Product Description:

Katie meets David and falls in love. She moves in with him, but the relationship turns difficult and dangerous when David begins to steal her money and hurt her. Katie quickly gets help through her GP. After a stay in a refuge, Katie begins a new life with a new sense of confidence.

Domestic abuse affects millions of people in the UK, causing profound emotional and physical harm. Support to stop the abuse and deal with its effects is vital. This book will help people of all ages and abilities to recognise some of the different types of abuse that can happen in relationships, how to seek help, and how a safe and rewarding life can
follow after abuse.

These books are there to help tell a story and put that story into pictures so that everybody can understand. I think that is why so wonderful that the series is called ‘Beyond Words’ because what people experience, what people suffer, in domestic violence is quite often beyond words.
— The Rt Hon. Baroness Scotland of Asthal QC (EDV Global Foundation / co-author)
An enormous amount of people who we see at Respond, as well as having survived abuse within their families, go on to make intimate relationships themselves, which are also violent. It is very hard for them to speak of this because often it is such an amazing thing for someone with a learning disability to be in a relationship, which can be quite a challenge sometimes in itself, that the last thing you want to do is to tell someone that it’s not working out too well. And they may not always recognise that relationships should not be as bad as the one they are in. So these books will help people to conceptualise that, and let us know, and to tell their own story through the pictures.
— Dr Noelle Blackman (CEO Respond / co-author)
It was a privilege to go and get involved with the book and for other people to hear my voice so that they could get help. I am so happy that the book is ready and it is amazing how it has come out and that people now have copies.
— Jenny Cashman (Beverley Lewis House, Advisor)
