help a friend is being physically abused by boyfriend. She has new bruises each day. Police have been involved in past. This guy attends a battered women class weekly...ordered by the courts. Basically ...what can I say or do to make her leave this guy. It is breaking my heart to see this.

Tell her you love her and she needs help cause no person deserves to be hurt. You can research abused women resources, call battered women homes and find out what they advise you to do. They have experience dealing with the denial that your friend is in and may be able to offer advice. Look up books in the library, look up information on the internet, call the local police station and find out what resources they may know about.

Find all the information about the subject that you can and you might find some answers. You friend needs intervention....is she close to any family or other friends who can help get her to use resources?

You are a good friend, bless you.

Sometimes though working with abused women is like working with a drunk, or drug addict. Until they are ready, until they are sick and tired of being sick and tired, its hard to watch, and hard to let go, you can only do so much, but they are the ones that must be ready to live different. You can't help some one more than they are willing to help themselves. Be prepared, send her to a shelter, provide phone numbers, but she must make the choice, and follow through.
