Psychological Abuse in Intimate Partner Relationships
Psychological abuse by an intimate partner can be as dangerous as sexual or physical abuse in terms of putting victims at risk for long-term physical and mental health problems. In a study by the National Violence Against Women Survey, the respondents surveyed reported psychological abuse more often than either physical or sexual abuse. Psychological abuse accounted for more than half the abuse reported by women and more than 75% of the abuse reported by men.
When researchers analyzed the link between health and abuse by an intimate partner, they found significant mental and physical health consequences of victims of physical and psychological abuse. Male and female victims of either form of abuse were more likely than people who didn't suffer abuse to develop chronic physical or mental illness. Also, they were more prone to poor general health, depression injury, and alcohol and drug abuse.
This workshop is designed to assist those who work with perpetrators of intimate partner violence to understand its effects and develop effective counseling approaches in assisting perpetrators in learning how to stop or reduce psychological abuse.
