Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault

Victim Response / Feelings

Because domestic violence is a crime involving a partner, spouse, or significant other, a variety of feelings may be experienced, including:

  • Anger
  • Denial
  • Fear

  • Hurt

Many of these same feelings are experienced by a victim who has been raped or sexually abused.
