"I was always on guard"--an exploration of woman abuse in a group of women with musculoskeletal pain. (1/234)

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to explore experiences of abuse of women, and the way it was described and hinted at, in a group of women suffering from biomedically undefined long-term musculo-skeletal pain (UMSD). METHOD: Twenty women patients participated. Data were gained through repeated semi-structured interviews conducted over 2 years and qualitatively analysed according to grounded theory. RESULTS: Eleven participants had experienced abuse. Abuse was difficult to disclose due to shame, fear of the listener's preconceptions and fear of the abuser. In the interviews it was diminished, 'sugar-coated' and renamed. However, the women gave hints of abuse before avowing it. 'An understanding listener', who was expected to apprehend the hints, ask about abuse and confirm that it was valid to talk about it, was described as a precondition for disclosure. CONCLUSION: This study suggests that it is important to explore woman abuse when investigating and treating UMSD. When there are hints of abuse, one should avoid blaming, stand by, be patient and ask about abuse even if the woman has once negated it. Fear of the abuser permeated the narratives and it is therefore suggested that doctors must consider carefully the danger involved.  (+info)

Domestic violence in northern India. (2/234)

This study examined the prevalence and characteristics of wife abuse as reported by nearly 6,700 married men living in five districts of northern India during 1995-1996. In addition, associations between wife abuse and sociodemographic factors were investigated to enable two theoretical/conceptual perspectives regarding abuse to be evaluated: that abuse is more common among families under stress and among more "private" families. The district-specific percentages of men who reported physically abusing their wives ranged from 18% to 45%, with 18-40% of the men in each district having had nonconsensual sex with their wives and 4-9% having physically forced their wives to have sex. The authors used logistic regression analyses to control for a variety of sociodemographic variables and found positive associations between wife abuse and stress-related factors, including the husband having a low educational level, the couple living in poverty, the husband being young when he first lived with his wife, and the couple having multiple children. Contrariwise, there was no strong empirical support for the idea that wife abuse may be more common in more "private" families.  (+info)

Women battering in primary care practice. (3/234)

BACKGROUND: The organization of health care system to emphasize managed care has placed the primary care provider in an ideal position to assess the impact of intimate partner violence (IPV) on the health of women. Primary care practice provides a setting in which women can develop an ongoing relationship with their health care provider in which they feel safe to discuss IPV and possible options to improve their lives. Women's health and safety could be dramatically improved if primary care providers were prepared to assess, intervene and appropriately refer women who are in violent relationships. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this article is to describe the prevalence of intimate partner violence in primary care populations and review the known physical, mental health and pregnancy consequences of abuse as well as discuss the implications of intimate partner violence on primary care practice.  (+info)

Physical and nonphysical partner abuse and other risk factors for low birth weight among full term and preterm babies: a multiethnic case-control study. (4/234)

This study sought to determine the risk of low birth weight from intimate partner abuse. The case-control design was used in a purposively ethnically stratified multisite sample of 1,004 women interviewed during the 72 hours after delivery between 1991 and 1996. Abuse was determined by the Index of Spouse Abuse and a modification of the Abuse Assessment Screen. Separate analyses were conducted for 252 full term and 326 preterm infants. The final multiple logistic regression models were constructed to determine relative risk for low birth weight after controlling for other complications of pregnancy. Physical and nonphysical abuse as determined by the Index of Spouse Abuse were both significant risk factors for low birth weight for the full term infants but not the preterm infants on a bivariate level. However, the risk estimates decreased in significance in the adjusted models. Although today's short delivery stays make it difficult to assess for abuse, it is necessary to screen for domestic violence at delivery, especially for women who may not have obtained prenatal care. The unadjusted significant risk for low birth weight that became nonsignificant when adjusted suggests that other abuse-related maternal health problems (notably low weight gain and poor obstetric history) are confounders (or mediators) that help to explain the relation between abuse and low birth weight in full term infants.  (+info)

Knowledge and attitudes of primary care physicians regarding battered women. Comparison between specialists in family medicine and GPs. (5/234)

