Domestic Violence Information
Knowing domestic violence information, some important
and understanding the
domestic violence cycle
will give you a solid foundation for making future decisions.
Domestic violence is domestic abuse that includes physical violence. It is not limited to just one form of abuse. Domestic violence may also include sexual abuse, emotional abuse, psychological abuse, financial abuse, and stalking.
It is vital that you have as much information as possible and are aware of the seriousness of domestic violence.
Abusers are fully aware and in control of what they are saying and doing. When an abuser is in a rage and friends come by, suddenly everything is fine. Abusers don't beat on their best friend's girlfriend just because the abuser is drunk, tired, hungry, or stressed.
Why is your abuser beating on you? Abusers are abusive to gain and maintain total control over you and the situation.
Some of the abuse is spontaneous, and some of it is premeditated. Getting out alive will require some premeditated planning, but also spontaneous thinking and action on your part.
Abusers will tell you what their intentions are, in the form of a threat. It is your responsibility to believe your abuser. Your life and the lives of your children depend on it.
