THIS IS SHOCKING: 1 in 3 women experience serious violence from an intimate partner during their lifetimes. 33%! Typically it's between the ages of 16 and 24. But dating violence could be harming a 12-year old daughter, someone's 30-year old niece, or one of your co-workers. It could be right at this moment and you don't know it. Dating violence is prevalent in every community, zip code, county, state, over all parts of this country. Forget your preconceptions or stereotypes. It is everywhere.
I'VE SPOKEN OUT ABOUT DATING VIOLENCE OVER 100 TIMES at high schools, colleges, private companies, community groups, and police academies. I've given TV, radio, podcast, and webinar interviews. I discuss the life-altering emotional and physical injuries that are possible unless we are aware, and we act. WHEN DATING HURTS explains the warning signs that can help to detect a relationship that can be harmful. And I explain "the template every abuser follows". It's lifesaving information. It will bring you clarity on this issue.
I OFFER GUIDANCE gained from countless conversations with domestic violence counselors and law enforcement professionals. I have spoken with victims and survivors. Most of what I've learned is taken from our lives after the loss of Kristin. So, this is not theoretical. It is real.
HAD WE SEEN A BOOK LIKE THIS, Kristin would be alive today. I believe that. What you will read can save someone's life. The more you know, the safer you—and those you care about—will be. We cannot undo my family's past, but we can enlighten your family's future.
WHEN DATING HURTS is available in paperback and eBook at Amazon.
