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.
