Prevent Abusive Relationships Blog is a new addition to our resources. It is intended to serve as a source for insights and wisdom on abuse and healing, best practices for shining the light on domestic abuse, reflections on relevant news and the personal experience of those who encounter intimate partner abuse.

Our focus will be two-fold:

1) What is intimate partner abuse/violence
2) Healing the harm and moving beyond abuse

We welcome your thoughts, feelings and questions as they pertain to abuse, healing and wholeness.

The blog postings by me are a public service for anyone to view.

Comments by individuals, who have taken the Intimate Partner Abuse Screen, can be posted using a username and password which you will receive upon your request via our Contact Us page of this website. Your comments will remain private (not for public viewing) unless you request otherwise.

We appreciate your comments as they serve to stir further thought, discussion and understanding.

Be content and be well,

Dr. Jeanne King
