Overcome Books

Victims of domestic violence have a difficult time when they seek help from professionals and support agencies. Sometimes they are made to feel that the abuse is their fault and that they should be the ones to stop the abuse. There are times when domestic abuse victims are accused of neglect by professionals when their children are exposed to violence because they are told it is their duty to protect their children. Often, abusers are not punished for what are they are doing. The book, The System Sucks What Victims Of Domestic Violence Want You To Know, is based on a qualitative research study conducted with victims of domestic violence. It explores the experiences that victims of domestic violence have had with social workers and what was the outcome of these encounters. The participants speak about both postive and negative experiences with social workers. The book, The System Sucks What Victims Of Domestic Violence Want You To Know is available for sale on Amazon.
