Dr. Stephanie Lang is passionate about helping people recognize and prevent emotional and physical abuse after witnessing both in her own family. Over time and with experience, Dr. Stephanie has acquired broad insights into people and a deep sensitivity for what they might be going through in their relationships. Her caring empathy enables her to enter into the suffering of others while also maintaining her professional objectivity. Through her methods, she is able to help her clients see their own light, heal their hearts, and move towards a new freedom.
Dr. Stephanie founded her company, Lang Consulting International, in 2005, when she first began coaching people, in order to fulfill her dream of helping people prevent domestic violence before it starts by recognizing the subtle early warning signs and addressing them.
She holds a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Biology from Trinity University (San Antonio, Texas), a Masters of Arts (MA) in Professional Counseling from Amberton University (Dallas, Texas), and a Doctorate of Philosophy (PhD) degree in Psychology, with a specialization in Family Psychology, from Capella University (Minneapolis, Minnesota). During her training, she gained extensive experience working with both the victims and the perpetrators in battering populations, as well as in sex offending and sexual abuse populations.
Dr. Stephanie’s publications include an article entitled Why Men Batter, published in October of 2006 in the Canadian Journal of Adlerian Psychology. Her landmark dissertation entitled The Earliest Warning Signs of Intimate Partner Violence was completed and published in June of 2011.
After establishing the study of early warning signs of intimate partner violence as her specialty niche, Dr. Stephanie has continued her research in this area. She teaches a highly impactful and engaging “boot camp” called Detecting the Pink Flags Before They Turn Red. This course is available in various formats, including virtual boot camps, intensive live training camps, and private intensives to teach others the knowledge and skills she has gained from years of experience and research.
This unique and specialized training helps each attendee become an expert in trusting his or her individual voice and in recognizing the early warning signs of partner abuse.
In addition to conducting training camps about the earliest warning signs of relationship abuse (for which social workers, counselors, and marriage and family therapists can obtain CEUs), Dr. Stephanie facilitates coaching groups and provides mentoring or private coaching. She is also pleased to offer her expertise on domestic abuse to media, to courts as an expert witness, and to groups and organizations as a speaker.
