What Are The Effects Of Domestic Violence On Men?
When women engage in acts of domestic violence on men, it is usually used as a means of controlling the man. Most men are embarrassed by the abuse and often chose not to report it because of their embarrassment. The result is that the abuse can continue for a long time before the man takes action to protect himself. Often this results in a loss of self-esteem for the man. The impact from the abuse can affect every area of a man’s life, including absenteeism from work, emotional problems, physical health problems, and many other negative side effects. Domestic violence between parents also impacts the children, leading to feelings of insecurity, anger and fear.
