Stages of Abuse?
Domestic violence can be divided into three primary stages. The stages differ in time and the intensity, and are generally present in all the phases of domestic violence that may occur between two people.
Stage One: TensionBuilding
This stage one of the domestic violence consists of physical assaults that may occur. In this stage the victim has the ability to calm down with the abuser that had occurred in the past. Many victims may settle down inwardly and deny that their partners are violent. They might smooth over the isolated assaults make different excuses. However, the abusers victims do recognize or believe that these small incidents will generally escalate and lead to big issue later in the future. Victims help themselves to keep the things smooth and running so as not to aggravate the abuser. The psychological stress that a victim endures during this stage is brutal.
Stage Two: Explosion
The stage two of domestic violence is more violent than stage one and the victim can do or say or stop the abuser’s violence. All the tensions are visible in this stage two of domestic violence. The abusers have lost all the self-control and can seriously injure his or her partner by way of heating, in many cases. The phase is shorter then the other stages of domestic violence. However, the abuse that a victim endures during this stage is tormenting and in excess.
Stage Three: Calm/Relief
The stage three of domestic violence is now recognized by both the abuser and the victim. The tension is less and brutalness has released with all the loving kindness. The abusers will in the state of shock, as to what he has done with the partner and the children. Both the abuser and the victim want to believe that the domestic violence will never happen again and they will have self-control over them. The stage involves promises that are made to the victim and the abuser may some shed tears. Stage three is when most victims of domestic violence get the courage to leave.
