Domestic violence often escalates from threats and verbal abuse to violence. While physical injuries may be the most obvious danger the emotional and social consequences of domestic abuse are also severe.
The definition of domestic violence and abuse is
"any incident of controlling coercive threatening behaviour violence or abuse of those aged 16 or over who are or have been intimate partners or family members including mother father, son, daughter, brother, sister and grandparents".
And this is regardless of gender or sexuality. The abuse may encompass but is not limited to psychological abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse, financial abuse and, emotional abuse. Controlling behaviour is a range of acts designed to make a person dependent by isolating them from a sources of support. Coercive behaviour is an act or pattern of acts of assault, threats, humiliation and intimidation to harm, punish or frighten their victims.
