|Power And Control Wheel
|The chart below is a way of looking at the behaviors abusers use to get and keep control in their relationships.
Battering is a choice. It is used to gain power and control over another person.
Physical abuse is only one part of a system of abusive behaviors.
Abuse is never a one time event.
This chart uses the wheel to show the relationship of physical abuse to other forms of abuse. Each part shows
a way to control or gain power.
