Family Violence Counselling for Women
1 in 3 Australian women have experienced family violence
- Family violence is when someone behaves abusively towards a family member.
- Abusive behaviour includes physical violence and sexual abuse, as well as financial, emotional and psychological abuse.
- A family member can be an intimate partner, immediate relation or someone in a ‘family-like’ relationship, such as a carer or culturally recognised family member.
- Family violence is part of a pattern of behaviour that controls or dominates a person and causes them to fear for their own or others’ safety and wellbeing.
