PREVENTION

Setting Boundaries in Your Relationship

Boundaries are all about respect.

You and your partner should know what is too far in all aspects of your relationship so that both of you feel safe.  There are many type of boundaries to be aware of, some of them being emotional boundaries, physical boundaries and digital boundaries.

HELP AND ADVICE

Often the behavioural and emotional impacts of domestic and family violence will improve when children and their mothers are safe, the violence is no longer occurring and they receive support and specialist counselling.

Apart from the emotional, physical, social and behavioural damage abuse creates for children, statistics show that domestic violence can also become a learned behaviour. This means that children may grow up to think it is okay to use violence to get what they want and as adults that it is okay for there to be violence in their relationships.
