Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence Therapists in Denver Colorado for both perpetrators and victims 

Statistics + Prevelence 

According to the Colorado Coalition Against Domestic Violence, one in three women and one in seven men in the state have experienced physical violence by an intimate partner. However, we recognize that men are also likely to report domestic violence less often. The impact of domestic violence goes beyond just physical harm and affects the mental and emotional well-being of both parties involved and their families. While both men and women can be victims of domestic violence, statistically, men are more likely to be perpetrators of this form of violence.

In Colorado, men were responsible for approximately 70% of domestic violence incidents in 2019, according to data from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. However, it's essential to recognize that men can also be victims of domestic violence, and they need the support and resources necessary to recover from this traumatic experience.

Healing From Domestic Violence 

The emotional toll of domestic violence can impact everyone involved in different ways. Survivors may experience fear, anxiety, depression, and a lack of trust in others. They may feel like they are alone in their situation, but it's essential to remember that there are support services available to help them heal. Friends and family members may also feel overwhelmed, worried, or frustrated by their inability to help their loved ones effectively. 

For perpetrators of domestic violence, we recognize that these behaviors are often learned from being a prior witness to domestic violence in your past. Additionally, domestic violence often occurs while under the influence of a substance. Anger management is another common self reported feature of domestic violence. The Men's Mental Wellness Center offers domestic violence counseling in Denver for all of these issues.

Healing from domestic violence can be a long and challenging journey, especially for men who may feel societal pressure to remain stoic and avoid expressing their emotions. However, there are many resources available to men including men's support groups, individual therapy, and neurofeedback therapy. These resources provide a safe space for men to express their emotions, receive guidance, and learn about healthy coping mechanisms. It's important to remember that healing is a process, and there's no shame in seeking help when you need it.
