Are you facing experiences related to domestic violence?

Conflict is a part of life. Whether it's conflict at home or at work, sometimes two sides or more have opposing views on how to approach something or in how they react to a situation. While conflict is sometimes unavoidable, the way in which a person approaches conflict is key to handling the situation with ease and grace. Conflict incorporating allegations of domestic violence isn't a positive or acceptable form of conflict resolution.

Beyond that, it can also result in criminal charges or other long-lasting impacts for those accused or convicted of domestic violence. Domestic violence is categorized as a pattern of abusive behavior in any relationship that is used by one partner to gain or maintain control over another intimate partner. This can manifest physically or emotionally. The effects of domestic violence can also be felt by others living in the home, like children or other family members.

Some people may not even realize that they were engaging in domestic violence behaviors or experiencing the abuses of domestic violence. Understanding is key to stopping domestic violence before it starts. Domestic violence can even manifest as financially controlling behaviors, or sexual violence. Learning positive conflict resolution behaviors and healthy relationship habits can help a person avoid behaviors and actions associated with domestic violence.

Domestic violence victims are meant to be protected by the law and so those who believe they are suffering from domestic violence should seek help. On the flip side, those accused of domestic violence are entitled to their day in court to share their side of the story. These type of charges can really impact other proceedings, like divorce or child custody proceedings if they should arise. Also, a conviction can impact a person's personal and professional career in the years to come.
