Profound, chilling words from a Belize Domestic Violence Training Manual:
This manual is only a beginning. It will give you the facts you need to know, tips on how to council, a rundown on the resources available in your community, and more. What it will not give you, what it cannot give you, is the look of pure fear in the eyes of a woman living with abuse, the blue and purple swollen face of a woman who’s husband threw a pot at her head last night, the tears of a child who has watched his father beating his mother almost to the point of death. These are things you will be faced with as a counselor that no one can prepare you for.
