Domestic violence, also commonly referred to as “intimate partner violence” is an American epidemic. Usually understood as the abuse of a spouse or romantic partner, domestic violence may also describe the victimization of children, elderly relatives, or other family members.

Domestic violence can include different types of abuse and may manifest in a variety of ways, such as:

(a)Physical violence that can lead to injuries such as bruises, cuts, or fractures (broken bones);

(b)Sexual violence, including sexual assault;

(c)Emotional abuse, which includes threats, name-calling, put-downs, and humiliation. It can also involve controlling behavior, such as telling the victim how to act or dress and not letting the victim see family or friends;

(d)Economic abuse, or controlling access to money;

(e)Stalking, which is repeated, unwanted contact that causes fear or concern for the safety of the victim. This can include watching or following the victim. There may also be a digital component where a stalker sends repeated, unwanted phone calls, texts, or social media messages.
