Domestic violence occurs when one individual overpowers, dominates, and/or causes violent behavior within a household. The exchange, whether it’s an acute incident or persistent problem, can involve those in a marriage, partnership, or children. There is no excuse for violent behavior. However, violent actions can be triggered by anger and/or substance abuse. Residual effects of domestic violence can include feelings of anxiety, depression, and fear, as well as the development of other mental health conditions such as eating disorders and addiction.
