Is it Abuse? (A Resource Guide)

Posted by   + Show Post

Hi Ladies,

As a future Social Worker, I felt it would be good to have a post in the Love and Marriage group that has information about the different types of abuse - and yes, there is more than just physical abuse.  I have listed some links below, and I hope that everyone will add more resources and /or stories so that we can keep it on top as a primary resource.  Feel free to include resources and information about abuse within an adult relationship, child abuse/neglect, and elder abuse.  It's not a fun topic, but I think it's vital that we have these resources available!

Here are a few links to get us started:

Here's a link to a post in the Babies group for more info about domestic violence: http://www.cafemom.com/group/babies/forums/read/17029403/Dv_info?last#last

I'm in a very toxic relationship, we are not married and have three kids. I very badly want out but I have nothing to my name he took it all away, from my job to junking my car to making me push family away, making me quit school and not letting me build credit! My parents don't seem to care, they have helped my older sister buy a business and even take her on vacations, paying for her friends as well. I have no one :(

((HUGS)) and I'm so sorry they're not interested in helping you, especially since you really need it. You should check out this group - they may have some more info to help you get free: Domestic Violence Survivors: Power of Being Free
