To understand the nature of domestic violence, one must first understand the concept of violence and where it comes from. Domestic violence occurs across all ethnic and racial groups, profoundly affecting women who are most frequently the victims.

From the beginning of time, as children, we learn by example. Every child adopts habits, traits and behaviors from our parents and parental modeling is one of the most potent examples for training behaviors, good or bad. Research shows that behaviors, such as abuse is a "learned behavior", brought on by neglect, abuse and maltreatment and nurtured by two things, (1) a generational concept of power and control and (2) the lack of equality between men and women.

When violence is instilled in a child at a young age, the behavior effects every facet of their lives and then it is often encouraged by television, the media, and publications and the most dangerous aspect for learned behavior as a child, is that children aren't mature enough to understand the ramifications of their actions, so in essence, anger, rage and violence becomes a way of life and handed down from generation to generation.

Abuse of any type is not limited to just one sex, male or female. Virtually all sociological data shows women initiate domestic violence as often as men, and that women use weapons more often than men, and that 38% of injured victims are men. The overall violence ratio for men was 10% while the overall violence ratio for women was 13%.

The US Surgeon General has officially proclaimed violence as a "Public Health Epidemic" and states that violence is among the biggest health threats in the United States. Interpersonal violence has invaded homes, schools, and streets everywhere, reaching what public health experts now conclude are epidemic proportions. Everyone is affected, but the group most affected is youth.

Domestic abuse means any act or threatened act of violence that is committed by any person against another person to whom the actor is currently or was formerly related, or when whom the actor is living or has lived in the same domicile, or with whom the actor is involved or has been involved in an intimate relationship.

Family or household member means a spouse, family member, former spouse, parent, child, persons related by blood or marriage, persons who are in a dating relationship, persons who are presently residing together or who have resided together in the past, person who have had a child in common regardless if they are or have been married or have lived others at any time, and, for the purpose of the issuance of a domestic violence protection order, any other person with a sufficient relationship to the abusing person as determined by the court.
