In the US, we often treat the aftermath of domestic violence and abuse –hotlines and shelters for victims. We don’t do much to stop the abuse before it happens. But what if we had a helpline for the abusers? Journalist Rachel Louise Snyder recently wrote an opinion piece for the New York Times about her experiences going into abuser hotlines. She’s also the author of “No Visible Bruises: What We Don’t Know About Domestic Violence Can Kill Us.” (Segment produced by James Hoopes)
