Recognizing Abusive Relationships

"There's no justification or reason good enough for someone to hurt, threaten, neglect or take advantage of you. Especially when the person doing it is supposed to care about the victim." Recognizing Abusive Relationships is a compelling and informative program that tackles this important issue with sensitivity and openness. Viewers are provided with straightforward information to help them understand and identify what abuse looks like in family and dating relationships. Forms of abuse (physical, psychological, sexual, neglect) and warning signs are clearly outlined and supported through the dramatized voices of victims sharing their feelings on, and experiences of abuse. The strength of this program is that it dispels many common excuses of abusers and focuses on empowering the abused. Developed to address middle to senior high health and guidance courses, this resource is also a valuable tool for tertiary study in related fields.

Recognizing Abuse
There is no excuse or justification for abuse. Abuse is about power and control, and doesn't happen by accident. Victims find it hard to tell when someone they know is crossing a relationship boundary.
