Season 2, Episode 37: Why Do Abuse Victims Stay: "Every Breath You Take" by Ann Rule
On this episode of The Unlovely Truth, I interview author Karen DeArmond Gardner. Karen has first hand experience with leaving an abusive relationship. We had an interesting conversation about practical tips to help someone who is ready to be free. You’ll also learn why abuse victims stay silent.
According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner. That means that this is happening to people we know. But we don’t have to be silent either. Check out the links below to learn more, and maybe find a way that you can help.
