I Always Wondered Why Somebody Didn’t Do Something About That,
Then I Realized … I Am Somebody!

 

EMPOWERING SURVIVORS OF DOMESTIC ABUSE

 

You are not alone, and you are not crazy.
You have value. You have purpose. You have rights.

Join us at a Nurtured Parent Support Group meeting
where your healing and conscious awakening can begin!

 

STATE IT!

The Nurtured Parent’s mission is simple: PROTECTING CHILDREN. EDUCATING THE PUBLIC. EMPOWERING SURVIVORS. While our spoken mission may be simple, the task at hand is very difficult. Despite the obstacles our vision remains clear, ensuring the protection of the rights, safety, health and well-being of our nation’s women and children.

SPEAK IT!

FAMILY COURT IS A $50 BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY. Domestic violence and sexual abuse perpetrators are winning joint and even sole custody of the children they harm. Safe, loving, care-giving parents are prevented from protecting their children by family court and child protective services, and they are being punished for attempting to do so.

SHARE IT!

Help raise awareness about domestic violence and court-ordered abuse by liking and sharing our website via social media! The most valuable way to “spread the word” is talk about it, make it viral and let the public know what is happening. The Nurtured Parent can be found on FACEBOOK and TWITTER.

SHOW IT!

The Nurtured Parent would not be possible without the generous support of people like you. By making a DONATION TODAY, you will immediately assist those in need and further support a grassroots movement that is raising awareness about the epidemic of injustices against women and children in the family court system.

SUPPORT IT!

Together, we can turn grief and loss into something positive; BY CONTRIBUTING, WE CAN PREVENT FUTURE DEATHS. There are victims (and their children) in life-threatening situations right now whose tragic outcomes could be altered by increased preventative measures such as evaluation of high risk cases, public education, and holding abusers accountable.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

The public can’t protest what it doesn’t know! DONATE TODAY and help correct our broken judicial system, assist our abused victims and fight to make our communities safe again.

DONATE TODAY!

The Nurtured Parent

Friends, please share this post far and wide. Providing this type of training for professionals who often are the first very people victims reach out to for help can make all the difference in the world to her-- and ultimately influence a healthy outcome for mother and child.

The “Why Does He Do That? Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men” 5 week webinar series with author and domestic violence expert Lundy Bancroft begins June 1st.

This webinar explores the key myths and misconceptions regarding abusive men that can lead to practice errors by well-intentioned professionals. The webinar speaks to the abused woman as the audience, modeling for professionals how to speak to a victim and how to understand her central concerns.
Participants will learn effective ways to:
*support the abused woman
*equip her with the skills she needs to define abuse
*guide her in analyzing the effects the abusers behavior is having on her
*assist her to put her own needs, and her children's needs, back at the center of her life

New Jersey social workers will receive six and a half (6.5) clinical & social and cultural competence continuing education hours for participating in this course (NASW-NJ), and 5 CEU’s through NASW approval in all other participating states throughout the U.S.

Also important to note—there is an early bird discount of $20 that ends tomorrow, Friday May 25th.

Lundy Bancroft has thirty years of experience specializing in interventions for abusive men and their families. He has authored five books in the field, including the U.S.'s best-selling book on domestic violence, Why Does He Do That?, and the national prizewinner The Batterer as Parent. Lundy is a former Co-Director of Emerge, the nation’s first counseling program for men who batter, and was involved in over 2000 cases as counselor and clinical supervisor. He has also served extensively as a custody evaluator, child abuse investigator, and expert witness. Lundy appears across the continent as a presenter for court personnel, child protective workers, mental health providers, law enforcement officials, and other audiences. In addition, Lundy and I co-authored a stage performance about battered women's experiences with the child custody system, called Forbidden to Protect. Forbidden To Protect debuted in Albany May 8th 2018.
