A few years ago I was eating dinner at a doctor's home in an upper middle class neighborhood in Dallas.

Domestic violence in wealthy families is more common than we want to believe as we have seen with the recent media coverage of NFL players. All too often people choose to turn a blind eye not understanding that the abused individual is often not capable of acting in their own best interest. They get caught in denial, guilt, shame, self-blame, helplessness, the illusion that things are improving or the belief that they can tough it out. Why people stay is complex. Join us Thursday to learn how people gain the courage to leave and heal and how we can help. VoiceAmerica | Talk Radio | Online Talk Radio studio@voiceamerica.com false DD/MM/YYYY Add to Calendar
