          9 Warning Signs Of An Abusive Relationship

          April 19, 2016

          PLAYING 9 Warning Signs Of An Abusive Relationship
          In an abusive relationship, there are often consistent warning signs.

          When Georgia Smiled: The Robin McGraw Revelation Foundation creates and advances programs that help victims of domestic violence and sexual assault live healthy, safe and joy-filled lives.

          Through the foundation, Robin has created the Aspire Initiative, a free domestic violence education curriculum for tweens, teens and adults, to reduce the level of intimate relationship violence in the United States. She has also created the Aspire News App, which has been recognized on Capitol Hill and on the floor of the United Nations as one of the most meaningful apps in the fight against domestic violence.

          Here is a list of nine potential warning signs you or someone you know may be involved in an abusive relationship:

          1. Quick involvement in a relationship
          2. Extreme jealousy
          3. Controlling behavior
          4. Threats of violence
          5. Abrupt mood changes
          6. Verbal abuse
          7. Breaking objects
          8. Use of force during an argument
          9. History of past battering
          In the video above, Dr. Phil talks with Destinee and Shaila about their relationship, and whether they see any warning signs in their own behavior toward each other.
