Domestic violence occurs when one person in a relationship uses power to gain control over another. The abuse can be physical, sexual, emotional, financial or spiritual. Abusers gain control in many ways – through intimidation, coercion, threats and isolation. They may use children as a manipulation tool or engage in economic or emotional abuse. They may blame their partner and minimize or deny their concerns.
