What is Domestic Violence?
-Domestic Violence is when one person in a relationship uses violence or abuse to control or dominate the other person, causing them to live in fear.
There are several different forms of abuse:
Psychological Abuse: Abuse which deliberately destroys your self-confidence, it makes you feel you are useless, stupid or going crazy. It can be described as a type of brainwashing where you believe that everything that goes wrong is your fault.
Verbal Abuse: Constantly putting you down, calling you names, making you feel worthless, or making comments about your competence. Humiliating you or insulting you in public. Can also include threats of physical abuse.
Financial Abuse: When you are not allowed to have a say in how the money is spent, or being refused money for family needs, being made to get into debt for the other person.
Sexual Abuse: Being forced to have unwanted sexual contact or drugging you to have unwanted sexual contact.
Physical Abuse: Physical assault can take many forms from pushing, poking, biting, burning, slapping, hair pulling, strangulation, using a weapon, smashing things or hurting children or pets.
