in abusive relationships themselves, (Cleak et al., 2014). Domestic violence is a crime against humanity. It violates a person’s basic human rights and is the main cause of homicide and suicide between intimate partners. From societies view, domestic violence is discrimination against women. That is why laws like VAWA (Violence Against Women Act), has been put into place. There is no doubt about the effects domestic violence has on children, family, and the community. Losing a member of the community can be an awful thing and can lead to others wondering why she didn’t speak up and why they didn’t notice the violence. Family violence negatively impacts nearly everyone in the community. As a human service profession, it is our goal and duty to educate of societal and cultural norms and help promote more laws for harsher punishments for those who commit acts of domestic violence. Many suffer from these forms of domestic violence and it is important that the cycle of abuse does not continue and that is why human service professionals fight so hard about this topic.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
