diagnose or provide therapy; it is the development of a compassionate and
forthright conversation that ultimately helps a student in trouble find

Facts about abusive relationships:
Abusive relationships are marked by strategies used by one
person to maintain power and control over another. Because of the dynamics of
an abusive relationship, victims may feel trapped and fearful of their
partner’s anger, violence and/or abandonment, and thus may be reticent to
disclose information about their relationship, even when abuse is suspected.
Abuse can be physical, sexual, emotional or verbal.
