  • Dealing with domestic violence in counseling settings is often complex and multidimensional. Both newcomers to the field as well as seasoned mental health professionals, counselors, clergy, and others are often perplexed about how to appropriately deal with cases where this relationship dynamic is revealed. Questions arise in terms of how to hold abusers accountable, how to empower victims, responding to the identification of relationship abuse, and dealing sensitively with issues related to faith and religion should they occur, just to name a few.
