03/07/11 Margaret Bernstein Sat On The Couch

Margaret Bernstein grew up with it all. Supportive parents and family, exclusive schools, a talent as a musician. What she has done with those benefits is to create wonderful music and, more importantly she creates programs for schools to teach about the world of emotional abuse and how to stop it from happening.

I was honored to sit with Margaret and listen to songs from her album Bricks In The Wall, which follows the journey of someone coming to the realization that they are in an abusive relationship.

Through her foundation Azalea Blossom Margaret offers hope and resources to those in abusive relationships. She has also developed "Safe Through Music", a program taught in middle-schools in 7 districts in new York State, which is a week-long program that uses the creative and performing arts to educate on the prevention of bullying, violence and abusive relationships.
