What is Physical Abuse?

Physical abuse is an unmistakable red flag of domestic violence that often escalates in severity over time and can lead to homicide.

We've prepared a toolkit to help you understand what physical abuse is so you can better assess and understand your situation. You can download the toolkit here, or by using the pink VIEW TOOLKIT button above.

Inside you’ll find links to helpful articles, recommended books, checklists, relevant survivor survey results, support communities and how to find help.

Remember, survivors are strong, capable and perseverant. Help is out there, though, and it’s important for survivors to know they don’t have to tackle the healing process alone.
