Understanding Domestic Violence:

Domestic violence encompasses a wide range of abusive behaviors within a domestic or intimate partner relationship. This can include:

  • Physical abuse: Hitting, kicking, shoving, or any other form of physical assault.
  • Emotional abuse: Verbal threats, insults, humiliation, and intimidation.
  • Sexual abuse: Forced sexual activity or any form of sexual assault.
  • Financial abuse: Controlling finances, denying access to money, or sabotaging credit.
  • Psychological abuse: Isolation, gaslighting, or manipulating emotions.

The Impact of Domestic Violence:

Domestic violence has devastating consequences, impacting not only the victim but also children, family members, and the broader community. Victims may experience physical injuries, emotional trauma, anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
