Abuse of Spouse OR Partner

Alternate Names : Domestic Abuse

Abuse of Spouse OR Partner | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

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.
