BACKGROUND, OBJECTIVE, SINGLE MINDED PROPOSITION & KEYWORDS BACKGROUND

KEYWORDS

Within 24 states, there are laws for school dating abuse prevention that many states have passed legislation to address, except for California who was once a leader is now behind. Based on data from Youth Risk Behavior Survey, approximately 10% of high school students, 10.3% of males and 9.3% of females had been hit, slap-ped or physically hurt by their dating partner. Violence Against Women Act laws against violence help but fail when it comes to enforcement.

Aggressive Domestic Violence has its negative effect on people when it comes to physical abuse. The abusers can become aggressive and are not able to stop.

OBJECTIVE People are not able to recognize the early signs of dating or domestic violence and what to do or know how to find help. My goal is to educate people of what to look for, resources where they can get help and know that there are laws that help protect as part of their school curriculum.

Hopeful There is hope for those who need help. Many are survivors who have stories that current victims can learn from and get help. Aware People need to be aware of the signs of domestic violence and find resources.

SINGLE MINDED PROPOSITION Recognize the early signs and stop domestic violence before it starts. Get help now!

GRAPHIC ELEMENTS

1. Relationships is part of the early signs of domestic violence. I wanted to provide an image of a normal happy couple enjoying their first coffee date.

1. The early signs of domestic violence are usually are physical, emotional or behavioral. The white line and circle outline help to point out the descirptions on different parts of the photographs of the posters similar to a diagram.

2. Early signs of domestic violence can be seen from physical bruises, scratches etc. In this image I wanted to show that men can also be abused as much as women.

2. These graphic elements are symbolic of pinpoints that are consistently used throughout the booklet and zine. These help to pin point the important words or images of the book or Zine.

3. Signs in behavior of not going to work and staying in bed or loss of interest 3. Since domestic violence is usually hidden, the circle is used to highlight in things that you loved are possible signs that a person is being victimized (like a spotlight) important information or important images. of domestic violence.

TO P RI G HT: C H A P TE R 1 O PE N E R Within 24 states, there are laws for school dating abuse prevention that many states have passed legislation to address, except for California who was once a leader is now behind.

BOT TOM LE F T: I N N E R PAG E 3-4 BOT TOM RI G HT: I N N E R PAG E 5-6

Based on data from Youth Behavior Survey, approximately 10 percent of high school students, about 10 percent of males and nine percent of females have been hit, slapped or physically hurt by their dating partner. Violence Against Women Act laws against violence help but fail when it comes to enforcement.

2

If people knew the early signs of abuse, and how to get help, more victims will be saved. It is estimated that more than 42 million women in the United States experience physical violence, rape and or stalking by an intimate partner during their lifetime. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released the National Inti-mate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NSISVS), where based on 16,507 interviews, one in four women compared with one in seven men have been victims of severe physical violence.

What is domestic violence? Domestic violence (domestic abuse or relationship abuse) is a pattern of behaviors use by one partner to maintain power and control over another partner to maintain power and control over another partner in an intimate relationship. It can happen to people living together who are dating, between colleagues, friends both men and women.

Based on data from Youth Risk Behavior Survey, approximately 10% of high school students (10.3% of males and 9.3% of females had been hit, slapped or physically hurt by their dating partner. Based on a national survey of 12-17 year olds, approx. 335,000 females and 78,000 males experience severe dating violence each year.

Recognize the early signs before domestic abuse or violence starts.

In the movie Enough, the character goes to the police and asks about help. She provides information pretending that it is her friend who is being abused by her husband.

There are warning flags that mean abuse could be down the road or perhaps is not that far.

She tells him the situation and asks the authorities for help. In reply, they tell her that she needs evidence in order for them to arrest her husband for domestic abuse.

Domestic violence includes behaviors that physically harm, arouse fear, prevent a partner from doing what they wish or force them to behave in ways they do not want.

3

People are not well informed on how to get help or how to help.

This is no longer the case in present day. The Violence Against Women Act protects women and men who have been abused because it’s law. Anyone can privately call the National Domestic Violence Hot-line and get help that they need.

5

Speaking disrespectfully about their former partners or being disrespectful directly may indicate that the person is abusive. If he or she does unwanted favors or puts on a show of generosity making you feel uncomfortable. Early signs of domestic violence are recognized through characteristics in relationships, physical evidence, or from behavior.

