Domestic/Dating Violence Awareness Month Events
Domestic/Dating Violence Awareness Month connects advocates across the nation who work to end interpersonal violence. Dating or domestic violence, also known as intimate partner violence, is a pattern of ongoing power and control by one dating partner over another. Examples of dating or domestic violence include threatening a partner or their family, coercing them into doing something they don’t want to do, constantly belittling them, controlling what they can and cannot do, deciding who they can go out with and when, isolating them from friends and family, controlling their finances and access to resources, or physically hitting, kicking, punching, slapping, or scratching. Dating and domestic violence can also include sexual violence or stalking.
UHS Violence Prevention & Survivor Services is dedicated to preventing violence before it happens and helping address the needs of victims of sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking after it happens.

Domestic violence is a pattern of behavior used to establish power and control over another person through fear and intimidation, often including the threat or use of violence. Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, income, or other factors. It includes cycles of physical, emotional, and psychological abuse.
