Domestic Violence: 

Is an unhealthy pattern of behavior that exposes a partner (either past or present) or family member to the threat of physical force or actual force. It can take many forms & is not just experienced physically; emotional & mental abuse is also included & can be just as painful. The purpose of these acts is to breed fear & compliance by establishing power & control over the victim. It is an extremely prevalent epidemic within our nation & affects all ages, races, social classes & genders. Children exposed to abuse by their parents are much more likely to continue the cycle of abuse in their own relationships as adults.
