- Domestic violence is such as silent epidemic. Research that has been done, um, indicates that one in four women, one in seven men will experience severe physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime. (4:28)
- What we know about how abusive partners show up, this is not someone who’s going to show up angry at work. They’re going to appear incredibly charismatic. Like I know them so well, they couldn’t possibly do it. (6:43)
- The first thing someone can always do is visit our website, the hotline.org has lots of tips for family, friends. (10:18)
If you are experiencing domestic violence or you know someone who does please call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1.800.799.SAFE or visit their website https://www.thehotline.org/ for more information.
