Suggestions made by the participants to prevent violence and to help victims and perpetrators are also presented. » (p. 3) Among other facts, the study reveals that « [...] for both men and women, the family is a non-negligible source of physical violence [...] » (p. 9), and stresses «[...] the lack of resources to separate victims from an aggressor in the same family [...]. » (p. 9)
