Addressing Domestic Violence in Faith Communities

 
Domestic violence is a serious concern that can affect members of any congregation or faith community. As such, faith leaders often encounter both victims and abusers in their ministry and should be equipped to respond appropriately.
 
New York Theological Seminary, in conjunction with the New York Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence and the Governor’s Office of Faith Based Community Development Services, has prepared a set of guidelines for faith leaders to respond to situations of domestic violence in their communities. Although the guidelines were prepared specifically for New York state, they may be helpful for any faith leader in “providing support for victims of domestic violence and in holding abusers accountable.”
