We not a couple
While there can be benefits for couples who undergo couple’s therapy, there’s a great risk for any person who is being abused to attend therapy with their abusive partner.
Relationship counseling can help partners understand each other, resolve difficult problems, and even help the couple gain a different perspective on their situation. It cannot, however, fix the unequal power structure that is characteristic of an abusive relationship.
An abuser may use what is said in therapy later against their partner. Therapy can make a person feel vulnerable. If the abuser is embarrassed or angered by something said in therapy, he or she may make their partner suffer to gain back the sense of control. Therapy is often considered a “safe space” for people to talk. For an abused partner, that safety doesn’t necessarily extend to their home.
Couples often enter couple’s therapy to fix their relationship. Deciding whether or not the relationship is better is extremely hard for a couple if one is being abused. The abuser has all of the power and can no longer gauge if a relationship is getting better because he/she does not see what their partner sees. The abused partner often cannot even rate how bad or good the relationship is because the abuse has affected him/her.
Another reason that couple’s therapy or counseling is not recommended is that the facilitator may not know about the abuse, which would make the entire process ineffective. The abuser may make their partner seem responsible for the problems, and if the therapist does not realize that abuse is present, her or she may believe the abuser.
The coolest waterfall in Nevada
Waterfalls do not come to mind when you think of Nevada, but this desert state has a surprising number of wonderful falls. Most of them are seasonal and are best visited after heavy rains, and many dry out completely in the summer or have just a trickle of water. By far the most popular is Mary Jane Falls near Las Vegas, Nevada. Hours/availability may have changed.
Located in the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, Lost Creek Falls is a lovely waterfall shooting out from a narrow rock chute and dropping 40 feet down into Lost Creek Canyon. The falls can be easily reached by a short round-trip hike of under a mile through the lush, shady canyon. The hike starts by crossing a narrow wash and continuing along a raised boardwalk constructed to protect the willow thicket you can see along the creek. You will see more interesting desert plants growing along the high canyon walls after you pass the fork with the Children’s Discovery Loop Trail. The trail continues through the shady tunnel of lush trees and boulders, emerging at the grotto and the falls. If you come after heavy rains, the waterfall will be a torrent of water. At other times, it might be completely dry.
Imma Go To “Nevada” But Imma “Hit The Scene” Dripping
Here is where you can post your work for upcoming matches on weekly shows or major events, or just put up a piece for character development. Before you get started here are the rules of the page!
-There is a TWO promo/2000 word limit for our regular bi-weekly shows and THREE promo/3000 word limit for our major events! For our side show Atlantis it is only ONE 2000 word promo.
- Promo deadlines are two days before the show (So, a Saturday show has a Thursday deadline for example.) The only exception is Atlantis which allows for a day before.
-If everyone involved in a match would like to extend or shorten the promo limit due to personal circumstances or preference, you have two days at the start of the new promo week to confirm with a member of the writing team the agreed upon limit for your match, if not it will remain the standard limit set for bi-weeklies and major shows.
-You must wait 48 HOURS before double posting. If your opponent has not responded to your first promo within a 48 hour period and you’d like to release another, you may do so. However keep in mind that with the promo limit, if you expend both promos, your opponent has the right to do their two (or three on a PPV week) uninterrupted.
-The page is not a place to make challenges or try to book matches!
-Do not break kayfabe! Remember that everything is entirely storyline based and there is no reason to either take things personally, or make it personal for someone else.
