Can domestic abusers be rehabilitated?


Short answer: Yes, but it takes time and effort.

Really fascinating piece that’s well worth a read. As they say, “100 percent of domestic violence is caused by abusers. Why should the burden to change always be on the victims?”

I think this approach is something that needs a lot more attention. We should not expect women to bear the brunt of the aftermath of abuse and let the abuser just carry on with the same attitudes that made them abuse. There must be an onus on the abuser to change, because they will go on to abuse again if they are not rehabilitated.
