Case Study 6

1403 words - 6 pages

Abuse is not only physical, but it always hurts. Domestic violence is one of the leading causes of premature death. The offender is not always the killer, but the actions of the offender can be fatal. Sometimes the pressures of abuse may cause the victim to commit suicide, die of heart attack, or possibly stroke. People who are exposed to domestic violence often experience physical, mental, or spiritual shifts that worsen over time if not properly addressed. The key elements of domestic abuse are intimidation, humiliating the other person and physical injuries. The offender is very persuasive, charming, handsome, and most times established. The offender appears to be a standup guy until he ...view middle of the document...

When some victims are tired of being abused and decide to take action, they allow the offender to talk them out of pressing charges or following through. Many victims will call the police as a scare tactic and allow the attacker to go free. When the offender see that there are no consequences for their actions and they are tired of beating on the same victim they move on to the next person. In the course of trying to charm the next person everything about their current victim aggravates them. Ben and Carrie have been dating for six months, they have just moved into a new apartment with each other. Ben came home the day after they moved in and asked Carrie to bring him a can of beer, when she said she was too busy to help, he got up and slapped her across her face. Todd had just gotten home from a long day at work and wanted to spend time with his wife, when he saw that she was sleeping, he got on top of her and began to force himself onto her. When she objected, he covered her mouth to silence her and finished with his lewd act until he was satisfied.

The victim has a poor self-image and usually puts up with abusive behavior. The victim is economically and emotionally dependent on the abuser. Sometimes they are uncertain of their needs and have very low self-esteem. They have unrealistic beliefs that they can somehow change the abuser. The victim believes that jealousy is proof of love. The victims of domestic violence often abuse alcohol or other substances, have been previously abused. The victim is sometimes pregnant, poor, and has limited support. Some victims do not speak English or come from foreign countries. After enduring the abuse for long periods of time the victim suffers from depression, stress disorders and psychosomatic complaints. The victim often appears to be nervous or anxious. They contemplate or attempts suicide, or self-harms. The victim believes in stereotypical sex roles and they accept blame and guilt for the violence. After the abuse starts the victim often becomes socially isolated, avoids interaction, and never seems to be alone. The victim eventually leaves the offender but after several attempts. Low self-esteem often leads to way too much desire to be taken care of. When Jessica got her paycheck on Friday her coworkers asked her if she wanted to go shopping with them. She told them that she could not make it this time, disappointed, they finally left. She could not bear to tell them that she had to hand over all her hard earned money to Eddie, her live in boyfriend, or else he would get upset. Alyssa had two tickets to the Powell Symphony Hall. She had won them at work and had been looking forward to going all day. When she got home her excitement vanished. When she told her husband about the tickets, he forbade her to go telling her “only stupid people go to the symphony, stay home and clean” Alyssa obliged, for fear of what could happen if she objected, and cried herself to sleep that night.
