Family and Domestic Violence
According to the United States Department of Justice, domestic violence is any pattern of abusive behavior occurring in a relationship often used by one partner who wants to maintain or gain power and control over the other intimate partner. According to Friday (1991), domestic violence can be sexual, physical, economic, emotional, or psychological actions or actions of threats that influence the other person in a relationship. The violence includes all behaviors that manipulate, intimidate, humiliate, frighten, isolate, coerce, hurt, injure, threaten, wound, blame, or terrorize the other person.
In the United States, according to the United States Department of Justice, the major types of domestic violence in most relationships are as follows:
Physical Abuse: Physical abuses amongst partners include denial of services such as medical care, freedom or forcing a partner to use drug and/or alcohol.
Sexual Abuse: Sexual abuse involves coercing or attempting to coerce sexual behavior or contact without a partner’s consent. Most of the reported cases of sexual abuse include marital rape, forced sex after physical violence, attacking someone’s sexual parts, or treating someone in a sexually demeaning way.
