There is no typical profile of domestic violence victims other than that they are usually female. Young, old, black, white, single, married, professional, unemployed, rich, poor...all may be potential victims of domestic violence. Children are also victims-even if they are not physically abused themselves. When children witness violence between their parents, they may learn violence as a way of life and later become involved in abusive relationships. In addition, violence in the home causes emotional suffering and many, many corresponding problems.
