Abuse, or the mistreatment of children or adults, affects people from all walks of life, regardless of culture, education or social status. Abuse can be unintentional or deliberate and occurs within the trusted confines of family, friends, schools, care facilities and neighbourhood.
Forms of abuse can vary and often situations involve “multiple abuses” where two or more types of abuse are occurring simultaneously, such as:
- Child sexual abuse;
- Emotional abuse;
- Institutional abuse, and
- Physical abuse.
