There's no justification or reason good enough for someone to hurt, threaten, neglect or take advantage of you. Especially when the person doing it is supposed to care about the victim. Recognising Abusive Relationships is a compelling and informative program that tackles this important issue with sensitivity and openness.
Viewers are provided with straightforward information to help them understand and identify what abuse looks like in family and dating relationships. Forms of abuse (physical, psychological, sexual, neglect) and warning signs are clearly outlined and supported through the dramatised voices of victims sharing their feelings on, and experiences of abuse.
The strength of this program is that it dispels many common excuses of abusers and focuses on empowering the abused. Developed to address middle to senior secondary health and personal development courses, this resource is also a valuable tool for tertiary study in related fields.
