"I Just Work Here" presents: Well What Have We Here?

Up to this point I have grossly (and intentionally) underplayed the control and manipulation factor that often accompanies domestic violence. Almost all abusers will not only act violently towards their partner, but they will emotionally abuse and manipulate them as well. In fact, in most cases this abuse is far worse than anything they do physically to their partner; the effects are much longer-lasting and harder to overcome. This kind of abuse is designed to control the other person and ensure they don't leave the relationship.

If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence, you can visit the The National Domestic Violence Hotline webpage and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention page on domestic violence.
