Welcome to Season 6 of Straight Talk with Cathy!

It’s been hard turning on the news in the last several weeks and hearing all of the updates surrounding the recent domestic violence scandals plaguing the NFL and other sports. What will the punishments of the players ultimately be? What’s fair, and whether it comes to an athlete or an everyday person, how do we tackle this issue?

What we all need to know is domestic violence knows no boundaries. It doesn’t matter what your socioeconomic background, race, ethnicity, or religion is when it comes to this topic.

In this episode, we’re talking about:

– The recent news coverage & penalties/consequences

– My domestic violence experience — why I stayed

– History of domestic violence — when did it start?

– Stopping the “pattern of bad behavior” — example, quarterback at Florida State

– The different types of domestic violence (physical, verbal, emotional, sexual, economic, self-imposed) — sharing examples and true stories

Excellent comprehensive resource on domestic violence. Includes information on: dating rights, important questions to ask, the Power Control Wheel and sibling abuse.
