At last the court accepted domestic violence classes! Phew! It took years for social activist and psychologist to prove the evils that happen behind closed doors, and how it affects the society and its residers. Cases such as physical abuse, mental torture, child abuse has been common ever, but as these were family affairs the court denied intrusion. Outcome? A distressed and physically abused wife, a psychologically imbalanced child, anguished family members and a sneaky neighbor but scared to help. In short a miserable, unhappy livelihood.
Cases of domestic violence are not just family affairs; it encompasses the society as whole. The daily shrieks and shouts of both distressed and distressor wake the society to the violator’s internal matters, but with none stepping forward to avoid the issue. All remain dumb spectator to the domestic rigmarole, and shun intrusion as this only means inviting more problems for oneself. People just helplessly witnessed such cases of extremes, where members of the family are badly beaten up and abused, until lately some handful of social activist took a stand for it. Even the courts denied interfering in such household matters, with hardly any law to proclaim it as crime. It’s only when doctors and psychologist explained such issues as unnatural and unruly, and the tortured ones actually took a stand against such misdoings, did the court actually turned back to give a serious look into the matter.
And now, finally with matter been given full justice, the extent has diminished with time. Not just this, courts have allowed special permission to counselors to carry out domestic violence classes to cure abusers and distressors. This has witnessed the growth of anger management classes and workshops in recent years. Now this latest improvement is available both online and offline.
