Shame on Violence in Asian American Families & Homes

Content Warning | Trigger Warning: Domestic Violence

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Therapist Linda Yoon talks about what’s hard to talk: with family violence and intimate partner violence. Physical violence and abuse is so wrong, even criminal, but getting out to safety has extra challenges in an Asian or Asian American home.

Thank you Linda for being brave to break the silence and bringing this issue to light. We hope your experiences will give someone the courage to wisely seek help and find healing.
