Abusive Relationships and Domestic Violence
Domestic violence often seems clear-cut, but some forms of abuse are not as easy to identify as physical abuse. Emotional abuse leaves no visible marks, although its effect on a person's psyche can be just as devastating. Understanding abuse is the first step toward ending an abusive relationship. Enlightening charts, annotated quotes from experts, and real-world examples help young adults identify abuse in relationships with romantic partners, close friends, or family members. This knowledge gives them the tools they need to break free of an unhealthy relationship or help a loved one do the same.
