All year long, the Press of Atlantic City, my local newspaper, has been running a series of stories about domestic violence. A couple of months ago, I wrote to the reporters — not everyone who is abused suffers physical harm.
In fact, Lovefraud’s research shows that people who sought therapy because of an abusive relationships reported the following types of abuse:
- Emotional – 98.1%
- Psychological – 95.7%
- Financial – 70.1%
- Sexual – 49.3%
- Physical – 40.9%
- Other – 18.4%
I was interviewed for the most recent article in the series, which appeared today. You can read it here:
