    Resources for Domestic Violence Victims
    How to Recognize Domestic Violence
    Healthy relationships should be characterized by freedom, safety and equality. Domestic violence can occur in intimate relationships from all walks of life. The most common victims of domestic violence are women and their children.
    Many times it is difficult to tell if your relationship is abusive. Domestic violence results from an abuse of power.
    As defined by the Oregon Governor’s Council on Domestic Violence, it is “a pattern of coercive behavior used by one person to control and subordinate another in an intimate relationship. These behaviors include physical, sexual, psychological, and economic abuse."
    When the abuser learns that violence is an effective way of gaining control, his/her actions may intensify. Domestic abuse may begin with domination and control, but can escalate to assault, rape and even murder.
