Intimate Partner Violence: More Than Physical Abuse

Depriving her of sleep, interfering with her transportation, calling her degrading names. Despite public opinion, and despite the lack of physical violence, these are all forms of abuse—with emotional abuse being one of many tactics that domestic violence abusers use to assert control over their intimate partners.

As a student at Boston College Law School, I had the opportunity to give back to one of my favorite non-profits, Transition House, Inc. (http://www.thouse.org/), by creating a report to educate the public regarding the severe impact of emotional abuse, an often misunderstood form of domestic violence. And with October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the timing couldn’t be better to share some of my findings with all of you! Check out the full report below and feel free to get in touch if you would like to  further discuss this pressing issue.
