During a pandemic, sheltering-in-place can protect you from getting sick, but for people in abusive relationships, it can also mean being stuck in isolation with your abuser. Domestic violence cases have spiked dramatically in the past few months as COVID-19 has kept people at home. This week, Dr. Imani breaks down the signs of abuse, how to get help, and how realistic domestic violence in pop culture is with anti-violence advocate and therapist Sequoya Hayes. Keep up with Dr. Imani on Instagram @doctor.imani and on Twitter @doctor_imani.
