Trusted Las Vegas Domestic Violence Attorney
Social abuse is a less well-known form of
domestic violence. Social abuse is a relatively new term used to describe maltreatment which
occurs in a social setting or involves restricting or prohibiting social contact.
Some examples of social abuse may include the following:
- Coercion of an individual in a social setting
- Collective abuse by a group of people toward one individual
- Prohibiting social contact and activities with others
- Controlling what the victim does and who he or she sees
- Not giving the victim any privacy
- Controlling what the victim wears
Embarrassment, intimidation and
emotional abuse may all be forms of social abuse. This may be committed against a
child or an adult. Social abuse may occur during a divorce, if one parent attempts
to buy a child’s favor with expensive gifts or tries to lay the
blame of the divorce on the child’s shoulders.
