What is Domestic Violence?
All acts of violence--physical or emotional--by a family member, partner, girlfriend, boyfriend, or children. It includes:
  • Using physical force such as kicking, hitting, punching, biting, slapping, and hitting with objects
  • Bullying
  • Threats and insults
  • Being controlled
  • Being deprived of financial support

What is Sexual Abuse?
Sexual abuse is any sexual act that occurs against someone’s will. It involves victims who do not agree to the sexual act (consent) or those who are unable to consent or refuse. Someone can be unable to consent because of:

  • Fear
  • Age
  • Illness
  • Physical or mental disability
  • Being under the influence of alcohol or drugs
