What is Domestic Violence and Abuse?

Examples can be: Psychological (playing with your mind), physical (hurting you) sexual (making you do things and have sex when you don’t want to), financial (keeping your money and or not letting you have any money) or emotional (hurting your feelings by always putting you down). Domestic Violence and Abuse is about someone you know, a past or current partner, or a member of your family trying to have power and control over you.
