In some of (I Lie for Money) testimony, she mentioned that she gave Jodi a magazine subscription and several books to read. Did anyone catch what magazine it was that she thought Jodi should read or what books?

Also, I tried to think about heated argument situations and how males respond to it. In my experience, if there is an argument and the female starts storming off, the male might pursue her, grab her by the arm and try to stop her.

I think her story about being kicked in the ribs, body slammed and ending up with one broken finger on her left hand is not substantiated by any evidence such as a witness or even evidence of being treated. She claims Travis splinted her finger. I once had my finger slammed in a car door by my sister, went to the doctor, had it splinted for a week and it's perfectly normal with no residual defect.

She admitted she did all the damage on Travis's body and we're supposed to believe she is a shrinking violet who couldn't defend herself?

As for Go Ask Alyce or Alyce in Wonderland, I do believe she has suffered in her life in some way, but I can't speak as to what caused her to be such a strong advocate for victims of domestic violence. I know she worked or volunteered at a women's shelter. She claimed she does not work with families...ever. She is a licensed Marriage/Family Therapist (her credentials online) but she doesn't work with families?

I agree, she creeps me out as well, get her off already but can't wait to see what Juan has to ask. How dare she try to defend a psychopath and be an abuse counselor.It looks as if she is reading a script,I am sure there is one for her, She just loves to hear herself speak.

Waiting for the Prosecution to ask her simply "Have you ever been in a Good relationship with a Man, or any Sexual or intimate relationship with any Man, Alyce"..!??
Travis could have sent Jodi "a dozen Roses per Day" and Alyce the Man-Hater would translate that to certainly mean "He was being possessive and Abuse, trying to control her"
My thoughts exactly!!!!

Did not read all the posts, however did anyone see the day that Jodi took the yellow folder and hid it behind her back----what was that all about? The camera happen to be on JA the entire time, no one said much about it---just curious. Thanks

I can't believe Alyce LaViolette believes that Jodi Arias got Spiderman (Spideys) underwear for Valentine's Day. Further, it could have been a joke or private joke. Jodi is the one who talked about Spiderman in the phone call where they talked about Spiderman, Green Hornet, Batman, etc.

So, if you are somewhat of a nerd who likes Superheroes and maybe want to wear a costume when you have sex, you are a sexual deviant?

There are Valentine's Day women's Spiderman underwear.
I had to look because I'm not into comic book wearable items that are available. That is a ridiculous thing to focus on.

Later, they bring up the supposed event where she claimed she caught him looking at a photo of a boy. She was trying to plant seeds that he was into computer porn, etc. Anyway, the expert witness got tripped up on this and claimed she misspoke.

It was interesting that she abruptly left at lunch. Did she see something she didn't want to speak to when she was reviewing the e-mails/journal entries before she testified?

I am a therapist with the same qualifications as LaViolette, and I am appalled at her violation of those who are truly battered women. She has sold her soul for a few dollars and a few moments of fame. It is an enormous ethical violation to make judgements about a real victim, Travis Alexander, without ever hearing his side of the story. The Jodi Arias trial is about a vicious murder and a lying murderer who should have been diagnosed as a sociopath. Arias is the abuser, but LaViolette is on a mission to paint her as a victim based on lies. A disgrace to her profession.

Both parents indicated she was mentally unstable - JA's friends were telephoning them to take her in for medical evaluation. She apparently has a long history of erratic bi-polar like behavior. And when the police told them she was a suspect, they didn't seem that surprised.
She lives with her female "partner" in CA.

There is a picture of Travis when he was around 4 or 5 in Spiderman underwear. I'm sure that is where she got this part of her story that he sent them to her because he liked them. What intelligent man would send that broad butt a pair of children's underwear? And that t-shirt and underwear he did not do either. Again, what man goes to the craft store and buys iron on letters, comes home and make things like that? I sure do not know any.

. Yes I totally agree. At first I liked her but the longer she's up there the less respect I have for her. She seems foolish. I wonder if she's doing this because she hopes to become a nationally recognized figure. But she only seems extremely limited.

I was wondering what REAL therapists thought about her,and here is your post. I apologize to you and other good therapist for what she is doing to a group of unsung heroes. She is probably getting her schedule ready to run the gamut of all of the talk shows.

I wonder if Ms. Laviolette's bedroom is full of unicorns, rainbows, skittles and her my little pony collection. She seems to live in a world where EVERYTHING is abusive and no one ever gets called a name, gets into any kind of physical contact and never hangs up on someone, etc. I'd like to see how she is with her own husband, Mr. LaViolette.

I'm not okay with REAL abuse, but someone having a bad day and name calling or even raising a voice, hanging up on someone, etc. is not (in my mind) abuse. It's real life.

Travis and Jodi were not engaged or married. She could have walked away at any time if it was so horrible. The truth is she used him for sexual release just like he used her. Ms. LaViolette and Jodi are wearing Spiderman colors. Do they realize that?

I guess Jodi decided to pull her hair back to mirror Ms. LaViolette's short do until she can get her hair done the same way. She is pulling away from her Barbie Attorney former twin.

Ah, they finally got to the text message I wanted Ms. LaViolette to address. Hallelujah!!!

I totally agree. This woman sends out strong lesbian vibes, which is fine, only she is showing obvious contempt for men. What she claims as abuse is pretty normal in many relationships. Travis was NOT married and both he and Jodi were free to see whomever they wanted. If he was seeing othrs, that is not abuse since he was not engaged OR married to Jodi. Most of what she is claiming is based on one person...Jodi...a proven liar multiple times. This is a disgrace for all women AND men who suffered true abuse.

