Domestic Violence, sometimes referred to as Intimate violence, is defined as physically or emotionally harmful acts between spouses, or other individuals in personal relationships. Non-Intimate violence is a category that is used for any other family members.
In addition to actual physical harm domestic violence can include emotional or verbal mistreatment, denial of financial access, restraint, sexual coercion, threats or intimidation.
The majority of victims of domestic violence are women, however statics prove that in many circumstances men may also be victims.
It is difficult to measure the actual extent of the problem as many cases of abuse are not officially reported and documented! Never-the-less personal surveys indicate a much greater prevalence of cases than reports indicate. And, as a general rule, it is possible to attribute domestic violence to specific social and cultural conditions: between the age of 18 and 30; unemployment, low income or low job satisfaction; violent family history; sexual problems; and alcohol or substance abuse.
