Domestic violence is a pattern of behavior used to exert power over a partner to control behaviors and actions. This violence can happen in any relationship, race, gender, age, sexual, or religion. Domestic abuse is punishable by law.
I have lived through every abuse possible, from my mother to my second husband. I did not have a choice as where to go because forty years ago there was nothing available, for abus ed women. I want every woman/ man to know that today (2017) there is help, and no excuse not to get it. Therefore, I am very passionate about domestic violence and all abuses, to my heart and soul.
Theoretical Data is hypothetical, explain specific phenomenon in humanities. A set of statements or princ i pl es devised to explore a group of facts or ph enomenon, especially one that has been repeatedly tested or is widely accepted and can be used to make predictions about natural phenomenon. Theories are fictions predicting facts,
Empirical Data is open-ended interviews or questionnaires, specific concrete examples/observations to create a model/subsequently a theory. Research is inductive gaining knowledge by means of direct and indirect observation or experience.
Empirical data is used to refine and validate a theoretical model, refers to outcomes of observations to observed objects, states or events of the world.
Psychological trauma is the unique experience of an event or enduring conditions, in which: *The individual's ability to integrate his/her emotional experience is overwhelmed, or
*The individual's experience (subjectively) a threat to life, bodily integrity, or sanity (Pearlman & Saakvitine, 1995. P. 60 .
Varieties of Man-Made Violence- war/political violence, human rights abuses, criminal violence, rape, domestic violence, child abuse, and sexual abuse.
Domestic violence-recent studies show that between 21% and 34% of women will be assaulted by an intimate male partner. Deborah Rose's study found that 20-30% of adults in the US, approved of hitting a spouse.
Theoretical approaches from disciplines for causes of IPV and its risk factors, Spans of psychological are; frustration-aggression theory, s ocia l learning theory, cognitive behavioral theory ,Bio be havioral is neurochemical mechanisms, crimin olo gical, economic, and sociological explanations (Heise2012; Mitchell and Vanya 2009), Relevant sociological theories explain IPV; feminist theory, family conflict theory, resource theory, offshoots of relative resource theory and gendered resource theory, and dependency theory. These theories share importance of structure (patriarchal or otherwise), socioeconomic resources, and status. IVP cuts all social divisions and is a societal problem of gender oppression, not an ethnic problem (Meier 1997). Again, violence covers all levels of society. " Force and its threat can be used when other resources are unavailable or have proved ineffective" (Goode 1971, p. 628. IPV is an intricate phenomenon that requires a multifaceted approach (Rodriguiz-Menes and Safranoff 2012) occurring an interaction of factors at the individual, household, communi ty, and societal levels (Heise 1998)
Empirical evidence -health outcomes related to IPV; acute, intermediate, and long-term consequences with IPV including; physical, (psycho-)somatic, reproductive, and psychological impairments. In the US IPV is very common cause of injury for women seeking care in hospital emergency rooms (Rand 1997), Common injuries are; bruises, scratches, burns, broken bones, head injuries, lacerations, miscarriages, and knife and gunsh ot wounds (Dutton et al. 2006 Tj aden and Thoennes 2000) .
Empirical evidence suggests social position and IPV have a role in women's health, even greater vulnerabilities to poor health.
Psychological profiles between subtypes of victims, commonalities and differences in demographic variables.
Rational/Deductive Studies , first dimension is the severity of marital violence; (i.e., Hershorn & Rosenbaum , 1991), severity and frequency considered together, there were "hitters" and "batterers", which batterers have severe violence and psychological abuse; Sweeney and Key (1982) there are "mixed" batterers, the "infrequent" and "frequent". The second dimension differentiates subtypes. Generally, the husband's violence: violent with wife and family. The batterers are in two groups-family only and generally violent from distinction. The generally violent are more sever violence. The third dimension-rational/deductive methods of batterers psychopathology or personality disorders, maybe both. Overcontrolled batterers do more sever marital violence; under
