Control, Abuse or Violence

Conflict is a normal part of any relationship, but it should never impact your safety.  

Disagreements may become arguments and although feelings may be hurt, in a healthy relationship this conflict can be resolved without physical or emotional pain. 

What is domestic and family violence? 

Domestic and family violence or intimate partner violence refers to a range of abusive or controlling behaviours including:  

  • Physical violence 
  • Emotional or verbal abuse 
  • Coercive control or manipulation

It is often difficult for us to admit when our relationship becomes violent because of the love shared.
