Our guest this week is Dr. Michele Finneran PhD. Her work with incarcerated females led her to the realization that many were victims of domesticate abuse. This work forced her to take a hard look at the system and the formal and informal services provided in the community.
Dr. Finneran's mission in writing,"Surviving Domestic Abuse:
Formal and Informal Supports and Services" is to help victims
of domestic abuse navigate effectively through the myriad of formal
and informal supports and services. She interviewed real-life
survivors and utilized their voices to translate
what was helpful in escaping the realm of domestic abuse. Dr. Finneran's passion in writing this book is to provide knowledge, give support options and ultimately empower victims of domestic abuse. It is also the intent of this author to leverage victims perceptions, reflections and feelings...and to document
recommendations for policy, strategy and decision making for supports and service providers.
