Domestic Abuse: Shame, Silence & Seclusion
Little is known about victims of abuse and violence, as it is hard for them to break their silence and tell their family, friends, neighbors and colleagues.
They fear the interactional and emotional process associated with the first disclosure of the incident. Common fears include shame and threats made by the abuser, and so, they continue to remain silent and seclude themselves from friends, family and society. This feeling of loneliness and helplessness is so overwhelming that they do not want to seek help. This makes them even more vulnerable for the perpetrator to take advantage of them. This behavior can create dangerous situations for the victim and their children, until they realise that they must take care of themselves and seek help.
