What is Psychological Abuse?
Psychological abuse involves the purposeful infliction of emotional or mental distress by method of humiliation, threat or some other verbal or non-verbal conduct.
Victims of severe psychological or emotional abuse often require psychiatric counselling and mental rehabilitation. The financial compensation you receive as a result of a psychological abuse claim can be used to pay for the cost of psychiatric treatment, and can also be used to pay household bills incurred during a period spent out of work.
What are the symptoms of Psychological Abuse?
The repercussions of psychological and emotional abuse can manifest themselves in many ways. If you or someone you know has suffered a significant psychological trauma or a sustained period of abuse, they may exhibit some of the following symptoms:
- Recurring memories of the upsetting event
- Upsetting and seemingly inexplicable emotional outbursts
- Frightening memories
- A sense of constant danger
- Feeling numb and disconnected
- Unwillingness to place your trust in others
If you suspect that you, or someone you know, have been psychologically abused, the first thing you should do is consult a psychiatric professional or your GP. Once psychological abuse is confirmed, the personal injury solicitors at Farleys are here to help you claim the appropriate financial compensation.
