Numerous professionals have expressed concerns about working with clients who are either actively in a domestic violence relationship or who have a history of domestic violence relationships. Many times, those clients can have many layers of trauma from the relationship, family history, and/or judicial system. This population often lacks a support system due to isolation resulting from the abuse and are unsure about their rights and next steps. Best practice and quality of care are touchstones that professionals can utilize to contribute to a coordinated community response to end violence and abuse.
