Addressing family violence
Conflict in families is natural, but violence is not. Violent, abusive or intimidating behaviour directed at you or your children is a major problem.
Family Violence is a complex issue, and there is help if you need it. If you’re currently in, or have been, in a violent, abusive or intimidating relationship, reach out and talk to Family Life. We offer a number of supportive and sensitive services that can help you overcome family violence.
Abusive behaviour is more than just physical violence
Family violence is not only physical assault. It also refers to a number of ways a person can dominate and control you or your children such as:
- Sexual assault
- Emotional and psychological torment>
- Financial and economic domination
