Please, if you witness abuse do not walk away and let it go unreported. That is what encourages the abuser to continue hurting their victims.
Someone needs to know. Having a witness is going to help you prove that someone hurt you. In the end it will be your word against their`s. Make Your word/case stronger by telling someone your story of what happened.
Keep a log.
According to Trish Steele, founder of Safe Passage Heals, UNREPORTED is the best book with the most complete and best information on awareness of abuse and how to recognise the signs of this disease. The book also provides you with clear and simple yet complete information on what you need to know and do to get out of an abusive situation if you so choose.
Say NO to Abuse and LIVE!
Unreported is a book for domestic abuse awareness. You will get a lot of information that the lawyers and therapists don’t give you. I Promise this book will not leave you hanging.
