The purpose of this study was to explore the perceptions of service providers who treat domestic violence survivors. The researcher surveyed 18 service providers at a variety of agencies throughout the Los Angeles County, California.
Results indicated that individuals who are being abused suffer from an array of mental health disorders, with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder being most prevalent. Results also show that children are severely affected by domestic violence, often causing them behavioral problems in the future which may even cause them to become victims or perpetrators themselves. Lastly, results suggest that the majority of service providers working with this population do not believe it is the woman's choice to stay in abusive relationships.
