Domestic Violence is a pattern of abusive behaviour which keeps one in a position of power over the other through the use of fear, intimidation and control. It is a very complex issue as there are many different ways of abusing someone.
It doesn't have to be just physical; it can be Emotional, Mental, Sexual and Financial and can be applied in many ways.
