We're doing something different for today's show as my intention is to focus on the men who are survivors of Domestic Violence. My guests today are Jan Brown, Donna Savage, Julia Sudduth & Lorraine Hines: Jan Brown is the Founder and Executive Director of the Domestic Abuse Helpline for Men and Women. Mrs. Brown graduated from the University of Maine with B.S. in Mental Health and Human Services and an Associates Degree in Legal Technology. She co-authored a peer-reviewed article, Characteristics of Callers to the Domestic Abuse Helpline for Men (Journal of Family Violence, February 2007) and in 2005 she did a poster presentation on, "Service Provisions for Male Victims of Domestic Abuse," at University of New Hampshire's 9th International Family Violence Research Conference. She recently appeared in an episode of WE TV's the Secret Lives of Women show that was on the topic of husband battering (12/09). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7H9HeUAgDtQ&feature=player_embedded. website: www.dahmw.org.
