Myths Vs. Facts
Types of Abuse
Abuse happens when one person exerts power and control over another
Relationships can be healthy, unhealthy, abusive, or
anywhere in between
Emotional and Verbal
Non-physical behaviour such as threats, insults, isolation, intimidation
It is estimated that 3-5 children in every classroom have witnessed violence in their home (Jaffe et al., 1990)
Exposure to violence can negatively affect peer relationships and academic achievement
Close to 40% of women worldwide experience some form of sexual or physical violence (WHO, 2013)
80% of victims of criminal harassment are women while 90% of the accused are men (GSS, 1999)
Only 33% of teens who were in a violent relationship ever told anyone about the abuse
A teen's confusion about the law and their desire for confidentiality are two of the biggest barriers stopping them from seeking help
When a Relationship isn't healthy...
Remember, relationships that are UN-healthy are based on
Power & Control
Are you with someone who...
But why do people stay...
Nowhere to go
Believing that Abuse is Normal
Domestic Violence is not a problem where I live
Nicole & Jennifer
Adolescent and Children's Empowerment Counsellors (ACE)
Domestic violence and abuse is NOT the abuser's loss of control over their behaviour. Their behaviours and violence is a deliberate choice
The focus of our program is to teach youth to Recognize, Prevent, and if needed Escape Unhealthy Relationships
Being repeatedly watched, followed, or harassed
Using money or access to accounts to exert power or control
Ex. hitting, shoving, slapping, strangling, using a weapon
Using pressure, alcohol, drugs, or force to have sexual contact against someone's will
The use of technology (such as texting, social networking) to bully, harass, stalk, blackmail or intimidate
Alcohol, Drug Abuse, Stress & Mental Illness cause domestic violence
Domestic Violence in a personal problem between partners
If it were that bad, a person would just leave
Signs of a healthy relationship
Remember, healthy relationships are based on
Equality & Respect
cycle of violence
Challenge what you think you know!
The victim brought it on her/himself. It's not the abuser's fault
toward you, won't accept breaking up?
Checks your cell phone, social networking sites and email
you, gives orders, doesn't take your opinion seriously?
? You worry about how they will react to things you say or do?
you when they
you? Says YOU provoked them, made them do it, led them on?
to "Out You" to your family, friends, teachers?
Has a history of fighting, loses temper quickly or brags about mistreating others?
you from your family & friends?
Adult you trust
Sexting... So what?
No matter what app you use if you send nude photos online, there will always be a copy. Photos can easily be screen captured, forwarded, posted online, and manipulated
Soliciting and forwarding sexts (etc) IS ILLEGAL. Sending nude photos of minors is a criminal offense and breaks child pornography laws.
Sexts are often spread after a relationship ends - remember that your boyfriend or girlfriend may not be as trusting or respectful after a relationship ends.
50% of women
over 16 have been physically or sexually abused (WAVAW, 2014)
