    "Your problem is not that you lose control of yourself, it’s that you take control of [others]. In order to change, you don’t need to gain control over yourself, you need to let go of control of [others].”
    ~ Lundy Bancroft

  • TIPS TO KEEP YOURSELF SAFE!

    IMPORTANT TECHNIQUES

    • Taking Time Outs:  Time outs are an effective strategy for keeping yourself safe and allowing time to think about the problem and then solving the problem.
    • Thought Stopping: Taking time to recognize your thinking patterns and challenging beliefs that are unhealthy.
    • Deep breathing: Taking a few deep breathes allows the brain to “re-focus”and to activate the part of the brain that helps you to think ahead and make good decisions.
    • Visualization: Using guided imagery helps to focus on a calming thought, which in turn, relaxes the body.
    • Muscle Relaxation: Learning to tense your muscles and then relax them helps to recognize the warning signs that your body is escalating and in turn, helps to find ways to relax your body in times of stress.
    • Talking About It: Domestic violence is much more likely to occur if you keep it a secret. Build your support group. Seek mentors who can talk with you during difficult times and offer you healthy alternatives to violence.
