DadsDivorce Live: Reality Of Domestic Violence Against Men

Typically, domestic violence is framed strictly as a women’s issue. While women who face violence from their partners are certainly in need of adequate resources to receive help, there are also millions of men who find themselves victims every year. 

Phillip Cook explored this topic in his book, “Abused Men: The Hidden Side Of Domestic Violence,” which was released in 1997 with a second edition published in 2009. Cook joined DadsDivorce Live to discuss the facts regarding male victims of domestic violence and how societal attitudes toward abused men has changed in the years since his book was published.
