Understanding Abuse

Recognizing Abuse Is The First Step In Stopping It

What Is & Is Not Abuse?

Abuse is one person using power and control OVER another. Both partners cannot have that kind of control. The abused partner may fight back, but there is a difference between abuse and self-defense.

Abuse is not about both partners just "fighting it out" all the time. Abuse can happen regardless of the length of relationship or living situation.
