Domestic Violence Power & Control Wheel

It’s been awhile since this was originally posted so we thought we should bring it to the forefront of people’s awareness.

This wheel is used to understand the complicated dynamics of domestic violence and some of the forms it can take.  Domestic violence as you can see is not just physical.

To learn more about the Power and Control Wheel, visit the Home of the Duluth Model online.



Power and Control

Domestic Violence Is:  a pattern of emotional and/or physical behaviors by one partner to restrict the choices and freedoms of another.

Physical, verbal, or emotional-domestic violence is all about power and control.
