This isolation time is a hot spot for domestic abuse and there has been a spike in crimes being reported.
Domestic abuse isn’t always physical – it’s a pattern of controlling, threatening, and coercive behavior, that can also be emotional, economic, psychological or sexual. Abuse is a choice a perpetrator makes and isolation is already used by many perpetrators as a tool of control.
