Are You in an Abusive Relationship?

You, or someone you care about, may be in an abusive relationship if you experience, or observe, the following...

Does your partner frighten you with threats of violence or throw things at you when angry? Hit, shoved, grabbed, slapped, pushed, or kicked you? Say it's your fault you were hit? Is your partner very jealous, make unwanted phone calls, univited visits, calls you names, or yells at you?Promise it won't happen again, and then it does? Does your partner try to control the way you dress or who you see? Maybe your partner accuses you of imagined encounters with others or has threatened to commit suicide if you leave. 

Domestic violence often begins with verbal abuse.

Domestic violence is a process of psychological intimidation. Even strong, competent peple can be controlled by a domestic partner. Domestic violence often begins with verbal abuse and emotional abuse, and can escalate to physical abuse. The threats and humiliation can be more significant and longer lasting than bruises and broken bones. 

It is often difficult for people to understand why a person would stay in a battering relationship.

The five most common reasons are:


1. PERPETRATOR'S BEHAVIOR

Escalting violence, stalking, hostage taking, harassment, threats against children, promises of change.


2. LACK OF SAFE OPTIONS

 Housing, jobs, healthcare, schooling, information, etc.


3.  LACK OF COMMUNITY SUPPORT

Pressures to stay in relationship, religious or culutural values, family or children, "victim blaming" attitudes of the community.


4. VICTIM OVERWHELMED BY THE IMMEDIATE PHYSICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICIAL TRAUMA.


5. HOPE Victim's continual hope and belief in the perpetrator's promises to change and stop being violent.
