It's one of the hardest issues to deal with, and always challenging to talk about. That is why a Domestic Violence therapist is your best option. The sessions in therapy will encourage open communication. While such communication can be perceived as dangerous because of the violence that is occurring in the relationship, it is vital that both parties are treated to couples counseling. The Domestic Violence therapist can make both people understand and have a shared respect and shared responsibility for the outcome of their partnership. Until the violent partner can get help to stop his abusive behavior, the abuse is likely to follow. Therapy is a strong direction to go, and finding just the right one is your best bet.
When going through the trauma of domestic violence, individual counseling with a licensed Domestic Violence therapist can help the victim of the abuse see the patterns of violence in the relationship and then develop a safety plan. Patients and survivors of domestic violence will suffer and struggle with self-esteem, anxiety, fear and posttraumatic stress that will most likely be impacting every area of their lives. A Domestic Violence Therapist will be able to address these issues head on and also build up the person's strengths while minimizing negative thoughts about themselves. Many therapists specializing in this area will utilize practices like art and music therapy, providing a creative outlet for the patient's feelings.
