Again, we can stop this..... Question is do we want to? This Book is under $20.00. Absolutely every victim/ survivor/ advocate/ city council, DA, State, AG, and it should be in EVERY University and Public Library in this Nation!
I want this to be the standard read when it comes to intimate terrorisim. Simple, money gaining vs. costing, the only way that it would even be possible to continue these horrible human rights atrocities is by those powers that be.... Society can now be outraged and DEMAND, without repercussion, armed with the facts, the easy truths in resolving humanity's basic human rights to freedom, to safety.
And, it is simple common sense that will GAIN $$ - not need more $ tossed at it.
Would you like to share a $500 billion reward? It might sound too good to be true, but this is the benefit to society of adopting the Quincy Solution with its proven practices to dramatically reduce domestic violence crime. Barry Goldstein has spent his career working to prevent abuse so he knew how to synthesize history and research about practices that stop domestic violence with medical research about the enormous health impact from stress related to domestic violence and child abuse.
Barry started by reviewing the successful practices in Quincy, San Diego, and Nashville. Domestic violence is not inevitable, and it is not surprising it can be prevented with a group of best practices. He updated the proven practices with new research, technology, and inclusion of the custody courts. The primary obstacle was inertia and money. Then the ACE (Adverse Childhood Experiences) research established that children exposed to domestic violence, child abuse, and other traumas suffer more illnesses and injuries throughout their lives. We can reduce societal problems like cancer, heart disease, substance abuse, and crime—and dramatically improve our economy. This is the Quincy Solution.
- Domestic violence is not inevitable. The Quincy Solution is based on successful practices in Quincy, Nashville, and San Diego so we know it works.
- The $500 billion in annual savings from the Quincy Solution comes from prevention of illnesses and injuries, reduced crime, and victims reaching their economic potential.
- The Quincy Solution is more than an absence of abuse. Women and children will be safe in their homes and free to reach their potential.
