Understanding Post-Separation Abuse and Taking Steps to Safeguard Yourself

Post-separation abuse pertains to a distressing pattern of abusive conduct that arises following the separation or divorce of a couple. In these cases, one former partner employs diverse tactics to maintain control, intimidate, manipulate, or inflict harm upon the other partner, despite the dissolution of their relationship. In particularly high-conflict situations, such as those involving individuals with narcissistic tendencies, life can resemble a challenging cat and mouse game. You may find yourself in the position of the mouse, while your former partner uses the legal system and other strategies to continue their abusive behavior and exert control over you. Nonetheless, there are essential steps you can take to protect yourself in such circumstances. By understanding the nature of post-separation abuse and its potential manifestations, you can empower yourself to create a safer environment and seek the support you need to move forward.
