Description Destigmatizing people with domestic violence is an important but difficult task. The aim is to change the stereotype of a person suffering from domestic violence so that it is not socially isolated or sanctioned in order to change the attitude of its surroundings. It means familiarizing the public with the manifestations of domestic violence, not perceiving them as "sensations" and "differences", but being able to understand them and understand the affected people or help them adequately. From the above it is clear that the sooner we start with education, the better. That is why the school is a suitable environment where through the encounter of pupils and students with a person with experience of domestic violence, the process of seeing the world can be “seen by the other”. Another task of the school is to talk about domestic violence directly, as it can affect everyone in the classroom and society. Social stigma refers to a defect in a person's social identity. The aim of the present text is to familiarize the wider pedagogical community with the stigma of behavioral disorders related to domestic violence, and to suggest possible ways to best integrate the stigma-related issues into the curriculum of the subject fields in question in line with the Framework Educational Programs for Primary Education (RVP ZV) and grammar school education (RVP GV).
