Domestic Violence: How to Support an Employee
In a company, domestic violence is more prevalent than we care to admit, Listen to Britt as she teaches you how to support your staff. Britt Warnick is a Revolutionary Leader in the area of domestic violence. She joins Kristie on the show today to talk about her own experiences with domestic abuse, and her rise to serve and give back to others has lead to business success. Her story is touching and powerful.
Consider/Ask: Radical Mindset Musings
- Predators and abusers are extremely powerful and manipulative. One of the biggest red flags Britt shares is that these people will try to insert themselves into your life as soon as possible.
- Abuse tends to follow a cycle: Grooming – Cloud 9/Romance – Strain – Abuse – Apology, and then it cycles back again
- There can also be a larger cycle that gets wrapped up in the relationship, if a victim leaves a relationship it can be really easy to invite them back in when the abuser is in the apology cycle
- Brit describes the first time she experienced physical abuse, and how her abuser used the court system to get into a position of power
- This first experience, and her experiences over the span of five years, made her lose trust in the justice system
- Abusive individuals know how to manipulate people and manipulate them well; it’s very purposeful the way that they do things
- It is very common for victims to stay in the relationship for several reasons: sometimes they are in love with their abusers, sometimes they can’t leave because they depend on them financially, or are afraid to leave because of the possible consequences
- Abuse is manifested in many ways – physical, verbal, sexual, financial, psychological, emotional
- When you’ve experienced a trauma like abuse, it can sometimes start to seem normal
- Brit describes the time of abuse when her abuser almost took her life – “You never really know this until you’re living in it”
- Brit has a recording of her abuser admitting to this incident, and it serves as a point of validation and ease of guilt that she did not do anything to be in her situation
- Abuse is not prejudiced – it can happen to anyone; There is no specific social background, socio-economic status, education, racial, sexual orientation that is targeted
- The rise: Brit began speaking out via articles, and has two non-profits
- It is not easy to overcome these traumas, but you don’t have to let that define who you are
Revolutionary Leader’s Mantra: Trauma will not define me.
