Oct. 20, 2011 - PRLog -- Domestic Violence comes in all shapes and sizes, including physical, verbal, emotional, financial and psychological actions and threats against another person -- man, woman or child. In honor of October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month this week on 'Your Life After Trauma' we will feature survivor Rachael who will share her tips on navigating the path to healing and finding the right kind of support & Detective Tamika Jones of the Palm Beach Sheriffs Office who will share resources and information about Domestic Violence. The show airs Thursday, October 20th at 7pm EST, on Seaview Radio (95.9AM/106.9FM/960AM) and streams online at http://healmyptsd.com/2011/10/domestic-violence-awareness.html. Call in with your questions: 877.960.9960.

According to Michele Rosenthal, host of ‘Your Life After Trauma’,  "While we all think we know what domestic violence is about, the truth is many of us don't realize who it affects and how. I'm really pleased this week to be exploring the subject and raising awareness about abuse. We highlight domestic violence in October but it goes on throughout the year. What we learn this week we can use to help others every day of every other month."
