The chart “Power and Control Tactics Used Against Immigrant Women” describes some of the ways that immigrant women are abused, although the experiences of individual victims will vary from case to case.
Abuse topics described include:
- Emotional Abuse
- Economic Abuse
- Sexual Abuse
- Using Coercion and Threats
- Using citizenship or Residency Privilege
- Minimizing, Denying, Blaming
The Chart supplements and is an adaptation of the “Power and Control” Wheel produced by the Domestic Abuse Intervention Project. This is to be read together with the handbook “Working with Battered Immigrant Women: A Handbook to Make Services Accessible.”
