The Role of the Church in Domestic Violence

Faith communities have a unique opportunity to either help or hurt families suffering domestic violence. Hurt comes in the form of clergy siding with the abusive spouse, usually male, to encourage the abused to “give him another chance.” Help comes in the form of clergy holding abusers accountable for their actions, securing the safety of the abused and assisting abusers through remediation programs. Learn more about the findings of a study of the role of faith and clergy in remediating abusive behavior in the Aug. 21, 2010, post by David Briggs on The Association of Religion Data Archives blog, “Ahead of the Trend.”  Use the embedded links to explore national study data from the ARDA archives on the role of faith communities in addressing domestic abuse.
