Domestic Violence and the Trauma in Its Wake - Part 1

Host:
Dr. Tim Clinton
Guest:
Dr. Shannae Anderson
Tragically, during the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a noted increase in domestic violence in the U.S. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. Tim Clinton and clinical psychologist, Dr. Shannae (SHAWN-ay) Anderson reveal that the ongoing isolation has compounded spousal abuse. In order to survive, victims often experience dissociation, in which the mind essentially separates from the body. The helplessness and powerlessness that the victim feels at the hands of their abuser is often unspeakable terror. Dr. Anderson reveals the means necessary for a survivor to regain their voice and feel safe again.
