I hope you’re having a nice weekend.
Over the next three weeks, I’d like to discuss different types of abuse. As discussed in earlier blogs, all forms of abuse are damaging to the individual in many different ways. The damage done to the victim’s self-esteem can also make it more difficult to leave the abuser. These reasons were discussed in the 8 part series on ‘Why Women Stay’.
I’ve categorized the different types of abuse into three forms:
- Emotional--verbal, mental, psychological, and spiritual.
- Physical—violence and sexual abuse.
Remember, if we can help just one victim, we’ve done our job.
