ABUSE IS NOT JUST PHYSICAL
Being hit, slapped, punched, dragged, choked, restrained, or pushed are all some examples of physical abuse. But many women are abused mentally and verbally even though their partner never actually causes physical pain.
October is Domestic Abuse Awareness Month and Restoration Advocates created a Shades of Abuse campaign to illustrate what mental and verbal abuse may look like. See the images below.
