"Please Help Me Help My Friend, My Son,
My Daughter in an Abusive Relationship."
From the Desk of Dr. Jeanne King, Ph.D.
Dear Family Member and Friend,
Why do people dislike, and often mistrust, victims of domestic abuse?
I think it's because domestic abuse victims fall back on their own word. One day they're telling you how bad he/she is, and the next they are making up excuses for their partner's behavior.
You want so much to help your daughter, your son, your friend...but you know doing so is not easy. In fact, it has already proven to be a pain in the neck.
Yet from the core of your being is a voice that says, "If I don't, who will?" And how about this one: "How will I feel if he kills her (or she kills him)?"
Family and friends of domestic violence survivors struggle with issues around responsibility and ownership. And the dance they do is one of love and frustration.
If your daughter or your son, or your friend is in an abusive relationship, I encourage you to read this page very carefully.
We’ve just met, so let me introduce myself...as you may be wondering, why listen to me?
I have been helping people identify, end and heal from intimate partner violence for nearly a decade. And I serve as a consulting expert on both civil and criminal cases of domestic abuse.
The first book I wrote on the subject, All But My Soul, became a college textbook in criminal justice. Since this time, I’ve published over 100 articles on identifying, ending and healing physical, emotional and verbal abuse.
I am a seasoned psychologist of 27 years. And this background gives me the benefit of understanding the psychosocial dynamics that bind abusive relationships as well as the mechanics of healing relationship abuse.
Knowing "It" from the Inside Out
But all of my knowledge about the dynamics of abusive relationships and healing from partner abuse doesn’t come from the hundreds of books I have read or from the people I have helped. It also comes from the fact that I lived the nightmare of emotional, verbal and physical abuse.
So I know it from the inside out, as well. And I know how hard it is to awaken someone in an abusive relationship. I know what a struggle it is for outsiders to shine the light on the danger that their loved ones live.
I truly understand how important it is for you to help your daughter, your son or your friend recognize their predicament and find solutions when they are struggling with domestic abuse at home and in their intimate relationship. And I know the benefits this will yield to you and to your entire family.

"My son is himself again. He’s not acting like her robot anymore. He’s his old happy open self." (mother of former victim of domestic abuse)
"My daughter left him because she won’t let him treat her like that. We are most grateful for your helping our daughter." (parents of former survivor)
"Sending my sister to the Intimate Partner Abuse Screen® gave us a way to talk about what she couldn't see before." C.M., California
