Sexual Violence Continuum


This continuum* contains behaviors which fall under the term sexual violence and are emotionally/psychologically abusive. Some of the actions included in the "least severe" part of the continuum are considered to be common ways to show anger for many people and often are not thought to be especially abusive. However, like all abuse, these behaviors are attempts to control ones partner through harm and the threat of harm. Additional continuum behaviors that appear on this site are as follows: Sexual Harassment, Stalking, Sexual Assault, and IPV/Dating Violence.
