Default Free speaker on Domestic Violence

Hi I posted something similar on different topics in the general Services Offered sub-forum but didnít feel like suffering through eye rolls on this topic.

Hereís the deal, if you get 20+ people together (keep in mind we are in SoCal so we will go north but please try to make it a bigger group) I will get for free a world class speaker on Domestic Violence to come in and speak to your group. 1 in 4 women in their lifetime will be a victim of domestic violence. K speaks at churches, womenís groups, professional organizations and has spoken to groups in the thousands. Her hope is simply to get the message out there. K is a 22 year decorated veteran of the Palm Springs PD, she specializes in domestic violence and child abuse. The kicker, while she was an officer working DV, she was also a victim of domestic abuse for many many years. She has a Masters in clinical psychology and is currently a doctoral candidate in forensic psychology. She has served on numerous committees and won various awards for her work in child abuse and domestic violence.

If you have a group that would be interested in learning more, I would be happy to get K in there. If you have someone specific in mind that you need to help, 20 people is not a lot to assemble and K is happy to speak in a home setting if that is what it takes to get people to understand what domestic violence looks like and how to help get out. Her talk also helps people understand why people stay, which often makes no sense to those on the outside. DV only escalates so part of her goal is to educate before irreparable violence occurs.

Default Domestic Violence.

This is a serious subject and I know many women who have had problems not only with abuse, but stalkers as well.

Being able to specifically outreach to women on issues that affect them and offer options for them would be something that would help expand our rights.

Sounds like this speaker could be part of a comprehensive outreach to women.

Is this speaker sympathetic to gun rights btw?

Quick add to this oh so important topic - great book by Lundy Bancroft - http://www.amazon.com/Why-Does-He-Th.../dp/0425191656 is a fantastic read and explains so much of what goes on - BUT the point I want to make is that while people want to make laws and punish men - this is not just a man on woman problem and the bottom line is - people who engage in DV - physical, verbal and emotional are generally people with personality disorders and there is no fixing it - they like to play with people and have a master slave mentality. It is truly a sickness and people who get caught up in it generally become trauma bonded. You can read about that here : http://www.mental-health-matters.com...article&id=167 -

Yes, of course I am intimately familiar - many of you ladies may know what a Tarasoff warning is... I received one from the doctor of an ex - I spent 5 years dealing with this - dead rats in my yard, three attempts at taking me hostage... I'd be interested to know who K is and have more information on the approach...

Nicki, The speaker is not a gunny but we are working on that, the rest of the firm IS pro-gun.

Nelly, K is more about the courts and proving the violence in the courts which is nearly impossible in many cases. She is also an expert in violence escalation. In terms of the nuts and bolts of self-protection: guns, dogs, in your case I hope armed guards; K is not the best source of information. Happy to say more.
