 What is domestic violence?

Domestic violence is any behavior that aims at gaining power and control over a spouse, partner or family member.

Abuse is a learned behavior; it is not caused by anger, mental problems, drugs or alcohol, or other common excuses. Unfortunately, it has become a global problem.

Domestic violence can affect anyone of any age or gender. Whether it’s physical or psychological, domestic abuse is destructive for both the battered and the batterer.
