Recrudescence of Domestic Violence Cases and Psychosocial Experience of Communities in the Lubumbashi City in Democratic Republic of Congo (the)


Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine the psychosocial determinants that affect the behavior of communities and particularly those of perpetrators and victims of violence (in its many forms) within Congolese society in general. The investigations were carried out in the city of Lubumbashi in the southeast of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The starting point was the resurgence of cases of domestic and family violence recorded more than ten years ago in this city. This situation is worrying and even affects public health issues (psychosocial experience of communities). To this end, clinical psychology is best suited to address these respondents and how to implement an intervention approach. The findings of this article are insightful and fundamental in that they consider strategies that fall under a psychoeducational approach.
