Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone, yet the problem is often overlooked, excused, or denied. This is especially true when the abuse is psychological, rather than physical. Noticing and acknowledging the signs of an abusive relationship is the first step to ending it.
Domestic violence and abuse does not discriminate. It happens among heterosexual couples and in same-sex partnerships. It occurs within all age ranges, ethnic backgrounds, and economic levels. And while women are more commonly victimized, men are also abused—especially verbally and emotionally, although sometimes even physically as well. The bottom line is that abusive behaviour is never acceptable, whether it’s coming from a man, a woman, a teenager, or an older adult.
Step By Step offer both a consultancy service using a program, experience and training tools from RESPECT where Julie was trained as a facilitator. The training or consultancy work is also offered in an adapted format for young people at school for instance or where for example cyber-bullying has meant that no longer is abuse confined to just the playground or outside the school gates.
