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.

Jersey Boys #HipNJ Premiere!

For over a decade, Jersey Boys has dazzled audiences all over the world with the sweet sounds of Newark natives Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons…but never in #HipNJ! That’s about to change, thanks to New Brunswick’s State Theatre New Jersey.

FINALLY, for the first time ever, the Broadway smash hit will be making its Garden State debut on Friday, October 13 at 8PM! Other dates include Saturday, October 14 at 2pm and 8pm and Sunday, October 15 at 2pm and 7pm. Tickets range from $35-$98.

Jersey Boys is the 2006 Tony®, Grammy®, and Olivier Award®-winning Best Musical about Rock and Roll Hall of Famers The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito, and Nick Massi. This is the true story of how four blue-collar kids became one of the greatest successes in pop music history. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds, and sold 175 million records worldwide—all before they were 30! Jersey Boys features their hit songs “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Rag Doll,” “Oh What a Night,” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.”

The Jersey Boys creative team includes two-time Tony Award®-winning director Des McAnuff, book writers Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, composer Bob Gaudio, lyricist Bob Crewe, and choreography by Sergio Trujillo.
