|What is Family Violence?
"Various individuals and groups have defined domestic violence to include everything from saying unkind or demeaning words, to grabbing a person's arm, to hitting, kicking, choking, or even murdering.
Domestic violence most often refers to violence between married or cohabiting couples, although it sometimes refers to violence against other members of a household, such as children or elderly relatives.
It occurs in every racial, socioeconomic, ethic group; mental illness increases its likelihood."
