Anti-violence programs for men aim to reduce domestic abuse and familicide

Jul 18, 2019

On this edition of Your Call, we welcome back Rachel Louise Snyder, author of No Visible Bruises: What We Don’t Know About Domestic Violence Can Kill Us. We’ll discuss anti-violence programs for men, including one called Resolve to Stop the Violence, which began in a San Bruno jail. 

Synder says we can’t expect every program to work the first, second, or even the third time, but we can’t stop. What’s the alternative?
