The CatBox is finally back up as of March 19, 2014!!! It is a huge database and had corrupt tables that have since been repaired.

Also, the entire site is being renovated. Since the server move in March 2014, much of it doesn't work. So please bear with us. It should be up and working by April 2014.

This is the place for you if you think you may be in an abusive relationship or may be abusive yourself. Site Mascot *Trubble* Enjoy!

For over a decade this site has helped many people in abusive situations, and has helped educate those interested in learning about abuse. In addition to being linked to, many pages have been published in hard copy abuse brochures, articles, and books. has also been translated into other languages.

You will find many, many articles and reader stories here - often with commentary from Dr. Irene, as well as support  in our free forum, "The CatBox."

And Trubble. *Sigh* our Mascot Cat. He is aptly named.

Site Keywords: Personal Responsibility and mindfulness.
