Social Abuse

Social abuse is a less well-known form of domestic violence. Social abuse is a relatively new term used to describe maltreatment which occurs in a social setting or involves restricting or prohibiting social contact.

Some examples of social abuse may include the following:

  • Coercion of an individual in a social setting
  • Collective abuse by a group of people toward one individual
  • Prohibiting social contact and activities with others
  • Controlling what the victim does and who he or she sees
  • Not giving the victim any privacy
  • Controlling what the victim wears

Embarrassment, intimidation and emotional abuse may all be forms of social abuse. This may be committed against a child or an adult. Social abuse may occur during a divorce, if one parent attempts to buy a child’s favor with expensive gifts or tries to lay the blame of the divorce on the child’s shoulders.
