Jennifer Young began her career over nineteen years ago working with single parents, helping them to achieve employment and education goals through the exploration of self-direction. During that time Jennifer dedicated herself to the prevention of domestic violence. This focus allowed for the development of a philosophy that included building strength through knowledge and personal power. Jennifer believes that there are four areas to examine which will lead to development of inner strength-security, empowerment, love and freedom or S.E.L.F. Through a deep examination and development of these areas she believes we can be our true and strong selves.

In 2009 Jennifer began her private practice and that same year took a position as a coach for the Institute for Relational Harm Reduction and Public Pathology Education. Jennifer spent three months training daily with Sandra on the concepts related to pathological love relationships and the model of care developed by The Institute. Following this intense mentorship, Jennifer has worked with over 200 clients through one-to-one coaching and leading support groups for The Institute. Through her work with clients, mentorship with Sandra Brown and continued learning in the area of personality disorders and their impact on others, Jennifer strives to assist The Institute clients with obtaining compassionate disengagement from their pathological partner.

Jennifer’s belief about healing and change can be summarized in the words of Anais Nin: “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

Jennifer has worked as a social worker, foster parent and as a volunteer legal advocate for victims of violence. She is currently a member of the Pinellas County Fatality Review Team and member of the Suncoast Mental Health Counseling Association.

Strategies for High Conflict Cases Column – Safety Director and Violence Expert

Susan Murphy-Milano is often praised as one of the most dynamic and engaging speakers of our day in the domestic violence prevention field.

As an expert in the area of intimate partner violence and the prevention of homicide, Susan has created specific tools and procedures which the abused need to safely leave a violent relationship.

Her books, “Defending Our Lives,” “Moving Out, Moving On: When a Relationship Goes Wrong–A Step-By-Step Approach For Organizing Your Leave Ahead of Time” and “Time’s Up! A Guide on How to Leave and Survive Abusive & Stalking Relationships,” are considered the “bibles” of how to make the move away from abuse and deal with the many confusing situations surrounding violence prevention, stalking, break-up or divorce.

Susan witnessed her father, a decorated Chicago Violent Crimes Detective, brutally and violently attack her mother repeatedly. The threat “If you leave, I will kill you” turned into reality one awful night. Susan walked into her childhood home and found her mother murdered and her father dead in the next room. He had killed her mother, then committed suicide by shooting himself in the head. That day, Susan vowed to change the way the world looks at violence, both inside and outside the home. In the years since, she has delivered on that vow.

Her books and strategies are taught world-wide and used by law enforcement, domestic abuse advocates, social workers, attorneys, health care workers, human resource departments and domestic violence agencies. The comprehensive strategies and escape plans utilized by Susan have been successful and tested by time for over 20 years.

Susan uses humor, passion, and all her years of experience to motivate her audience to become more effective first responders, advocates and professionals in their work to stop family violence.

Susan’s quest for justice was instrumental in the passage of the Illinois Stalking Law and the Lauternberg Act. She has been prominently featured in newspapers, magazines, radio and television including: The Oprah Winfrey Show, Larry King Radio, ABC’S 20/20, Justice Files, E! True Hollywood Story, CNN, Sunday Today Show Profile, Woman’s Day, Family Circle, U.S. News and World Report to name only a few. She has frequently participated in guest media commentary panels on major news programs. She is a contributor to the online blogs Women and Crime Ink and the crime survivors blog Time’s Up.
