ABUSE


Abuse is a pattern of coercive control that one person exercises over another. Battering is a behavior that physically harms, arouses fear, prevents a partner from doing what they wish or forces them to behave in ways they do not want.

    This survival kit tells you what you can do if you are threatened or hit by your spouse or partner. It is a self help guide that explains your legal rights and how to get help from the legal system.

    This guide also contains ideas to help you put together a safety plan and provides telephone numbers to call if you need shelter, advocacy services, counseling, a support group or if you just need someone to talk to.
