  • Am I afraid of my partner most of the time?

  • Does my partner isolate me from family and friends?

  • Is my partner irrationally jealous?

  • Do I feel emotionally numb or helpless?

  • Does my partner criticize me and put me down?

  • Has my partner hurt me, or threatened to hurt or kill me?

  • Has my partner threatened to take my children away or harm them?

  • Has my partner forced me to have sex?

  • Does my partner limit my access to money, the phone, or the car
