Spotting the Warning Signs of Domestic Violence


Times of stress and anxiety can strain any relationship, but when does something cross the line from normal ups and downs to unhealthy, or even abusive, dynamics? During this interactive presentation, we’ll use a healthy relationship framework to spot common “red flags” of domestic violence. We’ll examine real-life examples of excuses for abusive behavior and conclude with a discussion about how to support someone struggling with an abusive relationship and the available services.
