dc.description.abstractServices for domestic violence victims have long assumed that the violence is the main issue. With few exceptions, there has been little effort to focus on the issues that are identified by battered women in a more client-centered approach to helping victims. This study is one of the first to explicitly ask victims of domestic violence about their life goals, strengths, and resources. The most common goals referred to getting or improving housing, finding or improving their job situation, and getting more education. 100 victims of domestic violence participated. Common resources included faith (53%) and personal strengths (47%). Social strengths were also commonly listed, including church support (38%) and family (34%). Legal resources were mentioned less frequently. Risk assessment and safety planning with victims needs to incorporate more issues that are salient to victims.en_US
