Domestic violence (also known as domestic abuse or spousal abuse) occurs when a family member, partner or ex-partner attempts to physically or psychologically violate the other. No one, for any reason, deserves to be abused and without help, abuse will continue and is likely to worsen. If you are facing abuse, many resources are available to help you understand your options and to support you. This article gives you further information on this...




It is also important to keep in mind that in cases of women suffering from domestic violence, their agency is severely compromised. Thus, giving suggestions or advice to survivors like leaving the relationship, choosing to live a better life, etc is again taking away their agency from them. As mental health professionals, we should strive to hold space for them, because most often that is what they need the most- a safe, non-judgmental, and empathetic space where they can be their vulnerable selves and get support. We cannot save individuals, however, we can aim to empower them through counseling and therapy so that they feel equipped enough to make a choice and if that choice means continuing to stay in the abusive relationship/marriage, we as counselors should strive to work with them to make their well-being the top priority, rather than telling them to leave the abuser. Because, as has been explained in the article as well, the abuser and the abused get stuck in a cycle, and it\'s very difficult to break free from it.
