The domestic violence, the main activity in the social work, is a global public health problem and overtakes infections diseases as main cause of morbidity and premature death. This social virus stops the evolution of humanity, in the 21st century representing a social threat to human rights, in so far as it has negative consequences on health, on the right to life and the right of every person to be treated with respect.Many events are organized in the context of activism campaigns against domestic violence, wanting to make prevention more affective in society, but also at procedural measures used in these situations of aggressivity. The conscious involvement of community consisting in social workers, lawyers, police officers, teachers and important civil anonymous contributions represents a concrete social proof of kairopraxis in the misappropriation of domestic violence; deviating in the sens of constructing assumption of the human factor through education available for the victims and aggressors, too: for victims in the context of collecting signs of violence in the early stage and for aggressors to avoid their loss in society. Kairopraxis, intellectual property concept. The kairopraxis is based on the ancient greek notions of praxis which is activity, action; and Kairos, the divinity of Ancient Greece that symbolized the opportunity, the right moment to intervene in the field of temporality in order to strengthen the well target of action. The kairopraxis defines, qualifies those intentional actions developped in accordance with the moral laws; it validates the good in its pure essence, whether it bears the form of a profesional conduct, faithful to a deontology in question, or it is made anonymous in small steps in every day life in terms of meritorious acts, simple gesture of compasion, kindness, eliminating altogether that interest in the reprehensible sense of the term, these actions sum up the responsable and defining trajectories of the people in the evolution of society.
