Domestic Abuse Therapy

Domestic violence is abuse in a pattern of coercion, intimidation, and violence used for power and control in a household setting. Domestic violence can take place in marriages, intimate partnerships, parent-child relationships, or in other family relationships. Individuals affected by domestic violence can include elders, children, and adults. Violence can be in the form of physical, verbal, emotional, economic, and sexual abuse. Thus, domestic violence therapy is a valuable tool.

Domestic violence can affect people of any age, class, culture, religion, occupation, sexual preference, or race. Research has shown that when one remains in a violent domestic relationship, they are prone to developing psychological and chronic mental health conditions. In addition, when an individual is experiencing domestic violence, patterns of abuse will often increase in severity and frequency over time without help.

HOW DOES DOMESTIC VIOLENCE DEVELOP?

Domestic violence can affect people of any age, class, culture, religion, occupation, sexual preference, as well as race. The cycle of violence can be categorized into three stages: Honeymoon, Tension Building, and Explosion.

The perpetrator wants to build trust and promises to “change” the relationship for the better. As a result, the victim will often minimize their relationship pain and have increased hope that abuse will not happen again.

WHAT FORMS OF ABUSE DOES DOMESTIC VIOLENCE THERAPY TREAT?
