Session 177: Black Women & Intimate Partner Violence

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 version of ourselves.

Today we’re digging into why there continues to be such a disparity in the way intimate partner violence is regarded when it involves Black women. Dr. Carolyn West joins us to discuss the role race plays in navigating intimate partner violence, the idea of the perfect victim, and suggestions for supporting women in your life who may be suffering abuse.
