Misuse of Power

CWAV_12.JPGWe believe that violence and abuse is frequently about the misuse of power, or 'power over' in which power is about feeling dominant or powerful at the expense of someone else, by hurting, controlling, manipulating, threatening or forcing your will on someone else. Feeling powerful can also mean feeling capable, strong and able to influence things around you without being harmful to others, or 'power with'. We all want to feel empowered in our relationships, and positive relationships are based on equality, respect, negotiation and compromise. Choose respect!
