domestic violence issues

  • Imagine you are trying to help a neighbor who you know has had a history of domestic violence issues in her family.

  • “Claire” also has mentioned on several occasions that when she has had to call the police, they were mean and unhelpful.
  • She has also told you that she has been a victim of childhood trauma and she has a therapist who is working with her. She states that Human Resources at her company have done nothing to help her, and that you are her only friend. She seems to live on raw emotion, and you feel tentative about helping her as you are worried she may blame you for not helping her in the right way.
