Understanding the Effects of Domestic Violence

https://psychcentral.com/lib/understanding-the-effects-of-domestic-violence/

Domestic violence physically, psychologically and socially affects women, men and their families.

Initially, the abuse usually is an attempt by one partner to exert control through intimidation, fear, verbal abuse or threats of violence. Victims of domestic violence may be isolated from friends, family and neighbors and lose their network of social support. With time, the abusive partner, or batterer, may use increasingly severe methods to maintain control. Eventually the violence may lead to serious injury and can result in hospitalization, or death.
