Abuse is a behaviour abnormality that demands for control and power. It can be in many forms such as physical, verbal, mental or sexual.

Stats:

No statistics available.

Symptoms:

No definitive symptoms are noted, but in the victims of abuse a sure sign is a sadness or anger. These accompany an abuse in almost all cases as a reaction to the assault.

Treatment:

Counselling is an important part to strengthen the confidence required to get over the abuse. Prevention plays a crucial role and a psychologist will discuss the necessary steps required to avoid any further damage. Controlling the cause may not be the only essential step but a wholesome plan has to be created to help the victim recover from the stress of the abusive incident or life.

Most patients recover over time and therapy may be required to continuously monitor for any signs of relapse and to prevent memory of the abuse causing any further illness or behavioural reaction.
