He Said He Loved Me: Understanding the Effects of Emotional and Physical Abuse
Spartanburg, S.C. – According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics Special Report, roughly 85 percent of all people who are the victims of abusive relationships are women. Physical abuse typically is very evident; a bruised eye, a broken arm or a series of bruises that covers the extremities. Unfortunately, verbal abuse is not immediately identifiable and the mental impact is sometimes greater than the blows suffered from physical abuse. Nevertheless, both are equally devastating. Are you in an abusive relationship? Do you know the signs?
The Office of Housing and Residential Life at the University of South Carolina Upstate and the Collegiate Women of the Upstate are sponsoring an event titled He Said He Loved Me: Understanding the Effects of Emotional and Physical Abuse. The guest speaker for the evening will be Brenda Voytek, a victim and legal advocate with SAFE Homes/Rape Crisis Coalition. The event will be held in Sparty’s Den Wednesday, November 15 at 7:00 p.m.
“This program is a forum where female students can gain information about physical and emotional abuse, self-esteem issues, and healthy relationships,” said Cassandra Chamber, resident manager at USC Upstate.
