Dv and Sexual Violence 

What is Domestic Violence?

Domestic Violence is a pattern of abusive behaviors, with the intent of maintaining power and control over an intimate partner.
These behaviors include emotional abuse, intimidation, coercion and threats, isolation, economic abuse, minimization, denial, and blame, using children, using privilege, and physical and sexual violence.
Some of these behaviors can be charged criminally, but most are rarely reported or charged.