BACKGROUND: Domestic violence is a widespread public health problem and an important part of primary care practice. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the approach of primary care physicians (family physicians and GPs) to the care of battered women. METHODS: A self-report questionnaire containing items about experience, knowledge and attitudes regarding the care of battered women was mailed to a random sample of 300 primary care physicians employed by the two major health management organizations in Israel. The population included family physicians, who have 4 years of residency training in primary care, and GPs, who do not undergo specialization after completing their medical studies. RESULTS: A total of 236 physicians (130 family physicians and 106 GPs) responded. In general, the physicians had had very little exposure to the problem and estimated its prevalence in the community as less than half that indicated in the medical literature. Compared with the GPs, however, the family physicians reported more exposure to the subject (P < 0.001) and had better knowledge of its prevalence and risk factors (P < 0.001). They also showed a greater tendency to view the problem as universal (P < 0.05) and as part of their professional responsibilities. However, both groups tended not to include the care of battered women with no physical injury within their professional duties. CONCLUSIONS: Physicians should be made more aware of the problem of battered women within the context of their routine professional practice and of the importance of keeping abreast of the subject. Educators should place more emphasis on imparting knowledge and skills in the management of battered women, especially for GPs.  (+info)

Sheltered versus nonsheltered homeless women differences in health, behavior, victimization, and utilization of care. (6/234)

OBJECTIVE: To contrast sociodemographic characteristics, physical and mental health status, substance use, sexual behaviors, victimization, and utilization of health services between homeless women residing in sheltered and non-sheltered environments. DESIGN: Cross-sectional survey. A structured scale was used to measure mental health status. Physical health status, substance use, sexual behavior, history of adult victimization, and health services utilization were measured by content-specific items. SETTING: Shelters (N = 47) and outdoor locations in Los Angeles. PARTICIPANTS: One thousand fifty-one homeless women. RESULTS: Homeless women living on the streets were more likely than sheltered women to be white and longer-term homeless. Controlling for sociodemographic characteristics, multiple logistic regression analyses revealed that unsheltered women had over 3 times greater odds of fair or poor physical health, and over 12 times greater odds of poor mental health than sheltered homeless women. They were also more likely than sheltered women to report using alcohol or noninjection drugs, to have multiple sexual partners, and to have a history of physical assault. About half of the overall sample reported utilization of a variety of health services; however, unsheltered homeless women were less likely to utilize all of the health services that were assessed, including drug treatment. CONCLUSIONS: There is a critical need for aggressive outreach programs that provide mental health services and substance abuse treatment for homeless women on the streets. Comprehensive services that also include medical care, family planning, violence prevention, and behavioral risk reduction may be particularly valuable for homeless women, especially those living in unsheltered environments.  (+info)

Fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) primary prevention through fas diagnosis: II. A comprehensive profile of 80 birth mothers of children with FAS. (7/234)

A 5-year, fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) primary prevention study was conducted in Washington State to: (1) assess the feasibility of using a FAS diagnostic and prevention clinic as a centre for identifying and targeting primary prevention intervention to high-risk women; (2) generate a comprehensive, lifetime profile of these women; (3) identify factors that have enhanced and/or hindered their ability to achieve abstinence. The results of this study are presented in two parts. Objective 1 is summarized in the preceding paper and objectives 2 and 3 are summarized here. Comprehensive interviews were conducted with 80 women, who had given birth to a child diagnosed with FAS, to document their sociodemographics, reproductive and family planning history, social and healthcare utilization patterns, adverse social experiences, social support network, alcohol use and treatment history, mental health, and intelligence quotient (IQ). These high-risk women were diverse in racial, educational and economic backgrounds, were often victims of abuse, and challenged by mental health issues. Despite their rather harsh psychosocial profile, many demonstrated the ability to overcome their alcohol dependence over time. Relative to the women who had not achieved abstinence, the women who had achieved abstinence had significantly higher IQs, higher household incomes, larger more satisfactory social support networks, were more likely to report a religious affiliation, and were more likely to be receiving mental health treatment for their mental health disorders. The rate of unintended pregnancies and alcohol-exposed pregnancies was substantial. Key barriers to achieving effective family planning were maternal alcohol and drug use, lack of access to birth control and lack of support by their partner to use birth control. A FAS diagnostic and prevention clinic can be used to identify women at high risk for producing children damaged by prenatal alcohol exposure. Primary prevention programmes targeted to this population could lead to measurable reductions in the incidence of FAS.  (+info)

