Domestic violence, domestic abuse, spousal abuse, battering, family violence or intimate partner violence (IPV). Domestic violence has many names but is always about a pattern of abusive behaviors by one partner against another in an intimate relationship.
Domestic violence does not always involve male violence against a female. Every year approximately 7.000 men are exposed to domestic violence. Most of the violent partners of these men however, are also male.
"Violence is any act aimed at another person, designed to damage, hurt or scare this person into doing something against their will or refrain from doing something they want to."
Per Isdal, ATV Norway
The violence which women are subjected to cannot be reduced to physical violence alone. Violence constitutes a conscious act which is aimed at gaining or maintaining power and control. Violence is used to get others to do what one wishes them to do. Violence is therefore not a random act caused by a loss of temper or control by the perpetrator. Violence requires a certain degree of assessment and consideration- there is a desired goal and a choice of means of achieving this goal.
A violent relationship typically evolves over time and the violence increases in roughness and frequency. A violent relationship can last a long time, oftentimes many years, while the violence slowly increases and becomes worse.