My reply to Dr G....
My statistic that 25% of women are mudered when they finally stand up to their violent husband, comes directly from my two years of abuse counseling after escaping from my ex-husband. The scenario is that there is a murder/suicide after the women files for divorce, 25% of the time.
I was instructed at the Wellstone Domestic Abuse Center in Minneapolis to be cautious and vigilant at all times. Keep my phone charged and close, watch before exiting a
Building to walk to my car, call 911 immediately if he is sighted, stay behind locked doors, dont walk alone, etc. Keep my restraining order with me at all times so the police have the authority to act.
This counseling came from court officials, police, and various abuse counselors. Protect yourself! Use caution.
Additionally let me say that I have had years of group abuse counseling. The common thread with victims is that we are mild mannered, quiet, dependant on others, easily led, easily dominated, followers. Jodi doesn't reveal that stature in any respect. She is confident enough to plan and carry out a wrathful murder, and then personally strong enough to lie about it in numerous ways. Not the victim mentality.
Her "diagnosed" memory loss is a huge sham. The Mayo medical guide defines global amnesia as a reality but it says there MUST BE A WITNESS to substantiate the facts that one minute you are lucid and the next minute forget everything. And its momentary, not lasting hours and hours before returning to normal. Hers is simply blocking and denial. She is such a mess, but not an abuse victim. Zero evidence except her word? Sorry, doesnt work

Thank you. So far all the therapist and Doctors have basically said the same thing about this woman. It is a disgrace to the profession AND a dis-service to true victems.

Dr G: outstanding version of events; it's my scenario as well. Adding a little more to what led up to it, what do you think of these points:
1. Jodi traveled to Mesa with the idea of killing Travis only if her dialogue with him didn't work out. That's why she didn't kill him right off the bat.
2. She lured him into sex as part of her dialogue for either rekindling their affair, or dissuading him from going to Cancun.
3. Regardless of any other facts in this case, the gas cans tell the whole story. They just simply can't be explained away.

Lois, I agree with most of your commentary up until you mention a proven statistic with no facts to corroborate. Arias' "fourth" presentation and all the imaginary stories have nothing factual to verify most of what she states. As much a liar as she has admitted, we all know that as has often been said, "if her lips are moving, she is lying." (One of most incredible prevaricators with a straight face I have ever heard in my many years in business; she is a cunning professional sociopath) To one of your points: many, many, women have murdered their family members when they feel cornered and not having their master life plans going as they wish.(I know, men have as well.) There is a difference between "crazy" and "evil." There is also a difference between "murder" and "killing." I am reminded of a song by Martina McBride performing Independence Day; the woman murdered her abusive husband and her daughter ended up in the county children's home as she went to prison. Killing needs to be replaced by a thing called "divorce." Some men or women will not agree to this and go nuts, but it is worth a try prior to a homicide. Some will say that leaving is not an option, painful, but it really is... Arias should have just let go....
I have concluded the sequence as follows: 1. Arias had the camera in her right hand (it has been shown that particular camera cannot be operated easily with the left hand) 2. She brought the knife and had it nearby. 3. She took pictures as a decoy asking him to pose, then she began to stab Travis with her left hand and dropped the camera in the process. One of the first stabbing strokes hit some serious artery as recorded by the medical examiner.(She is left handed and testimony has shown she is strong for a woman) 4. Travis fought to the sink where he sprayed blood as he coughed for air. He had defensive hand wounds trying to get to the sink. 5. He started down the hall to call for help as Arias followed him and continued stabbing him (9 times)in the back as he fell to the floor and began bleeding to his death. 6. At this point, he was basically immobile face down from severe internal blood loss. 7. Arias then reached down and lifted up his neck with the knife nearly decapitating him. 8. In her rage, she rolled him over and continued stabbing him the other 20 times. 9. She then dragged him back to the shower and, in continued rage she got the gun she stole from grandpa's house and shot him as she said, "Now you can't take her to Cancun, can you?" (I'm editorializing) 10. Then she had the presence of mind to try to clean up the place, but eventually feared getting caught, so she panicked and headed for the car. I want to vomit when I picture this mayhem. 11. When she called him and left a msg, that did it for me...guilty, guilty...murder...1st degree. No way call 911 to explain this bogus story proposed. She waited a long time for this concoction hoping to fool everyone. The crime scene "facts" validate all this along with other investigated items.
It is difficult to imagine jealous rage this intense, but the facts most certainly describe it as such. I have followed this case closely and have been open to reason, not fantasy. Be well...

Jodi is a sexual preditor and stalker. She planned this trip to be kept a secret to do just what you said. If sex and her attempt to get him to take her instead of the other woman didn't work, he wasn't going to go either. Her attempt to cover up what she did and all her lies plus her lies about "getting lost" on the way to the other man are all part of her plan.

This "LaViolette" person is totally crucifying a dead man for what I believe to be her personal 15 minutes of fame.

Alyce is a typical government assigned expert who gets her work by courts and government. NOT because she's good at what she does. Similar to the armies of PVP lawyers who are forced on seniors in the name of defending them however their real goal often is to make money off them.

I agree that Alyce is most likely a lesbian (not saying that is bad) and this affects her judgement against men. Has she been in a real relationship with both a man and woman? She appears to constantly be spouting info from "the people I talk to" and from quotes in books. None of which make her an expert in my book.

The biggest sign is she is basing ALL her facts on what a well know and admitted LIAR has told her. She as an expert should know Jodi Arias is a psychopath and not a victim. Yet she can't see that, which further shows "she is not an expert". She's only a person who has spoke to a number of abuse victims, plus most are in government custody, jail, prison etc. Not the norm, plus the people she speaks to are in jail (for a reason). Most may be in denial. So getting a one sided story from guilty people who won't admit they did something wrong is not basis for fact.
