Patricia Sly On Approaching a Suspected Abuse Victim

Patricia Sly, President and CEO of the Jersey Battered Women’s Service, sat with Steve Adubato on “One-on-One” to discuss what to do if you suspect someone is the victim of abuse.

“The best thing you can do is express your concern in a confidential way,” Sly says of how to approach someone who you suspect may be a victim of abuse. “Tell that what you’ve observed that has caused concern”

“Do it in a non-judgmental way,” she continues. This means to refrain from victim-blaming, which does not help at all. “Leaving is never as easy as it sounds,” Sly explains.

Jersey Battered Women’s Service in Morris County is a full-service domestic violence and domestic abuse prevention agency with volunteer opportunities. Their services include a 24-hour hotline, counseling, safe house, transitional living, children’s services, life skills education, vocational counseling, batterers’ intervention, legal assistance, teen dating violence services and professional training, education and youth prevention programs.

Al Leiter On Interacting With Fans 

Al Leiter, sportscaster, baseball player and Toms River native, sat with Steve Adubato on “One-on-One” to discuss why he always interacts with his fans.

Leiter says that his humility is not contrived. “I always was very cognizant that it was a privilege to wear a Major League Baseball uniform 19 seasons,” he says. “When I was on the field, I felt compelled to connect with the people.”

The Jersey native recalls a time that his brother waited for Mickey Mantle after a game. People waited for hours at Yankee Stadium for Mantle to come out. “He came out, head down,” he recalls, “didn’t even look.” This taught Leiter to always be sure to make a connection with his fans, so they never leave feeling the way his brother felt.
