What Does Domestic Violence Involve?

 

A Sad Woman

 

  • It occurs in all age, racial, socio-economic, educational, occupational, and religious groups.
  • It occurs within intimate relationships.
  • It typically involves repetitive behaviour encompassing different types of abuse.
  • It is a systematic way of maintaining power and control over victims.
  • It is a learned behaviour.
  • It is caused by the perpetrator, NOT by the victim or the relationship.
  • It is a criminal offence when physical or sexual force, actual or threatened is used.
  • It is experienced more often by women.
  • It results in more severe forms of violence and more serious injuries to female victims than to male victims.
  • It may present increased risk to the victim and children at the time of separation from the abuser.
  • It evokes victim behaviour that is often about survival.
