Domestic violence can take a number of forms, including physical, verbal, emotional, economic, religious, and sexual abuse, which can range from subtle, coercive forms to marital rape and to violent physical abuse such as female genital mutilation and acid throwing that results in disfigurement or death.Domestic murders include stoning, bride burning, honor killings, and dowry deaths.More than half of victims reported a history of some form of child abuse, with 40 percent of victims physically abused by a caregiver, and nearly 70 percent having witnessed violence in their families.ASSESSING THE EFFECTS OF FAMILIES FOR SAFE DATES, A FAMILY-BASED TEEN DATING ABUSE PREVENTION PROGRAM, Vangie A.
