-Lundy Bancroft author, Why Does He Do That: Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men
“An estimated 58,000 children a year are court-ordered for custody or unsupervised visitation with reported abusers. That means in many cases, children are being ordered to live with their rapists. Child custody courts are generating approximately $50 billion dollars a year from the business of exploiting families in crisis and putting children in direct harm’s way. Adverse childhood experiences are the most basic cause of health risk behaviors, morbidity, disability, mortality, and health care costs. In fact, it costs taxpayers $500 billion dollars a year in health care related costs due to adverse childhood experiences. SURGEON GENERAL’S WARNING: FAMILY COURT IS BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH”- Patrice Lenowitz
THE NURTURED PARENT SUPPORT GROUP for Survivors of Domestic Abuse assists adults seeking the opportunity to heal from the debilitating effects of abuse.
Now it its 6th year, The Nurtured Parent operates on the front lines supporting survivors through free weekly support group meetings, therapeutic outings and workshops, and public awareness conferences and events. Of paramount importance to this cause has been to advocate for victim’s rights and to unravel why family court often fails to protect the most vulnerable among us, parents and their children in crisis seeking a life free from abuse.
