“Domestic violence, or intimate partner violence occurs when one person causes physical or psychological harm to a current or former intimate partner,” as defined by the Illinois Department of Public Health. It is a pattern of behavior in which the abuser exerts power and control over the partner. Domestic violence (DV) is the leading cause of injury to women and children. It is a matter of concern to health care systems, to the legal community, to educational institutions, and to agencies that address issues of poverty and homelessness.
