    The prevalent lack of understanding about what domestic violence is.
    That most domestic violence is not physical or criminal.
    Many abusers that have never been identified as criminals, may not see themselves as abusers and then the victim often doesn't either.
    Common characteristics of abusers.
    Common characteristics of survivors.
    The role media is having and how believable each party is and their likeable.

    Julie Owens is a survivor of domestic violence who has worked in the field of violence
    against women and women's empowerment since 1989. She has founded a hospital Domestic Violence crisis response team, a transitional shelter, advocacy groups and training programs.
