Types Of Abuse Worksheet

Suffering from abuse is hurtful, but it is not always easily seen or identifiable. People can commonly find themselves in abusive situations long after it has started, and many do not even realize they are being abused until much later on- or even at all. Abuse is scary to go through, but it is more common than one may expect.

There are different types of abuse a person can go through. Abuse is sometimes tricky because the warning signs are not always easily seen or understood. It is important to help someone in an abusive situation see the warning signs that they are in an abusive situation. This awareness can often help a person overcome their abuser and create a healthier living environment for themselves.
