Do they tell you that you’re useless and
couldn’t cope without them?
Have they threatened to hurt you or people
close to you if you leave?
Abusers use fear, guilt, shame, and intimidation
to wear you down.
Are they jealous and possessive…
do they stop you going out alone?
Do they control who you can see
and what you can wear?
Abusers don’t ‘play fair’
You are not alone
Domestic abuse can affect everyone
Abusers use fear, threats, force and violence
to wear you down and keep you
under their control.
If they force you to have sex…
that is abuse
It doesn’t matter what type of
relationship you are in
No means No
Does your partner control the finances?
Do you need permission to buy something?
Are you prevented from earning
your own money?
Abusers use fear, guilt, shame,
and intimidation to wear you down.
Do they humiliate or insult you in front of others?
Do they constantly criticise you?
Does your relationship make you feel worthless?
Verbal abuse hurts. The scars last
