Rated 3.97/5 based on 932 customer reviews

The abuse may be a single act, but most often it occurs in a context where there is a pattern of assaultive and controlling behaviour.

Any sexual activity that is without your consent is rape or sexual assault.Many women identify the emotional and psychological consequences of abuse as more damaging than the physical assaults.While emotional abuse can occur in the absence of physical abuse, the two often occur together.Tactics of control may appear gradually as coercive behaviours that are not be criminal in nature.This subtle process makes it very difficult for the woman, as well as friends, family or professionals to recognize it as abuse.
