Suffering in Silence: The Traumatic Effects of Domestic Violence

October 29, 2021

Victims of domestic violence experience hurt by someone they love. This can have serious consequences on how they think, act and feel. These traumatic experiences tend to overwhelm the victim mentally, emotionally and physically. This YWe Talk webinar will explore the traumatic experience of domestic violence, how it affects the brain and impacts the victim. We will also identify ways to assist victims who have experienced trauma due to domestic violence.
