What is Domestic Violence?
Domestic Violence is an abuse of power in a relationship where one person uses a range of behaviours to intimidate, dominate and control the other person through fear.
These behaviours include:
- Emotional abuse (put downs)
- Social abuse (isolation)
- Sexual abuse (unwanted sexual contact)
- Economic abuse (controlling what you spend)
- Physical abuse (hitting, spitting, punching, kicking)
- Verbal abuse (name calling)
Everyone deserves to live a life free from fear and abuse!
Signs of Abuse may assist you recognise if you, or someone you know, are in an abusive relationship. Most women in abusive relationships will experience a range of these behaviours from the abuser. Experiencing any one of the signs is very serious and you do not need to experience several, or all of them, for your relationship to be abusive.
Women often ask us what to look for or how they can predict if a man they are interested in is likely to be abusing or controlling. Signs to Look for in an Abusive Personality provides a guide to inappropriate behaviours to be aware of.
When should you seek refuge?
- When you or your children are suffering from the effects of domestic violence
- When you fear for the safety of yourself and your children from a violent partner
- When you need support, understanding and assistance to leave an abusive home
If you are in an abusive relationship, having a Safety Plan worked out in advance can help you get out of the home safely and quickly if necessary. It is helpful to work through the steps, even if things are going smoothly. Bring your Safety Plan with you if you need to leave in a hurry.
Live life free from violence!
