What Is Domestic Violence?
Domestic violence is often described as violence against an intimate partner, sexual assault, or stalking. The violence can take many forms such as physical, emotional, psychological, sexual, or economic. It can also include threats of violence to a family member, pet, or even threats of self harm. These types of violent actions can create feelings of intimidation, depression, fear, or terror in the victims. Abusive behavior like this can continue for extended periods of time, even years.
