Will an abuser limit him or herself to one form of domestic violence?

Probably no. The sad fact is that several forms of abuse physical, mental, psychological often go on at one time in the same household. The movie Gaslight depicted a diabolical husband’s concerted -- and inventive -- efforts to destroy his wife’s sanity and do so without putting a hand on her.

A woman who is married to a bully sadly learns that often there seems to be no limit to his inventiveness when it comes to abuse. Nor is there much predictability about what will trigger outbursts.
