Relationship Violence

Relationship abuse is the use of intimidation and/or force by one person to maintain power over another. It can include any form of verbal, emotional, mental, physical spiritual and/or sexual abuse or violence, and can happen in all types of relationships. In an abusive relationship it is not unusual for the abuser to express remorse after a violent outburst and then ask for forgiveness, promising that “it will never happen again.” Unfortunately, it usually does, thus perpetuating a cycle of abuse.

Sexual Assaults

At least 50% of sexual assaults involve alcohol or drugs. 90% of rape survivors were assaulted by someone they knew. If your friends are avid partiers, then you may know that partying, drinking, and/or using drugs can be risky. Besides the dangers of alcohol poisoning and driving under the influence, alcohol and drugs can increase a person’s risk of being sexually assaulted. Keep in mind that while risk management can minimize danger, intoxication is not a substitute for consent nor does it give anyone permission to harm you. Here are some tips on how to help a friend enjoy parties while staying safe.

Sexual Harrassments

Sexual harassment is any unwelcome sexual advance. This includes requests for sexual favors and other verbal, visual or physical conduct of a sexual nature that interferes with your work or education. It may also create an intimidating, hostile or offensive work or learning environment. Sexual harassment commonly occurs, but is infrequently discussed, as it often makes people feel uneasy. We hear people joke about it, but when it happens, it can cause emotional, psychological, physical and material harm. The specific impact varies from person to person. Remember, sexual harassment is against the law and university policy. For UC Davis Policy, click here.

Stalking

Stalking is unwanted pursuit. Many victims are stalked by current or former intimate partners such as dating partners, spouses, or cohabiting partners. What was viewed initially as positive and/or romantic attention, may turn into the repeated unwanted attention, harassment, and contact that characterizes stalking. However, it’s important to remember that a stalker can also be an acquaintance or someone you do not know.
