Domestic violence, including intimate partner violence, is a pattern of behaviors used by one partner to gain or maintain power and control over the other partner. 1
Domestic violence can be physical, emotional, financial, sexual, technological, and/or spiritual. This can include any behaviors that intimidate, manipulate, humiliate, isolate, frighten, coerce, threaten, blame, hurt, or injure someone. These behaviors occur in a cycle that can become increasingly explosive and dangerous over time.
