Domestic Violence

From sexual or spousal abuse to child abuse and neglect, domestic violence entails any abusive behavior by one person to maintain power over another in a close relationship. The scope of RAND's research on domestic violence includes its effects on families and children, the link between substance use and domestic violence, domestic violence by or against military service members, and how clinical depression and post-traumatic stress disorder may be contributing factors.
