Join us for a Twitter chat about domestic violence, hosted by 30SecondMom.
At the Hotline, we’re here to help you find resources and discuss your options if you are in an abusive relationship. For some victims, those options include taking legal action against their abusive partners.
When abuse is happening in a relationship, it can affect whole families, including children who are witnesses to the abuse and violence. What can you do if your parent is in an abusive relationship?
The recent events and media coverage surrounding Ray Rice and the NFL have created a powerful swell of conversation about domestic violence. While we are outraged at the stories we hear daily at the Hotline, we are heartened by the support of so many people who recognize that there is no excuse for abuse.
September is National Campus Safety Awareness Month, which aims to call attention to issues of campus safety and help young adults learn how to stay safe and help keep others safe, too.
If your partner regularly threatens suicide to get their way or keep you from leaving, this is emotional abuse and there are steps you can take to protect yourself.
In many cases, victims of domestic violence may try to take their pets with them when they are able to leave the relationship, but find that their local domestic violence shelters do not accept pets. Fortunately, this is changing, and shelters for domestic violence and abuse victims are beginning to create spaces for pets.
The truth is that everyone deserves to be cared for, and we all have the power to be our own caregivers.
Therapy can be very effective for some couples who are working through difficult relationship issues. However, if abuse is present in the relationship, we do not recommend that couples seek counseling together.
At the Hotline, we know that domestic violence can affect anyone – including men.
As we’ve been discussing in our Behind the Screens series, mobile devices and computers can become tools for an abusive partner to manipulate, control, and shame a victim. They can also be used to spy.
