Domestic violence, also called intimate partner violence, is an intentional pattern of emotional, physical, or sexual abuse designed to keep the recipient (or victim) isolated and controlled.
Students will understand the far reaching impact of domestic violence/intimate partner violence, how genders are impacted differently, and that this impacts both straight and gay relationships.
Students will understand the cycle of violence, first identified by Dr. Lenore Walker decades ago, and be better able to empathize with why a person might stay in an abusive relationship.
