In this episode of The 411 Live, we are joined by Arnitta Holliman, a licensed counselor and ReCast Program Manager of the Office of Violence Prevention.
It’s important to remember that domestic violence was a global pandemic long before the COVID-19 outbreak. Domestic violence reports have risen in Milwaukee during the coronavirus pandemic. Prosecutors have seen an increase in domestic violence referrals from police agencies across Milwaukee County according to the Journal Sentinel. However there are service providers to help during this pandemic and there are a number of ways you can get help. Join us as we talk to Arnitta Holliman, a licensed counselor and ReCast Program Manager of the Office of Violence Prevention about the spike in domestic violence, trauma, how the office of Violence Prevention responds to mass shootings and how to get help.
