Family violence can take many forms including physical, sexual, emotional (spiritual), and financial abuse or neglect that is carried out by any family member or an intimate partner. Familial relationships are considered violent if one, all, or any combination of these abuses are taking place. Family violence may be experienced by any individual in a familial or intimate relationship who is being controlled or harmed, regardless of age, sex, or gender. Specific crisis services are available for women, men, 2-Spirit, youth/teens, and seniors/elders who are experiencing family violence.
