Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior as part of a pattern of power and control perpetrated by one partner against another. It includes physical violence, sexual violence, threats, financial/economic abuse, reproductive abuse, and emotional/psychological abuse. The frequency and severity of domestic violence may vary but can take place in heterosexual or same-sex relationships, or between former spouses or partners.
In abusive relationships, there may be a cycle of abuse during which an act of violence is committed, followed by a period of reconciliation and calm. It is important to remember that domestic violence can happen to anyone and there is help and support available.
