How to Tell if Your Relationship is Abusive

Many victims of abusive relationships don’t know how to evaluate how potentially violent their partner is.  I’m amazed at how many women who are in abusive relationships cannot see how abusive and controlling it is.  The Minnesota Program Development, a nonprofit agency that works towards the elimination of violence in the lives of women and their children, has developed some very helpful “wheels” that define what an abusve relationship is.  This one is shown below.  They also have “wheels” to describe other relationships too, like healthy ones.  Click here and then “Wheel Gallery” for all of their wheels.  Nice job Duluth.
