DIFFERENT TYPES OF VIOLENCE

Have you or anyone you have known experienced...

 

Physical Violence:

Including beating, pushing, hair pulling, slapping, biting, or any other acts of physical mistreatment?

 

Emotional Violence:

Including name-calling, verbal threats, attempts at control, neglect or any other acts that make you feel devalued or worthless?

 

Sexual Violence:

Involving any unwanted sexual contact, sexual pressuring, sexual threats or force sexual relations?

 

Economic Abuse:

Controlling access to finances, legal documents or other important papers, interfering with work performance through harassing activities; frequent phone calls, refusing to allow the victim to go to school or to work?

 

Psychological Abuse:

Including brainwashing their partner or trying to make them confused about reality, secretly monitoring their partner through technology or other means so that the abuser seems to have omnipresence and know everything about their partner, switching from violent behavior to kind behavior in order to regain trust of their partner (and ultimately power and control over their partner)?
