been burned with hot tea, water, and coffee. A Jamaican lady used me to obtain a green card. She would eventually leave me and her small children to become a lesbian. My kids found the courage to stand up for me when I didn't have any strength to defend myself. The more I accepted her verbal abuse the more violent she became. I wanted to be a dad and she took advantage of me. In September 2018 my ex broke my front teeth with a frying pan. After my ex abused my daughter for defending me we ran away from home. Me and my three children were abandoned in September 2017 and my ex kept abusing me until I took my kids to a homeless shelter. This journey has been amazing and I hope anybody in a bad relationship will end it after reading my story.

For any survivor of domestic violence who has asked herself "How did this happen to me?" this groundbreaking book provides the answers. The 5 sequential stages that systematically create an abuser are outlined along with the 9 progressive steps a woman must undergo to surrender her power and become conditioned to accept violence. The psychology of abuse is simplified here for victims and their family members to identify the signs of various types of abuse at each of the 5 stages in the newly revised cycle of violence. How community inadvertently plays a role in enabling the abuser provides insight into how the network of therapists, advocates, medial caregivers, legal representatives, and law enforcement can better support and facilitate a victim's process to ultimately break free. The dynamics of abuse within the subset of the Indian Hindu community are explored to shed light on the ramification of cultural biases and the history of the domestic violence movement within the larger South Asian community. The author also shares her own gripping personal story as a survivor of a 7 year abusive marriage and the riveting accounts of other Indian women in their journey to find freedom and overcome the cultural taboo of divorce. This empowering book helps to inspire all victims...freedom is around the corner. Every woman possesses the power to be free.

In recent years the issue of domestic abuse and violence has gained a lot of attention as the extent of it has become known. Domestic abuse and violence is now of high concern to most churches because it is evident that domestic abuse figures are much the same in our churches, and possibly higher in evangelical churches where the headship of men and the submission of women is made the God-given ideal. In this book, Kevin Giles surveys competently the scientific information on this matter now available and notes that the consensus is that the most sure indicator of higher incidences of abuse are found in communities where men are privileged and expected to be in charge and women are subordinated. This, he argues, should make complementarians consider afresh if in fact the subordination of women is the God-given ideal, established in creation before the fall.

When Deborah Thomson met Wayne, she was a shy, introverted 24-year-old student. He was a loud charismatic young man. His temper was an issue but one she hoped they could work on. Four years later, the married couple now ran a business together, and their first child was born. Yet, any dreams of peaceful family life were quickly crushed by Wayne's increasingly violent and controlling behaviour. Life turned into a cycle of hope, fear and pain, and her marriage into a prison from which there was no escaping. It lasted 17 years. Based on the journals the author kept throughout the ordeal, Whose Life Is It Anyway is a chilling memoir of her agonising years living and working with her abuser. "A powerful, frightening story, highlighting a world I do not understand, fortunately a world the author has escaped from." - Ian Waller, Burnie, Tasmania

Recent Studies indicate there are 15.5 million children, in the United States alone, who are living in partner violent homes. 15.5 million children holding their little hands over their ears, clenching their eyes tightly shut, waiting, listening, and barely remembering to breathe. Yes, 15.5 million children living in fear, unable to ask for help, perhaps even too afraid to cry. Victims of domestic violence, child abuse, and sexual assault are hurt on all levels of their lives, with some injuries being easy to recognize in hues of blue and purple, hidden yet known. Other injuries are not so obvious, yet there nonetheless, drilling holes in the heart daily as victims yearn for a real dad, for a sense of safety, and for the pain of his actions to be erased, though it can never be. The chance for the abuser to be a dad is long gone, taken away the first time he beat his wife, the first time he beat his child, and is never again to be known or realized, yet always hoped for. Victims are told by society to “just leave” while it goes unnoticed that victims of domestic violence, including wife battering, child abuse and neglect, and sexual assault, are emotionally frozen in fear. The batterer/abuser has conditioned his victims to believe that if they dare break the vow of silence, if they dare ask for help, if they dare leave the abuser, they will surely be punished. Whether by Bible or fist, the abuser convinces his prey that he is all knowing, and all powerful.In contrast, if ever the abuser is finally held accountable for his actions, he strategically convinces his victims that he 'wouldn't hurt a fly', that it has 'all been a big misunderstanding', he 'thought we were happy' and is 'still shocked to have been served with divorce papers”. These words serve as music to soothe the victims' souls, if only for a moment, and the abusive masquerade of denial begins once more. “If only” becomes the excuse, with each child carrying blame on his small shoulders, or learning to blame little sister, the baby for crying, or Mom for not being brave enough to protect them from the madness, from the madman known as 'dad'. In my case, long after the divorce, holding his wallet in the air the abuser threatened, "you mess with this and I will hurt those kids again.” He then proceeded to ask the court for unsupervised visits, which were granted to begin immediately for four hours per week. Tragically, during each of the few visits which took place, my children were again physically abused by their 'father'. At the final visitation, as my younger son struggled to breathe, suffering from an acute asthma attack, the abuser and his new girlfriend yanked the phone from my children's hands, and the phone line from the wall, before putting the children in the car and delivering them to the end of the driveway before speeding away. This is my story, one of struggle, pain, sadness, and fear. This is my story of courage, strength, and joy. Most importantly, this is my story of love, brought forth for my children, and for the other survivors of abuse, as well as the 15.5 million children who are still trapped in domestic violence, so that we, as survivors of abuse, can begin to relinquish the shame, the blame, and the isolation, which abusers have conditioned us to own.

I had always wanted to be married. However, when I was married I hated it. Really really hated it! He would punch me, and then he would laugh at me when I told him it hurt. Marriage is supposed to be about love and spending the rest of your life with that person. Sometimes though, it doesn't always turn out that way. It's not always easy to tell what kind of person someone will be until it's too late. This story is about trying to survive when life seems to be falling apart, and finding courage to move on when everything seems lost.
