Targeted Podcast True Crime Domestic Violence


Mar 19, 2018

Today we are going to focus on the Melisha's mother, Wanda, again and address the popular question, “Why did she stay?” 

People from around the world condemned Wanda for standing by and doing nothing while Ronnie tortured Missy.   And I imagine many of you think the same thing.  But research tells a different story.  Targets often are not passive victims but instead will actively anticipate and try to circumvent the things that anger their partner.

We're going to look at some my personal research and discuss how targets demonstrate through their verb choices that they are actively  working to appease their abusers.
