Domestic Abuse: The Facts About Emotional Abuse & Domestic Violence by Dr. Christina Hibbert
One in every four women is, or will be, a victim of domestic violence. This includes:
- physical abuse
- sexual abuse
- emotional abuse
Not sure what constitutes abuse? It could include, but is not limited to:
- name calling
- trying to control your every move or isolate you from family or friends
- using the kids or money to control or coerce you
- minimizing, denying or blaming things on you or someone else
These are all part of the emotional abuse of domestic violence. If you recognize yourself or someone you care about in these words, please call the National Domestic Violence Hotline today at 1-800-799-SAFE (TheHotline.org).
