DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Disagreements develop from time to time in relationships. Domestic violence is not a disagreement. It is a pattern of behavior used by one partner to establish and maintain power and control over the other. The behavior will often become more frequent and intense over time. The abusive person is responsible for these behaviors and is the only person who can change them. Don't wait until you get hurt; get help now.

DOES YOUR PARTNER:

  • Insult you in public and private?

  • Check on where you've been and whom you've talked to?

  • Put down your friends and family?

  • Tell you jealousy is a sign of love?

  • Blame you for the abuse?

  • Limit where you can go and what you can do?

  • Try to control your money?

  • Destroy your belongings?

  • Threaten to hurt you, your family members, or pets?

  • Make you have sex in ways that are uncomfortable for you?

  • Touch you in a way that hurts or frightens you?

DEVELOP A SAFETY PLAN:

  • Arrange to have a safe place to go.

  • Make copies of important papers and hide them.

  • Have important phone numbers available.

  • Pack and hide an overnight bag.

  • Put aside money and spare keys.

  • Avoid rooms with only one exit.

  • Avoid the kitchen, bathroom and garage.

  • Arrange to have someone stay with you.

  • Tell your family, friends or coworkers.
