How do I know if I am a victim of domestic violence?

Thousands of men, women, and their children live in constant fear and pain as a result of family violence. The abuse can be physical, ranging from shoving, slapping, punching and stabbing. It can also be psychological, including threats or other verbal abuse.

One does not have to be physically battered to be considered a victim of domestic abuse. Domestic violence is defined as a pattern of abusive behavior by one individual over another in the context of an intimate partner relationship. The abuser uses power and control to intimidate, isolate, threaten, blame, and coerce.
