DON'T TELL ANYONE ABOUT IT
HAVEN'T REPORTED TO THE POLICE
ARE VICTIMS DOMESTIC ABUSE
Intimate partner violence (IPV) occurs between two people in a close relationship. The term “intimate partner” includes current and former spouses and dating partners. IPV exists along a continuum from a single episode of violence to ongoing battering. IPV includes four types of behavior:
Physical violence is when a person hurts or tries to hurt a partner by hitting, kicking, or other type of physical force.
Sexual violence is forcing a partner to take part in a sex act when the partner does not consent.
Threats of physical or sexual violence include the use of words, gestures, weapons, or other means to communicate the intent to cause harm.
Emotional abuse is threatening a partner or his or her possessions or loved ones, or harming a partner’s sense of self-worth.
Examples are stalking, namecalling, intimidation, or not letting a partner see friends and family. Often, IPV starts with emotional abuse. This behavior can progress to physical or sexual assault. Several types of IPV may occur together.
