You may remember that we updated the classic Power and Control wheel for the digital age. Now we’ve updated it to illustrate the ways that we see COVID-19 being weaponized by abusers to manipulate relationships.


“Shadow Pandemic”; rates of abuse and intimate partner violence rocketing across the globe as a consequence of quarantine.


As reported by many media outlets, support organizations and emergency hotlines have seen calls surge as victims are forced by the pandemic in to homes with those who physically and psychologically abuse them. We hope this helps you understand and identify what intimate partner violence looks like right now.

Remember: You can take back power and control! Our team has never been more devoted to helping you. We are fully staffed (working remotely) contact us here or call 646-666-8908 to schedule a case evaluation.
