Leslie Morgan Steiner is the author of Crazy Love, a New York Times bestseller. Her memoir about surviving domestic violence in her first marriage takes readers on the baffling, terrifying journey of how she endured four years of domestic violence, eventually escaping and rebuilding her career and finding a happy family life with her second husband.
“Leslie’s presentation once again demonstrates to all of us about the critical need to recognize the devastating effects of domestic violence,” said Lauren Boucek, LCSW, Project SARAH Coordinator. “It reminds us that we need to do everything possible to keep the public aware of domestic violence and the urgency to fund programs and services to keep women and children safe.”
Project SARAH provides counseling, case management and advocacy services to individuals and families who are impacted by domestic violence and all forms of abuse. The program also features a domestic violence therapeutic support group which addresses issues such as safety planning, assertiveness, boundary setting, communication, parenting, self-esteem and identifying abusive patterns and how to avoid them. It is the only program in the community reaching out to Jewish survivors of domestic violence.
