And this applies to everyone – not only adults, but also children.

Of course, cases of domestic violence against children are unfair. But the therapist should not look at the situation from such a position. After all, this means recognizing the victim in the child, which will not help him cope with the problem. Pity does not help him move forward. Continue reading
