ORLANDO, FL – 21 Oct, 2015 – Breaking the Cycle Consulting, Inc. announces the launch of a new, interactive website that will lead efforts to break the cycle of child to parent violence.
“Parental abuse or child to parent abuse and violence is a silent yet common and complex family problem that affects 1 out 5 families. I was shocked, as a therapist, to see this number and the lack of expertise and services available for this form of domestic violence,” says Laurie Reid, Florida-licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Founder and President of Breaking the Cycle Consulting, Inc.
Breaking the Cycle does not provide traditional therapy. Reid specifically designed this program to target and remedy child to parent violence. This program includes scripts, helpful tips, videos, a complete breaking the cycle program, and one-on-one skype sessions with a BTC coach. This online program is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from the comfort of your own home.
Reid says, “I believe it is important to include all members of the family, when breaking the cycle. There is less pressure and more inclusion of all family members in our online environment because it is available at each family’s own pace and in the privacy of their own home.”
The concept for Breaking the Cycle is very personal to Reid. She grew up with an emotionally and verbally abusive sister, witnessing first-hand what child to parent violence was like. During her teen years, she began to mimic her sister’s behavior.
“I was verbally abusive to my mother because I felt like she was weak. I resented the fact that she did not protect us from my sister’s violence when we were younger,” she says.
After having to perform community service for shoplifting and then serving time in the Navy, Reid became a licensed therapist. The first therapy job she had was working with children and it evolved into her spending significant time counseling adolescents. Through her extensive 18 years of experience, she was able to create the curriculum for this program.
Breaking the Cycle emphasizes the need for physical, psychological, and emotional safety for both the parent and child. They have served more than 600 families, collaborated with two universities for research into child to parent aggression and violence, and presented at numerous national and state level conferences on the subject. Now, they are excited to bring this new, online format to help start a movement that focuses on breaking the cycle of child to parent violence once and for all.
