It is not only institutions that sometimes offer unhelpful responses when people are victimized. Family, friends, and co-workers can be great sources of support, but they can also be sources of stigma, rejection, and blame. Women's personal values can also influence and complicate their protective strategies. Women who are opposed to divorce or hold other values that do not align with the standard recommendations of domestic violence providers are sometimes seen as making poor choices. A multiple criteria decision making framework can provide ways of working with women who have social or personal circumstances that are also high priorities for them.
