What is Family Violence
Are you in an abusive relationship?
Many people associate abuse with physical violence only. Abuse does not have to be just physical in character. It can be verbal or emotional as well and can be just as devastating as a physical assault. Abuse, in any form, is an action of control.
Physical abuse: use of strength to inflict pain or control.
Verbal abuse: words used to hurt or control.
Emotional abuse: actions to intimidate and control.
