Intimate partner violence is pervasive…affecting 1 in 4 women in this country. Recent reports indicate that intimate partner violence has already entrenched itself in every mid to moderate-size company at a cost of over $4 billion per year in lost productivity, increased healthcare costs, and absenteeism.

Specifically, Silent Storm covers these critical topics:
