If you or someone you know has harmed someone with intimate partner/domestic or sexual violence there is help and support to end the violent or abusive behavior. Intimate partner, domestic violence and abuse is not the result of anger, mental illness, or the influence of drugs or alcohol. Rather, it is a learned behavior that is often motivated by the unconscious or conscious desire of the abusive person to control their partner. Anyone can use abusive behaviors. While men are disproportionately the perpetrators of domestic violence, women can also be abusive to their partners and need support. See resources below for those who have harmed.
