Violence in any form has a lasting impact on the victims. Some who are ignorant towards what violence is, want to see a bruise, but realistically violent has many facets, but today we are speaking of violence holistically, Recently with the help of CJN Noma Tshabalala, spoke on this topic Different types of abuse against women and children on Setsoto FM, Her show is every Thursday’s 18:30 pm, with the recent media reports on attacks on women and children Noma from Ficksburg Advice Centre, tackled the topic with the vision to inform, educate and be a sympathetic ear to the viewer and willing to give tangible advice to the community of Ficksburg and surrounding areas.
Without going too much into detail, let us look at, Types of woman abuse have been identified?
- Physical Abuse
- Psychological/Emotional Abuse
- Sexual Abuse
- Verbal Abuse
- Financial Abuse
- StalkingSocial Abuse
- Using Children
- Environmental Abuse
- Using Privilege/Social Status
As I have illustrated the different tactics of abuse it is found that the impact will be different for every woman and child or men. You may not see any signs of abuse, but that doesn’t mean the warning signs aren’t present. The list above groups tactics and gives many examples. No list of examples can be exhaustive. Women who experience abuse may not separate their experiences into distinct categories.
