Passive aggressiveness itself is not an action, so it cannot be a form of violence on it's own. That being said, a person who is being passive aggressive or whom has a passive aggressive personality, usually is not directly violent. That's why it's called PASSIVE-Aggressive. The passive parts breaks away from it simply being an aggression problem.
Now, that doesn't mean that the passive aggressive person wouldn't do anything aggressive enough to be considered violent. It has happened before, though I think at that point it moves away from the description of being passive-aggressive.
Violence doesn't have to be a direct action of aggression. Passive aggressive people will withold love, sex, communication in order to hurt the other person's feelings. emotional abuse is just as - if not more powerful than physical abuse. The broken arm will heal but some emotional hurt last forever.
See any abused pet at the shelter as proof.

How would I go about helping his behavior without spending lots of money. I'm terrified for him to go near my baby but my husband loves this dog. I don't want to give up on him but my husband isn't trying to teach him or fix his behavior and I'm getting to the point to where I want to get rid of...

My dog bit me and drew blood - should I put it down?Today, the dog bit me. Hard. On the thumb, deep puncture wound and black and blue mark on the nail. I thoughtlessly took a big bone away from her without testing first how Jackie would react. Because it wasn't dog food that she gulped down in 3...
