Dr. Lord discusses what domestic violence consists of and offers valuable skills to spot this type of abuse. He addresses the various types of domestic abuse, followed by facts and statistics of this abuse in action. In hopes to bring awareness and protection of this abuse, Dr. Lord examines the different aspects of domestic violence.
DV 102: Abuse and the Church
Barry Lord, Psy.D., LMFT. Runtime: 1 hour 0 minutes 20 seconds
In Part 2, Dr. Lord takes a closer look at the effects of abuse on, and within, the Church. Through testimony and Scripture, Dr. Lord addresses the false notion that Scripture can be twisted to excuse domestic abuse. A clear interpretation of the word “submit” is uncovered as it relates to power and control. Family violence is explained in detail and then addressed as it relates to the Church.
