Coping with an abusive relationship, or the end of a relationship due to abuse, can be difficult. While this journey is different for everyone, be sure to watch for some of the unhealthy coping strategies that can arise.

Remember: Abuse is not your fault.
Instead of these unhealthy coping strategies, try talking with a friend or counselor about your feelings, nourishing your body with healthy foods, getting plenty of sleep and exercise, and spending time with people who make you feel good about yourself.

Many perpetrators of domestic violence have never raised a fist.

Gaslighting, constant jealousy or threats, name-calling, body-shaming—these are all ways a person can use words to harm & control an intimate partner.

Domestic violence in the age of coronavirus: What happens when you're stuck at home, but home isn't safe?

"Domestic violence, experts say, is about power and control. In a pandemic, many people feel as though they're losing control and search for healthy ways to cope. But when an abuser feels powerless, it puts their victim at risk."

Read the full story from USA TODAY here; http://ow.ly/CpjC50zErW5

If you or someone you know needs help keeping safe from an abusive relationship, contact the FJC at 716-558-SAFE (7233).

Experts say a social distancing approach to the spread of coronavirus makes domestic violence victims and survivors increasingly vulnerable.
