Today begins Domestic Violence Awareness Month. While it can be a difficult topic, it is important to spread awareness in order to help those that may be affected, and to remind survivors that they are not alone in their struggles. Throughout the month, we will be sharing information on Domestic Violence.
The Cycle of Violence occurs in abusive relationships. It includes three cycles: Honeymoon, Tension-building, and Explosion. Without intervention, the frequency and severity of the abuse tends to increase over time with each repeated cycle.
