Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behavior used by one partner to gain or maintain power and control over another intimate partner. Domestic violence can be physical, sexual, emotional, economic, psychological actions or threats of actions that influence another person. This includes any behaviors that intimidate, manipulate, humiliate, isolate, frighten, terrorize, coerce, threaten, blame, hurt, injure, or wound someone.
Domestic violence is not a disagreement, a marital spat, or an anger management problem. Domestic violence includes abusive, disrespectful, and hurtful behaviors that one partner chooses to use against the other partner to degrade and humiliate the partner.
