"You just don't know what you don't know". In today's episode, we dive into abusive relationships and domestic violence. I know many will think this information does not pertain to them but having this knowledge can save lives of loved ones. We discuss red flags that might indicate a potential batterer, how to support loved ones in abusive relationships, and how to create a plan to leave. I urge everyone to listen to my interview with Dr. Laura Streyffeler.
Dr. Laura is a Licensed in Mental Health Counselor with a PhD in Human Services.She is a Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress. In addition to her counseling practice, Dr. Laura provides expert witness/consultation for victims of trauma (with focus on domestic and sexual violence) and authored the book Wife Beater Shirt Optional: There is no dress code for domestic violence.
