Gaining control: Domestic violence is a bigger problem than some believe, and I hear all the time about how this is such a small problem.
Victims are female and male -- but females are more commonly abused. However, the level of violence inflicted on a male victim is likely to be much more severe and more often fatal when they come from females perpetrators, according to Caryn Burton, training director for the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
She mentions in the video that due to women having less physical strength if they are going to attack they are going to use weopons. They need the woepons as a tool to overcome the fact that men are stronger.
This video she speaks about men being victims as well, and then goes on to speak about the dynamics of these relationships.
Here is a link that speak about her presentation on domestic abuse.
It's also a crime that is commonly repeated over and over again without intervention.
"Domestic violence is about gaining and maintaining power and control. You'll hear people say he was angry. He was drunk. He was high. He was having an affair. No, domestic violence is about gaining the power in a relationship and maintaining control over that partner so what happens, what's said, what's done, what is expected, all of that comes back to that power partner and that is the person who is in control. It is a crime of power and control and nothing else."

The second video speaks about the most common profession group among domestic violence perpetrators are member of clergy.
The most common profession group among domestic violence perpetrators are members of the religious clergy, according to Burton.
"Clergy, faith leaders, lay ministers, ministers, who has more authority than God? There are all sorts of passages in the Bible and in scripture, Koran or whatever your holy book may be is that fully support domestic violence.
Burton in her job as a domestic violence counselor said numerous times she's been told by victims that they had talked with their pastors and was encouraged to be a better wife, and endure and this (abuse) would stop. They were told to pray harder.
Second most common career group abusers are members of law enforcement.
She said YES domestic violence is a bigger program that some believe!
