Greek communities are encouraged to take the survey created to get a deeper understanding of attitudes towards domestic violence.
The survey, being undertaken by psychology student Helen Tachos to complete her honours degree, will enable her to get an overview of the communities and different cultures attitudes towards domestic violence.
Helen told Neos Kosmos that “Greeks tend to be more independent, quite close within our families; family is extremely important and just looking at the nature of our closeness we want to see whether that influences our attitudes”.
“People will tolerate some behaviour because there are cultural influences,” she said, as now-a-days we tend to live in a society amongst different pockets of people who still carry strong traditions.
“I think it’s important that we try to understand those,” Helen explained; stating how this is a concept just as vital to understand.
“If we aren’t getting a good understanding on what the community thinks, we don’t really know the message that needs to get across”.