Recognize the early signs before domestic abuse or violence starts. There are warning flags that mean abuse could be down the road or perhaps is not that far. Speaking disrespectfully about their former partners or being disrespectful directly may indicate that the person is abusive. If he or she does unwanted favors or puts on a show of generosity making you feel uncomfortable. These are signs of someone who may be abusive. Early signs are recognized through characteristics in relationships, physical evidence, or from behavior.

8

Criticism, Blame and Isolation are abusive characteristics we need to be aware of.

Relationship

If your partner makes you feel guilty and responsible for their aggressive or destructive behavior (all your fault) this is a sign that he is abusive. They are blaming you for all of their problems.

1

The signs of domestic violence may not be as obvious as one might think. The outcome of domestic violence leaves the victim feeling fearful and confused. It can be very difficult for someone to see their partner’s actions for what they really are. It is important for a person to understand what the difference between abuse and respect are. Abuse and respect are opposites. Abuse grows from attitudes and values and not feelings. Abusers are far more aware or conscious of what they are doing. Early signs can be as early as the relationship starts or as late into the relationship-after your married or live with them.

10

Is your partner intense or controlling?

Is it all about spending time with them and no one else? They start to make you feel emotionally, psychology, and financially dependent? Do they forbid you from going anywhere making you feel like you have to only stay at home? They prevent you from spending any time with friends and family.

Name calling such as ugly, stupid, crazy or overweight and ridiculing your achievements in front of friends and family is abusive behavior. When they claim no one else cares about you but them, making you feel bad about yourself and brainwashing you of no self-worth is the criticizing an abuser does.

A partner who is intense is someone who lies or exaggerates. He or she insists that you move in immediately or wants to have kids or get married right away. He or she tries so hard to butter up your friends and family. This person is usually over the top when it comes to gift giving and romantic gestures. If your partner constantly bombards you with text messages and emails or behaves obsessively with non stop call-it’s a sign. His or her controlling nature insists on what you should wear, speak and think. He shows up uninvited at your home or school checking up on you. He goes through all of your social media

Physical & Behavioral

Seeing the early signs within a relationship not easy to admit to. Even if you see the signs, as the victim there are reasons that are concluded of why to not flea from the situation. This could be due to fear or children and many other reasons. When it comes down to is a very sensitive situation. And it is really up to the victim to seek help. However, its always best to recognize the signs of a victim and know what to do. There are physical and behavioral signs o be aware of and keep an eye out for.

16

Are there physical marks that are visible or hidden? A victim usually has black eyes, busted lips, red or purple marks on the neck, sprained wrists and bruises on the arm. Some may try to cover up these marks and it can be very noticeable. An example would be wearing a turtle neck during a hot summer, wearing a heavy amount of make up, or wearing dark sunglasses indoors. These visible physical marks are frequent and they will have a weak or inconsistent explanation. A well known example is: “I fell down the stairs, I’m so clumsy”. When they blame them-self, it is self-evident that it really is someone else that they are with.

17

Is the assumed victim behaving differently? Take for instance co-worker named Leann, a very outgoing and friendly 20-year-old who is properly dressed, her make up always to perfection, hair neatly in a bun and just always early to work. After few months on the job, she starts dating someone consistent. She is late to work not just once, but a whole week. Her appearance is no longer well-groomed but sloppy. You start to notice she isolates herself during lunch and isn’t the same. These are signs they may be a victim.

Inteviews from local people-anyone and everyone. • Design Images and layout similar to the booklet. However the goal was a less formal approach because its focus is the people. This more type focus with few photographs of the featured interviewee and early signs diagram. • Interviews A few random volunteers were willing to let me interview them.

Everyday people and early signs of domestic violence

Interview: What is Domestic Violence ? Someone in a relationship is being hurt physically, psychologically or emotionally and/or sexually by their partner.

What signs do you look for? Yes. When someone is more withdrawn than usual; such as their personality change, scared of their partner (like flinches when the person is around), might wear clothing inappropriate for the weather like a long sleeve during the summer but I can use more education around this.

Is it important to know what the early signs are? Yes definitely so it doesn’t progress even further into a life threatening situation.

