Domestic violence, both physical and sexual, has regularly made the headlines in recent years. But behind these acts, there is always a context of psychological violence between the abuser and the victim. This violence, which is increasingly recognized as being as damaging, if not more so, than physical violence, is nevertheless largely misunderstood. In her quest to help demystify this type of violence, host Schelby Jean-Baptiste talks to several experts and victims, including special guests such as India Desjardins, Lili Boisvert and Khate Lessard.
La violence conjugale, physique et sexuelle a régulièrement fait les manchettes ces dernières années. Mais derrière ces actes, il existe toujours un contexte de violence psychologique entre l’abuseur et la victime. Cette violence, qui est de plus en plus reconnue comme autant, sinon plus dommageable que la violence physique, est cependant largement méconnue. Dans sa quête pour nous aider à démystifier ce type de violence, l'animatrice Schelby Jean-Baptiste s’entretient avec plusieurs expertes et victimes, notamment les invitées spéciales India Desjardins, Lili Boisvert et Khate Lessard.
