Family Violence & Abuse Counselling for Women
What is family violence?
‘Family violence is when someone behaves abusively towards a family member. It 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 well being. Violent and abusive behaviour includes physical and sexual violence, as well as financial, emotional and psychological abuse’. (Definition via Domestic Violence Victoria)
