Premarital Education: Primary Prevention for Domestic Violence
While the reality of domestic violence in the Muslim community has been challenging to acknowledge, the reality that it exists has been increasingly accepted. Over the past twenty years recognition has increased, and the numbers of Muslim mental health and human service professionals focused on addressing violence among Muslims has increased. This has led to education, and increased awareness of the need for comprehensive culturally sensitive services to prevent and intervene in this public health issue. Premarital education and marriage preparation are among the ways to prevent domestic violence.
