Cycle of Abuse


The Cycle of Abuse was developed in the late 1970’s. It is here in an adapted form. It is a useful tool that can help make sense of what often happens in an abusive relationship. There are often 3 distinct phases in an abusive relationship. Each phase of the relationship is abusive, but in different ways and with different effects.
