Re: [SPECIAL GUEST] Family Dramas

There are lots of formal ways to reach out for help, places like the ReachOut forums exist in part to help people find the places they can go. I think along with knowing those formal places, it's a good idea to think about who can help you have what might feel like a pretty scary conversation. People who can help are teachers, school counsellors, friends you might trust or maybe a sibling. The main thing is you don't have to reach out alone! There are people who would be happy to help you get some more support Smiley Happy

  • What are the long lasting effects for children who have been exposed to family violence?

 

Effects can range depending on the individual- Low self-esteem, sadness, depression, fear and anxiety.

Its important and often feels better once people talk to someone- a friend you trust, a teacher, helplines on the phone and online if someone feels those things

 

effects can vary from person to person. some long lasting effects can include:

  • re victimisation
  • entering a relationship with similar dynamics to what one was exposed to
  • difficulty in relationships
  • problems with self esteerm

please note these are general effects and can also occur in people who have not been exposed to family violence

 

Re: [SPECIAL GUEST] Family Dramas

I am really digging this chat at the moment, I'm pretty dang impressed at how much you all already know too! 

 

There’s a lot of talk in the media about family violence and a lot of the time it refers to males being the ones being violent. Why are males always getting ‘bashed’ in the media when females can be really abusive and controlling too in relationships and families?

Well they're being hit hard in the media mostly because it's a fact that males are way more likely to be the person hurting other people in a domestic situation. Unfortunately it's as simple as that. 

Re: [SPECIAL GUEST] Family Dramas

Its true females can be perpetrators when it comes to family violence but the sad fact is that most deaths and serious injuries are against women by male perpetrators. More than 1 female is killed each week in Australia by a male partner or former partner. A third of females have experienced physical violence and 1 fifth have had sexual violence.
We know most guys are not violent and are respectful but most of the violence out there in families are by guys. Sad fact but we can all do something about it!
