Emergency responders see a wide variety of difficult scenes and interact with challenging situations on a regular basis. There is something unique, though, about domestic cruelty.
Domestic cruelty incidents may cause emergency responders to develop a cynical or calloused view of some of these situations, as they see the victim of the cruelty not do anything to protect themselves, or return to situations they deem dangerous or unbearable.
On the flip side, domestic cruelty incidents can hit an emergencerry responder right in the heart, causing an emotionally challenging reaction that may make it hard to walk away and not be affected long-term.
Responding to domestic cruelty incidents can cause short-term, long-term and cumulative trauma. This class seeks to explain the reactions and responses that may occur, as well as explain the domestic situations that house the cruelty.
Warning: may trigger trauma responses.
