  • The physical abuse is just a part of the indescribable pain and suffering one endures. There is also the emotional abuse and the after effects of living in a situation of terror for years. Many victims of domestic violence develop PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and don't even realize it.

    Symptoms of Abuse - Misuse of Power And Control

    Abuse in a relationship is any act used to gain power and control over another person. Women who are abused physically are often isolated. Their partners tend to control their lives to a great extent as well as verbally degrade them.

    Listed below are some of the warning signs of domestic abuse. Look to see if there are multiple warning signs that are occurring in your life.

  • What is Domestic Violence?
    Domestic Violence is a violent confrontation between family or household members involving physical harm, sexual assault, or fear of physical harm. Family or household members include spouses / former spouses, those in (or formerly in) a dating relationship, adults related by blood or marriage, and those who have a biological or legal parent-child relationship.

    The batterer uses acts of violence and a series of behaviors, including intimidation, threats, psychological abuse, and isolation to coerce and to control the other person.

  • The violence may not happen often, but may remain a hidden and constant terrorizing factor. Domestic violence is not only physical and sexual violence but also psychological. Psychological violence means intense and repetitive degradation, creating isolation, and controlling the actions or behaviors of the spouse through intimidation or manipulation to the detriment of the individual.
    Domestic violence destroys the home. No one deserves to be abused. The responsibility for the violence belongs to the abuser. It is not the victim's fault!
