Understanding the Impact of Domestic Violence

This blogpost presents a broad set of information on what domestic violence is, how to recognize the warning signs of abuse, how to seek help for oneself or a loved one, and ways we can all work towards preventing intimate partner violence. There is also discussion on the short- and long-term impacts of domestic violence on physical health and the effect on a survivor’s mental health, screening tools, and ways to assess risk for further abuse. Special attention is paid toward understanding the impact of domestic violence on minority populations, LBGTQ+ people, and immigrants.
