Domestic Abuse: How to Minimize Danger

Domestic Abuse: How to Minimize Danger


Domestic abuse in a relationship is dangerous on its own but being stuck at home due to COVID-19 makes it even more dangerous. Even relationships that are healthy get exacerbated when they are tested with conditions such as limited space, not having ways to regulate themselves, changes in routines and responsibilities, etc. Add alcohol, drugs and the stress brought on by kids with their unused energy and it can become even more challenging.

The rate of reported domestic abuse has increased since corona virus throughout the country.

The best way to respond to abuse is to remove yourself to safety as soon as possible. However, if you are in a physically abusive relationship it’s important to have a clear idea of what you can do to make is safer for yourself.

Survivors of abuse are likely going through constant monitoring so it may be hard for them to get this information. If you know someone who is in a relationship with an abusive partner then please check-in to see if they need support or a get-away plan and please verbally convey this information this to them.
