          With the help of best-selling author Bishop T.D. Jakes, Dr. Phil offers up some straight talk about domestic violence. Learn what to look for and how to stop it.

           


          Young, Famous and Abused?
          From the moment singer Chris Brown allegedly beat his girlfriend, Rihanna, on the eve of the Grammy Awards, America has been shocked and polarized by the story. How could Chris do that? And how could Rihanna even think about going back to him after what appeared to be such a brutal beating?



          Dr. Phil reads shocking details from the affidavit.

           


           


          A Life of Abuse
          The relationship between Megan and Kurt has been on-and-off-again for eight years, but the anger and violence has been consistently on. Megan says Kurt has beaten her, choked her, thrown her against walls, and as if that weren’t enough, Megan’s little boy is stuck in the middle. Though Kurt says he wants to save the relationship, Megan says it may be too late.

          Find out which direction Dr. Phil thinks they should go.
