Understanding Domestic Violence
What is domestic violence? It takes many forms, but in general domestic violence is a pattern of violent and coercive behavior used by one partner in a relationship to control another. It affects all communities, regardless of income, race or religion. Domestic violence can include physical, emotional and sexual abuse, financial control and social isolation. Abusive partners use fear and intimidation to establish power and control over another person, including the threat or use of violence.
