1 in 3 women experience serious physical violence at the hands of an intimate partner during their lifetimes. Typically, it happens between the ages of 16-24, but can happen to any woman at any age. It could be happening to someone you know right now, and you don't know about it.
I've spoken out about dating violence at high schools, colleges, private companies, community groups, and police conferences.
I discuss the life-altering emotional and physical injuries that are possible unless we become aware—and act. WHEN DATING HURTS explains the warning signs that can help detect an unhealthy relationship. I explain "the template every abuser follows". This is lifesaving information. It will bring you clarity on this issue.
I share what I have learned from conversations with domestic violence counselors and law enforcement professionals. I've spoken in-depth with victims and survivors. Much of what I've learned is from my family's journey after the loss of our daughter, Kristin. What I offer is not theoretical.
Had we seen a book like this, Kristin would be alive today. What you will read can save someone's life. The more you know, the safer you—and those you care about—will be.
WHEN DATING HURTS is available on Amazon in paperback and ebook.
