The Silent Domestic Abuse Pandemic with Dr. Teresa Albizu - Episode 50

United Nations report that 243 million women and girls between the ages of 15 and 49 worldwide have been subjected to sexual or physical violence by wanting to partner. Historically domestic violence is a taboo subject and people just do not want to talk about it. And in many cases, a lot of people even have some difficulty identifying that they may in fact, be in a situation of domestic abuse. In this episode, Dr. Graham Taylor is joined by Dr. Teresa Albizu, founder and co-president of the R-A Pinnacle Group, an organizational behavior, and leadership development consulting firm and advocate for Safe Space Domestic Violence Services of Florida. Together they discuss domestic abuse and its many forms, the cycle of the learned behavior of participating in an abusive relationship, the learned tactics employed by perpetrators of intimate partner violence, and warning signs to recognize and raise a discussion to help someone you might suspect as a victim of domestic abuse.
