Three types of relationship violence:
Verbal or Emotional Abuse
Physical Abuse
Sexual Abuse
Verbal or Emotional Abuse:
Involves humiliating, isolating, criticizing, and stalking
As well as economic abuse such as controlling the finances or preventing the partner from working.
People who use verbal or emotional abuse are more likely to escalate to physical abuse.

Involves threats of violence as well as pushing, hitting, slapping, kicking, choking, throwing things at the partner and breaking things.
Sexual Abuse:
involves touching that is unwanted
accusations of sexual infidelity without reason
forced sex and referring to the partner with abusive sexual terms
Compilation of signs or characteristics the University of New York in Buffalo have researched about abusive tenancies in individuals:
belittles, insults, or ignores you
control pieces of your life; for example, the way you dress or who you can be friends with
gets jealous without reason
is so angry or threatening that you’ve changed your life so as not to provoke additional anger
The Effects of Violence
Consequences to relationship violence:
Psychological injuries:

Psychological difficulties may include, depression, anxiety, fear of intimacy, and of course low self-esteem.
Physical Injuries:
Physical injuries may range from scratches and bruises to broken bones, knife wounds, and damage to the central nervous system.
Economical "injuries":
It's been estimated that relationship violence costs the United States approximately $6.2 billion for physical assaults and almost $500 million for rape annually.
Relationship violence prevents women from maintaining jobs or continuing their education.
The Alternatives of Relationship Violence
Differences between a nonviolent relationship and violent relationship:
Instead of emotional abuse, there is fairness; you look for mutually fair resolutions to conflicts.
Instead of control and isolation, there is communication that makes each partner feel safe and comfortable expressing himself or herself.
Instead of intimidation, there is mutual respect, affirmation, and valuing of opinions.
Instead of sexual abuse, there is trust and respect for what each person wants and doesn't want.
Instead of economic abuse, there is cooperation; the partners make financial decisions together.
ahhhh!!
