Domestic violence is “a pattern of coercive, controlling behavior that can include physical abuse, emotional or psychological abuse, sexual abuse or financial abuse. It is a pervasive, life-threatening crime that affects thousands of individuals in Connecticut regardless of age, economic status, race, religion, sexual orientation or education,” according to the Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CCADV). For fiscal year 2011-2012 (the most recent year for which statistics are available), CCADV provided services to 57,785 Connecticut victims of domestic violence. That staggering number represents only those who sought help, not the total number who suffered at the hands of their abusers.
