"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)

No matter how attractive, old or smart a person is, he or she can be a victim of emotional abuse. Here are some signs of an abusive partner or spouse.
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. All that counseling, classes and restraining orders didnt do a damn thing. He always came right back to me and I had no way out. So yes, just like we ...

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 ...
RFC 1933 IPv6 Transition Mechanisms April 1996 - Host-to-Host. IPv6/IPv4 hosts that are interconnected by an IPv4 infrastructure can tunnel IPv6 packets between themselves. In this case, the tunnel spans the entire end-to-end path that the packet takes. - Router-to-Host. IPv6/IPv4 routers can tunnel IPv6 packets to their final destination IPv6/IPv4 host. This tunnel spans only the last segment of the end-to-end path. Tunneling techniques are usually classified according to the mechanism by which the encapsulating node determines the address of the node at the end of the tunnel. In the first two tunneling methods listed above -- router-to-router and host-to-router -- the IPv6 packet is being tunneled to a router. The endpoint of this type of tunnel is an intermediary router which must decapsulate the IPv6 packet and forward it on to its final destination. When tunneling to a router, the endpoint of the tunnel is different from the destination of the packet being tunneled. So the addresses in the ...
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.

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%), ...
Aims and objectives To examine the association between sociodemographic, pregnancy-related variables and psychological and verbal intimate partner abuse, as well as to determine which of these variables are predictors of psychological and verbal intimate partner abuse during pregnancy. Background Intimate partner violence is a significant health issue, with severe implications to both mother and foetus. However, much of the research to date focuses on the outcomes of physical abuse. This article addresses the dearth in the literature by examining the association between sociodemographic, pregnancy-related variables and psychological and verbal intimate partner abuse during pregnancy. Design A survey research design was used. Method Three hundred postnatal women were recruited by convenience, nonproportional quota sampling technique. The WHO Violence Against Women Instrument was self-administered by participants. The association between categorical variables was assessed using Pearsons ...

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. Abusive partners (or ex-partners) choose the weapons of abuse and control they use, and their or their partners health can be used as one of these weapons. In some abusive relationships the domestic violence began at or around the time that the illness was diagnosed.. In some cases of domestic violence the abusive partner is the one with ...
As a hospital security professional, if you think domestic violence prevention and response isnt part of your job because its a personal matter that isnt any of your business, think again.

The killing of women by men who then take their own lives (femicide-suicide) is the most common form of homicide-suicide. This study identified femicide-suicide risk factors in an 11-city case-control study of femicide in the United States. Perpetrator, victim, relationship, and incident characteristics were analyzed for femicide-suicide cases (n = 67) and controls (n = 356, women living in the community with nonfatal physical abuse) using logistic regression modeling. Two risk factors emerged that were unique to femicide-suicides cases compared to overall femicide risk analyses: prior perpetrator suicide threats and victims having ever been married to the perpetrator ...
Despite your best efforts to teach your teenager about healthy relationships, he may end up in an emotionally or physically abusive relationship.

Until the day that I realised that everything I believed, everything I had been told, was not true. God doesnt support abusive relationships. God is Love. You have a choice. A choice to love God (if that is what you believe) and a choice to love yourself.. Why did I believe I didnt deserve to be loved? Why did I believe I had to stay in an abusive relationship? Why did I believe that it was my responsibility to fix the abusers behaviour? Why did I stay for 28 years? Why did I believe it was me that had to keep changing my behaviour to fit in?. These were the questions I started to ask myself - whilst I was just hanging on as I was told, and finding my way to those answers was a complete and total game changer. In fact, taking back control of my life completely changed everything about my life!. I now know my life matters and I have my own unique place in the world. Its not about conforming to a culture, religion, community or acceptance of the people around me. Its about loving and being at ...

The luncheon honored former Rainbow Board Member, Dr. Beth Bonzo, tragically killed a month ago in a senseless act of violence by her husband. She left behind three boys. Rainbow is committed to honoring her memory through their advocacy and education efforts.. We see the media characterizing stories like Beths as murder/suicide, and not talking about domestic violence which is a disservice to the people who may be struggling to get out, said Elizabeth Eastlund executive director of Rainbow. Its not a sexy thing to talk about and raise funds for, but I feel its imperative.. National domestic violence statistics state one out of every four women are victims of domestic violence. Last year Rainbow served 550 domestic violence abuse survivors and 900 children. Serving all of those children gives us opportunities to stop the generational cycle of abuse, Eastlund explained. Children who grow up in violent homes confuse love and abuse. When they come to us for services, it gives us a chance ...

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:
One out of every four women in South Africa is in an abusive relationship. Every six hours a woman in South Africa is murdered by her intimate partner. Every 25 seconds a woman or girl is raped in South Africa. A South African women has a 50% chance to be raped before the age of 18. Of all reported raped, 45% is perpetrated against minors. The crimes are usually committed by someone known or related to the victim. It is estimated that 88% of all rapes go unreported. ~according to the Womens Hope, Education and Training Trust (WHEAT).. These statistics tell a dismal tale of abuse against women in South Africa. Often, abused women turn inward, put up a hard exterior and try to move on from their experiences, but are often afraid to open their hearts to trust and to truly move on. Counselling for abused women addresses their need to be supported in their healing process as they develop skills and learn to become autonomous in society. Through this therapeutic process, the women become vital ...

Domestic violence is a great evil and an offense against human dignity that shatters lives and robs children of their innocence. Where it occurs, homes are transformed into places of danger and despair. During National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we renew our commitment to preventing domestic violence.
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 ...
At some point in life, most of us have experienced being in a toxic relationship, whether were aware of it or not. People of all ages, nationalities, and sexual orientations can find themselves in an unhealthy relationship, confused as to how they got there, or perhaps even unsure the situation is unhealthy.. While physical abuse is obvious, mental and emotional abuse can be subtle. It can also be particularly hard to notice things are wrong when you suffer from low self-worth. Abusive behavior can seem right to those who dont know their own value.. Here are 5 signs youre in an abusive relationship.. 1. Undermining ...

In life we can be defined by our many roles, such as a parent, spouse, employee and so many more. For me one of those roles includes being the mother of a domestic violence survivor.

No matter the gender of either party in a relationship, many dynamics of abuse are the same.

Ayoob: Yes, there was the Herman Kreutzer case. Basically, Kreutzer was a dad whose daughter was in a very abusive relationship with her husband. He and his wife took her back into the house. The abusive son-in-law came by the house and violently attacked him. He actually ended up with the guy choking him and he had to bite part of the guys finger off to make the guy stop attacking him.. As you might imagine, the family was absolutely terrified of this guy so they started arming themselves when they were on their property. The violent son-in-law comes back and pretends to have a gun inside an arm sling that hes been wearing since his finger was bitten off. He says he is going to kidnap the daughter and do some other horrible things. Herman Kreutzer pulls a gun and shoots him. As the guy was dying, his last words were, I guess I made a mistake. Truer words were never spoken.. Kreutzer panicked when he looked for the gun and found out he didnt have one. Like so many people who dont ...
3) A survivor of an abusive relationship decides to goNo Contact (NC)when they have determined to end the relationship. No Contact is designed to help the survivor reclaim their personal power and heal from a toxic, psychologically-damaging partner. Experts in the field virtually unanimously agree that No Contact (or Limited Contact in the cases were there are children or a business ) is essential for the healing of the survivor, to work through and sever the trauma bond and reclaim personal self-worth and agency. Ive written more about No Contacthere. No Contact is like detoxifying from an unhealthy drug of a toxic relationship.. 4) Breadcrumming is essentially stringing someone along.
