10. Deborah There's No Place Like Home by Future Women

    • Relationships

There is an emotional journey that happens after abuse. It isn’t quick but rather long and winding. For a survivor of domestic and family violence, what does that thorny path to long-term recovery look like? How do you retrieve, revive and redefine your sense of self?In the final episode of There’s No Place Like Home, you’re going to meet Deborah. Deborah is an incredible advocate, an author and a mum. Nineteen years ago, she and her three young daughters escaped her abusive husband with just $100 and the clothes they were wearing.Today, Deborah has been out of her abusive relationship for a year longer than she was in it. She has a new life with a partner who is loving and kind. Her daughters have had counselling and are all grown up now. Deborah’s life is much bigger than the worst things that have happened to her.In this episode of There’s No Place Like Home we ask what happens to victims of domestic and family violence who do survive. With the help of Deborah, as well as experts and advocates, we’ll learn what it takes to recover financially, physically and emotionally - and to reclaim one’s life.
