Myths & Truths
  • Domestic violence does not affect many people. False: It affects approximately one million people in the U.S. every year and 85% of victims are women.
  • Domestic violence is just a momentary loss of temper. False: The abuser makes a conscious decision to abuse. Loss of temper is a tool to enforce control through fear, and its part of a pattern of abuse.
