Thread Name: Suspect Physical Abuse--What to do?
Subject: RE: Suspect Physical Abuse--What to do?
Some of you are suggesting what really is a rather violent and forceful intervention--as well meaning as this is, verbal browbeating and police visits only would force her into a deeper and more focussed kind of denial--Even if that would work in some situations, as I said, they are both professionals with advanced degrees and board certification--she works closely with most of the agencies mentioned above, hardly the sort of person that anyone can sit down and give a stern talking to--To suggest that she might have this kind of problem is not something that a lot of people would want to deal with--even people who usually deal with this sort of thing--
