Domestic violence is a topic people don’t like to talk about. Its swept under the rug and hidden for years. But it needs to be discussed – people need to know there are options. They need to know what to look out for and what to do when they realize there is a problem. They need to know when and how to help their children. We answer these questions and more on this week’s show with my guest Susan Ball. She shares her story, the things she learned and how she works with her clients.
Below I share resource phone numbers, website links, a link to the article I mention in the interview, Susan’s links, my Love Accept & Respect yourself program and the replay will be posted below. I’m also including a link to download a FREE copy of one of my e-books for anyone.
