Dating violence happened intentionally in dating relationship to sustain the power and control to the partner. Dating violence included verbal & emotional abusive, sexual abusive and physical abusive. Violence basically was the product of power imbalance between doer and victim, and girls usually were the victims. From the qualitative study of abusive relationship, the process of decision making to get out from the abusive relationship was not easy. The honeymoon phase in the violence cycle that occurs after the abusive behaviour made the victim could not end it easily. There were also internal and external factors from the victim that make difficulties to get out from the relationship. Using Egan’s model, the counseling process started with the target to change the unrealistic optimism by giving information, and facts about the cycle of dating violence. Internal factors such as poor selfesteem, ineffective coping style, and specific anxiety should be handled by using challenging skills. External factors such as potential new dating relationship, social support, should be created with the client. If there was problem with the family background, client should be helped to manage.
