On October 16, 2011, at 8PM EST Lynn C. Tolson will talk on Crime Wire Radio, hosted by activist Susan Murphy Milano. You can call in during the show (646) 478-0982
Susan is an expert in domestic violence and is the author of Time's Up: How To Escape Abusive and Stalking Relationships Guide AND Moving Out, Moving On. The show included discussions about the tools (evidentiary affidavit) that are now available for victims of abuse to safely leave their violent relationships. Visit her blog here.
I (Lynn) wrote about the devastating effects on children who witness their parents and/or other adults in the dynamics of domestic abuse in this blog post. The bottom line is that time may not heal all wounds, and children often repeat what they see in patterns of behavior later in life.
