Domestic violence is still a sad reality in Canada and around the world with the majority of victims being women and children. In order to help stop domestic abuse it is important to recognize the patterns of behaviour of the abuser. Barbara, Director at Osborne House in Winnipeg discusses the cycle of domestic violence and how we can help stop it. 

Six percent of Canadians with a current or former spouse reported being physically or sexually victimized by their spouse. In 2009, victims of spousal violence were less likely to report the incident to police than in 2004. Just under one-quarter (22%) of spousal violence victims stated that the incident came to the attention of the police, down slightly from 2004 (28%) [Statistics Canada: Family Violence in Canada, A Statistical Profile].
