  12. Topic 2 “Why they Stay and Ways to Help”

  13. What I will be Discussing Coming out about an abuser is not an easy task; many decide not to because of : economic reasons, love, low self esteem, fear, abuse is believed to be normal to them, etc. BUT THERE IS HELP!!

  14. Statists In 2011 and 2012, 7.3% women (1.2 million) and 5% men (800,000) report having experienced domestic abuse. 31% women and 18% men have experienced domestic abuse since the age of 16 years. This amounts to 5 million women and 2.9 million men. Domestic violence has repeatedly been identified as a major factor leading to death in or related to pregnancy and childbirth. Domestic violence accounts for 10% of emergency calls. In 2011/12, the police reported nearly 800,000 incidents of domestic violence.

  15. Reasons They Stay Fear: threatened by their partner, they may not feel safe to leave. Believe Abuse is a Norm: my not have had a ‘good example’ of a healthy relationship. Embarrassment: feels its their fault they are being abused, or that they did something wrong Low Self-esteem: is constantly being put down by their partner and after a well believe what they are being accused of is true. Love: hoping that they will change, wants to go back to old times in the begin of the relationship before the abuse. Lack of Money: may not have the financial needs to do for themselves. Immigration Status: may be undocumented and fear that reporting the abuse may cause deportation.

  16. Red Flags of Abusive Behavior Doesn’t take responsibility for own actions Tells you that you are imagining things Physically abuses you Extremely jealous/ possessive Isolates you from your family/friends Seems too good to be true Is obsessed with past relationships Bad past record Makes you feel like your going crazy Monitors your every move Had an abusive childhood Makes threats or ultimatums

  17. Safety Plan Know you abusers red flags: be alert to when your abuser tends to get mad. Identify safe places in the house: avoid small closed in rooms with no ready exits. Establish a code word: so your children, friends or family know your in danger. Practice your escape plan: so you know exactly what to do when the time comes. Make a emergency contact list: people you can trust, that can give you a quick get away or a place to stay.
