The psychological consequences of domestic violence

Saumya Chaudhary

Domestic violence, also referred to as domestic abuse, encompasses a range of behaviors employed in relationships to establish and maintain power and control over an intimate partner. These abusive behaviors can be physical, sexual, emotional, or psychological, causing fear, intimidation, manipulation, pain, degradation, and blame. Domestic violence affects individuals irrespective of their gender, age, sexual orientation, or race, occurring in various relationship scenarios, including marriage, cohabitation, and dating. Its impact extends across different socioeconomic backgrounds and educational levels.

Domestic violence has significant adverse effects on individuals' overall health and well-being, leading to physical harm, anxiety, sadness, and diminished social skills. Moreover, it increases the risk of engaging in self-destructive behaviors like substance abuse and self-harm. Anyone, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or socioeconomic class, can become a victim of domestic violence. Additionally, other household members, including children and family members, can also fall victim to domestic violence. It commonly manifests as a pattern of abusive behavior by an intimate partner in a romantic or familial relationship, with the abuser exerting control and authority over the victim.
