In combination with your reading this week, research different types of domestic violence. In your initial post, discuss your findings and address the following questions:

  • Did your research uncover any types of domestic violence that surprised you or were new to you?
  • In researching the types of domestic violence, did you find mentions of different types experienced by different groups?
  • Why do you feel different groups may experience different types of abuse?

In responding to your peers, discuss the following:

  • What differences were there between the type of violence you discussed and the type of violence your peer discussed?
  • Discuss the differences and explain your reasoning.
  • What factors lead to the differences, and are these factors important for a person in the field to recognize?
