Donna Andersen talks about relationship abuse in the Press of Atlantic City

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:
