Physical violence is one of the most common types of violence in the world. It can range anywhere from a little shove to murder, causing the same impact on the victim, pain. Although recent studies show that the rate of physical violence has declined in the past 25 years, the remaining violation is still pretty high. Luckily, over the past years people have worked really hard, and are continuing to do so, in maintaining to keep the rate of physical violence to continually decrease. Now a day, the general public is open to so many prevention ideas and services that just about anybody could be protected and put a stop to physical violence. They just need a lot of courage to take that one brave step in speaking up for themselves or somebody they know. During this presentation you will get a chance to learn the following; what is physical violence and what it includes of, things you could do to prevent somebody you know or yourself from physical violence, services you could contact, and much more. This presentation will make you learn physical violence in a whole different level and what people could do to stop it. You would probably want to cry learning what people have to go through when being physically violated. So grab a tissue and let’s begin! Physical violence, as you could tell from its title, is the act of violating someone physically. In other words, harassing someone with your body or an object is known as physical violence. As soon as you touch someone else forcibly, with your body, an object or anything else that causes physical contact with that person because of you, is known as physical violence. Usually, during this act, since it is mostly done forcibly, the victim often feels uncomfortable and/or pain. Physical violence can range anywhere from a simple shove/push to murder. It could also happen to anyone; from a new-born baby to an elderly, and the impact it has on the victim is just devastating, not only for them, but for others also. Physical violence is obviously torture, and this violence could lead to psychological violence for the victim, so they feel twice the pain. The effect this type of violence has on the society is just a shame because seeing how low some people's act can get is just a pity. Physical violence leads to the perpetrator being injured, harmed, mentally challenged or killed.” It usually includes of: pushing, shoving, pulling, shaking, slapping, biting, hitting, punching, kicking, strangling, throwing objects at partner, restraining, throwing the partner, use of weapons at hand like a frying pan or broom, or use of conventional weapons such as a gun or knife.” That is essentially what physical violence is and the forms it is commonly found acted. The general public could do so much ahead of time to prevent themselves or someone they know from being physically abused. People have thought of great ideas and have shared it among others so that we could be protected from this type of violence. Throughout the following paragraphs you will be learning some tips and tricks from preventing yourself for someone you know from being physically abused. Many people need to understand that confidence is the key in preventing one from being physically abused. If a person stands up for them self to the perpetrator, who is physically abusing them, then the matter could stop there and not go to dramatic measures where it gets more serious and dangerous. Although this is a very tough step to take it’s also the most important one. The victim should start to take notice in what causes the perpetrator in behaving so violent, and once they see the pattern they should consult with an anger control management organization (or any organization depending on the situation) and stay away so that they’re not a target during those scenes. If a person is being physically abused, it’s most likely that they’re being abused more than once. That person should try to establish where they are mostly being abused, like for example children, a women or a man could be physically violated at their own house. Just in case for emergencies, if the perpetrator becomes really aggressive and is in the state of really harming you, or perhaps even killing you, then you should definitely have an escape plan. Know that place really well if you know that at you constantly and purposely get hurt there, or try to avoid that place if you can. After that, create an escape plan so that you could protect yourself from danger. Remember if at home and you’re trying to escape, avoid your bathrooms and kitchen, and run to the closest room with a lock and a phone. If in case you are trapped in the scene where you’re about o be physically attacked and you see that there is no way out, you should do the following: stay calm and use anger reducing language, make eye contact with the perpetrator as a sign of respect, increase your personal space by taking a step or two back, create a barrier between you and the perpetrator like a desk or table, use formal language like Mr., Ms, or Mrs., keep your voice low, don’t turn back, call for assistance when you feel that the matter is getting worse, never ever try to grab a weapon, try to look for a golden chance to escape, and lastly never try to touch the perpetrator in any sort of way or try to kick him out of that area. And so, I would like to conclude saying that those are some preventions someone could use to avoid themselves form being physically abused. If you yourself are not suffering from being physically abused and you know someone who is, then the right thing to do would be to spread the word to them about this prezi (and to others also). You may be like an angel to that person, saving them from the pain filled in the torture they have to suffer through, and who knows you may also be saving that person’s life! Those are just some ideas for preventing one from being physically abused, for more ideas you could visit the following sites listed in my bibliography. Another thing someone could do to prevent themselves from being physically abused is build a network. They could build a network of trustworthy friends, neighbours, family members, and/or co-workers which they could depend on for help during emergencies. They should inform those people that that they are suffering from physical abuse. Together, they could come up with a secret code, signal, or password so that the victim could use it during emergencies This way the network could know when that person is in danger and immediately contact authorities to help the victim. If you think that your case of being physically abused has taken dramatic measures, and the preventions are not likely to provide you with any help, then it’s time for you to seek professional assistance. You could contact the following services listed below because all of them provide excellent service for victims who are suffering physical abuse or have been.
