General

Domestic violence is violence largely between family members and intimate partners, usually taking place at home and is defined as the use of force by one person to maintain power and control over the other. Most often, domestic violence occurs between intimate partners and not only includes physical violence, but also verbal and emotional abuse. Societal attitudes, beliefs, the abuser's personal history and desire to control his partner are the greatest contributing factors to domestic violence.
