Domestic Abuse Part Two: Turning the Focus to Post-Separation Abuse with Dr. Christine Cocchiola on Divorce & Beyond #238

We are back with Domestic Abuse Part Two where Dr. Christine Cocchiola discusses the increasing awareness of another form of IPV, Post-Separation Abuse, which is increasingly in the headlines with the ongoing high profile cases of Kim Kardashion and Kanye West and the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial.

Abuse between intimate partners comes in many forms.  All are destructive, but some are so insidious and pervasive that they are incredibly common, yet vastly unknown by the public and often, in fact, by the victims themselves.  With physical violence and abuse, it is very easy to identify that behavior is abusive, but when it comes to coercive control and emotional abuse, it is much harder to identify.  Dr. Christine Cocchiola, a survivor herself, is dedicated to educating, supporting and advocating for others suffering in this horrible cycle of abuse.  In Part One, Dr. Cocchiola discussed coercive control and she now helps us to understand the many faces of Post-Separation Abuse and the many dangers it presents.

About this week's special guest:
