Domestic Violence is any situation where an abuser will use many different methods to keep power and control over his or her partner. Ask yourself the following questions:
- Physical Violence
Have I ever been hit, slapped, punched, kicked, pushed, etc.?
- Emotional/Verbal Abuse
Have I experienced public humiliation, name calling or mind games?
Have I been made to feel like I can’t survive without the abuser?
Have I been kept from seeing my friends, family or from going to my job?
Do I have to account for every place I go and keep track of how long I am gone?
Do I get accused of cheating?
Am I threatened with violence, having my children taken away, hurting my loved ones or my pets?
Do I feel guilty or trapped when the abuser threatens suicide?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be a victim of domestic violence. DOVE can help you break the cycle of violence.
