Domestic violence affects millions of people every year, yet many people don't recognize it when they see it. Those who are aware of a domestic violence situation, whether it is happening to them or a loved one, often don't know how to stop it. This book covers physical abuse as well as other forms of abuse that are harder to spot, such as psychological, emotional, financial, and sexual abuse. Readers will learn how to read the signs that a relationship is abusive, understand the abuser's mindset, and learn strategies for getting free and breaking the cycle of abuse.
