In healthcare, physicians are often taught to ask the question, "Is home a safe place?" in regards to domestic abuse. Abuse in the home can extend beyond the physical trauma one may experience and can touch each of the seven domains of one's health. Ellie Goldberg, Assistant Director of Advocacy for the Victim-Survivor Advocacy Program at University of Utah, joins this episode of 7 Domains of Women's Health to talk about domestic abuse and its impact on a victim-survivor's life, and the lives of those around them.
