      Pen to Print: Beautifully Flawed - Book Signing & Launch by Arinola Araba

      Dr Arinola Araba is a Nigerian-born, doctor turned multi award winning social entrepreneur turned author. Beautifully Flawed was not only an Amazon bestseller but has also been selected by the international literacy charity, Worldreader, for its free distribution to 100,000 girls across Africa over the next 3 years. Do you know anyone in an abusive relationship who needs support? Ask them to come... In collaboration with London Borough of Barking and Dagenham's Women's Empowement Month, Pen to Print presents the launch of Beautifully Flawed; a real story of a relationship troubled with Domestic Violence and the journey to finding healing after... An estimated 1.9 million adults aged 16 to 59 experienced domestic abuse in the last year. Two women each week and one man each month are killed in England and Wales by a current or former partner. Domestic abuse is a hugely destructive problem and we have a collective responsibility to tackle it One in four women and one in six men suffer from domestic abuse in their lifetime and domestic abuse costs businesses £1.9 billion every year due to decreased productivity, time off work, lost wages and sick pay. In the UK, nearly 2 million people experienced domestic abuse in the last year alone. With one third of a working adult’s life spent in work, charities and not for profit organisations can create a supportive workplace culture that encourages the identification of health and well-being needs and to help break the silence around this issue. Our draft policy also takes into account the needs of volunteers and how they can also be supported if they are affected by domestic abuse. Book summary by Arinola Araba I do not know how many people plan to divorce after getting married, well I didn't. That's why the reality of an impending divorce and a feeling of failing had me in its grip for years during a physically and emotionally abusive marriage. Even more, it was a foreign concept to me to seek a way out of it, because as a Christian, divorce did not seem to be a "right alternative or choice." In this book, I invite you to explore with me my struggles, mental health, confusion and ultimately, my journey into clarity and freedom, choice and mental well-being, not just for me, but for my children as well. Follow our journey to mental well-being as you will find my eldest child, Dami and I on YouTube in a #BBC documentary called "I Blame My Parents" - anxiety and me, aired 20/01/19. Thank you for buying my book. It is my sincere prayer that you will find hope, peace and forgiveness as you read and share this book :) In collaboration with London Borough of Barking and Dagenham's Women's Empowement Month, Pen to Print presents the launch of Beautifully Flawed; a real story of a relationship troubled with Domestic Violence and the journey to finding healing after.
