    I work with young adults in residential treatment centers for drug and alcohol abuse. 90% of the time that is only one piece of what is ruining their lives. Many have had childhoods of abuse, physical, mental, emotional and sexual. Often they’re labeled with PTSD because of their traumatic life experiences. Recently, a young woman admitted for mental health disorders reported being raped by a family member at age 3; abused by both parents and raped again as a teen. She cuts herself to ease the internal pain.
    We have to help the victims through their trauma and teach them to break the cycle of violence. However I feel it is critical to interrupt the violence, stop it in its wrath and then intervene on a level that the perpetrators can understand and relate to. Dr. Gary Slotkin in Chicago proved this theory works. He and his team have mitigated homicides, gang violence, rapes and other crimes in some of the most dangerous cities in the U.S.

    We have to find creative ways to educate the abusers. One way would be going into prisons and conducting workshops on No Violence. I’m looking for people to collaborate with on how we can intervene. Maybe we need to teach bystander awareness and every member of society intervenes when we witness or even suspect domestic violence, child abuse or any offense that endangers a child, teen, woman or male. I’d like to hear your thoughts. It’s tough doing this kind of work alone; we need to form strong connections and communities to tackle this problem. Fortunately this is a perfect time! Not a day goes by that we don’t hear about sexual assault. It’s at the forefront of our nation’s attention. We have momentum so let’s run with it! Please email me: info@maureenmahoney.com
