BxD9aLjCcAA9i-7Mental health professionals are on the front lines when it comes to helping victims of domestic violence. However, some counselors may not fully understand the mindset of a victim of domestic violence. Now that this subject has been thrust back into the spotlight due to the recent release of the full video of Ray Rice assaulting his then fiancee, now wife Janay, many are asking why she married him.

It is important that we understand the issues faced by victims in order to better assist them when they seek help.
