Wise Readers: Are you worried you may be involved with an angry or controlling partner? What about someone you know? Dr. Terri Orbuch talks to me in this interview. I’m a coach and author of two new Love Factually Singles books, Love Factually: Your Guide to Identifying Abusers Before They Abuse You” and “Love Factually: Your Guide to Breaking Free From Abuse.” In this program, I reveal some of the warning signs of abuse, along with common questions once abuse has occurred.  If you or anyone you know is suffering from an abusive relationship, you can find additional support through the National Domestic Abuse Hotline. They offer free and confidential resources to help break free from abuse, and can be contacted 24/7 on their website or phone-line at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).