The association between violence victimisation and common symptoms in Swedish women. (8/234)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association between violence and abuse suffered by women during childhood or adult life, and the manifestation of a high level of common physical and mental symptoms. DESIGN, SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: A questionnaire was sent to a random population of women, 40 to 50 years of age, living in a rural Swedish community. The response rate was 81.7 per cent (397 women). Odds ratios were used to estimate bivariate associations between the experience of violence/abuse and common symptoms. Multiple logistic regression analyses were used to test for confounding and effect modification. MAIN RESULTS: The experience of violence or abuse during childhood was reported by 32.2 per cent of the women, while 15.6 per cent reported being abused as an adult. In both cases, these experiences reached statistical significance in their association with a high level of common symptoms (OR=1.67; 95% CI 1. 08, 2.49 and OR=2.26; 95%CI 1.30, 3.92, respectively). The associations between childhood and as well adult experience of violence or abuse and common symptoms were largely independent of potential confounders such as unemployment, job strain, social support, and sense of coherence. The combined exposure to adult violence/abuse and low psychosocial coping resources, such as low social support or a low level of sense of coherence, considerably increased the odds ratio for common symptoms and a synergistic effect seemed to exist. CONCLUSION: Violence or abuse experience is an important factor when considering illness manifestations in terms of common symptoms in women 40 to 50 years of age.  (+info)

It is not just the harrowing decision to leave that becomes challenging, but the emotional battlefield you find yourself on once the decision is made. The important kudo is that you know you must leave or you already have left. Making that decision is the most important self-nurturing decision you can make.. Victims decide to leave for many reasons and in many ways. Some find support in the community, famly or friends and others find support online. Some victims may have to seek shelter and relocate to stay safe. What remains paramount is learning new tools to place in your life toolbox so that you can emerge feeling free and loving yourself.

Ditto here. Dismaying is absolutely right. Ive been beating in the street on more than one occasion by my abuser with him focusing on bashing my face in and choking me. Nobody did a damn thing to help. No one even call the cops. I know because afterwards we sat at the near by bus stop for over a half an hour. (I was beaten because my dawdling fat ass made us late.) I could have easily kept a photo journal like this (if I had the money for a camera) because he didnt care if he was caught on tape doing anything. It never mattered. Even the times when I called the cops and the police took photos - he was release over and over usually the next day on a plea deal. Not to mention the bolster he got from cops with their talk of sorry guy its the law one of you has to go to jail and shes the woman. People with believe her over you no matter what.

How awful it was to learn so late in life of the manipulations of my own parents whom I had trusted and believed. How hurtful it was to have not had the opportunity to be closer to my own sister in growing up. But it could never have been an environment conducive towards either of us gravitiating towards each other anyway. My sister is 13 years older than I and so when I was 5 years old and starting kindergarten, she was 18 and entering college. With the abusive relationship both verbally and physically in the house she tried to spend as little time as possible at home. My mother would never admit to the abuse and would simply chastise herself as deserving what she got. She was the martyr of the family and would deny any wrongdoings of abuse if it were brought forth. And bringing it up to social services would have only enraged my father further which would see the abuse become worse. So the lesser of the two evils was to do nothing unless my mother complained - but she never did ...

