Session 30: Red Flags in Relationships

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

Every October we observe National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. In honor of this, today’s episode focuses on red flags that may present themselves in new relationships that we should be paying attention to that may alert us that someone may be abusive. I also discussed the 6 different types of abuse that perpetrators engage in and provide feedback to a listener struggling with a possessive ex.
