Anyone can be an abuser. Abusers come from all different backgrounds. The abuser could be a partner, relative, teacher, neighbor, etc. It is extremely important to know the warning signs of an abuser.

ISOLATION: Insists that their partner spend all or most of their time together, cutting them off from their  friends or family.

NEED FOR CONTROL: Displays extreme anger when things don't go their way or attempts to make all of their partner's decisions.

POSSESSION & JEALOUSY: Accuses their partner of flirting or having sexual relationships with others, as well as monitoring their clothing and makeup.

INTRUSION: Constantly asking what their partner is doing, who they are with, and where they are going.

SCAPEGOATING: Putting the blame on their partner instead of taking responsibility.
