Domestic violence series VI final!
Alright, I've been on depressing topics long enough. Here's the last word about domestic violence, quoting from Tracy's article.
Domestic violence is an astoundingly complex problem which defies quick, simple solutions.
Abusers have deep-seated wounds and pathologies that have existed for many years, as do battered wives.
The dynamics of abusive families are complex and well-hidden, making it very difficult for outsiders to know the truth, let alone offer a wise response.
Hence, working with violent families calls for a partnership with various agencies, wise leaders and professionals. A major part of the action step is to help victims and perpetrators of domestic violence in getting professional counselling.