Page 2 of 3) IPv6 Standards. IPv6 represents the first major change to the Internet Protocol since IPv4 was formalized in 1981. For many years, its core operation was defined in a series of RFCs published in 1998, RFCs 2460 through 2467. The most notable of these are the main IPv6 standard, RFC 2460 (Internet Protocol, Version 6 (IPv6) Specification), and documents describing the two helper protocols for IPv6: RFC 2461, which describes the IPv6 Neighbor Discovery Protocol, and RFC 2463, which describes ICMP version 6 (ICMPv6) for IPv6. In addition to these, two documents were also created in 1998 to discuss more about IP addressing: RFC 2373 (IP Version 6 Addressing Architecture) and RFC 2374 (An IPv6 Aggregatable Global Unicast Address Format). Due to changes in how IPv6 addressing was to be implemented, these were updated in 2003 by RFC 3513 (Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) Addressing Architecture) and RFC 3587 (IPv6 Global Unicast Address Format).. Many other RFCs define more specifics of ...
There are three types of IPv6 addresses and each address type can be classified by the part of the network over which it is valid. In addition, there is an address type used in the transition from IPv4 to IPv6. As in the case of IPv4, a network interface may support multiple addresses at the same time. It may support addresses of each of the various types and may support multiple addresses of the same type.. IPv6 address types. Unicast: Unicast addresses are identical to IPv4 unicast addresses. A packet sent to a unicast address will be received by only one network node.. Multicast: Multicast addresses are used in the same way as multicast addresses in IPv4. Multicast was added to IPv4 after the basic address formats were designed. The result is that multicast addresses are confined to a very limited portion of the IPv4 address space. In IPv6, the multicast format will provide ample space for multicast addresses.. Anycast: Anycast addresses are new in IPv6. They are shared by multiple nodes. A ...
Violence against women is pandemic; globally 30% of women have experienced intimate partner violence. A review of literature indicated that even though intimate partner violence is a major public health issue, the health sector has been slow to respond, firstly by not identifying and responding to it in womens health consultations, and secondly by poor data collection. Emergency departments see a minority but important sector of women exposed to intimate partner violence: women most heavily abused by a partner. This thesis starts from a position, based on previous research in the field, that often when women attend an emergency department after an assault by their partner, their experience of intimate partner violence is missed. Framed by the sociology of diagnosis, the focus of this thesis is the (mis)dassification of intimate partner violence in hospital-based emergency department heath systems. This thesis was positioned ontologically and epistemologically through a synthesis of critical ...
Relationship violence occurs at every socioeconomic level and across all age-groups, but women in their early 20s living in economically disadvantaged urban communities are especially vulnerable. Nonfatal intimate partner violence peaks during late adolescence and young adulthood,1,2 and women living in poverty are more likely to be victimized by intimate partners than are more affluent women.3,4 Intimate partner violence has frequently been examined in terms of its impact on reproductive health.

AU - Wilson, Janet Sullivan. AU - Kelen, Gabor D. AU - Campbell, Jacquelyn C. PY - 2017/1/1. Y1 - 2017/1/1. N2 - Purpose: Because identification of intimate partner violence (IPV) in health care settings is low and strangulation increases lethality risk among women experiencing IPV, we examined the prevalence and correlates of nonfatal strangulation among 1,008 women survivors of IPV. Methods: Trained researchers conducted semistructured interviews with women survivors of IPV referred by police. Multinomial logistic regression examined differential correlates of attempted, completed, and multiple strangulation. Results: Interviews were conducted with 71.14% of eligible women contacted by researchers. A high proportion (79.66%) of the women interviewed experienced attempted (11.70%), completed (30.16%), ...

Objectives: Intimate partner violence (IPV) during pregnancy is a serious public health issue, and warrants special attention on assessing neighborhood and family contexts, which might provide rich targets for health promotion intervention. Neighborhoods may experience higher IPV rates because of contextual or compositional reasons. Recent contextual studies on IPV have focused on individual characteristics of victims and all women rather than pregnant women; only some used multilevel analysis, were small in size, and relied on police reports or ...

Background Intimate partner violence against women (IPV) has been identified as a serious public health problem. In total, 931 questionnaires were returned; 597 by nurses (59.7% response rate) and 328 by physicians (32.8% response rate). Overall, 32% of nurses and 42% of physicians reported routinely initiating the topic of IPV in practice. Principal components analysis identified eight constructs related to whether routine inquiry was conducted: preparedness, self-confidence, professional supports, abuse inquiry, practitioner consequences of asking, comfort following disclosure, practitioner lack of control, and practice pressures. Each construct was analyzed according to a number of related TG 100801 Hydrochloride IC50 issues, including clinician training and experience with woman abuse, area of practice, and type of health care provider. Preparedness emerged as a key construct related to whether respondents routinely initiated the topic of IPV. Conclusion The present study provides new ...

Chronic illnesses (eg HIV/AIDS, cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimers, etc) can cause tension, stress and a range of other problems within a relationship but they do not cause domestic violence.

