Because this was posted as 1 Credit Value, I will keep my answer contained. However, be aware of what your instructor may have been looking for based on class context. If there are specific issues discussed in a textbook, article, or lecture that you should be focused on, that should be given preference over the information I am providing you.

I am limited in the amount of information I am allowed to send in attachment form, and that link has a breadth of knowledge. Please note two things about statistics and documentation ...
Intimate partner violence is pervasive throughout American households and has a profound impact on all parties involved.
