Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behavior that comes in many forms.  In order to gain and/or maintain power and control over another human being, they intimidate through sexual, physical, economic, emotional, psychological and even technological actions.  The abuser utilizes threats and many patterns of coercion to influence control on their victims.

Domestic violence has lived in our societies, communities and families for far too long - it even stems from a generational passage that continues from one generation to another.  These violent acts include any behaviors that intimidate, manipulate, humiliate, isolate, frighten, terrorize, coerce, threaten, blame, hurt, injure, or wound someone.
