Domestic Violence (DV) is a global issue which inflicts pressure on the society. Gender paradigm and advancement of information technology have given DV an evolutionary explanation. This study presents innovative methods to provide families with self-report instrument for personal safety, education on family values, and family therapy supported by professional community members via cloud computing platform. Since cloud computing service can make education accessible to the needy people based on their demand in a speedy and secure manner, the infrastructure is suggested to be introduced in every community to curb DV in the long run.
