Domestic violence can be described as a pattern of intentional behaviors that includes a variety of tactics, such as physical and sexual violence, stalking, threats/intimidation, isolation, psychological attacks, and spiritual and economic abuse. Domestic violence can happen to anyone. It does not discriminate on the basis of economic status, culture, ethnicity, education, family structure, religion, sexual orientation, or age. It occurs in relationships where the current or former partners are or have been dating, cohabitating, or married. In this article, the authors explain the causes of domestic violence and its effects on children. They also suggest several steps that early childhood providers can do to support adults and children impacted by a batterer's use of violence. (Contains 5 resources.)
