DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Domestic violence is a conflict between family and/or members of a household, involving danger in physical harm or fear of physical harm or sexual assault. This includes spouses or former spouses, those involved in a dating relationship, married or blood-related adults. Any threatening or violent act could be considered domestic violence.

Consequences of Domestic Violence:

Ignoring domestic violence or violent behaviors of domination, intimidation and manipulation can be destructive and dangerous. If the violence and abuse goes on without getting help, a person could put themselves at great risk. Not reporting occurrences of domestic violence can hurt everyone involved and especially harmful to children.
