Understanding the difference between a healthy and a toxic relationship is an important distinction to be able to make. Perhaps you think you’re in a healthy relationship, but in fact you’re not. Listen to today’s show to learn what makes a healthy relationship and what makes a relationship toxic. 

In this episode with Dr. Ludy Green, we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • How a lack of trust can create a toxic relationship
  • The ways in which a relationship can become toxic
  • How to identify toxic relationship patterns
  • The importance of setting boundaries in your relationship
  • How to talk to a friend in a toxic relationship
  • And much more!

Dr. Ludy Green is a national expert on preventing violence against women and children through economic empowerment and employment placement. Drawing on her 18 years of experience in the Human Resources field and her 20+ years as a human rights activist, Dr. Green founded Second Chance Employment Services, the first and only employment agency in the US for domestic violence and human trafficking victims. Dr. Green has worked extensively for the U.S. government and she is credited for successfully inserting employment related language for combating domestic violence into the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).
