Domestic Violence Seminar, “Violence & Abuse,” Session 2 – Part C (10-5-2020) (***NO VIDEO THIS WEEK***): In Session 2, “Explore how to STOP the Cycle of Abuse” & “Establish a Personal Bill of Right” of the “Violence & Abuse” Program, Dr. Dorothy E. Hooks, discusses the following topics:
*The Three “G’s” of Stopping the Cycle of Abuse – Part 2C
For change to come, change must take place. The victim of abuse must remove themselves from the situation in order for help to be received.
*Establish Your Personal Bill of Rights – Part 2C
Now, you will read the Personal Bill of Rights pledge on the next page; it is pertinent for any situation in your life (the Bill of Rights, will be in the complete teaching). It is important to learn your rights as a human being, then don’t allow others to treat you in any way that jeopardizes your rights. The best way to handle any kind of abuse is to remove yourself from the situation and the person who is speaking or acting in a way that demeans who you are.
Domestic violence is not just a secular issue, there are many Christian wives who are also being tormented by an abusive husband. These series of seminars are designed to help domestic violence victims obtain wholeness from physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. This training will also prepare Christian ministers, counselors, and other Christian workers to provide healing to the domestic violence victim.
This is the seventh meeting of the “Violence & Abuse,” Program, and subsequent sessions will be held via Zoom on Mondays at 5:30 pm (Central), 6:30 pm (Eastern), and will continue until all the sessions are complete, which will be May 17, 2021.
