Understanding Domestic Violence & Abusive Relationships:
- Domestic abuse is any coercive behavior that a person uses to exploit, injure, mistreat or violate his/her intimate partner. The tactics an abuser uses include intimidation, threats; put downs, isolation, humiliation and other verbal sabotage as well as physical abuse.
- Domestic violence is unpredictable, yet there is a pattern that is repeated with each episode. It starts with the honeymoon phase, where things seem to be running smoothly and going well. It then moves on to the intimidation phase, the actual violence, and then back to the honeymoon/forgiveness phase. However, the level of violence gets worse after each incident and the duration of the violence is longer.
- Domestic violence is one of the most chronically under reported crimes in America.
- It can take many forms including frequent conflict, physical or sexual violence and often involves financial secrecy, dependence and restrictions. Abuse cuts across all socio-economic boundaries, all ages, both genders, all religions and educational levels. It is based on the principles of power and control and is perpetrated most frequently against women (85%), but is growing amongst men (15%).
- Abuse is no longer a family matter. It has grown into a crime.
- Domestic abuse goes through a cycle and can escalate from threats to verbal abuse, physical violence and even murder.
- Conflict and anger, spiraling out of control, usually results in some form of verbal abuse, but can also lead to physical violence.
- Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women between the ages 15-44 in the United States (Source: Uniform Crime Reports, FBI)
- About one out of every four women in America will be physically assaulted or raped by an intimate partner at some point in their lives. American women are more likely to be assaulted, injured, raped or killed by a male partner than by any other type of assailant.
- Besides physical injuries, domestic violence can lead to depression, anxiety, panic attacks, substance abuse and post-traumatic stress disorder. Abuse may also trigger suicide attempts or psychotic episodes.
