Domestic Violence

Counseling Center

As the National Domestic Violence Hotline’s website explains:

“Domestic violence does not discriminate. Anyone of any gender, age, race, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic background, or education level can be a victim – or perpetrator – of domestic violence. It can happen to people who are married, living together, or even just dating.

Domestic violence includes behaviors that physically harm, arouse fear, prevent a partner from doing what they wish, or force them to behave in ways they do not want. It includes the use of physical and sexual violence, threats and intimidation, emotional abuse and economic deprivation. Many of these different forms of domestic violence/abuse can be occurring at any one time within the same intimate relationship. Victims of domestic violence often experience diminished self-worth, anxiety, depression, and a general sense of helplessness that can take time and often professional help to overcome.”
