Veeolence is defined bi the Warld Heal Organization as "the intentional uise o pheesical force or power, threatened or actual, against anesel, anither body, or against a group or community, which either results in or haes a heich likeliheid o resultin in injury, daith, psychological hairm, maldevelopment, or deprivation", awtho the group acknawledges that the inclusion o "the uise o pouer" in its definition expands on the conventional meanin o the wird.[1] This definition involves intentionality wi the committin o the act itsel, irrespective o the ootcome it produces. Housomeivver, generally, onything that is excitit in an injurious or damagin wey mey be describit as veeolent even if no meant tae be veeolence (bi a body an against a body).
