Candid stories of four older women who are dealing with abuse at the hands of an adult son.

A Mother Never Gives up Hope

This new DVD shares the candid and powerful stories of Ruth, Lova, Anne and Rita--four women who are dealing with abuse at the hands of an adult son. In their own words, they work through the emotions and pain of experiencing abuse from their sons, the life-changing impact it makes on them as a person and how it affects their mother-son relationships. The video also gives a 'two year progression' window in which the women look back on how they have adapted or changed as a result of the abuse--one takes back her own personal power, another feels 're-victimized' by the system for not being able to maintain a relationship with her son. Both emotional and empowering, the stories provide firsthand insight on how advocates can better assist other survivors of this under-reported form of elder abuse.
