Domestic Violence

Domestic violence occurs more often than we know.

One in three women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime and more than one in four men in the United States have experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime.

Domestic violence comes in many difference forms.  While most consider domestic violence to be physical violence, below is a list of common behaviors that are also acts of domestic violence:

  • Making you feel afraid by slamming doors, punching walls, locking you inside a home or car, or driving in an aggressive way
  • Putting you down or making you feel as though you are worth nothing 
  • Isolating you from friends and family
  • Constantly checking on your location or monitoring your cell phone and e-mail,
  • Making you feel afraid to disagree with them
  • Reminding you that you can’t survive without their financial support
  • Financially controlling you, telling you how money should be spent, putting you on a strict allowance
  • Isolating you from family and friends
  • Requiring or guilting you to participate in sexual acts that you do not want to do or find demeaning
  • Threatening to hurt you, or to kill themselves if you say you want to end the relationship
