Abstract

Victims of domestic violence present a challenge to law enforcement and emergency room personnel. The authors propose a helping approach to assist these professionals. This paradigm is composed of: active and empathetic listening, acceptance without judgment, identifying victims’ strengths, honoring victims as experts, and the process of leaving an abusive relationship.
