What statistics did the speaker provide that surprised you the most? How representative of victims/survivors do you think she is?
She discusses stages early in the relationship that eventually led to violence. At what point do you think she should have realized there was a problem? At what point should she have eneded the relationship? Why didn’t she?
What advice would you give a person who told you that a loved one (e.g. parent, partner, sibling) had hit them? What resources are available in your community to help victims? How are these resources funded?
