Tuesday's Psychology Trivia: If A Friend Was a Victim of Domestic Violence, What Would You Do?

Thought for the Day: 54 million Americans have been victims of domestic violence and 32 million have been a victim of sexual assault. 60 percent of Americans know a victim of domestic violence or sexual assault. If you knew a friend was suffering from domestic violence or had been sexually assaulted, what would you do? Given the size of this problem in the United States, what do you think the answer to today's trivia question is:

           a) 59%
           b) 85%
           c) 42%
           d) 75%

Come back on Thursday for the answer.

I would think its 42% but it sounds low. Here is an eBook for NDVAM which should give everyone information on what to do if they know of someone in an abusive relationship.

"I Trusted Him: The Story of Anna Lynn Hurd". A story of a 16 year old domestic violence victim. Although all the signs were there, maybe the people around her just didn't see it.

Read "I Trusted Him: The Story of Anna Lynn Hurd", it could save your life or the life of someone you know before it's to late. available free at
