What is domestic violence or abuse?

Domestic violence, also called domestic abuse, can happen to anyone, regardless of gender or sexuality.

It can include emotional, psychological, physical, financial and sexual abuse in couple relationships (current or previous) or between family members.

It can be an individual incident, or a pattern of incidents, but always involves one person having control and power over another.
