October is National Domestic Violence Awareness month | Osceola Sentinel Tribune | Crisis Intervention Counseling | Scoop.it
American Institute Health Care Professionals's insight:

Crisis intervention counseling is front and center all October long.   Many families suffer from abuse.   Many of these cases of domestic violence go unnoticed or are not reported because some simply do not understand the seriousness of the issue.   Domestic violence is a horrible plague on our society.  No one deserves to be abused.  No one deserves to live in fear. 


Getting the word out and making ourselves aware of these crimes leads to education and crisis counseling techniques that could save lives.   So please do not remain silent about domestic violence.   Together we can put an end to it.
