How do I know if I am a victim of domestic violence?
It is important to remember abuse can occur to both men and women. Thousands of men and women and their children live in constant fear and pain as a result of family violence. For example, the abuse can be physical, ranging from shoving, slapping, punching and stabbing. However, abuse can also be psychological, including threats or other verbal abuse.
Remember, you do not have to be physically battered to be considered a victim of abuse. Abuse is any behavior that is used to intimidate or control another person. For further information on abusive behavior, please visit: www.helpguide.org and click on the topic of abuse. Also, please visit: www.vsdvalliance.org
