Transcript of Domestic abuse

Domestic Abuse. By: Keefe Barry The amount of domestic violence cases is thought to increase every year, the only problem with this statistic is no one keeps track of how many cases there are but people who pay attention to it say that it seems to be increasing every year. Domestic abuse can cause mental
health problems that can cause
someone to not be able to live
their life without fear or to
their true potential. It is proven that some people can feel stuck with the person that is abusing them and stay with them out of fear. These people often seek no help because they think that no one can help them with the problem. Psychological warning signs:
Have very low self-esteem, even if they used to be confident.
Show major personality changes (e.g. an outgoing person becomes withdrawn).
Be depressed, anxious, or suicidal.
not all cases are the same.
isolation signs:
Be restricted from seeing family and friends.
Rarely go out in public without their partner.
Have limited access to money, credit cards, or the car.

Things to do if you see someone with these signs:
Ask if something is wrong.
Express concern.
Listen and validate.
Offer help.
Support his or her decisions.

things not to do:
Wait for him or her to come to you.
Judge or blame.
Pressure him or her.
Give advice.
Place conditions on your support Are you in a abusive relationship?
feel afraid of your partner much of the time?
avoid certain topics out of fear of angering your partner?
feel that you can’t do anything right for your partner?
believe that you deserve to be hurt or mistreated?
wonder if you’re the one who is crazy?
feel emotionally numb or helpless?
For people who are experiencing such things there are people who can help, and places you can go for help. Infact there is a domestic abuse hotline for anyone having trouble. 888-743-5754. That isn't the only option you can take. If you are a person who does not feel comfortable talking to a random person about it and you want someone trustworthy you can simply call the police, a trusted friend that can find you help or go to a councelor. You always want to have a saftey plan for when the abuse occurs to make sure you are going to be okay until you can get help. There is also emotional abuse where one partner makes the other question their every thought and watch what they say to try to always please the other so they dont get criticised or bad mouthed about themselves. People experiencing this will feel like a prisoner and feel they need to please the other to make it stop, the only catch is that most people don't relize that this is a type of abuse.
