Violence includes those acts that result from a power relationship, including threats and intimidation, neglect or acts of omission.
Such non-physical violence has a broad range of outcomes – including psychological harm, deprivation and maldevelopment.
These consequences can be immediate, as well as latent, and can last for years after the initial abuse.
Self-abuse, in contrast, includes acts such as self-mutilation.However, in both research and practice, the dividing lines between the different types of violence are not always so clear..State violence also involves upholding, forms of violence of a structural nature, such as poverty, through dismantling welfare, creating strict policies such as 'welfare to work', in order to cause further stimulation and disadvantage Poverty as a form of violence may involve oppressive policies that specifically target minority or low socio-economic groups.Economic violence includes attacks by larger groups motivated by economic gain – such as attacks carried out with the purpose of disrupting economic activity, denying access to essential services, or creating economic division and fragmentation.Clearly, acts committed by larger groups can have multiple motives.
