Breaking the Cycle of Domestic Abuse at Home & in Family Court

Mother and Child

All But My Soul could save you-your life, your children, your job, your savings, your home and your health.

From the Desk of Dr. Jeanne King, Ph.D.

Dear Battered Mother,

If you are entangled in, or recovering from, divorce proceedings with an abuser, I urge you to read the information on this page very carefully!

It could save you-your life, your children, your job, savings and your home. ...And if you've experienced any of these losses, it WILL help you heal!

You wake up and find yourself reaching out for society's aid to help you protect yourself and your children. And in many cases, they show up before you realize that you invited them.

Your emotions are mixed, your day-to-day reality clear and your future fuzzy. You want to believe your attorney is working for your "best interest," but this belief can't be supported by the proceedings, especially when his/her fees are funded by the marital estate which your controlling spouse controls.

The financial social politics are crystal clear, but you cling to the ideal of "social justice" and human decency, until you hear your counsel and the court throw a deaf ear to your child's self-mutilating in the face of being forced to live with someone who abuses him (sometimes before and WITHOUT a custody trial).

And you may even find yourself desperately struggling to have contact with your children after they are denied access to you...for days, weeks, months and for some protective parents for years.

You recognize that life, as you once knew it, is vanishing ...your children, your home, your savings, your career and, for many domestic abuse survivors, your health.

Far too often, domestic abuse survivors go from the "frying pan" to the "fire" on their way out of an abusive relationship. And they wonder how this can happen. While it doesn't always happen, it's more common than most people realize.

If you are a living domestic abuse, either on the inside of the relationship or on your way out of it, being informed about systemic abuse is essential to your survival.

Victims of domestic abuse can avoid being mothers without custody by recognizing, and not falling prey to, systemic abuse before it spirals out of control.

What is Systemic Abuse?

The word "systemic" is defined as "relating to, or referring to, the whole organism."

I liken systemic abuse to any systemic disease. It erodes the very elements that sustain the organism.

"Systemic abuse" is the manifestation of abuse by that deemed to protect the abused. The net result: the perpetuation of domestic violence by the very systems that purport to stop it.

You might notice...

The court agents don't/won't/can't see you for who you are, but rather only as your perpetrator desires you to be portrayed.

Your children's desperate cries for help are muffled, and their pleas for safety fall upon deaf ears.

You're wondering which side your attorney is actually on.

Survivors of domestic abuse far too often meet systemic abuse face-to-face in their efforts to seek safety from an abusive partner. You can be the defendant in a domestic abuse arrest, the party restrained by an ex-parte order of protection, the protective parent with supervised visitation or the battered mother cut out of your abused children's lives.

You could be black, white, yellow or of mixed origin. You may be rich, poor, professional or without technical skills. There are as many variations of the story of systemic abuse as there are people living it.

...And when it's yours, you know it; not only do you feel violated, but you also see no aid, no options and you learn that you are your first responder.

I was there, too. I lived systemic abuse and I can tell you from my own experience IT'S NOT ABOUT YOU. However, it is up to you to learn how to navigate the system and survive your partner's "use-of-the-system" to control you and your family.

In my efforts to make sense out of the unthinkable, I wrote a book entitled All But My Soul: Abuse Beyond Control. Now, initially I was drawn to write this book for the benefit of my 3 help them answer the questions, "Mom, why did you leave?" "...and why couldn't we see you?"

At that time, I hadn't fully grasped how wide spread of a problem this is; battered mothers being pushed out of their children's lives. People came up to me during book events coast-to-coast telling me they were living or had lived this, as well.

I recognized the epidemic proportion of this problem throughout the United States and Canada. And the first website for All But My Soul became a magnet for abused women, battered mothers and wounded protective parents seeking to make sense out of their lives.
