DOMESTIC VIOLENCE & RELATIONSHIPS

The National Domestic Violence Hotline defines domestic violence (also referred to as intimate partner violence (IPV), dating abuse, or relationship abuse) as: “a pattern of behaviors used by one partner to maintain power and control over another partner in an intimate relationship.

Domestic violence doesn’t discriminate. People of any race, age, gender, sexuality, religion, education level, or economic status can be a victim — or perpetrator — of domestic violence. That includes behaviors that physically harm, intimidate, manipulate, or control a partner or otherwise force them to behave in ways they don’t want to. This can happen through physical violence, threats, emotional abuse, or financial control.”

Stalking

The Stalking Prevention Awareness and Resource Center defines stalking as "a pattern of behavior directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to fear for their safety or the safety of others, or suffer substantial emotional distress." This may include following a person; driving by a victim's place of employment or school; sending unwanted gifts, cards, or e-mails; persistently calling or text messaging; tracking a victim's whereabouts using technology such as cameras or global positioning systems (GPSs); vandalizing property; and threatening to hurt the victim, his or her family, another person, or pets.
