It can be heart-breaking to watch a friend trapped in an abusive relationship. Sometimes we are at a loss of words, not knowing how to bring up the subject or bring it up again as our friend is in denial. 

At any point, we must be ready to speak the truth in love and so be prepared to ask, in the right place and a convenient time. 

We might have to be a shoulder for a friend to lean on sometimes but we should resist the temptation to take over. 

Rather we can empower our friends to make the right decisions by also providing them with useful articles, books and recommending watching   CADA Matters to them.

 A more detailed discussion on what a friend can do can be found in this episode of CADA Matters – Domestic abuse- what a friend can do
