What is domestic violence?
Domestic violence is a pattern of coercive behavior used by one person in order to maintain power and control in a relationship. Batterers repeatedly subject their victims to physical, sexual, verbal, emotional, and/or financial tactics of control in order to force them to do something the batterer wants them to do without regard to the victims’ rights or well being.
Are you a victim?
Does your partner...
- Embarrass you with bad manners and put-downs?
- Look at you or act in ways that scare you?
- Control what you do, who you see or talk to, or where you go?
- Stop you from seeing or talking to friends or family
- Take your money, make you ask for money, or refuse to give you money?
- Make all the decisions?
- Accuse you of being a bad parent or threaten to take away or
hurt your children?
- Act like the abuse is no big deal, it’s your fault, or even deny doing it?
- Destroy your property or threaten to kill your pets?
- Intimidate you with guns, knives or other weapons
- Shove you, slap you or hit you?
- Force you to drop charges?
- Threaten to kill you?
If you know someone who is being abused:
- Listen, and give emotional support and comfort.
- Let the person express how they feel, but do not pry for details.
- Don’t be judgmental or ask why they didn’t confide in you sooner.
- Reassure the person that whatever happened was not their fault.
- Let the victim make personal decisions about responding to the assault.
- Help the person secure a safe place to stay.
- Refer the person to community resources such as the YWCA Resolve Family Abuse. See Emergency Shelter & 24-hour Crisis Line to the left.
Leaving a violent relationship can be a dangerous time. If you’re thinking about leaving, call the YWCA Resolve Program for help with safety planning. An Advocate will assist you with a step-by-step process to help you make safe choices and minimize the risks of leaving for you and your children.
