Here is a story about domestic violence and the effects it has on everyone.
Recently the domestic violence program administrator the Utah Department of Human Services, said “one in three women in Utah will experience the impacts of intimate partner violence at some point in their lives.”
The sooner a victim can get out of a situation, the sooner they can make their own life better.
Families want to help loved ones who experience domestic violence and many do offer that help in the early stages. But over time, their patience can be strained by victims who cannot, for very complex reasons, leave their perpetrators.
Campbell said people who work in advocacy or in direct service to victims of domestic violence tend to take personal inventory when tragedies of this scale occur.
But she has become convinced that it takes the efforts of an entire community to help victims of domestic violence and comprehensive prevention efforts, which include teaching young people about healthy behaviors and relationships.
More often the perpetrators of domestic violence isolate their victims from their families, which can allow the abuse to fester unchecked. Burnout is very common for social workers who work in this field. To have nonprofessional family members expected to carry the load, it’s a very hard thing to do.
There are several layers of help available to victims in every state in the country.
It is a well-known fact that many victims do not report domestic violence to the police until after they have been assaulted 25 to 30 times. How tragic?
