          Anatomy of Abuse

          August 21, 2007

          What would you do if your spouse belittled you and threatened your life? For women who have ever endured verbal, physical or emotional abuse in a relationship, Dr. Phil helps break the silence.



          Living on the Edge

          Amy says her husband, Lee, has choked and kicked her, and even held a knife to her throat! Amy’s parents, Cynthia and Stan, fear for their daughter’s life and worry about the safety of their grandkids.


          “I’m afraid that I might lose it and kill her.”

          Kids in the Crossfire

          Lee joins Dr. Phil via satellite because he’s on probation for a domestic violence charge, and cannot leave the state. He admits to having anger issues but says he’s working to control them.


          Can Lee change his violent ways? 

          Conflicting Stories

          Child Protective Services has ordered Lee not to have contact with his kids. Dr. Phil reveals what his staff witnessed at a visit to Amy’s house, and he gives her a strong wake-up call.


          “I’m terrified of losing my children.”

          An Emotional Reunion
          After the show, Cynthia and Stan make a surprise visit to their granddaughter, Amerie, whom they haven’t seen in months.


          “It’s like a weight has been lifted off my chest.”
