Domestic violence is difficult to understand – and prevent – because it so often happens behind closed doors. Rachel Louise Snyder joins host Krys Boyd to debunk myths about domestic violence, and to talk about what it will take to truly address the problem that the World Health Organization deems a global epidemic. Her new book is called “No Visible Bruises: What We Don’t Know About Domestic Violence Can Kill Us” (Bloomsbury).

Chris Kench on a sofa at the kennel at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs. Gina was a playful 2-year-old German shepherd when she went to Iraq but months of door-to-door searches and noisy explosions left her cowering and fearful. After she came home to Peterson Air Force Base in June 2009, a military veterinarian diagnosed her with post-traumatic stress disorder. Ed Andrieski/AP Photo
