June 2012 will see the definition of Domestic Violence broadened beyond physical abuse to include other forms of abuse, including emotional and psychological abuse. The broadening of this definition is not only intended to protect the primary victims but also children who may be exposed to various forms of abuse within a family situation. Reported incidents of Domestic Violence throughout Australia have been steadily increasing as the support to such victims has been increasing over the past five years.
