HAPPY FATHER'S DAY! Renewing and Restoring the Institution of Fatherhood
(06/16/2016) Kat Pulver
For over a century, we have been acknowledging Father's Day in the United States. The idea of this observance began in Spokane, Washington in 1910, by Sonora Smart Dodd, a daughter who wanted to acknowledge the courage and selflessness of her father, Henry Jackson Smart, and to let him know how special he was to her. This action was later followed by President Coolidge proclaiming the third Sunday in June as Father's Day. It was subsequently established as a permanent national observance in 1972 by President Nixon. So the tradition of honoring and celebrating our paternal parental figure began and launched with a heartfelt yell of HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!

Child's Play in Violent Families
(06/09/2016) Tim Hamilton
Children are impacted by violence that happens in their environment. They are most negatively impacted by violence between those they love in their immediate or extended families. Even when this violence is happening while they are still in the womb, they are still affected by it. Children are much more susceptible to emotional currents in the air than are adults.

National Day of Prayer
(05/04/2016)
Domestic Violence continues to be an issue that affects our communities, our families and our congregations, yet oftentimes goes unnoticed or ignored. Some victims and survivors are left with the shame and embarrassment that comes from being victimized, and many do not always find the support they need to move forward in their lives. Faith Leaders have the opportunity to speak to their followers, to encourage them, and to offer messages of healing and restoration.

Through the Eyes of a Volunteer
(04/13/2016)
When the phone rings, your mind kicks back to all the hours you completed to become a volunteer advocate against domestic violence. You completed all the hours of training available, you read through all the material the agency offered you, and you listened to real life testimonies of women who overcame the obstacles of living with domestic violence. In other words, you prepare to answer the hotline where someone, somewhere in the city of Las Vegas needs help because domestic violence just became a violent—if not deadly—life event.

Intimate Partner Violence in LGBTQ Relationships
(06/01/2015) Leah M. Brooks, MSW
No matter what the setting, be it work, school, or home, healthy relationships are key to a healthy lifestyle. Especially when we consider intimate relationships. What does a healthy relationship look like? For starters, sexual orientation is not a determining factor in a healthy relationship. No matter the gender or orientation, relationships that involve love and intimacy should never hurt. Healthy relationships are centered on respect and equality. Equality does not always mean an even 50/50 split of affection and responsibilities. Equality refers to each partner having equal say in how a relationship functions and it ensures that each partner is having their needs met.

I feel as if I might be losing my mind… Am I going crazy?
(05/05/2015)
The simple response to that question is: probably not. However, if you have experienced intense emotional pain and fear at the hands of someone who promised to love and cherish you, you may very well feel that way, and it is normal. If someone has been hurting you, (emotionally or physically) it’s likely you’ve experienced some level of trauma. Major types of trauma include: natural disasters (Hurricane Katrina), mass interpersonal violence (Boston marathon), car accidents, war, rape, partner battery, and child abuse.

The Importance of Self Care
(03/03/2015)
Self-care is a simple concept, yet for many of us, it can be incredibly difficult in practice. It is especially challenging for victims and survivors of abuse, who are often made to feel like they are not worthy of love or care. But the truth is that everyone deserves to be cared for, and we all have the power to be our own caregivers. That’s what self-care is all about; taking care of yourself in ways that feel best to you, focus on your own health and well-being, and bring you comfort.

Safety Planning
(03/02/2015)
Personal safety is the most important thing for anyone in a coercive or physically abusive relationship. If you have managed to keep yourself and your children safe thus far you have courage and resourcefulness that you may not give yourself credit for. If you are working with victims and survivors remember that they’ve kept themselves relatively safe and alive thus far so most often they will be the best person to outline a safety plan for themselves and their children.
