What are the predisposing factors that lead to domestic abuse? What is the role of the public health nurse to prevent domestic abuse? Domestic violence is among the most underreported crimes worldwide for both men and women, and due to social stigmas regarding male victimization, m en face an increased likelihood of being overlooked by health care providers ( ). When people think of domestic abuse, they often focus on domestic violence. Nevertheless domestic abuse includes any attempt by one person in an intimate relationship or marriage to dominate and control the other (Smith, 2019). Domestic violence and abuse are used for one purpose and one purpose only: to gain and maintain total control over you . Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anybody; it does not differentiate. Abuse transpires within heterosexual relationships and in same- sex partnerships ( ). It happens within all age ranges, ethnic backgrounds, and economic levels. Although women are more often victimized, men also experience abuse —especially verbal and emotional. The bottom line is that abusive behavior is never acceptable , whether from a man, woman, teenager, or an older adult (Smith, 2019).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
