Possessive and controlling behaviors don’t always appear overnight, but rather emerge and intensify as the relationship grows.
If you’re beginning to feel as if your partner or a loved one’s partner is becoming abusive, there are a few behaviors that you can look out for.
Abusive behavior isn’t as simple as we, as a society, want it to be.
In fact, the leading cause of death in pregnant women is domestic homicide, which is to say they are killed by their intimate partners.
The Campaign is funded by grants from the Verizon Foundation, Verizon Wireless, Macy’s Foundation, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. At CSU, look for red flags around campus to direct you to workshops in October (Relationship Violence Awareness Month) and April (Sexual Assault Awareness Month).
If you’re concerned about some of these things happening in your relationship, please feel free to give us a call at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).
Research indicates that in 1 in 5 college students experience dating violence.*The Red Flag Campaign uses a bystander intervention strategy to address and prevent sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking on college campuses.
Also look for posters around campus that talk about various red flags in relationships.
And come to WGAC events to create your own red flags to be displayed throughout campus!
