KNOW THE FACTS
WHAT IS DOMESTIC VIOLENCE?
Domestic Violence is a pattern of behavior used to establish power and control over another person through fear and intimidation, often including the threat or use of violence. Some signs of an abusive relationship include:
Exerting strict control (financial, social and/or appearance).
Needing constant contact including excessive texts and calls.
Insulting a partner in front of other people.
Showing fear around a partner.
Isolation from family and friends.
Frequent canceling of plans at the last-minute.
Unexplained injuries or explanations that don’t quite add up.
