Domestic violence is a very complex issue that is impacted by larger cultural and social systems. Here you can find a range of content, including TED talks, tv shows, movies, and books, that explore domestic violence as a system, highlight its misconceptions, and provide insight on cultural and social issues that impact DV and keep it in the shadows. We'll also link testimonials from survivors, and inspirational materials to help survivors gain perspective and aid in their recovery. Hit Reset has no affiliation with any of the presenters, authors, actors, organizations, or companies involved in the development or production of these resources, and we do not benefit in any way from providing these materials.
