Tolson 4 TEARS on Domestic Violence, Power & Control

For Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Anne Holmes, of the National Association of Baby Boomer Women, hosted a tele seminar with author/advocate Lynn C. Tolson titled Why Does She Stay; Why Doesn’t He Stop (click the title to play) Originally aired in October 2010, the tele seminar is relevant at any time. 

The National Association of Baby Boomer Women is an online association is the place to encourage, connect and support one another. It also offers an online community forum called Boomer Women Speak (click to visit link). Given that 1 in 4 women will be a victim of domestic abuse in her lifetime, this tele seminar offers information that may stir women to proceed to a successful "second act."  Listen as Lynn C. Tolson offers information about the concept of power and control in a relationship, and how to recognize the dynamics that hold a woman from her highest potential. The tele seminar relies on the Power and Control Wheel for educational purposes. 

A review of the power and control wheel offers multiple reasons why she does not leave. This puts more pressure on the victims when the burden must be on the perpetrator of violence, and the question should be, "why doesn't he stop?"
