  1. Hidden trauma : the mostly missed diagnosis of domestic violence.

    Article - En anglais

    Domestic violence is an epidemic that rages throughout our society.

    Despite its ovewhelming incidence and prevalence, this abuse goes unrecognized and unaddressed in the majority of health care settings.

    Nonetheless, battered women expect health care providers to initiate discussions about abuse.

    Improved awareness through education at all levels and protocols will help interrupt the cycle of intergenerational learned violence.

    Without intervention, domestic violence is perpetuated and escalates.
