Robin McGraw’s Advice for Abuse Victims Who Blame Themselves

Twenty-year-old Reeve says her 30-year-old fiancé, David, hit her and pushed her into the refrigerator during an argument, but she says she believes she “deserved” it.   Dr. Phil calls on his wife, Robin McGraw, founder of When Georgia Smiled: The Robin McGraw Revelation Foundation, to show Reeve and David classic examples of abuse. “You never deserve to be hit,” she tells Reeve. “You never deserve to have someone put their hands on you.”   Dr. Phil adds, “That kind of logic will get you killed.” He continues, “There is no theory under which any man has the right to put his hands on you in anger, for any reason, at any time, no matter what.”   Watch the video to hear more from Dr. Phil and Robin, including invaluable information and resources for men and women everywhere who may find themselves in abusive relationships.
