Representatives of the Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., took part in the exchange STOP Violence.


In order to understand domestic violence on children and society at all, it is important to enter the world of domestic violence. Domestic violence includes many forms of physical and emotional abuse, as well as neglect carried out by family members. It may include a single act of violence, or a number of acts that form a pattern of abuse. Domestic violence can have serious and sometimes fatal consequences for victims, especially for children, and for those who see or hear the violence. The consequences that children have in living in such an environment affect the formation of their personality. Children who have grown up in families where there is domestic violence over time show deviant behavior. The activities planned in the training enable the participants to raise the level of their knowledge about this topic through them. Becoming aware of this problem will contribute to early detection of cases of domestic violence as well as prevention of it. Children of abuse feel isolated and vulnerable. They are starved for attention, affection and approval. Because mom is struggling to survive, she is often not present for her children. Because dad is so consumed with controlling everyone, he also is not present for his children. These children become physically, emotionally and psychologically abandoned. Our main purpose in this project is to raise awareness among young people about this problem in our societies. Sumnal study addresses Romani women’s experience with domestic violence and their knowledge of the victim services. With this research, we had found out that in Romani’s families, domestic violence is more represented. For this reason, the accent of this project is preventing and recognizing domestic violence in Roma population.