Though a large body of research has investigated the impacts of domestic violence on adult’s  victims, only few studies has been devoted to the exposure of children’s to probable inter-spousal trauma that disrupts their neurological and biochemical pathways in development. The aim of this paper is to analyze the current empirical research that discusses the biological and psychological inference of domestic violence and risky family environment on children’s health. In realizing this objective, the paper used the ecological framework to explain the interaction effects of bio- psychological processes on emotional regulation and social competence skills of children living in a domestic violence and risky family environment. Finally, study shows that a risky and harsh early family environment exacerbates disturbances in children’ physiological and neuroendocrine responses to stress, and also has long-term adverse implication on their mental health.   Key words:

Many abuse survivors have a high level of resilience as well as a pain threshold that could rival a sumo wrestler or someone walking on hot coals without so much as a grimace. Even if you feel like you can deal with further abuse even after the break-up, consider that this is truly a life or death situation. If you are escaping from a physical abuser, this affirmation hits home. Yet even if youre coming out of an emotionally abusive relationship, it also holds weight. I know many might not think of emotional violence as a life or death situation, but considering the suicides that occur from bullying and domestic violence and the fact that domestic violence survivors are actually at a higher risk of committing suicide, it is truer than we think. Each time we sacrifice our peace of mind for one more hit of the abuse rather than detoxing from the relationship, we also belittle, demean and abuse ourselves. These incidents build up collectively to reenact the same sense of hopelessness we had ...

But we know that friends and family members dont respond well. If you listen to some of the talks on Healthtalk youll hear that actually sometimes friends and family members were confused, they didnt know what it was they could do to help or they gave lots of advice or they suggested the woman leave when perhaps she wasnt at the stage where she was able to leave. And we know from what women say that actually those kind of things are quite un-helpful. Women want to be believed, they want to know that theyre going to be supported in the decisions theyre making - and they are quite complex decisions to make about whether to leave, when to leave, how to go about doing that, how to stay in touch with the person whos been abusive, particularly if theyve got children, thats something that has to happen. They want to be able to continue to communicate with their friends and family members but perhaps not to be obviously asked about whats going on and to be reminded of the situation. They ...

My choice of a Praxis project came about in a roundabout way. Earlier in the semester, I was worried about an individual who was in an abusive relationship and she ended up leaving with her children. She spent some time with other friends until she got her restraining order and was able to find some resources to help her get back on her feet. When I realized she was ready to leave, I started trying to find out what resources were available locally and went to Google- A funny saying of some of my friends that like to tweak church sayings is If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of Google, who giveth to all men liberally…. :) What I found was that the first six sources I found were no longer current and only one of the next few was still operating. I ended up spending hours on the phone and chatting with people trying to find the available resources. As I thought of a praxis project for this class, I realized that an individual who was thinking of coming out to friends and family about their ...

In 1994, Barnes-Jewish Hospital began the AWARE program to provide support and advocacy to women patients and employees of the hospital. Initially the program was established to provide a link between patients who were victims of domestic violence and the community resources available. Early on, it became clear that victims identified from within the health care system had different needs. Those needs were not being met by community services available, which are designed to best meet the needs of women who are specifically looking to leave their partners. Women referred to AWARE were also likely to be looking for resources and support to assist them while they were in the relationship and were trying to sort out their best options. Beginning in January 2008, AWARE services became available to men experiencing abuse by a partner as well as women ...
And then a year after we broke up, thats when I found the Freedom Programme. And that happened quite randomly through talking to a friend who was having addiction therapy, group therapy, doing a 12 step programme. So he was talking to me about that and about the benefit of group counselling. And he didnt, he didnt know anything about that, you know, it was literally a conversation about him and how beneficial he had found group counselling because of shared experience. Because, you know, addiction is this horrible quiet thing that nobody talks about and it seems really seedy and you feel really dirty. But when youre in a room of people who are all in the same situation, you start realising that, actually its not some dirty, nasty thing, there are reasons. So through having that entirely separate conversation with him, I suddenly thought, Do you know what, this is what Im missing. Im missing shared experiences. Im constantly trying to, trying to explain myself and nobody gets it. And ...
