Imposition of conduct.

These are acts related to giving orders, abusive insistence, social blocking, among others.

Intense emotion that is experienced when there is an exaggerated desire to exclusively possess your partner.

Some examples are:

  • Your partner checks your cell phone / laptop.

  • Constantly questions you.

  • Be jealous of your friends and / or family.

Here I present 6 types of psychological violence that most of the time we do not know how to recognize until we feel that something is wrong, manipulation is an essential part until we become puppets and they make us believe that the problem is us.

Psychological violence occurs not only in women but also in men, between close family members and friends. The important thing is to realize it in time and take the necessary measures so that it does not affect our lives and our environment. Above all, try to educate our children in the best way so that it does not influence their formation and they repeat behavior patterns in the future. Remember, who loves does not hurt.
