“Abusers”, A New Intervention Reality Show

A new reality show will soon be hitting the airwaves called Abusers. The show will depict real life cases of domestic violence and offer support & services for both the victim and the abuser. Check out this blog post by Ms. Magazine on the show. What are your thoughts? Will this help dispel myths, or exasperate misconceptions?

    Anything that brings domestic abuse out from the shadows is a step in the right direction, but my hope is that it is helpful to victims and survivors. So many are used to feeling and being blamed and feeling the shame. My hope is that the show doesn’t exploit the victims in the show and make them feel worse than they already do.
