    Dear Sherry,

    This diagram of “The Cycle of Abuse” has been modified in a simplistic method, so that one searching for answers and/or knowledge on domestic violence can better understand the dynamics. For a more in depth and detailed understanding, please reference the “Power and Control Wheel” by typing it into your web browser. Glad to know that this has been helpful, and you are very welcome! Take care.

    Kind regards,

      Good Evening Kathleen,

      Because we are a Canadian based organization working from Surrey, British Columbia, I would like to direct you to the National Domestic Violence Hotline who can better assist you. The phone number for the National Domestic Violence Hotline is 1−800−799−SAFE (7233) or TTY 1−800−787−3224. A Hotline advocate will provide you with direct connection to domestic violence resources available in your your area. If you would like to check out their website, first and foremost, ensure you are using a safe computer that is not being monitored. The National Domestic Violence Hotline can be found online at http://www.thehotline.org.

      The Hotline serves as the only domestic violence hotline in the nation with access to more than 4,000 shelters and domestic violence programs across the United States, Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Advocates receive approximately 23,500 calls each month. The Hotline is toll-free, confidential, and anonymous. It operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, in more than 170 different languages through interpreter services, with a TTY line available for the Deaf, Deaf-Blind, and Hard of Hearing. The staff at The Hotline is also available to provide assistance and guidance in a variety of areas including media, public relations, fundraising, public policy, legal advocacy, and public education and training.

      I hope this information will come in handy and that you will find safety and security. Good luck!

      Take care,
