Abstract

In recent years, domestic violence takes alarming proportions and emerged as a significant public, health and social problem. This report aims to explore the awareness of students on the issue of domestic violence, their knowledge of the legislation and the need for additional training. The survey results indicate that the majority of those surveyed have known victims of violence and one of every ten questioned had been subjected to violence. A considerable part of today`s young people perceive it as a problem that must be resolved within the family (19.00%). Interest in involvement in training programs declare 78.00 percent of students.
