Types of family and sexual violence

Physical Abuse

Any intentional and unwanted bodily contact. Sometimes abusive behavior does not cause pain or even leave a bruise, but it's still unhealthy.

Emotional Abuse

Non-physical behaviors such as threats, insults, constant monitoring, excessive texting, humiliation, intimidation, isolation or stalking.

Financial Abuse

Can include telling you what you can and cannot buy or require you to share control of your bank accounts.


When a person you may or may not know repeatedly watches, follows or harasses you, making you feel afraid and unsafe.

Digital Abuse

The use of technologies to bully, harass, stalk or intimidate a partner. Often this behavior is a form of verbal or emotional abuse perpetrated online.

Sexual Violence

Refers to any action that pressures or coerces someone to do something sexually they don't want to do.
