Domestic violence is the act of physically, emotionally, mentally and/or verbally abusing another person within the same home or intimate relationship. There is a focused element of power struggle where one person has a dominant position over the other within the relationship. This disturbing behavior can be between spousal partners, parent and child, or even child and child. Seeking professional help for yourself or someone you may know who is struggling in a domestic abusive relationship is paramount to stopping the abuse, getting help for everyone involved, and overall healing.
