Noticing the signs of domestic abuse

Domestic abuse comes from the abusers desire for power and control over the victim.  It can happen to anyone, yet is often overlooked, excused or denied.  Abusers use intimidation, shame, fear, guilt and threats to wear you down and keep you ‘under the thumb’.  Noticing and acknowledging the signs of abuse is the first step towards ending it.


Domestic abuse often escalates from verbal abuse and threats to physical violence or even murder.  While physical injury is an obvious danger, the emotional and psychological consequences can also be extremely severe.
