Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith

This film teaches physicians and other health care providers how to spot the more subtle signs of domestic violence when patients come to them for help. Doctors are urged to document the injuries they see in their records, to ask a series of sensitive yet probing questions, and to refer victims to various community centers that can help them further. Experts also discuss why some people abuse their loved ones and why so many men and women stay in abusive relationships.
