Domestic violence: facts and prevention

A household that sees disagreements on even a mildly regular basis can quickly transform into an exhausting experience. One that sees such disputes involving violence can be outright dangerous. When a California family is suffering from domestic violence, piecing relationships back together can often seem impossible. However, there are a number of resources family members can look to in this difficult time of need.

When a family member exhibits anger to the degree of violence, not only can they inflict damage on themselves, but on other individuals. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration recognizes that, although raising the topic can be challenging, it is important that domestic violence issues receive proper attention. One way involves having an intervention during which family members suggest behavioral health treatment. The types of treatment can range from hospitals, community health centers, primary care programs, substance use disorder rehabilitation centers and other supportive programs. There are also the options of group counseling, medication and other types of supportive services. 

Futures Without Violence, an organization working to prevent domestic violence, shares a number of tips families can use to avoid and put an end to harmful situations. One accessible resource involves one's place of work; FWV notes that employees can ask employers about domestic violence programs in the workplace. These programs can be especially beneficial, since many offer free services to employees. Because one in four U.S. women have experienced domestic violence and two out of three children have been exposed to such trauma, the FWV stresses that spreading awareness of the facts alone can make a difference. Those dealing with violence issues at home can look to additional resources on a local level.

  • Best Attorney in the Valley!

    Kendra Thomas is one of the best attorneys I have ever worked with. Kendra and her team at Thomas Law Offices are compassionate and able to get to the heart of the matter. Not only can she quickly take in information, she can also think outside of the box to implement an effective game plan…. - Joseph, a Corporate client

  • Amazing Family Law Advocate!

    Kendra is a very thorough attorney. She paid great attention to detail. She is a pitbull in the courtroom and received compliments from the judge. We won a majority of our motions. I found her to be reasonable and understanding. I highly recommend her!- William, a Divorce client (5 star review)

  • One of the Best Advocates Around!

    I had a complicated case with a lot of assets. We had a business to divide and could not make heads or tails of it. My previous
    attorney messed up the case. However, when we found Thomas Law, the attorney was able to get to the bottom of how our assets should be divided.
    When Ms. Thomas presented the case, the judge realized that she knew her stuff. I had a very good experience with this firm.- Mae, a Family client (5 star review)

  • Competence! The Best Family Law Attorney Around!!

    When I first came to Kendra, was in a panic state. However, after meeting Kendra, I panic no more. I was in a case, where I was being worked “real good”, with an ex who is relentless with absolutely no morals. However, after being in the courtroom with Kendra, I do not believe that he will ever take me back to court. We got everything we wanted. Kendra knew what to ask and how to strategize the case. I would HIGHLY recommend Kendra to anyone involved in a high conflict divorce and/or child custody dispute.- Sharon, a Family client (5 star review)


    I am so grateful to have found Attorney Kendra Thomas to help me through a difficult divorce. She was amazing in getting me the justice I deserved. I have never heard of an attorney that returns calls promptly however Ms. Thomas and her assistant return calls in the same day. She is brilliant both in her intellect and strategy. I will continue to use her in ANY legal matter I am engaged in.- Mary, a Family client (5 star review)
