Domestic Violence Awareness and Recognizing the signs

This past Tuesday, the hosts of the Men’s Corner DMV talked to special guest Pamela Hawk as she shared her story on domestic abuse and how it affected her as a mother of 4.

Pamela also shared with us some tips on the warning signs and some things you can do if you are ever in a situation and not sure what to do.

A few of the warning signs:

  • Being alienated from family members
  • Aggressive behavior
  • Controlling behavior
  • Financial control

Remember, domestic abuse can be verbal as well as physical. There are also men who experience domestic abuse.

Data from CDC’s National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS) indicates:

  • About 1 in 4 women and nearly 1 in 10 men have experienced contact sexual violence, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner during their lifetime and reported some form of IPV-related impact.
  • Over 43 million women and 38 million men have experienced psychological aggression by an intimate partner in their lifetime.
