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.
