Carole Warshaw, MD, Director, National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health, knows the subject and understands what is really going on in the areas of mental health and substance abuse when it comes to gendered violence. She explains not only the numbers and the types of problems, but also the latest research, including the NCDVTMH/National Domestic Violence Hotline Surveys on Mental Health and Substance Use Coercion.
Those two studies demonstrate the very high percentage of women whose abusive partners deliberately try to undermine their mental health, coerce them into using substances, sabotage their recovery, and then use this against them as a tactic of control.
Most importantly, Dr. Warshaw explains the implications of these findings.
