This is the fourth "Reflections" episode where I examine a series of interviews with my friend, Michael. He joins me as we reflect back on episodes, 18 (Laura Fernandez of Sanctuary for Families on serving survivor needs and trauma from abuse) and 19 (Lisa Fischel-Wolovick on "Traumatic Divorce and Separation"), 20 (#SurvivorStories with Rosaura Torres Thomas on abuse when your partner is a cop) and 21 (#SurvivorStories with Jordan on leaving his fundamentalist Christian home and the intersection of power and religion), stories about the impact of domestic violence on survivors and children.
Michael and I used to work together and served many students who were not in school or not working and were looking to develop skills to go back to school or to find a job. The young people we were helping often had their systemic barriers exacerbated by personal conflict in their lives that were difficult to manage, such as parents who didn't prioritize their education or work over their care-taking responsibilities, or romantic partners who were not helping to parent, didn't support their efforts to better themselves, and/or engaged in deliberate patterns of behavior to sabotage their school and/or work.
I was interested in Michael's perspective on the topics covered in our shows so far, especially since the majority of listeners are, not surprisingly, female. I hope you will find this episode engaging and, for the male listeners, an entree into your own exploration of what en(gender)ed has to offer you.
During our reflection, we talked about these additional resources:
