Stories of Abuse
Sometimes, hearing others' stories can help us better understand our own situation. On this page there are four such stories. The first three stories reflect different types of abuse in non-institutional settings. The fourth story, Jenny's Story, is not about abuse, but rather, how to plan for the future. These stories are fictional.
You can view these stories in two forms:
- (i) written form · which is followed by a series of questions and answers that will help you understand possible legal remedies for the situations
- (ii) audio form · which include those same questions and answers in the form of a discussion
Your situation may be different and therefore you may require different information.
