Domestic Violence Prevention and Legal Information
Domestic violence prevention campaigns over the last 20 years have been quite successful; many people are now aware of how big a problem domestic abuse has become, and public support for victims has never been higher. Unfortunately, instances of abuse are still widespread and many victims are unable to separate themselves from their abusers. The Man Group is here to help provide options and show victims and abusers that violence at home is not OK, and that it will not be tolerated, regardless of the circumstances.
If you or your loved one are being abused at home, or you believe they may be abused, there are options. Take a look at our resource list and refer to our numerous articles designed to help separate abuser and victim so the cycle of violence can end and all parties can begin to get assistance to help prevent future incidences.
Prevention used to consist solely of keeping people away from known domestic violence abusers, but it has become so much more than that. Psychologists and doctors in general now agree that those who commit acts of domestic violence often pass their tendencies down to their sons, daughters, and victims. Now more than ever, experts are finding that victims of abuse often repeat that abuse.
The Man Group wants victims and abusers to know that they do not have to continue this cycle. They can get help and do their part to stop domestic violence. If you’re the victim, you can help prevent future incidences of domestic violence by reaching out to support groups to help separate yourself from your abuser. If you’re an abuser, you can go to anger management courses and do your part to curb your aggressive tendencies.
