Financial bullying and abuse are topics that aren’t discussed often, yet most domestic abuse cases actually begin with a subtle form of financial control.
The Center for Financial Security recently conducted a study that showed that 99% of people who experience domestic abuse also experience financial abuse from their partners. The study also found that most domestic abuse cases actually begin with a subtle form of financial control that escalates into physical, verbal, or emotional abuse. Unfortunately, financial abuse is not talked about as often as other forms of abuse, and it’s because of this lack of education that many people unwittingly miss the warning signs. This episode discusses these warning signs, and also shares how to get help if you’re the victim of a financial bully.
