Hi there everyone. I'm a new practitioner and I've been looking for research articles about domestic-abuse related depression and effective interventions. I haven't had a whole lot of luck. I was wondering if anyone has any stories they would like to share about the sort of counseling that has been helpful, or if anyone knows of any good research... This information would help us all!

dg....In my own path on my lifelong journey in recovery I've found literally hundreds of insights and knowledge, but two come to mind when I read your post. One is the book Homecoming by John Bradshaw. He also has a fantastic, eye opening series of audio-video realities about the dynamics of dysfunction, in every way shape and form. The second is Father Leo Booth who is a God send filled with truth love and hope. Hope you check these out.....good luck in your journey

When the spirit of the woman is ready to release her pain, the healing begins and the teachings and teachers appear. thank god that is all behind me, but I am far strong and gifted because of it.
These gifts I share with other women who are in that painful dynamic.

I highly recommend the list serve for non-borderlines. All verbal abuse isn't this severe, but so many of the elements of verbal abuse are the same as borderline behaviors - blowing up over nothing, gaslighting, etc.

Instead of pushing the memories away...let them come, cry, grieve, feel the pain of her loss. she was important and special. don't evpect to get "back to normal " right away.

Read Elizabeth Kubler Ross book about death and grief...a good starting place to learn about how and why we have these sad feelings.

When a memory of her surfaces write it down.

buy a special little book--"Memories of Granny" you could call it and write down everything you remember about her...the smells, the facial expression, the sayings, the stories of her young life. everything. When your gramps is ready have him tell you his memories of her.

someday you will have the fresh memories to share with YOUR grandchildren.

Yes someday your grandfather will join her. But take the time now while he is alive to enjoy him...gain what you can from him and love him. Give him flowers, bake his favoritew cookies. Never waste a chance to share your love with him...Loving him now is loving your grandmother.
Grieving takes a very long time. Do not deny yourslef the pain of the loss. It hurts but it will lessen in time. This pain is a real part of life. You can't enjoy it...but it shows how much you can love.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.
