Abuse of Spouse OR Partner
Alternate Names : Domestic Abuse
How is the injury recognized?
There are not always physical signs of spousal abuse.
While cuts and bruises may cause suspicion, emotional symptoms
may not. Victims of abuse are often too afraid to report the abuse.
An jealous partner who is controlling or hostile in public may
be a signal to others that there is abuse. When a friend, family
member, or caregiver suspects abuse, he or she should ask about it
and offer to help.
