TAKING BACK LIFE TO LIVE AGAIN!

WE BUILD BRIDGES

Life happens and can spin a family out of control.  Without education and support, families can find themselves in very complicated situations with little or no options, that makes life impossible and damaging to the children of the household.

VIOLENT ABUSE is defined as the different assaults on a person:

1. Physical Abuse
2. Psychological Abuse (Malicious Coercive Control, Targeting & Manipulation)
3. Emotional Abuse
4. Sexual Abuse
5. Reproductive Abuse
6. Financial Abuse
7. Digital Abuse

Domestic violence (also called intimate partner violence (IPV), domestic abuse or relationship abuse) is a pattern of behaviors used by one partner to maintain power and control over another partner in an intimate relationship.” Domestic Abuse Hotline

There are different types of people that abuse for different reasons.  Those that abuse and are abused need intervention and the unhealthy dynamics need to be addressed and integrated.

Malicious harm to another for personal gain is a different type of abuse then a person that is out of control or uses power to control. Malicious dynamics have to be handled differently by professionals specially trained in malignant personality dynamics.  The primary goal is have resources to identify the relationship dynamics, identify the psychological abuse, diagnose, and set a treatment plan.

All members of a family need help and intervention with the goal to improve the family dynamic for the wellbeing of the children and parents (best option), or find a workable solution that is conscious and authentic protecting children, parents and families.

Trauma results from any of the Violent Abuses.  Thus, intervention and ultimately prevention is recovery from the trauma, to stop the violent abuse cycle.
