#psychlopedia – Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is defined as violence or aggression within the home. This can have a great affect on the people directly involved, as well as the other household members who witness or hear about the violence or aggression.

If you believe you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, it is very important to seek help. If it is an emergency always call 9-1-1. For a 24/7, free domestic abuse hotline, call 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). For further support a psychologist or counselor may be able to help.
