DadsDivorce.com editor, Rick Ortiz discusses the book Abused Men: The Hidden Side of Domestic Violence with author Philip Cook.
Cook fleshes out the true nature of violence in America today including the numbers that are often not mentioned: those describing violence targeting the man as the victim, sometimes using examples of couples we are all familiar with.
We do see abuse of men in the media… usually with a laugh track under it.
Cook also discusses the difference in tactics that men and women use to commit violence, the changes in policies related to domestic violence, and the differences in the perception of the general public toward abuse directed toward men versus women.