Darly San Jose Age 32, Occupational Therapist Hercules, California

Have you ever been in a situation where you or someone needed help? If so, what happened? 7 years ago, I was an OT (Occupational Therapy) intern for the refugee and resettlement program in Utah. I was working

with a young lady from Burma on finding employment which included filling out job applications and going to interviews. My supervisor had told me there’s history of domestic violence with her partner but she didn’t want to leave. She has gone to a women’s shelter once but ended coming back. One day, I went to their apartment for our appointment and she slightly opened the door saying it wasn’t a good time. I noticed she had a cut on her forehead. We rescheduled. I spoke with my supervisor on what to do and we decided to call the domestic violence hotline. They had said it is really up to the person to report it versus me reporting it especially if she isn’t ready to leave the situation. I felt helpless, because it didn’t feel like she had any options. I did my research–my role as an occupational therapist included providing resources, being an advocate and helping her navigate through her current situation.

4

I saw her a few days later and I had asked her what happened to her forehead and initially she said it was nothing. Then she proceeded to let me know it was her partner. We discussed her options and she said she was worried to report anything because she lives with his family, she has no other family and has three young kids. I told her we can bring her to a women’s shelter with her kids and she said she would think about it. Several days later she called saying she wanted to leave. She packed some of their items and we (myself and supervisor) took her and her kids to a women’s shelter. It was one of the hardest things I’ve had to do because as much as I was happy she was away from her partner I was worried about the new environment she was in and her starting all over with her kids.

5

I felt helpless, because it didn’t feel like she had any options.” Do you feel like help is easily accessible for everyone? Not necessarily. In the situation I was in, she needed someone who spoke English who could advocate for her and give her options. This young lady was here with no family except her children and she was living with her partners family. Plus in her culture domestic violence is common and rarely addressed.

What would you say is the most important of the early signs? Physical injuries and not having an explanation on how they got it plus increased personality changes.

What is Domestic Violence?

CRITICISM

Also known as domestic abuse or relationship abuse is a pattern of behaviors by one person to maintain power and control over another person. He or she maintains power and control over that person in their relationship. Domestic Violence can happen to people living together, dating, between colleagues or friends both men and women. Domestic abuse includes behaviors that physically harm, arouse fear, prevent someone from doing what they wish or force them to behave in ways they do not want. There are warning flags that mean abuse could be down the road or perhaps is not that far. Speaking disrespectfully about their former partners or being disrespectful directly may indicate that the person is abusive. If he or she does unwanter favors or puts on a show of generosity making you feel uncomfortable. These are signs of someone who may be abusive. Early signs are recognized through characteristics in relationships, physical evidence, or from behavior.

Interview with:

Anonymous Male Age 42 San Carlos, California What is Domestic Violence? Getting into physical altercations with each other. I’ve always thought it was a physical thing.

Are you aware of what signs to look for? No. I always thought of early signs being bruises.

Do you feel that it’s important to know what the early signs are? Yes, because if you stop it early you can prevent it from getting worse even death.

Have you ever been in a situation where you or someone else needed help? If so, what happened? Yes my ex-girlfriend use to push me and I would have to sometimes physically restrain her when she was intoxicated.

It isn’t talked about, it’s hidden.”

Did you know where or how to get help? No, I don’t. I wouldn’t know where to where to go. Except maybe to go see a psychologist.

Do you feel it is important to know about the early signs of domestic violence? I would want to know more about the early signs. So I can help someone. It’s not easy to help someone because you don’t always know what the right advice is.

Do you feel it’s important to share stories? Why? It’s up to them individually. But the more stories they share and get out there, it will help many others because it will raise awareness.

Support is critical and the more they feel supported by people who care for them, the easier it will be for them to take the steps necessary to get and stay safe away from their abusive partner. Remember that you can call the hotline to find local support groups and information on staying safe.

INTRODUCTION | CREATIVE BRIEF | VISUAL SYSTEM | DELIVERABLES | CONCLUSION | CREDITS

IN CONCLUSION, Domestic violence is a hidden issue that everyone knows about but don’t talk about it. I found myself hours at the library and bookstores looking for books on the subject. There were only a few and sometimes none. Recognizing the early signs plays a very important role for individuals who are unaware. Understanding how an abuser behaves or if someone may be in an abusive relationship can save a person’s life. Especially for people like myself who were never aware of the signs or resources to get help. Stop the violence before it starts.

LOOKING FORWARD, I want to continue interviewing more people, write different zines and pass them pubically. I want to design a vlog very similar to the Be Aware website and expand it to where users can interact more and design a mobile app to accompany the website.
