Domestic Violence Awareness Month


Social Abuse is actual or threatened, through forced isolation from family and friends. By isolating a woman from her support networks, the perpetrator is attempting to assert power and control over her. Without a network of friends and family to support her, a woman can find it very difficult to leave an abusive relationship.’

For example:

  • Systematic isolation from family and friends
  • Monitoring where people are
  • Reading messages on phones, emails
  • Smashing phones
  • Deciding which friends and family members a woman can talk to and spend time with
  • Continuously criticising a woman’s friends and family
  • Not allowing a woman to meet or spend time with neighbours
  • Moving the person far away so they cannot reach family or friends
  • Verbally and/or physically abusing a woman in public or in front of other people.

The National Sexual Assault, Family & Domestic Violence Counselling Line – 1800 RESPECT (1800 737 732) – is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for any Australian who has experienced, or is at risk of, family and domestic violence and/or sexual assault.
