Each year, 168,000 Ohio children are exposed to domestic violence, and this has lasting effects on them. To bring light to this issue, HealthPath partnered with Case Western Reserve University on Impact of Domestic Violence Exposure: Recommendations to Better Serve Ohio’s Children. This report explores the short- and long-term effects and economic impact of domestic violence exposure on children and recommendations on the best way to support them. The paper also lists evidence-based and promising interventions that can reduce the negative effects of domestic violence on children and help build the protective factors that promote resilience.
According to the documentary, when boys are growing up, they often learn in order to be respected – to be a man – there also needs to be violence.
October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a time for all communities to learn about domestic violence and to do their part to help prevent it. The Ohio Domestic Violence Network defines domestic abuse when a person uses a pattern of coercive and assaultive behaviors to obtain power and control over another person.
Many experts agree that prevention-focused programs are needed to educate youth about healthy relationships. In particular, men can play a critical role in preventing domestic violence by serving as positive role models to young boys.
“The majority of men are not violent and want to prevent violence in their communities,” said India Harris-Jones, prevention coordinator, Ohio Domestic Violence Network. “The best way to engage men in these communities is by having the majority speak to the minority that are violent and help them understand other ways to work out their problems.”
The trainings have impacted many participants, further encouraging them to take a stand on domestic violence. Clark Echols, a participant in one of the OH-MAN Columbus trainings, was so inspired that he started an OH-MAN branch in Cincinnati to start engaging men in his own community. In June 2015, he showed the documentary, The Mask You Live In, to a crowd of more than 100 individuals, who all shared interest in joining the organization to help prevent domestic violence in their community.
