Before I had no idea that breaking things, threatening with violence and using someone's money without permission can also be violence.

Recognize the signs

of domestic

violence & abuse


What? X

How to recognize the signs of violence? Physical violence: hitting, kicking, biting, slapping, shaking, pushing, choking, pulling hair, stabbing, burning, hitting with an object, threatening with a weapon, or threatening to physically assault another individual.

Violence does not disappear with silence

Emotional violence: name-calling, punishing, humiliating, intimidating, threatening, exasperating, tightening, controlling, stalking or isolating.

If your own resources are not enough to change your current situation, get professional help. This is especially important if the violence has persisted for a long time or if there are children in the family.

Financial violence: coercion into financial dependency, control of another's money or unauthorized use of another person's money or property.

Even if you are afraid to talk, it is worth it. The sooner you identify situation, the better. Violence does not disappear with silence.

Abuse or negligence: leaving a child, elderly person or disabled person without care, help or treatment in situations where the victim is dependent on another person, harming another person with drugs, intoxicants, chemicals or solvents.
