Thanks for posting this. As an outpatient therapist, I have several newer clients who are dealing with domestic violence in some form or other. We currently do not have a support group for this issue at our clinic and I am interested in perahps starting one. I am looking for resources/training specific to this topic. I need resources that will help me understand what the abused person is experiencing and how to help her have the courage to leave if necessary and heal. If you know of any good books/articles/training, do let me know; thanks!
