The Brain Architects Podcast: COVID-19 Special Series

"Domestic Violence and Shelter-In-Place"
Shelter-in-place orders are meant to help prevent further spread of the coronavirus, but what does this mean for the people whose home is not a safe place? For those who are experiencing domestic violence, or believe they know someone who is, what options are available to stay both physically healthy and safe from violence?

In the fourth episode from a special COVID-19 series of The Brain Architects podcast, host Sally Pfitzer speaks with Dr. Tien Ung, Program Director for Impact and Learning at FUTURES without Violence, to discuss practical steps those at home can take to keep themselves and their children safe, as well as strategies others can use if they think someone they know may be experiencing domestic violence. Tien also highlights the importance of maintaining social connections during periods of physical distancing.
