Domestic Violence is any assaultive behavior committed against one person by another when both currently or formerly have lived together, are currently or have been in a dating relationship or had a child in common. The abuse can be physical or mental and is usually both. Attacks often begin as verbal abuse or threats and turn into battery, sexual violence, and even murder. Domestic violence occurs on all socioeconomic, cultural and educational levels.
Sexual violence includes sexual actions and words that coerce, manipulate, or are forced upon someone with the intent to intimidate, humiliate, or control.
While legal definitions of stalking vary from one jurisdiction to another, a good working definition of stalking is a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to feel fear.
