Description: This video is about, What you CAN do if you suspect you’re being abused. It is Dr. Stephanie Lang’s Top Tip #5: Start reading and learning all you can about abuse, all forms of abuse, from a variety of sources.
Transcript: Number five is I want you to start reading and learning all that you can about abuse, all forms of abuse. Go to library, it’s a great resource, your local library. Go to the internet. Ask people. Because, the more people that you learn from about abuse, the more you’re going to realize that what the experts are saying, is true. You’re going to be more likely to believe it, because you’re going to start to see—from variety of different sources—people are saying the same things.
And when you have been in abuse, you’re very distrusting of what people are saying – and rightfully so, you should be – because, you have been being abused, and buying, buying into what’s been told to you, when it’s not true.
So, if you’re seeking help from a person like myself, you know, I know what’s happening in your head. You’re, you’re saying things like, you know, you’re distrusting of the motive of the person, “Are they really out to help me? Or is this Dr. Stephanie maybe just a feminist, and she hates men, and she wants to break up my relationship with my man”. Right? Well the more you hear from other experts besides me, the more you’re going to realize, and we’re going to be saying same things about the abuse in your relationship, and you’re going to realize, “This woman knows what she is talking about!” So, please, #5: Seek education from a wide variety of sources – as much as possible, about abuse.
