The Cycle of Domestic Violence
Domestic violence may seem unpredictable, simply an outburst related just to the moment and to the circumstances in the lives of the people involved. Domestic violence follows a typical pattern no matter when it occurs or who is involved. The cycle, repeats; each time the level of his violence may increase. At every stage in the cycle, the abuser is in full control and is working to control and further isolate the victim.
