Description

In episode 6, the theme of isolation is continued, but this time, focusing on domestic violence and abuse.

Domestic violence and abuse (DVA) is a very serious concern that everyone as well as all healthcare professionals and practitioners might encounter in our practices and daily lives.  Anyone of us could meet someone who is a victim-survivor seeking support to deal with the impact of DVA.  All Healthcare professional/practitioners can play a very important role in identifying, referring, and responding to the people we meet. Friends and families (as well as heath care professionals) need to understand the phenomenon of DVA and how it presents.

 This episode provides an overview of prevalence, presentation, and impact on the psychological health of the victim-survivor.

My guest for this podcast to discuss the subject is a professor in sociology at Durham University. She has been involved in research into the lives of LGB & T people for 25 years, she is Professor Catherine Donovan.
