Aubrey Durkinabout this book: Domestic violence is that social ill that most of us are afraid to talk about. Perhaps we have experienced it for ourselves or know someone else who has. It could simply be a dynamic that upsets us because of its persistence.
Domestic violence is the deliberate physical and/or sexual abuse of someone with whom you share a familial or romantic relationship. This relationship amplifies the horrific psychological effects and can make ending the abusive relationship that much more difficult.
Women, men, and children can all be victims. Victimization knows no bounds of sex, age, race, or sexual orientation. Although the reasons for not leaving can vary, some dynamics typical to each of these categories can mean different reasons for staying and putting up with the abuse.
We can only seek to end domestic violence by understanding it. It is a problem that makes most of us at least uncomfortable, if not angry. In this book you will learn about the different types of victims and the differences and similarities in how they respond. Hopefully through this understanding we can respond to domestic violence appropriately and end it.
