Couples Counseling will not stop abuse

 Abuse is not a relationship problem, and couples counseling will not stop it. When the problem is abuse, it does not take "two to tango." Abuse is the abuser's problem, and if abuse is going stop in a relationship, the abuser needs to take steps to stop it. 

Unfortunately, many pastors and Christian counselors still treat abuse as a couples problem, inadvertently increasing the risk of injury or death to victims. 

Giving the book, Woman Submit! Christians & Domestic Violence, as gifts, helps us become part of the solution rather than the problem.

Abuse is so misunderstood! Give this book as a gift to anyone experiencing abuse. And give a copy to those they are most likely to turn to for help: Family, Friends, Pastor, Sunday School Teacher...."  

Give a copy to local DV shelters and law enforcement. When they understand the issue of domestic violence among Christians better, they are far more likely to help victims, rather than write them off as not-credible. Sadly, out of ignorance, many police officers do this.
