Nearly half of all women and men in the United States have experienced psychological aggression by an intimate partner in their lifetime (48.4% and 48.8%, respectively) according to the National Domestic Violence Hotline.
Nearly 3 in 10 women (29%) and 1 in 10 men (10%) in the US have experienced rape, physical violence and/or stalking by a partner and report a related impact on their functioning. In 2019, 243 million women and girls (aged 15-49) across the world have been subjected to sexual or physical violence by an intimate partner.
Domestic Violence is one of the greatest human rights violations across the globe and includes physical, verbal, psychological, sexual, financial and spiritual abuse. Many victims and survivors suffer in silence without a place to safely reveal what happened to them and get the help they need to recover.
The Kimberly Weeks Freedom Academy (KWFA) is a trauma recovery academy and support community of determined, committed-to-healing survivors of relational trauma and domestic violence. We are committed to providing a digital healing space for survivors to safely unpack their trauma and gain wisdom to walk free from the patterns of their past.
Through weekly teaching and coaching, members will be equipped with the language and understanding of what happened in their abuse, whether past or present, where the pattern began in their childhood and how to break the cycle of self-abandonment for acceptance and approval.
