DOMESTIC VIOLENCE - SOCIOPSYCHOLOGICAL PHENOMENON OF MODERN SOCIETY
Keywords:Violence, family, children, women, men, partner, crime, physical, psychological, abuse
Domestic violence is one of the worst social phenomenon, given the devastating consequences it leaves on the psyche of the victims, because those who inflict injuries at the same time represent persons who would be there to express love, and secondly, it is the person who often a victim cannot escape from. Men are more often victims lately, but they are most common and prevalent perpetrators of violence. The higher the degree of gender inequality in the society, the higher is the chance to get domestic violence increased. In Western countries, the majority of domestic violence is outlawed, but in other civilizations such violence is often considered either legally or socially acceptable. What is most troublesome is that the victims of domestic violence continue to form as people prone to violence and they oftentimes repeat or justify violence themselves.
