Warning signs of abuse
Anyone can choose to use violence. Although both men and women can be abusive, a high percentage are men. Those who use violence often refuse to accept responsibility for the abuse and attempt to rationalize or blame the other person or people for causing it. Signs of potential danger include jealousy, violent behavior, controlling behavior, verbal abuse, mood swings, isolation, blaming, hypersensitivity, family history, setlist attitude toward the opposite gender, and threats of violence.
