What Is Psychological Abuse?

Psychological abuse can be defined as the systematic use of malicious manipulation through nonphysical acts against an intimate partner, child, or dependent adult. Also known as emotional abuse, these actions can include threatening the physical health of the victim or the victim’s loved ones, purposely controlling the victim’s freedom, and/or acting to undermine or isolate the victim. Psychological abuse can occur prior to physical, sexual, or other abuses. However, it can also happen at the same time as they occur. Even when it occurs by itself, it is thought to cause long-term damage to the victim’s mental health.
