  Are You a Victim?
  • Are you frightened of  your partner's temper or compliant because you don't want to hurt his/her feelings?
  •  Do you make decisions about activities and friends according to what your partner wants or how he/she will react?
  • Do you have the urge to rescue your partner when your partner is in trouble?
  • Do you apologize to yourself or to others for your partners behavior?
  • Does your partner devalue your opinions, your feelings and your accomplishments?
  • Does he/she assume the right to control how you live and behave? 
  • Do you "walk on egg shells" rehearsing what you will say so as not to set him/her off?
  • Does he/she switch from charm to rage without warning?
  • Is he/she extremely jealous or possessive?
  • Does he/she blame you for everything that goes wrong in the relationship?

 SURVIVAL TIPS:

  • Keep with someone you trust:  a spare set of keys, a set of clothes, important papers, prescriptions and some money.
  • Keep any evidence of physical abuse (ripped clothes, photos of bruises and injuries, etc.)
  • Plan the safest time to get away.
  • Know where you can go for help.  Tell someone what is happening to you.  Keep the phone numbers of friends, relatives and the domestic violence shelter with you.
  • Call the police if you are in danger and need help.
  • If you are injured, go to the hospital emergency room or doctor and report what happened to you.  Ask that they document your visit.
  • Plan with your children and identify a safe place for them---a room with a lock or a neighbor's house where they can go for help.  Reassure them their job is to stay safe, not to protect you!!
  • Arrange a signal with a neighbor, i.e., if the porch light is on call the police.
  • Contact the Salvation Army Domestic Violence & Rape Crisis Program to find out about laws, legal assistance and other resources available to you before you have to use them or during a crisis.....

The program conducts various awareness activities during the year.  We provide community education presentations and Professional Trainings upon request.  Please feel free to contact 850-769-7989 to schedule training for your organization, business or group.
